Steve Hampson is one of Manchester's premier music photographers. Music been a passion of his for as long as he can remember, since he was old enough to sneak into gigs down at the local pub. And his camera is something he's never been able to live without.  

A Manc born and bred, Steve has been attending gigs in the city for over 30 years, and his now following in the footsteps of outstanding photographers like Kevin Cummings.

Steve loves nothing more than descending the steps into a dingy basement in the Northern Quarter and photographing the next big thing or one of the country's most iconic acts. From The Who to The Courteeners, Alabama Shakes to Patti Smith, Steve is never far from the music.

The North, and Manchester in particular, has produced some of the biggest and best acts in the music industry, including Joy Division, The Smiths and Oasis. Capturing their essence and their appeal requires a photographer who loves the sound they make. That's where Steve comes in. 

Contact Steve today and invite him down to any gig in the North West of England. He'll capture the atmosphere and emotion of a live performance, and the prints he produces in both black and white, and full colour, will be just what artists, managers, fans and agents are looking for.
