Award Winning Lancashire Wedding Photographer
07/04/2018

Wedisson Award Winner Again! A short time ago I took a couple to Formby Beach for a Post Wedding Shoot.  We had great ideas about a 'Trash the Dress' style shoot where the couple would be in the sea but after a couple of hours in the surrounding forest we were all getting rather cold, so the thought of getting wet was more than we could cope with! Dave and Lisa were amazing to work with - relaxed, comfortable with being posed and obviously very...

Wedding Photography Crypto Payments Now Accepted
03/01/2018

We all have to keep up with the times and the world of Photography is a fast-changing one.  Not only do I have to keep up with the latest camera technology, photography styles and trends but as a fast growing business I have to keep up with modern business practices too. Our business is heavily automated, all out client bookings and contracts are very much a hands-off way off working - we literally just press the button and the magic elves do all...

Neil Ridley - Lancashire Wedding Photographer
13/12/2017

From Military Policeman to Lancashire Wedding Photographer?   People often ask how I ended up changing from a career as a Military Policeman to becoming a Full Time Professional Wedding Photographer in Lancashire? The answer is quite simple, my passion for Photography has been there for as long as I can remember. I joined the Royal Air Force when I was 19 years old as a Military Policeman. Fortunately for me this also included some camera...

Goodbye to The Photo Chap
11/12/2017

As some of you may have noticed, we recently went through a company rebrand (not something I would ever do again).  I honestly thought it would be an easy task, simply change the logo's on a few images, copy everything across to the new website and I would be back up and running in time for dinner.  Oh no.  There are video's to re-edit, entire blog posts to re-write, the company insurance to amend, even the camera's needed to be reprogrammed so...

Sam Joins Neil Ridley Photography.
01/12/2017

Sam's Journey From International Air Stewardess to Business Manager   By mid-summer of a very busy 2017 it was becoming more and more evident that as my business evolved and grew, I would need to employ a second body. I needed someone who could help with the administration and management side of the business. My wife, Sam helped out when she could but she was busy with her own career. However, it would appear that fate would lend a helping...

Yet another new website
11/08/2017

It's my annual website overhaul time again!  I last gave the site a facelift in June 2016 and it looked quite nice (at the time).  However time rolls on and it was looking a bit sad, neglected and dated.  So I spent a few days hunting around, stalking other photographers and stealing ideas and I finally came up with this new layout :) Image heavy, as it should be for a photographer, cleaner, faster and it has shiny buttons that work! Have a...

Wedisson Award!!
04/02/2017

  Wedisson Award Winner!! I'm really happy to announce that I have won an International Wedisson Award in the 23rd collection. The winning photo is from Rob and Emma's Lake District Wedding which took place in Cathedral Cavern near to Langdale. Despite it being one of the most technically challenging locations I have shot in, I loved shooting in Cathedral Cavern. Access is via a steep path, followed by a short dripping tunnel which opens up...
