Hi my name is Matt Eachus, and I am The Manc Photographer.
Just so you know a little about me, I am a professional freelance photographer based in Manchester, however photographing across the globe. I have been shooting for as long as I can remember, however professionally since 2011. I specialise in many fields - including the gigs, festivals, events, corporate and wedding photography.
In relation to certifications and qualifications, I am part of the Nikon Professional scheme. I obtained A levels at the highest grades in the study of Photography, although a few years back now I may add!
On the other hand, the company The Manc Photographer brand sites under, creates bespoke websites for clients across the UK. Within that field I hold an advanced MCSE, am a certified Microsoft IT professional and also have a BSC honours in Web Systems Design.
Whilst being a professional freelance photographer, I've held residencies with Download Festival, V Festival (Chelmsford), Leeds Festival, Latitude Festival, Live Nation Music, Manchester Academy Venues (1, 2, 3, 4), Hideout Festival in Croatia, Annie Mac Lost&Found Festival Malta and Warehouse Project Manchester. I always need to pinch myself and remember the amazing people and companies I have had the privilege of making content for.
I have worked with bands and solo artists during tour and commissioned events such as Lady Gaga (covering just under ten of her UK tour dates for Live Nation), McBusted (covering nine of their UK tours dates), Bad Company (covering nine of their UK tour dates), Joe & Caspar (covering five of their UK tour dates). Biffy Clyro, Justin Beiber, Pink, Rudimental, The Gaslight Anthem, Black Label Society, Bastille, Clean Bandit, Foxes, Katy B, George Ezra, Sam Smith, Snoop Dogg, Jess Glynne, We are the Ocean, Ella Eyre and hundereds more, just see my Live & Loud page for more examples.

I love people and most of all love creating unique media to be used by my clients! Hopefully you can see that by this website I built and the brand and image I have spent so much time on developing. I'm proud to say I've had the opportunity to photograph such incredible artists, however that isn't the be all and end all - working with amazing people is.
