New Studio, New Book!

Hello Everyone,

                        I hope we are all well and good? So, I have some fantastic news to share with you today! Over the past few months I've been searching for a new studio to shoot the main bulk of my work in. I'd looked at a few places, but nothing seemed right! They were either too big, too small or just awful! I ended up finding a lovely little place near New Islington (just outside Manchester City Centre) and it's perfect. Don't get me wrong, I had to do a lot of work to the place to get it up to my standard, but I'm nearly finished with it, and almost ready to open it up for business!

The plan is to start shooting my second book in the studio, and it's all about male style within Manchester! I moved to Manchester about 4 months ago from a little place in the Midlands called Northampton, and I love it here. Even though I have lived in many different places within the UK, I find that people from Manchester are the most friendly, and have the most individual style. People just wear what they want, and have no issues with what other people think. The best way of course! So at the moment I'm looking for all kinds of different men with individual style. Whether it's tattoos, piercings, a certain way of dressing, I want to hear from you! All you have to do is fill in the form below, and tell me why you think your style is a cut about the rest!

Please note: You will not be paid for the photoshoot, but you will receive copies of your photographs in print or on disk and be feature in this new book giving you exposure!

I Got The KEY!!

Hi Everyone!

                    I hope we're all doing well! Today is a big day for me as I have received my key to my new studio in Manchester! I'm really excited to get in there. Although there is a little bit of work to do on the studio before it is fully functioning, I'm really looking forward to it opening full time!

I have big plans for it. I don't want it to just be a studio, I would also like it to be a place where people can come and talk creatively and openly about their ideas, and future projects. 

As well as this I would also like to have a small section where my t-shirt designs can hang and for people to enjoy and buy, as well as some more one off affordable things such as badges, stickers and bumper stickers.

I will post a few wonderful pictures when the studio is finished, so you can check it out and enjoy!

Take it easy,

James :D

Looking for Male Models in and around Manchester!


         Here at James Phoenix Hill Photography we are currently scouting for Male Models to be a part of a new project. We are in the pre production stages of creating a new book full of beautiful images of men. We really want to show the different styles, and looks of guys in and around Manchester to show the rest of the country what this city is all about.

The types of guys we are looking for have to be confident enough to pose in front of a camera, and to be able to show their personality through a series of shots. Experience isn't a necessity, but it does help. 

We are generally looking for men with sculpted bodies, tattoos, piercings, beards or just a different sense of style that stands out from the crowd.

Payment isn't available with this project, but you will receive professional prints of your best shots, and a credit for when the book is published. It's a great chance for you to be seen, and a great credit to have on your C.V.

If you think you have what it takes to be a part of this wonderful new project then please e-mail: with a brief description about yourself and three recent photos.

Good Luck!

James Phoenix Hill
