Scarefest – Halloween at Alton Towers Event photography & Video

Since Halloween is coming up, thought we’d share these again – photographs from covering the Scarefest event at Alton Towers.

The project 42 maze at Alton Towers’ Scarefest event 2018


Every year the theme park goes bonkers for Halloween and runs special events throughout October and November – from special themed mazes to street theatre, stage shows and even the chance to ride their famous rollercoaster into the night. We went along at the start of the campaign to photograph and film the action.

Seen some nice photographers make-up in my time, but this stuff is just great.


Are you ready to join us at this year’s terrifyingly fangtastic Scarefest event with spooks, frights and thrills for everyone? This unmissable event takes place on selected dates as the Resort becomes home to Halloween. Open until late so you can enjoy your favourite rides in the dark – and for the first time Wicker Man’s flames lighting up the night sky!

We love an interesting photo opportunity!

For younger visitors, there are live shows, a new addition to our famous ‘freaky four’ to meet.  Older families will find laughs and frights in our House of Monsters maze. For those in search of spine-tingling terror, you’ll need your wits about you when you enter our terrifying scare mazes….including the new Project 42.

Scarefest – Halloween at Alton Towers Event – Project 42

New for this year is Project 42, a scare maze which will be located in Forbidden Valley. Whilst more details are expected to be revealed in the coming months, based on recent construction work, it’s likely that this attraction will be located on the Nemesis: Sub-Terra site, where the existing building and queue-line can be utilised.

This new addition will replace the Resort’s iconic Terror of the Towers: What Lies Within, which will not be returning, having run on and off since 2002. Terror of the Towers has seen many changes over the years, most recently to the route, which allowed for three mazes to operate within the Towers.

Always nice to have interesting subjects to photograph.

Despite being well recognised and liked, many enthusiasts have agreed that it has offered little new in recent years as well having a weaker overall narrative when compared Alton Towers’ more recent maze additions.

Also departing this year is the Freak Show scare zone, which saw a carnival of freaks occupy the path between Spinball Whizzer and X-Sector, which allowed a wider range of guests to experience a range of scares and laughs.


Returning this year are the Resort’s award winning mazes; Altonville Mine Tours: Uncover the Legend of the Skin Snatchers and Sub Species: The End Games, as well the return of last year’s new addition; The Welcoming – Be Chosen, which is due to return to the Wicker Man area.


Alton Towers Resort are promising that the mazes will be “re-scarified” for this year, although what this might mean in practice, hasn’t been confirmed. See more here

Manchester headshot photography guide

Corporate portraits – guidelines for organisers

We can shoot to your corporate style guide, if you have one. If not we can shoot (a) in the context of your business – with a soft focus background lending some element of your story – or (b) we can bring in a backdrop to match any colour you want / match brand guidelines. See below. Do you want corporate logo in shot? If so can it be positioned to same height as subject? Always worth a quick chat in advance so as to make the most of your time.

Room requirements

In an ideal world the room would be at least 12 ft long and 10 ft wide in order to accommodate the backdrop roll and the lighting stands, as per the set-up below. Ideally the room would have a high-ceiling in order to get the lights above the subject.

Smaller spaces can work, especially where it’s strictly head & shoulder shots. The better the room though the better the portraits.It’s critical that subjects aren’t overlooked by colleagues, in order that they are at ease and feel comfortable.

Post Production

We always supply a wide selection of images for you / the subject to choose from. We generally shoot both landscape and portrait shape so as to match any media. We don’t airbrush skin, etc unless specifically requested, and at a fee, but we do use the highest quality equipment, that brings out the very best in subjects.

Guidelines for subjects

There’s no golden rule as to what to wear and what not to wear. However, there are some things you may wish to think about as part of your company’s identity and how this shoot fits with past / future photography and a consistent presentation:

  • Do you want everyone consistent – i.e. in jackets, with ties, etc?
  • Do you want a casual or business attire look? Or both to match different audiences / tenders, etc.
  • Simple is always best – neutral clothing with a dash of colour is always good. If you’ve requested a plain white background then please try to avoid plain white shirts, etc.
  • Subjects are welcome to bring a change of outfit where time allows.

We hope this helps. The guide is simply to help give you and your team the very best experience, and images that they’re proud to represent them…without disruption to the working day.

PR photography Manchester – coronavirus testing kits

Business has been bad for most but not all of us this year…

PR photography Manchester – coronavirus testing kits

Medusa 19 is a small, dynamic healthcare business that was born from a need to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, providing an innovative solution that can help everyone get back to normal. With extensive experience in worldwide logistics, delivery, e-commerce, supply chains and fulfilment co-founders Richard Hughes and Mahmud Kamani, founders of boohoo, sought to deliver a solution to restore trust, reduce impact on businesses and put people back in control of their day-to-day lives.

Testing for business

We visited Medusa 19 at their Glasshouse office in Alderley Park to get some PR photographs as they launched the business and their first generation testing kit. We returned in March to see their latest covid testing products, including a rapid saliva protein testing kit.

The Rapid Saliva Protein Test (RSPT) is a non-invasive test indicating the immune response to infection from SARS-CoV-2, the virus underlying COVID-19, using a simple saliva sample. Less intrusive than a swab or blood test, the RSPT provides results on the spot within 15 minutes, and can be taken on the premises, with a healthcare professional present.

Developed in the UK and Spain, the test is CE marked to 98/79/EC, registered with the MHRA, and is for use under supervision from a medical professional throughout Europe. It’s proving pivotal in helping companies regulalrly test employees, safely reopen workplaces and take action in line with government guidance.

Medusa Covid 19 corona virus test

Medusa 19 is behind the Rapid Saliva Protein Test (RSPT), which provides on the spot results within ten minutes by measuring the presence of Covid19.

They have said the test is scalable with manufacturing capability of up to 100 million tests per month, and are currently working to develop an app which will act as a digital passport to verify and validate RSPT results, known as the Saturn Pass.  Christian Stephenson, chief development officer at Medusa 19 has said that the testing for infection is pivotal to navigating the pandemic.

The company, which was set up earlier this year, said the Rapid Saliva Protein Test is a significant breakthrough for the testing market.

It is less intrusive than a blood sample, nasal or throat swab, it was developed in the UK and Spain – the test indicates an immune response to current or recent infection, so alerts users if they should immediately self-isolate to stop the spread of the disease.  Independent clinical trials have produced 94% accuracy, and the firm said it was capable of making up to 100m tests per month.

The Medusa 19 team has worked with extraordinary dedication to produce this unique test in a matter of months, alongside the necessary infrastructure and fulfilment capability and they are delighted with the clinical results.

The test could be a lifeline for businesses struggling to safely reopen, and we are working tirelessly to seek approval for use for the general public too, said Andy White MD at Medusa 19.

National Press Photography Manchester Betfred Winner

400 mile round trip down to Kent to cover a press story for Betfred, client very pleased as story was picked up by lots of national newspapers.

Peter Smith, 70, was rushed into theatre after suffering a heart attack – but while he was under the knife, wife Winnie heard a small wager she’d put on numbers game 49s had paid out.

Winnie, 70, said she visited her local Betfred in Sidcup, Kent and put some change on game 49s. As part of the game, six numbers, plus a bonus number known as the booster, are drawn from balls marked 1 to 49.

All five of her numbers – two, eight, 13, 24 and 32 – came up.

Betfred press photography winner Kent Manchester Photographer

Winnie said she put the bet on as usual for the Saturday draw on the Friday.

Then, in the early hours of Saturday, Peter had his heart attack – they knew what was wrong, and more or less went straight in for the operation to fit stents at King’s College Hospital at Denmark Hill.
