Welcome to Peter Barnett Photography. We create unique images of people, places and still life by pushing the boundaries of imagination and technology.

We are Peter and Deborah.  We work from our Manchester studio, which is a stone's throw from some stunning urban and rural locations which form the perfect backdrop to a shoot.  Alternatively, we can come to your home or office.  

Our commissions vary from commercial and family portraiture to portfolio shoots to showcase the talents of models, make-up artists, performers and more.  Contact us with your requirements - we are happy to discuss the various options to achieve your aims.

"I had the pleasure to work with Peter a couple of weeks ago on my way to Manchester. His communication leading up to the shoot was excellent and we were able to build our ideas around two main looks which turned out wonderfully. Peter made me feel very comfortable - he gave some brilliant directions and gave me the opportunity to be free with my posing and movements. He has a keen eye and captured some beautiful moments. We worked at a good pace and he ensured I got my train back safely to where I was staying. Very good turn around time with the images as he has kept me updated along the way. I highly recommend working with Peter!" Marianne Cheesecake.

"Shot with Peter for the first time on Sunday, and what a shoot it was. I was made to feel so welcome by both him and his wife Deborah, was even treated to the most gorgeous homemade chicken soup for lunch! Peter definitely knows his craft, from lighting to framing and we shot some gel lighting which I hadn’t done before and loved the results. He communicates well, and I’m in love with the images! 100% recommend! It was a longer shoot than expected but only because we got on so well and had such a relaxed shoot. Book him in!

"Amazing shoot with Peter and his wife today! They both made me feel so welcome and comfortable at the studio. Both myself and Peter were able to work well to come up with ideas. The images produced were oustanding and I cant wait to work with them both again in the future." Charlotte Haughton 

"Had an awesome Sunday shooting with Peter and his lovely wife, one of the most relaxed shoots I've had, was given so much time for make up and to get ready which was a real luxury. Peter is a true gentleman pre shoot communication were spot on planned down to the fine details so even with some last minute changes to the shoot it all ran smoothly resulting it some awesome images. Tea and biscuits on arrival which is alway a hit with me. Highly recommend.Thanks again till the next time". Lilly Von Pink
