Welcome to Michael Hope Photography, and thank you for visiting my website. I hope you like it? Please have a look around my website, and get a feel for what I do, and why people say I am different from other photographers out there.
If you are looking for photography that is different from anything else you have seen before, and you want to stand out in the crowd, then you are in the right place. I am a highly experienced, creative photographer who has been lucky enough to photograph all over the world, in the last 30 plus years, and at the highest level of photography. Not only do I like to surpass the expectations of my clients, but I also like to push myself harder creatively, to produce images with the “Wow” factor. These images have gone a long way in helping me win well over 150 international, National, and Regional awards and accolades. These consist of Master Photographers awards, Fuji Film awards, Olympus awards, as well as consumer awards, covering varies types of photography, as well as album design.
I have a team of up to three photographers (myself, one other male and one female as a second shooter), one videographer, and we have drone capabilities too, for weddings, portraits, and commercial shoots anywhere in the world. If you’d like to take the first step in having some incredible images, then please just get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.
I specialise in contemporary wedding photography with an artistic twist, International destination wedding photography, engagement photography, and studio and location portraiture. I also cover commercial photography, christenings, pet photography, and events photography.
My goal is always to surpass my clients expectations, with unique, creative, and vibrant images. I have a vast list of happy clients, who not only love my photography but the one-off, handmade albums and products I also offer. My extensive portfolio also includes commercial work for large European organisations such as Sonae Industria (Germany, Portugal and Spain), Woodforce (France), Innovus (Portugal), and Surreal PT (Portugal), as well as Sage, Go Outdoors, and Greggs Bakeries here in the UK.
I was the only photographer in the UK to have two images in the National finals of the Olympus Wedding Awards, and I also won the most number of awards from any photographer in the Tyne & Wear region, in the National Master Photographers Awards.
I have continued my success in the awards this year, by winning nine Master Photographer National Merit Awards for my wedding photography images. Out of the thousands of images initially submitted, the entries were whittled down to only fifty five images in the finals for the wedding category, from photographers worldwide. Nine of the fifty five images where taken by myself !!! The highest number from any photographer, worldwide !! My newest accolade was being named in the top 100 wedding photographers worldwide, for the Wedding Photographers Society, this year.
I have also been given the prestigious title of exclusive UK Ambassador, for Photoshop Digital albums, based in Europe.
If there is something you require that is not covered on my website, or you would like to discuss a potential idea, please do not hesitate to get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.
