Lord Mayor of Liverpool Cllr Tony Concepcion

CKCHFr5WUAA77vOsmThis week as part of my ongoing project to photograph each new Lord Mayor of Liverpool. Lord Mayor Cllr Tony Concepcion, very graciously posed for my lens at the Liverpool Town Hall this week. Cllr Conception has only just taken up the role of Lord Mayor. A retired Vauxhall Motors worker and senior shop steward, Cllr Concepcion grew up in the city centre and now lives in Knotty Ash, close to the new Alder Hey Hospital. He was first elected to the city council 25 years ago. As a  Liverpool photographer I continually play a role in Photographing its most distinguished politicians and citizens.

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson

Working with Politicians has always been an exciting prospect for me, and this Month Mayor Joe Anderson Sat for an Official Portrait at my Liverpool Studio. Joe being the first Executive Mayor of Liverpool I wanted to present him as a leader, bold, approachable and determined.

 

Being a History Graduate, it has always fascinated me, how historical artists such as Holbein portrayed Leaders, and I took some inspiration from the Renaissance, let me know what you think of Portraits.

Lord Mayor of Liverpool Gary Millar

I was delighted for the new Lord Mayor Of Liverpool Gary Millar sat for a Portrait Session at the Liverpool Studio this week. I often find historical elements to Political Portraits, and Photograph them in an almost Holbein Style. I prefer Black Backdrops as they concentrate the viewers eye on the subject, and with a little lighting separation the images turned out really well.
