Profile

Welcome to Peter Liggins Photography

I am a freelance photographer based in Mossley, Ashton-Under-Lyne, Lancashire. My interest in photography began many years ago as a hobby, where primarily I would photograph birds. Not surprisingly, it wasn't long before I realised that looking through the viewfinder of a camera presented me with a whole new and interesting world to look at.

After having my working life in construction cut short due to an industrial related accident, I have spent the last four years striving to reach a level of competency which allows me to deliver quality images for all to enjoy. Photography is both challenging and frustrating, but there is always that one shot at the end of the day that makes it all worthwhile!

About My Work

From a commercial perspective, unlike many photographers I do not specialise in any particular field as doing so, I believe, restricts and limits your work flow and client potential. As the cliche says, "It's like putting all your eggs in one basket."

Leisurely, I have a passion for landscapes, as well as abstracts and the quirky, curious objects that can be found around every street corner. The world is an interesting place - and I like to capture it!
