Love of the lens inspires Liv, 19, to launch photography business
A PHOTOGRAPHER who practised her art snapping the town’s bands, musicians and live events has launched her own business.
Liv Morris, 19, first started working with the local music scene when she was 16 by doing some designs for The Virginmarys.
She later captured the Loominus Festival in 2013, as well as bands Clarissa and the Three Maccs, Darragh Burke, Ben Gorb and Charles Ormrod.
Liv, a former student at King’s and Fallibroome Academy, is now a digital marketing apprentice with McCann, based in Prestbury, and also studies at Macclesfield College and works evenings in the town centre bar SK11.
The 19-year-old has also launched her business Olivia Morris Photography, which involves all types of photogaphy including landscape and commercial work.
Liv, who lives near Swettenham Village, south of Macclesfield, said: “What I love most about photography is the chance to meet new people, especially through music events.
“The music community around Macclesfield is a very friendly and inviting one, and every time I go to a different event I meet all kinds of people of all ages because they are drawn together by similar interests and hobbies.
“There are many people who I have met through photography and music who have changed my life, and I wouldn’t be the same without any of them.
“My aims are to increase my skills in different aspects of photography by working with different people and on different types of projects.
“All I look for in my future is to be happy with the work that I do, whether it be with a company, or for my own photography business, and to keep meeting new people who can inspire me to keep creating.”
