Love of the lens in­spires Liv, 19, to launch pho­tog­ra­phy busi­ness

Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE -

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.”
