Photography by Beverley Nesbit
Here, we showcase the work of Manchester-based photographer Beverley Nesbit. With a focus on more traditional photography, Beverley strives to capture human character, personality and emotion in her shots. Having graduated from university, she is now looking for more opportunities to continue her love of photography.
“I am an aspiring photographer, trying to make a name for myself in the music and film industries. My photography is not about the technicalities or the most expensive camera. For me its about the people in my photographs. Who are they? What is their story? With a love of old music and photography, I’m quiet traditional. I mostly use 35mm film, and with my old camera, I like to think of my images as real and honest. I graduated with a filmmaking degree from Manchester, which I feel has helped to shape my photography, in that I like to tell a story within my photographs.
One of my biggest inspirations is Linda McCartney. Her photographs are beautiful, and the way she caught those relaxed moments, where usually these people would be composed, just shows how comfortable she made people. Other photographers that inspire me include Gered Mankowitz, Robert Doisneau, Astrid Kircher and David Bailey.
For me, photography is addictive. I have just come from photographing internet musician, Alex Day, and I am already itching to photograph someone new. I love my camera, and I can’t go anywhere without it. I’m not sure where the future will take me. I am a big fan of going where the wind takes me.”
