Alison McMath Photographer

"I love creating beautiful images"


Based in Lancashire, I am a semi-professional lifestyle and fashion photographer for editorial, commercial and private clients in all areas of the north west and further afield. With a diploma in fashion and also over twenty years as a makeup artist, I started out at a hobbyist photographer just over three years ago. I simply wanted to take beautiful photos of my client's makeup and hair styling. However, this soon developed into a love affair with the camera. I started creating and designing my own shoots with models and this year for the first time, a selection of my images was published in Femme Rebelle Magazine. This was a big turning point for me, giving me the confidence to continue with my creative work.


All the images on this website are styled and photographed by me unless otherwise stated.


My influences include old Hollywood movie stars, quirky beauty, fairy tales, fine art, story-telling, colour and nature. 

Aims and achievements

I have worked for several clients during my first year as a professional photographer. I recently completed a fashion photography workshop with Lara Jade Photography who's work is a great inspiration to me. I have also completed several photography training days with Aspire Photography Training which is set in the beautiful Cumbria countryside. I am a resident photographer at Onyx Studio too, so I am able to offer a variety of settings and backdrops. My aim is to focus on my client's needs and offer the very best service to produce perfect images that showcase their vision.
