Scott Kershaw is a London-based photographer who has built a strong reputation for himself over the past decade. He has worked for a wide range of editorial publications such as The Observer and The Guardian, as well as major international record companies and fashion labels. He has shot everyone from Plan B to Deadmau5 to Pete Doherty.
Scott grew up in Manchester surrounded by and submerged in the city's renowned music culture. The youth subcultures and the redevelopment of the built environment were key influences on his work and strong aesthetic style.
He specialises in Portraiture, Documentary and Advertising (recent clients include Fosters, BBC, Samsung and leading PR agencies FRANK, Colman Getty and Fever), and Social Advertising (recent clients include Cancer Research and COI). He now splits his time between editorial and commercial work, and his own personal projects.
With a great deal of dignity, compassion and sensitivity Scott has captured thought-provoking, personable and compelling photographs of the homeless and vulnerable men and women we support. We are so thankful and are proud to feature these images (with consent) to communicate our life-saving work on the streets of Manchester.
