The documentary captures the nuanced interplay of light and shadow, craftsmanship, and creativity that defines Ilford Photo’s legacy.

Captured over three days in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, we used the district’s vibrant street art and historic red-brick architecture as the project’s backdrop.

We meticulously framed each scene, harnessing the locations unique vibe to bring the project to life.

As the sun dropped on the final day, we wrapped up the shoot with a sense of accomplishment, knowing that we had captured a compelling narrative to tell Craig and Ilford’s story.

Together, we told the legacy of Ilford Photo, with Craig Fleming’s photographic artistry at the forefront. ‘Ilford Inspires’ stands as a testament to our collective dedication to capturing the extraordinary through a lens of innovation and creativity.
