Michael Hope Photography

After picking up his first camera at the tender age of nine years old whilst taking family holiday pictures, it was clear to see that Michael had a talent for photography. The rest, as they say is history.

Michael's skills rank him as one of the country's leading photographers and is highly sort after. A nationally acclaimed photographer whose career has spanned over 28 years, and included photographing over 1100 weddings and over 5000 portrait assignments.

He has had the pleasure of photographing many famous people in his time as a professional, for example HRH Prince Andrew, Prime minister Tony Blair, Sven Goran Eriksson (then England manager), Kevin Keegan (also when England manager), Tony Banks (then MP for sport), Bob Murray (then Sunderland Chairman), Peter Reid, Alan Shearer, and various other professional footballers to name a few. He was also Sunderland Football club official photographer for 8 years covering team and player photography, and all boardroom photography.
