About Alan Duggan

 

Alan DugganMy name is Alan Duggan and I am a photographer based in Fleetwood, a small Lancashire town in the North West of England.

My photography journey began when I decided to visit an old Asylum that was being demolished. I wanted to document the Asylum before it was gone forever and I thought what better way to do this than in pictures.

Since visiting the abandoned asylum I have been lucky enough to visit many other abandoned locations not just in the UK but also in France, Belgium & Luxembourg. Here are a few links to some of the locations I have visited, they are grouped by country. UK Reports, France Reports, Belgium Reports & Luxembourg Reports.

Although photographing abandoned locations is where my photography began I have taken a real interest in portrait photography and you can see some examples of my work by clicking here.

Club Photography
I have been a member of my local Photographic Society (Poulton-Le-Fylde PS) since 2014. I joined the club in the intermediate bracket and in my first year I managed to win the trophy for the 2014/15 intermediate colour class.

The following club year 2015/16 I was moved into the advanced section of the club which has proved to be a much harder challenge, however, in the 2016/17 year I managed to win the advanced colour class.

National Salons
In the latter part of 2015 I started to enter the National BPE exhibitions. Below is my progress so far.

April 2016 – I was awarded my BPE1* Crown award.
May 2017 – I was awarded my BPE2* Crown award.

I am currently working towards gaining my BPE3* Crown award. I have also been awarded 2 Highly Commended Awards, 2 Certificate of Merits and a Selectors Award for my work in the BPE Salons.

Client Reviews

 

Brian McGowan 5 Star Review
I had the pleasure of modelling for Alan at Millwood Studios. Alan has a very pleasant personality and is very considerate towards his models, he has good communication skills during the shoot and he is very easy to get along with.

Shooting with Alan was a very pleasant experience and I would recommend him to any other models.

Michaela 5 Star Review
I had my first shoot with Alan yesterday evening and it was great. Everything was set up for when I got there so we could begin shooting straight away making the most of the time we had. He had some great ideas and gave really good direction on poses. He also reviewed the images as we went along which was really helpful to ensure we both got what we wanted from the shoot.

I’d definitely recommend Alan & hope to work with him again in the future

Pip Pipkins 5 Star Review
I worked with Alan and Alex at the Zan Studio on Sunday and I must say they both were a joy to work with. Full of great creative ideas and looking at the images so far they have executed them well. Both gave good direction, while also taking on board my ideas. It was a pleasure to meet and work with you both many thanks Pip.

Natasha Brammah 5 Star Review
I worked with Alan on a classy, elegant shoot a couple of days ago and I have to say it was one of my favourite shoots so far, especially with the quality of the images. Alan was very friendly, chatty and helpful, and quite obviously passionate about his work!

I would recommend Alan to anyone and hope to work with him again soon. Thanks for your hard work!

Beth Jade 5 Star Review
Alan was delightful throughout the shoot, he threw in ideas on poses when I wasn’t too sure and was a genuine pleasure to work with. I Hope to work with you again Alan!

Sandra Gilchrist 5 Star Review
Fantastic pictures. I had a great time making fun memories with my friends which I can keep forever. Alan had some great ideas for pictures and he was fantastic with the kids. Can’t wait for him to do my baby pictures when my daughter arrives, thank you.

Nicci Cawthorne 5 Star Review
I have had the pleasure of working with Alan twice now and both shoots have been highly enjoyable with excellent high quality work achieved both times. Alan is a very professional photographer, a great guy and really good fun to work with. Highly recommended… hope to work with you again Alan.

Stacie Daniel 5 Star Review

Adam Wilson 5 Star Review
A wonderful experience to be shot by such a great photographer! Alan has such a calming and serene approach to photography, making the shoot feel relaxed and enjoyable, and the pictures look amazing as always – Adam

Hazel Rose 5 Star Review
I met Alan at a Studio event and he was an absolute delight to work with!

He was so lovely, polite and professional to work with. I felt straight at ease working with him. Alan was brilliant at directing me and overall a pleasure to shoot with. Thank you for a wonderful shoot and I hope to work with you again in the future!

Michelle Waldermar 5 Star Review
Alan has done professional photos for both my daughters prom and her portfolio. On both shoots Alan ensured he captured the requests from my teenage daughter and a very fussy mother. He has patience and provides lots of time to capture the perfect photos. The photos which were produced were of an exceptional high standard, Alan has so much passion for the job he does it certainly shows through his professionalism and pieces of work. I can’t recommend Alan any higher, would invite anyone to speak to us.

Sam Dootson 5 Star Review
Did a couple of Photos with Alan! Has such a great talent for capturing moments which is exactly what you want! Provided a first class service and was friendly and approachable! Definitely recommend Alan! Will be back for more photos in the future! Thanks! – Sam
