Hi I'm Sasha Ray. I am a photomontage artist in Manchester. My work is about colours, details and pushing boundaries. It is about a sense of place, a sense of belonging and celebrating what we love.
Prior to becoming a full artist, I was a commercial & events photographer. Whilst I loved taking photos and meeting some amazing people along the way who commissioned me to shoot lots of different interesting things, changing my career path to art has enabled me to really explore my creativity and find myself at a much deeper level than before. I love photomontage as a medium. Instead of just one photo or a series of seperate photographs, I can incorporate multiple scenes, viewpoints, feelings and emotions into one single image. This one single image has impact, is timeless and as my art collectors tell me all the time "Every time I look at your art, I see something different". I tend to incorporate over 50 photos in each photomontage, sometimes a lot more. This takes a great deal of love, patience and vision to come to life and I love the challenge of making it happen.
Apart from art, my two greatest loves are the hustle and bustle of cities and the emotional connection of music. My urban collection is a very colorful art collection of Manchester that makes it feel sunny everyday. My music collection is about celebrating the great music icons that have touched so many lives and hearts. I am constantly creating new art.

I also do corporate bespoke commissions. This is an area I love because of my commercial background. I spent over 15 years in the advertising industry before I was a commercial photographer. With experiences in both, I fully understand the power of using art both as content marketing to stand out from your competitors, and as branding through presentation of beautiful wall art at your offices or venues such as hotels and restaurants to impress clients. I have experience in interiors, product, portrait and lifestyle photography and my bespoke commercial art package includes a complimentary photoshoot. Whether you are looking for one single powerful image to communicate all elements of your brand to use on your website and social media or you are looking for one of a kind wall art that will wow your clients, please get in touch for a free consultation.
My studio is in Stockport. If you would like to see my full art collection and wall art product range, please contact me to make an appointment. email@example.com 07572355188. I also still take on commercial photography work such as interiors, conferences, corporate portraits, lifestyle, and food and drink photoshoots so if you are looking for a commercial photographer, please do get in touch too.
