Bio - Bernard O’Sullivan - Founder Of Tideswell Photos

I was born and bred in Manchester and have been a professional photographer for over Thirty-Six years founding IOP in 1991. Since then I have worked for a disparate client base, undertaking a wide range of commercial, architectural and industrial photography jobs occasionally winning professional photography awards. I work out of Tideswell and Manchester covering jobs all over the UK and very occasionally Europe.

The Derbyshire Connection

Derbyshire County Council's and their regeneration-partners Nottinghamshire County Council, were clients for a 5-7 year period I provided them with publicity images travelling extensively throughout both counties. My father-law Larry Street was a Derbyshire Lad through and through. It was for that reason that I, along with my wife Clare and her father Larry, moved to Tideswell in Larry's beloved Derbyshire in 2014, unfortunately Larry left us in October 2015.

Since moving to Tideswell I have never looked back, I love the village and now firmly regard Tideswell as 'Home', with a growing percentage of my work coming directly from the immediate surrounding area. From the word-go we were made to feel very welcome by local residents, and in return I was keen to give something back to the village.

We are lucky to live in a village that somehow manages to be quiet and peaceful, whilst at the same time offering an enviable range of services and activities as well as a good range of shops, pubs, cafes etc, these are fragile things which need constant working at and supporting and ultimately helps to forge a stronger community.

I also love being a photographer: it has allowed me to do and see things, which in the normal scheme of life, I would never have had a chance to experience, in short its pretty cool!
