Sarah Helsby Hughes is based in the Liverpool area and often works at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. This is one of a number of commissioned shots taken for publicity use.
In April 2004 Sarah Helsby-Hughes released the CD 'Dreamtime' with a selection of favourite songs and arias. She is also a teacher of singing at all levels, and provides lessons in Liverpool. For more info please contact.
This was an interesting shoot. We chose the Rochdale Canal off Whitworth St Manchester as the backdrop. Sara is a very confident and photogenic subject.
