Siddal ARLFC Halifax - Player Sponsored By Danny Thompson Photography


I'm always looking for new ways to promote Danny Thompson Photography in and around my local area of Halifax, West Yorkshire, so recently I became the proud sponsor of Sean McCormack, a 1st team player for Siddal ARLFC. I try my best to support local causes, ventures and businesses whenever I can and it's great to be involved with such a successful club! It is one of the leading amateur Rugby League Clubs in the country. Siddal ARLFC’s 1st team compete in the Hatton's Solicitors National Conference League at a national level but the club starts training its future players from the early age of 4! In total they have 16 different teams contributing to the club.

Unmasked Mental Health - Danny Thompson Commercial Photography


Over the last few weeks I have been working with 3 guys who have taken it upon themselves to try make a dent in the World’s Mental Health Crisis. UNMASKED. A Peer to Peer mental health support APP.
They are 3 typical local lads, Doug, Logan & Robin who I met at a Halifax Business Networking Event at Halifax Business Centre. We had a laugh, cracked a few bad jokes and then arranged a meeting to discuss working together on a Commercial Photography Shoot. We met, over a cold one, to talk about what was important for me to capture in their photos. It was then that I learnt each had their own story, their own personal reasons for trying to make a difference. Quite quickly it was obvious that the photos needed to show their struggles, as a way to connect to their audience but to show the positivity they have for life and the new project UNMASKED.
