Coronation Street Vs Emmerdale At Northern Photography Locations

They’re up against each other at the biggest awards event in the soap calendar on 24 September and so to showcase the nominees, Inside Soap magazine shot both Coronation Street and Emmerdale cast in two of UK Locations most urban (and run down), northern photography locations.

The brief was simple – gritty, urban and northern. The location had to be the total contrast to the beauty and glamour of the cast being shot, their couture outfits and uber stylish hair. As the images show – it worked fabulously.

The Emmerdale photo shoot  took place in a photography location in Leeds and the Coronation Street shoot was in a Manchester photography location.
