‘I have commissioned Simon to provide commercial images for Bruynzeel Storage Systems over the past two years. He is professional, efficient and will always deliver, working creatively and sensitively within the confines of a commercial brief. His rates are competitive, but most importantly he brings an editorial eye to image making, raising our product and site shots above the prosaic’
‘Simon is a fantastic photographer, has a real eye for detail and the final product is always exceptional. I have worked with Simon several times and recommend him regularly to clients and contacts. I always looked forward to seeing the images and they were my favourite to use to accompany any press releases or news stories. A pleasure to work with, he is great with clients and I have a solid trust in him to always get the job done. Thank you Simon!’

‘We hired Simon to take photographs for our company website and were very impressed with his services. Simon was reasonably priced and extremely professional. He edited and produced the photographs in an efficient and timely manner and we were pleased with them, so pleased in fact that we asked him back again a month later to take some more. Second time round his services remained at a high standard so we have asked him to quote for other parts of our business. I would recommend Simon to both friends and other businesses’
‘I have worked with Simon on many occasions. The assignments have varied from being very business focused to fun and creative. I find Simon to be very personable and easy to work with. He is relaxed and calm in the craziest of situations and works well with a range of people through the assigments. I would thoroughly recommend Simon to colleagues and others seeking a good photographer’
