Andrew Miles –  Corporate Relations Manager at the University of Birmingham

Simon takes excellent photographs and communicates well with all his subjects. What I particularly like about working with Simon is he can move fast. We tend not to have much time for the short photo breaks we call him in for and he adapts fast to that. He’s also good at getting candid shots and appreciates that we want him to be bold in getting the right shots for us and not hold back in moving around the room. I had used other photographers in the past that I just did not feel were getting the brief. Since finding Simon probably around five years’ ago or more now(!), I have not gone to anyone else!

Jayne Foster – MD Event Works Europe

‘Simon has delivered excellent photographs for us over the last three years for high profile client conferences. Always prompt, paying great attention to detail and compilation of images to give great results. Simon has also delivered some fantastic photos of our team for use in trade press, social media and marketing materials. We would not hesitate to recommend Simon and will continue to work with him in the future’

‘Simon delivered plenty of standout content and really understood the brief. His professional, calm, creative approach helped to ensure everything ran smoothly over a busy two-day event and we are looking forward to working with him again soon’

Judith Greenburgh – Corporate Development Manager at Birmingham Hippodrome  

‘Having worked with Simon over a ten year period at Birmingham Hippodrome on every kind of photo shoot imaginable; close-ups, on stage stars, backstage, corporate, creative learning projects, large-scale events with a variety of purposes and platforms in mind, I can confidently say that you are in a very safe pair if hands (and lens!). Not only is Simon easy to work with but he always delivers with results hitting deadlines. I’d say he relishes the challenge and we’ve certainly given him some of those…..highly recommended’

Lauren Taylor – PR Manager at Weightmans LLP

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!’

I highly recommend Simon for any photography need.

Gemma Rock – Finance and Projects Coordinator at UK Power Reserve Ltd

‘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’

Andy Duck –  Marketing and Communications Manager (UK) at Bruynzeel Storage Systems

His rates are competitive, but most importantly he brings an editorial eye to image making, raising our product and site shots above the prosaic’
