Review from Sam Ahmed
TV Presenter, PT instructor and Sports Therapist
Steve is a very professional photographer who goes above and beyond to make sure your happy. Steve immediately put me at ease with his calming voice and laid back demeanor. He's amazing at small talk and telling funny stories. I'm not sure I'd have relaxed as much without it. Photography is not cheap but Steve's prices are a perfect reflection of his unique talent and effort. In fact, I feel I should have paid more. All the equipment was impressive and showed how he really knew his stuff.
What struck me the most is how Steve was so happy to go above and beyond to get me the best result possible. The pictures were so much better than I could ever have hoped for. But on top of this, he sent me them in black and white too and reduced each image size for easy uploading..... I didn't even ask for this but it has come in so useful for my career.
There's no way I would ever go to anybody else to have my professional pictures taken. Thanks so much Steve, see you soon.
Review from AA Millinery
I was recommended Steve to do the photography for my millinery collection and have really enjoyed working with him throughout the whole process. Steve was very responsive, getting back to me promptly after my initial enquiry and to queries since and was very helpful and enthusiastic when we were organising the shoot as well as during it. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and he was punctual and professional at all times; setting up without fuss within the space provided and easily adjusting lighting etc when necessary and giving clear direction to the models to get exactly the looks we were after. Most importantly to me, Steve was very receptive of my desired outcome, making sure that each photo made the most of the hat being portrayed- not always the case as I have known other photographers to sacrifice the image of the product in favour of an artistic all over shot which although good for their needs, it is not ideal for mine! As a result the final images are just as I wanted them, beautiful clear images of the hats and models looking their best. The post shoot edit has been an equally positive experience with Steve being very patient with my requests for changing things that were a result of an oversight in the making rather than the photography!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Steve to anyone looking for a photographer (the added bonus that he can do it without a studio making it very easy to arrange) and I certainly hope to work with him again in the future.

As a newly Self Employed Makeup Artist, I required professional and high quality images for my Bridal and Special Occasion portfolio. I have worked with Steve on several photography projects as both a model and MUA and the standard of images Steve can create are astonishing. So, Hiring Steve for my business promotion was a no-brainer! I contacted Steve regarding a date booked for the shoot with only seven days notice, a vague brief of desirable content and a schedule just 48 hours prior to the day. I was very impressed with the way Steve conducted himself both on a professional and personal level working with limited resources provided, allocated space in a small studio and his working relationships with other photographers and the models. I had three photographers working on this shoot, and Steve was my first choice. I couldn't imagine better images, and I can use them for years to come to promote my work. I would happily work with Steve again and highly recommend him.
