This is what Sandra has to say about working with me….

I wanted to wait for the perfect time for my photos but quickly realised that if I didn’t bite the bullet, I’d be waiting forever and that perfect time would never come.

I loved the photos that you’d produced elsewhere for other women in business and I’ve seen your work and I’ve got to know, like, and trust you over the years and realised that you wouldn’t want to take or send me bad photos.

I’m absolutely bowled over with the photos, I’m so pleased with them. I’ve been using them daily on my website and social channels. I now have a whole bank of photos I can use that really reflect my business and my personal brand.

It was really important to me to have photos I could use to promote my business.

I loved the way we spent time planning the photoshoot so that I received photos that were relevant, usable, and reflected my brand.

We had fun on the day and I felt relaxed. You made sure that the photos were of good quality in terms of lighting, position and ensured you got it right. I also loved the flexibility where you saw an opportunity to take a photo that I hadn’t thought of.

You listened to me throughout to ensure that you knew exactly what I wanted to achieve.

If you’re not quite sure yet whether to book me, Sandra says:

Take a look at John’s work and then book him.

He will never make you look bad and will work with you to ensure you get the photos you need and love. It’s a great experience and definitely worth the planning time.
