You bring out the best in your subjects, and you do so with kindness, speed and fine listening skills. I've been telling everyone I know, to do themselves a favour and get their photos from you. I never realized how great I could look, until my session with you." - L.A. McNulty, Author & Multimedia Communications Strategist

"You have such a special way of taking the exact photos your clients need. It is a rare gift in a photographer to think outside the box, or outside the studio when shooting portraits. You instinctively know who people truly are, then you manage to capture that on camera. A good portrait is not just the technicalities of colour, and lighting. It conveys your personality, your feelings, your message. People definitely get that and more when they work with you." - Robert Flowers, Celebrant/Officiant

You're a gifted artist and highly professional to boot." - Catherine Bremer, Chief Correspondent Reuters France
