Customer Testimonials

Rob has been taking photos for my family since I was a little girl (I’m 23 now), he’s always provides the best service going out of his way to work round a time that suits us. I’ve recently had a baby and we wanted pregnancy and newborn pictures done the photos where absolutely amazing, we also took our year and a half old dog and our 9 week old puppy to have pictures with our baby (I know why people say not to work with animals or children now) but rob was so patient and got some outstanding pictures for us, can’t recommend enough! Thanks Rob

I would certainly recommend Rob. We had some family portraits taken for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary, as their anniversary gift from the rest of the family. The entire service, from initial contact to production of prints, was very quick and professional. I have to confess that I do not like having my photo taken, and so was not looking forward to the sitting. However, Rob instantly put everyone at ease and I really enjoyed the experience in the end. He was particularly good with my nephews (4 and 7) who were not keen to sit still for very long. And most importantly, we are all delighted with the photos!

I needed a professional photo of myself for my website and social media channels. After looking at the excellent reviews Rob had already received, I decided to travel the hour to York, and am so glad I did! Rob put me at ease straight away, making the whole experience fun and with excellent results at the end of it. Thanks again Rob.

I've used Rob as our family photographer for about 10 years now. Whenever there is a moment to be captured, we visit Rob in his studio. We would highly recommend Rob. He is very professional and we've loved all the photographs he has done for us.

From Our Website

Make sure everyone involved is there on time, by telling them its 20 mins earlier than it is! This gives everyone time to greet each other and prepare. Take spare Personal Protective Equipment, that is brand new. Whilst we can retouch grubby Hi Vis vests and hard hats, it always looks better straight from the packet, and this will save the expense of retouching. Tell those involved to avoid busy bright ties, particularly for corporate portraiture, anything that distracts from the expressions and the face is a negative.
