Zoe - Portrait Shoot:

"Neil's calm, comforting persona helped me get the shot we were after. His creativity and professional manner comforted me in the knowledge they would be captured and edited to not only show off the environment but compliment me."

Pete - Portrait Shoot:

"Neil has worked with me in helping create some unique, yet personal images for my Dj Bio.
Neil was the consummate professional, making me feel at ease throughout. I look forward to the next shoot, this guy is seriously good!"

"Neil is one of the most honest, hardworking self-employed people that I know. Being self-employed myself I can appreciate the hard work that goes in to providing a great service and Neil really does go above and beyond (excuse the pun).

I've worked with Neil on a few projects for promotional works for my fitness business and Neil has come fully equipped with some of the newest equipment in the industry and is willing to help with your own vision."

Corinne - Media Creations:

"Neil’s extensive experience and professional approach makes him a complete pleasure to work with and the fact that his images have the wow factor make him the perfect choice.

I regularly recommend Neil, how could you not?"

"My wife and I hired Neil as our wedding photographer back in October and from the start he was friendly, professional, and very committed to his work, going above and beyond what either of us expected. Even months after he surprised us with a wonderful collage made from all our wedding photos! Could not recommend more!"

"I purchased a print from Neil's website and it's absolutely beautiful! The print quality is amazing and it looks even better now that I have it framed and up on the wall! The only problem with it was making the decision on which one to choose!! So many beautiful photos on there. Super friendly customer service and fast responses from Neil too. Thank you!"

"Absolutely love his work! I purchased one of the moon photos, framed it today! Looks amazing! Definitely recommend it and definitely will purchase more 😊"

"They say you cannot teach an old dog new tricks. Well, I'm an old dog of 70 years of age, and Neil James has certainly taught me some new tricks. Regressing to my childhood, I decided I'd like to own a drone and, of course, learn how to fly it properly.
If you are of a similar mind, then Neil is the very man for you. He is patient, calm and explained things fully. But better yet, he didn't keep interfering as some instructors might. He said that he would only interfere if things got desperate! Nothing did, so a yippee, a sound learning curve, taught by an excellent instructor.
I cannot sing Neil's praises highly enough. You really do need to be taught properly. Not only to prevent harm to anyone else and to stay within the CAA rules, but also to prevent doing damage, possibly terminal, to your drone. They are not cheap, at least a proper one isn't.
Neil is most definitely your man."

Matthew - Wedding Video

"I’ll start off with Neil is brilliant at what he does!

It’s so hard to put into words how we both felt from watching our wedding day back, our most memorable moments were all there, along with some we'd forgotten about and others we didn't even realise had happened! Neil was there to capture all of the detail - just amazing, thank you!

On the day Neil was polite, cheerful and reassuring which helped us relax into it all, especially on our breakaway shots which really made the video.

The drone just added to it all, showing our wonderful venue and the grounds.

Fantastic service before and after our day. We highly recommend you getting your day filmed by Neil.

Thank you again, Mr & Mrs Larcombe"
