  • Joe is a brilliant photographer who put me at ease throughout the shoot. One thing I loved about it was him asking me questions to get my natural reactions, which captured my emotions perfectly. Would recommend!

  • I would recommend Joe to anyone wishing to have high quality photos. Joe is a true expert, he's so professional and creative. I was struggling to come up with creative poses, Joe's imaginative skills exceeded my expectations. He helped with posing ideas, unlike other photographers I have used in the past, they just follow your word without giving any posing tips, if in doubt. Also I find Joe to be patient, easy to work with and efficient. I didn't have to wait weeks to get my photos. I like my photos so much, no regret!!!!!!

  • Joe worked with us developing some corporate headshots for a marketing project. He was easy and fun to work with, professional and reliable, and responded positively to our brief with regards to the kind of compositions we were looking for. His creative adjustments and suggestions on the fly helped us to achieve the end product we were after.

  • I have worked with many photographers and I must say that photo shoot with Joe was a great adventure, unlike any other. Due to my late arrival to Southampton it turned into quite a late shoot, but we kept each other awake with interesting conversation about photography and life. We probably shot 600 photos for fashion outfits, lingerie and nude. Joe knows how to play with light to create wonderful photos and I am very pleased with the effect we achieved. Thank you Joe!

  • My partner and I went for a pre-wedding shoot here, and Joe was extremely professional & friendly. He made sure he communicated in a timely and efficient manner, answering all our questions and worries we had beforehand. On the day the environment was okay and we were allowed to play our own music throughout the shoot (which helped us get into a relaxed and happy mood). He was also very patient with our outfit changes (which took some time). Throughout the session, he helped us with posing for each photograph (as we were not sure how to position ourselves most of the time). Finally our pictures came out great and in the best time possible. I will definitely recommend this service.

  • I love the photos Joe took of my work, it can be difficult to get photos of ceramics that really do them justice but he really captured the energy that I try to put in the pieces. His professionalism, lovely personality and skill is definitely 5 star. Many thanks from Wyn Abbot Ceramics 🙂

  • Loving the new photos!! Some real faves in there. Consistent in achieving a very high-end style. Some of the naked shots are absolutely great. Really happy with them! And the one you captured of me naturally smiling after the 'incident' is almost definitely my personal fave! / Agree! Also, totally agree on the shot with Ioannis laughing - beautiful! Thanks Joe. Such lovely shots. xx

  • We went for a family photo shoot with Joe. Unfortunately we managed to pick a time when our 18 month old was in a bad mood so temper tantrums all round! Despite our Sons' bad temper and lots of tissues, miraculously, Joe still managed to get a photo of him smiling! Thanks for your patience, we managed to get some lovely pictures and we have one on the wall 🙂 Joe is easy to get on with and puts people at ease which is important to get natural poses, great job!
