Here are a few kind words of recommendation;
"Paula has worked for my clients to produce great photos that work for websites, brochures and other branding. She has an eye for a good shot and helps her subjects to relax so we end up with some really good 'people' images that were also set well. On more than one occasion she has also 'dropped everything' in order to do an urgent shoot at short notice, and at unsociable hours; she's flexible, fun and good at what she does. We'll be using her again, I'm sure." Jane Manifest Marketing.

"I love Paula's work. She has such a feel for any project you throw at her. Lot's of creative input, really thoughtful and observant, good with models and clients. Her understanding of the needs of the 'social/not-for-profit' sectors is a perfect match for my main work profile. Paula never fails to lift the ordinary to make it pretty extraordinary. Very special photographer." Richard Dg3 Design.

"Thanks I have received the photos – they are brilliant thank you! The designer and I reviewed them yesterday and there are so many good ones it is difficult to choose!" Helen Sheffield NHS.

"We have hired Paula on various occasions to cover photoshoots for regional projects for Big Lottery Fund. She produces fabulous photos, many of which have been used in our national publications. She is sensitive to the needs of Big Lottery Fund and the projects that we work with and understands instructions completely" Alison, Big Lottery

"Your pix are absolutely excellent and have made a great impact in the mag – you and your sister make a great team!" Susan, Young Minds Magazine.
