Sandra Buckland, Development Officer – Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School

“I found Claire’s work via the internet. Ultimately, the quality and consistency of her photography are impressive. We, therefore, commissioned Claire for our school’s new website. She came in and spent a whole day with us. It’s thanks to her that our new site looked bright, positive and welcoming.

“Claire was amazing. She chats away and makes every student feel relaxed and special which in turn encouraged natural smiles.”

“Many shots can allow for either a portrait or a landscape crop. Moreover, her attention to detail regarding backgrounds and the pupils themselves (whether it was hair, a tie and collar, positioning of a hand etc) is exceptional. In short, every detail draws the necessary consideration to achieve the best shot.”

“She focuses on the student and uses soft focus in the background and at other necessary times. That allows for a plain background which would let us use an image as a cut-out or a brightly coloured background which made the images look bright and positive.

“Claire’s work is exceptional, she is very professional and efficient and I cannot recommend Claire or her work highly enough and I am hoping she will return to work with us again soon”.
