“I found Claire’s work via the internet and was really impressed by the quality and consistency of her photography. We therefore commissioned Claire for our school’s new website and she came in and spent a whole day with us and it is thanks to her that our new site looked bright, positive and welcoming. Claire was amazing … she chatted away and made every student feel relaxed and special which in turn encouraged natural smiles. Many shots were set up to allow for a portrait or a landscape crop, her attention to detail re backgrounds and the pupils themselves (whether it was hair, a tie and collar, positioning of a hand etc) was exceptional – every detail was considered to get the best shot. She focused in on the student and used soft focus in the background and at times, allowed 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”.
