    “As Design Manager at Manchester Art Gallery I am responsible for producing strong gallery branded communications. Claire was initially commissioned to provide our brand photography, communicating our values: welcoming, warm, fun and engaging.   She continued to work with us over a 6 year period. She has produced exceptional shots for us. A good director, she works well with models (our models are our visitors), is highly professional, delivers great work, on time. Claire works incredibly hard to get the best shots, the end result is beautiful photography. I would not hesitate to recommend her”.
