    We’ve used Claire for both fundraising campaigns and at events and have always been impressed with the quality of her work. Claire is:

    • easy to work with;

    • friendly, and;

    • professional.

    “We trust that she will not only complete a brief but also go above and beyond!”

    Trudy Boulert, Digital Communications Officer – Debra

    “As the owner of a creative design agency, I know how important it is to work with photographers who know what they are doing but also add that extra something. Claire is someone who adds that extra something. Having worked with her on and off over the past 15 years, I have no hesitation in recommending her.”

    “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.”

    Pauline Minsky, Design Manager, Manchester Art Gallery

    “Glorious Creative have been commissioning Claire since 2004. Projects range from EN magazine, where Claire helped establish the magazine’s photographic style as well as produce a whole range of interesting cover portraits, to work for the NWDA, Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, Lees Solicitors and the Manchester Urology Group. She always brings enthusiasm and commitment to every project and has that rare ability to relax her subjects to ensure she captures great images. Glorious would have no hesitation recommending Claire.”

    Mark Ross – Design Director of Glorious Creative

    “I’ve been working with Claire for a few years now and each and every time we get Claire in she does her best to get exactly what we are looking for. Always prompt, professional and a pleasure to work with. Shots are sent over so quickly after the shoot for proofing so gives us the flexibility to use the shots straight away.”
