I have enjoyed working with Chaz immensely when I hired him to undertake some artful photography for a motoring magazine article that I wrote. I was looking for something cool and contemporary yet businesslike and Chaz met this criteria exactly. His ideas were great and have translated extremely well and I am delighted with the finished results. And it only took a few shots to get exactly what I needed! He is personable and professional and also met my very tight deadline on time, going the extra mile to ensure that he could do this. I am happy to recommend Chaz and we will definitely be using his professional services for all photography needs here at Ridgeway Jaguar.

I am a garden lighting designer and installer. I used Chaz to professionally photograph my clients new garden lighting system at night. Quite a challenging thing to accomplish because it was dark. I was delighted with the results, Chaz took a great deal of time and attention with each of the photos. I am very happy to recommend him as the results were first class.

We engaged Chaz to take some shots in readiness for our rebrand and after seeing his work we were over the moon with the way it has lifted our image. On top of that he was not a ‘lovey’ which was our previous experience with photographers.

He was no nonsense and ‘let’s get down to it’ – Very impressive! We will be retaining Chaz for all our imagery from now on.

Right from the start Chaz was easy to communicate with and I knew we would get on. He is flexible and creative and was a total pleasure to work with. On the day, we wanted some outdoor shots and Chaz tried but the weather wasn’t really on our side. Chaz suggested we could get the same informal feel we were looking for inside and he was right. He did more than the brief and was very happy to direct and create. It was a total pleasure to spend time with him. We look forward to working with Chaz again in the future.

Chaz listened and understood our brief and carried it forward quickly, simply and with a twist of humour and fun, which is how we work best. We’re looking forward to hiring his expertise and no messing, plain English charm again very soon.

We were looking for a photographer to shoot images of our guest rooms, restaurant and food dishes for use on our website and social media. From our initial enquiry, through to receiving edited photographs Chaz was extremely professional and the images we now use are of the highest quality. Overall we have been very pleased with the results and will be sure to use Chaz’s services again in the future.

Chaz came along to our Rainbow Run event as a volunteer photographer, using his professional photography skills and experience to help us cover this spectacular event.  We had only one photographer of our own and as you can imagine with 4 paint points and family photos to take for the media and for the families themselves it is absolutely impossible to cover the various aspects of the event.

Chaz was brilliant. He arrived full of enthusiasm and on his bike so he could get from one paint point to the other quickly.  I didn’t have to tell him what photos to take as his experience meant he knew what to do, could be as creative as he liked and simply capture the fun and wonderful colours of this family run. We truly couldn’t have managed without him.
