Robinsonrose - Director
Working with Joe has been a real pleasure. Joe is a perfectionist, and this really comes across in the way approaches things from the very start to delivering the images we really wanted.
Joe without hesitation will go the extra mile to ensure that you receive exactly what you’re looking for and I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone.
Joe undertook corporate work for us, shots for the website including aerial photography and profile images and I was delighted with the results and the process.
The Goodwin Studio of Acting
JOE IS A WONDERFULLY WARM AND SUPPORTIVE PHOTOGRAPHER. HE IS KEEN TO HELP YOU GET THE MOST YOU CAN OUT OF EACH SHOT, SO HE TAKES HIS TIME, HE CHATS WARMLY WITH YOU AND THEN HAS A GREAT EYE TO CAPTURE THE ‘ESSENCE’ OF YOU; GREAT FOR SHOTS WHICH REFLECT YOUR CASTING.
JOE HAS PHOTOGRAPHED A LOT OF MY ACTORS, ALL OF WHOM LOVED THE EXPERIENCE, THE RESULTS AND THOROUGHLY RECOMMEND HIM.
RICHARD GOODWIN, ACTING COACH
WHEN ARRIVING FOR MY HEADSHOTS, WE ENGAGED IN SMALL TALK FOR A SHORT WHILE, THIS WENT A LONG WAY IN MAKING ME FEEL COMFORTABLE AND RELAXED. DURING THE PHOTO SHOOT HE WAS VERY EASY GOING AND PATIENT, AND IN MANY WAYS ALLOWED ME TO TAKE THE LEAD. HE WOULD REGULARLY STOP SHOOTING TO SHOW ME WHAT HE'S GOT SO FAR AND TO GIVE ME AN IDEA OF WHAT'S HAPPENING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE CAMERA, THIS HELPED ME UNDERSTAND WHAT LOOKS GOOD AND WHAT DOESN'T. ULTIMATELY I WAS VERY SATISFIED WITH MY HEADSHOTS AND THE EXPERIENCE IN GENERAL.
LEON JACKSON, ACTOR
I HAVE RECENTLY JUST HAD SOME HEADSHOTS TAKEN BY JOE AND I COULDN’T SAY ANYTHING NEGATIVE ABOUT HIM. BEFORE HAVING MY HEADSHOTS TAKEN I WAS QUITE NERVOUS BUT AT THE END OF THE SESSION I LEFT FEELING VERY COMFORTABLE AND IN HIGH SPIRITS. JOE MAKES YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE FROM THE GET GO, HELPING YOU SETTLE IN WITH FRIENDLY CONVERSATION AND SETTING THE SCENE WITH MUSIC THAT HE ASKS WHICH IS TO YOUR TASTE.
JOE IS EASY GOING AND ASKS WHAT KIND OF SHOTS YOU WOULD LIKE TO SETTLE FOR, IF YOU DON’T HAVE A CLUE (WHICH I DIDN’T) THEN HE SUGGESTS CERTAIN THINGS OR TRIES TO CATCH YOU WITH NATURAL EXPRESSIONS.
I COULDN’T RECOMMEND JOE ENOUGH AND WHEN I EVENTUALLY NEED MORE SHOTS TAKEN, I SHALL BE RETURNING TO JOE (THAT’S IF HE HAS THE TIME!)
NYLE MCLOUGHLIN, ACTOR
HAD A REALLY FUN HEADSHOT SESSION WITH JOE. WE TALKED AS FRIENDS, GOT TO KNOW EACH OTHER, WHICH MADE THE ATMOSPHERE VERY RELAXED.
HE SEEMED TO GENUINELY CARE ABOUT YOU AS AN INDIVIDUAL AND WANTED TO GET TO KNOW YOU IN ORDER TO TRUTHFULLY CAPTURE YOU THROUGH THE LENS.
WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND JOE AS A PHOTOGRAPHER, A TRUE PROFESSIONAL WHO KNEW HIS STUFF AND WAS JUST A LOVELY GUY.
