TESTIMONIALS

Great photography! We love working with Michael, he produces high-quality photos for our events. 

EAST MEETS WEST CLUB

Such a great service and stunning photography. We look forward to working with Michael again in the future!

SLICK SHOWREELS LTD

I can’t recommend Michael enough. Our wedding photos were everything we could have hoped for. Michael was very professional and a true gentleman Listened to what we wanted, and worked his own magic. Thank your very much Daniel and Lauren.

DAN AND LAUREN / NEWLY WEDS

I hired Michael for my daughter’s 18th birthday party with friends and family. Michael, is an extremely pleasant and friendly individual who knows his job well. Very professional and skilled. I am very happy with the photos and service provided by Michael.

VICKY GOR / PRIVATE EVENT ORGANISER

Michael has worked on several theatre projects with me over the last 3 to 4 years. I have found him both instinctive and technically accomplished and he has always delivered exciting and beautiful images. He understands how a poster needs to work for the production and although good subjects, actors are not models, and his communication with them has always led to the very best results. I have one of his images (the poster from the London production of Lost Souls and Lunatics) on my bedroom door. A beautiful homage to Bacon.

LIL WARREN / DIRECTOR AND WRITER

Michael really went above and beyond at short notice to accommodate all our wedding requests. With little notice he was both imaginative and thoughtful, which shine through in the pictures we received. I would recommend to friends for sure!

BEN AND WHITNEY / NEWLY WEDS

Michael was a fantastic photographer for our staff Christmas party. He managed to capture the vibrant feel of the evening and the quantity of pictures he provided ensured that every member of staff has some great shots. His professional approach leading up to the event instilled in my great confidence and on the night his approachable nature ensured that all the team willingly involved him in their celebrations.

JOHN HINDLEY / DOMINION THEATRE

We can’t thank you enough for capturing our wedding day so beautifully. I can t stop looking through the albums!! It all happened in a flash that I almost forgot some of the finer detail and funny moments so thank-you for capturing them perfectly.

CHARLOTTE AND BEN / NEWLY WEDS

Michael is an attentive professional at all times, both as a stills photographer and a cinematographer. He delivers quality in every shot and has produced some true beauties. It has been a pleasure to work with Michael on multiple occasions and I look forward to working with him again in the future.

REBECCA HOLBOURN / DIRECTOR

My wedding was such a lovely experience, I was feeling so many emotions but the way Michael shot the pictures was so natural that at some points I didn't know he was there to feel the pressure of the camera on us. We are very grateful to Michael, he came to our rescue in a such of moment of need and his pictures were beautiful, he captured the life moments of our union and our love together with our family and friends. We have beautiful pictures smiling and laughing. When ever I look back on them I remember those moments! Michael is a gentle soul and a reliable professional, we had a very good communication with him and a very positive vibe so I recommend him ladies and gentlemen with all my heart!

ANCA AND FAWAD / NEWLY WEDS

Michael was very professional and friendly. He even managed to get my four year old to sit still and have his photo taken. Which is a major achievement. The quality of the pictures is amazing and you can really see how at ease everyone was. I will definitely use him again and recommend him to my family and friends.

STEPHANIE BROWN / FAMILY PORTRAITURE CLIENT

Michael took the time and care to really understand what we wanted from our family photo shoot and on the day, made us feel comfortable in front of the camera immediately - It was actually a really fun shoot! He worked very well with our dog too and the resulting photos were stunning. He helped size them exactly as needed ready for print and was always helpful with any questions we had in the run up. Highly recommend!

PRIYANCA PATEL / FAMILY PORTRAITURE CLIENT

Michael created the image used on 09 Lives poster, flyers, 2m banners and social media for The Changeling. The show went on to be BBC Radio London's Pick Of The Week and to be SOLD OUT! Michael listens to the brief and is very open to ideas but he also brings many of his own so is a great collaborator. He is very conscientious about making sure you are happy with the results and the cast all found him very easy to deal with. He was also our production and rehearsal photographer. I also know several of the cast went on to use Michael for their own projects and professional headshots.

09 LIVES / THEATRE SPECIALISTS

Worked with Michael few times during my study at LCF. And it was a pleasure to work with him. He understood what I wanted and also has his own vision for the photoshoot. We have done studio shoot and outdoor shoots. And all of them were amazing and I always received the photos on time as well. For some of the photos, I have asked him for some small changes. He has always gotten back to me on time and met my expectations. Would highly recommend him and I'm sure I will definitely work with him again in the near future.

YANG MING QIAN / FASHION DESIGNER

On behalf of the Golden Bricks team, I wanted to personally thank you for your help last week! While the man with the camera often goes unnoticed, he carries the greatest responsibility among us all. He captures those moments of interaction that remain a distant memory and conjures them back to life through his imagery. As such, without your help, the conversations that defined the purpose of the evening would be lost. Thank you ever so much and I look forward to reliving the memories.

MUNENI CHIRINDA / BARRATT LONDON

You work amazingly quick and got some great shots of something that can never be repeated!

JOHN WATSON / ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY

Michael shot my first headshots when I joined BBC News in 2015 and I asked him to come back to do my updated ones in 2018. Michael made me feel super relaxed when taking the pictures, had a good eye for detail and made sure I looked smart, and offered lots of creative suggestions on lighting and backgrounds to get the perfect shot. All I had to do was turn up and try and look presentable! Really happy with my photographs and Michael also offered to make edits where necessary.

CHRIS FOX / BBC NEWS

Michael was attentive to my requests and a delight to work with. I will use him again for another photo shoot, and would recommend him for your special day, whether it be an Engagement, a Wedding Anniversary, 21st Birthday Celebration or Wedding Day! You won't be disappointed!

SIMPLY FLOWERS / FLORIST

Michael photographed our wedding at Brighton Town Hall and we are delighted with the results. He was attentive, efficient and brought a friendly air of professional to the day. We feel very fortunate to have had him as our photographer and can't recommend his services highly enough.

SOPHIE AND  ED / NEWLY WEDS

Michael shot my parents 40th Wedding Anniversary. Not only was he completely professional but he made all of the guest feel at ease and provided us with plenty of options while shooting. After a short turn around, we were able to see the finished products of the photos. They were completely stunning and he’d managed to capture the essence of all of our guests. Not only do our photos sit proudly on the wall but also in a photo album. I cannot recommend this talented man strongly enough. I will 100% be booking him for any event we have in future. Thank you so much for capturing a truly special occasion.

JENNA PICKERING / RUBY WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

Michael very kindly photographed our civil ceremony in London, and he was wonderful. He is highly professional, he was quick to respond to emails, and completely understood what we wanted from him, and most of all took excellent photos.

THOMAS AND LESLIE  / NEWLY WEDS

We wanted a photographer with fresh ideas and a relaxed photographic style that would truly convey our informal, quirky wedding at The Bell in Ticehurst. Michael "got" us immediately and saw us through the entire process, with a detailed pre-wedding meeting that laid out everything we wanted and a few things we hadn't thought of. When we visited the venue for a walk-through, Michael also attended that, highlighting issues we had to think about in terms of the photography. On the day itself, the Amity team worked so hard for us! They weren't remotely intrusive and integrated really well with our guests, also providing a Photo Booth service. The photos themselves have exceeded expectations. Cant recommend highly enough.

JAMES AND GREG / NEWLY WEDS

I hired Michael last summer to shoot some portraits for my website. Not only was I really pleased with the shots I got, but he really went above and beyond in terms of concept and style pointers. I had some idea of what I wanted, but he really took it in his own hands and together we produced some fantastic images. Last month I returned to him for some headshots, and again couldn’t be happier with the results.
