IN THEIR WORDS
I would recommend Andrew wholeheartedly. The entire experience of working with Andrew has been such a pleasure, and I’m absolutely delighted with the results
He would be my first choice for any future photographic projects.
QUITE THE MOST BRILLIANT, CREATIVE AND THOUGHTFULL GRAPHIC ARTIST I’VE EVER COME ACROSS
This, from Lady Eatwell, in response to receiving the photo book she commissioned me to make ‘in secret’, about Queens’ College, Cambridge, as a surprise gift for her husband, Professor Lord John Eatwell, the College’s outgoing President:
I can’t actually find the words to express our gratitude and admiration for The Book.
It’s quite astonishing. I have waited until today to examine it in detail with John. What gave me the greatest gratification was to watch his reaction. He is utterly stunned by it. There have been many books on Queens’ over the centuries, some rather special, but none approaches yours. You are quite the most brilliant, creative and thoughtful photographic artist I’ve ever come across. And the fact that you have a personal history with Queens’ is at the centre of the genius of the collection.
I am trying to work out how many discreet visits and how many hours you’ve devoted to this best of farewell gifts we could have dreamed of. This way we can savour the full privilege of our years here.
These photographs will be enjoyed many many times over the coming years. And with great joy and appreciation.”
Andrew did a great job. Despite not having much experience of Pilates or Craniosacral Therapy he was able to quickly pick up the essence of my work and capture it beautifully, both during the serenity of the Cranial work and during the chaos of a group Pilates class. I am also really pleased with the pictures of the studio. After a rigorous de-clutter he choreographed pictures of small rooms full of equipment, showcasing their spacious airy feel. And the most amazing part he managed to cajole a pleasant expression from me for my mug shot – a stunning achievement.
I KNOW WHO TO CALL NEXT SEASON!
I’m delighted with the pictures Andrew took for my company, Mamma Couture. It was not easy, with three kids under five to direct, but the result is amazing. Thank you very much. I know who to call for next season!
Andrew did an amazing job. I am usually disappointed with photo shoot outcomes, but Andrew produced amazing photos for me and my husband. He made sure we were satisfied and the delivery of photos was speedy! I would definitely come back for more!
CAPTURED THE ATMOSPHERE
Thanks so much for the excellent pictures you took of the rehearsals for How Like An Angel in Gloucester, the show that brought together the vocal group I Fagiolini and the Australian contemporary circus company, Circa. You really captured the atmosphere of that day – the acrobats warming up, the singers rehearsing, and in particular the beautiful architecture of the cathedral. We plan to use the images to publicise the show in the future, but for now they remain a lovely memory of that excellent day, and of the tour itself.
PERFECTLY INTERPRETED BRIEF
I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have your lovely pictures of our summer schools; they are exactly what we wanted. You interpreted our brief perfectly, but more than that, you entered into the spirit of what we do, and understood what makes people enjoy our courses. Thank you.
I would recommend Andrew wholeheartedly. In most circumstances I dread being photographed, but right from our initial discussion Andrew created a team spirit and made me believe that we would be able to get good results. As a musician himself he understood immediately (probably better than I did) the kind of thing I needed and when it came to the photoshoot he was endlessly patient and full of ideas – both planned and improvised creatively in response to the surroundings. He has a great eye for composition. The entire experience of working with Andrew has been such a pleasure, and I’m absolutely delighted with the results. He would be my first choice for any future photographic projects.
We needed a commercial photographer with an eye for detail and the ability to make quite a dull business come alive. In just two days of picture taking from all perspectives Andrew Wilkinson has done exactly that. The quality of the shots is excellent and through the magic of his lens, brought movement and interest to our business – not an easy task in a warehouse! We also needed some of the pictures edited and sent over to a tight deadline and Andrew pulled out the stops to get them to us ahead of time. We’d certainly use Andrew again and recommend him to others.
FINALLY… LOVELY SHOTS OF US ALL
Thank you so much for our recent family photo session at Wimpole. Your easy going, non-intrusive approach made for a very relaxed morning (which even the children really enjoyed!). The finished photographs and photobook are truly fantastic – it feels great to finally have some lovely shots of us all together on a family day out. Thanks again – we really appreciate it!
A STROKE OF GENIUS
Thanks so much for my recent headshots Andy, the shooting location you chose was a stroke of genius, as the lighting and backdrop is perfect. I also really appreciated your relaxed attitude as for someone who does not love being photographed it could have been very stressful, but you put me completely at ease. However, your relaxed attitude was also matched with a determination to get the right shot, which i really appreciate when looking at the finished result.
I needed some headshots and portrait photography that would help take my personal branding up a few steps and give me a decent range of shots for my website. Andrew was thorough in trying to understand my brief and what I really wanted, and I’m delighted with the results – really a lot of images of high quality and range. Andrew chose good locations that matched my line of business well. I would definitely use Andrew again and recommend Andrew to other small businesses and consultancies.
FUN & DISCOVERY
Andrew’s expertise, creativity and relaxed approach transformed a standard photographic brief – business head and shoulder shots of a reluctant subject – into a portfolio of images that radiate personality. The shoot itself was a morning of fun and discovery: Andrew found unusual locations that are absolutely right for the look and feel of our business. We’ll be commissioning Andrew again, and warmly recommend his skills and approach to both businesses and private clients.
