Client Testimonials, Reviews and Recommendations
Spike is one of the photographers in our national network and we have used him on a number of occasions, but I felt compelled to write a recommendation on the back of his latest job for us, the first with which I was directly involved. During the course of the ten days building up to the job, and throughout the day itself, the timescales were constantly moving, due to the difficult logistical nature of the job - photographing a multi-million pound piece of subsea equipment being loaded onto a specially chartered Antonov aircraft. Each time the schedule changed, there was no complaint from Spike, even when, on the day - a Sunday - the schedule was moved back several hours, to the extent that Spike was on site for 10 hours. We kept in contact during the day and Spike delivered great results.
I cannot praise my experience of working with Spike highly enough.
I first met Spike when we needed some shots of a Radio Station we had just built in Mansfield, Notts. The reason we needed them was because this was the first time that we had actaully split our desks in 2 so that a Computer screen could slot in the middle. Up until then our desks were one piece like we had supplied to talk Sport and Virgin Radio and this was our evolution. Spike took some great shots and was creative in every way. I was so impressed that we quickly got him down to photograph our entire range for our then new online shop.
Subsequent jobs were Spike photographing Bruno Brookes Radio and TV School that we had built and a launch of a station in Trafalgar Square plus our new Outside Broadcast Vehicle. Spike and I have become firm friends and depsite the distance he in the UK me in Australia, I have no doubts that you should hire Spike for whatever photographic work you need. You will be making a great investment ..you get a cool, calm great professional award winning guy who has photographed everyone from the Dalai Lama to Tony Blair!
I wholeheartedly recommend Spike for all your photo needs. Howie Thomas Aussie, South Africa, Kiwi & America Logos
I engaged the professional services of 'Spike' Photography for four years whilst at EMB Limited - and previously for six years whilst at Business Link Nottinghamshire.
During this period, the marketing and communications team exclusively relied on 'Spike' for the creative photography for many corporate case studies, newsletters, corporate publications, regional news features and VIP visits.
We enjoyed a great professional relationship with 'Spike' and he constantly delivered an excellent combination of reliability, creativity and fair pricing - and could always be relied on to get the perfect picture - often at short notice - resulting in engaging images that were regularly accepted by editorial teams of regional publications and industry specific magazines.
I am happy to recommend his services for any forthcoming photographic assignments that require creative thinking under pressure - with the knowledge that his work will always guarantee picture perfect results.

Spike never fails to produce newsworthy photographs that stand out from the crowd. His photographs capture the essence of a person in a professional capacity in a way that is unique to Spike. The images show the depth of knowledge that is behind the camera and achieves a result that is always complimentary to his subjects. The photographs always suit their purpose but they have an extra creative edge that sets them apart from others within his field. The service that Spike's Photography provides is efficient and professional and offers a depth of expertise and understanding of Business needs and the media industry that only comes with experience of the field and natural talent combined.
I first worked with Spike in 2004, and I have always been impressed by his professionalism, passion for his business, and quality of his photography. If you need commercial photography, then you can trust him to do a great job.

Spike Photography brings creativity and professionalism to each job. He has the ability to get the best from his subject - whether they are toddlers, managing directors or nervous members of the public - and has produced amazing photographs time and time again.
I imagine two of the most important characteristics of being a great photographer would have to be having a very good eye for detail, and being able to bring out the best in your subjects. Spike has both of these in spades. It was a pleasure to work with him and I look forward to doing it again.
Spike recently took some photos for Business Link and his service was impressive. The whole photo shot was done in a professional manner and with a great sense of humour. His passion for his work was amazing and kept us so relaxed that we did not even realise how long the session had lasted. I would certainly recommmend him to others as I think its worthy having Spike as a photographer
