I have never liked having my photograph taken, and have lived with lot’s of hang-ups about my appearance for over 40 years. I have had a couple of photoshoots with professional photographers in the past and been underwhelmed by results!

I decided that it was time I grew up and had some proper pictures taken. Claire was amazing; she sent me some suggestions about clothing, hair, make up etc beforehand (who knew you shouldn’t wear wool because it looks bobbly?) and made me feel so at ease and comfortable during the shoot.

Goodness knows how many pictures she took but the 18 she sent to me were just amazing. I am absolutely delighted and can’t express what a confidence boost the whole experience was for me.

Thank you Claire. I’ll be back for more next week!

Thank you for the wonderful photographs you took of our wedding day. Dave and I are really pleased.

When I first came to you I had a specific idea of what I wanted and I am grateful to you for completing those wishes exactly as I requested. I am especially pleased as to how the formal shots were organised on the day, everyone has said how it didn’t encroach on the proceedings and how relaxed it all was.

When Dave and I came to the studio for our engagement shots (which I think is an excellent idea), you immediately put us at ease and again the results were lovely.

I really appreciate the efforts you made, everyone I have spoken to has said how lovely the photos are on the gallery.

I am looking forward to choosing the shots of our special day to keep forever…

I hired Claire Goldsmith Photography to take some live images from my business coaching workshops. I wanted to capture the engagement and enthusiasm of the attending business owners, and use the pictures within a promotional brochure that we were working upon.

Claire held a detailed discussion ahead of attending the event to ensure she gathered a full briefing of the requirement, and was both thorough and helpful with suggestions on how to obtain great looking shots without intruding into the event itself too heavily. On the evening of the workshop, Claire arrived early and was well prepared for when the delegates arrived. She was courteous and professional, allowing the attendees to gain from the workshop itself, but also obtain active photographs ‘capturing the moment’ perfectly. The clients were unfazed by her presence throughout as she was sensitive to the need for discretion and quietness.

The pictures produced by Claire have achieved a fantastic result and work perfectly in the intended brochure. I would heartily recommend Claire to any business looking to achieve a strong professional image through quality imagery. She knows her stuff, is highly efficient and effective.

Claire recently completed a photoshoot for my new summer flower collection. The end use was both web and print and Claire did a superb job. The shoot was really important to me and we spent some time discussing the brief. The final result was fantastic, the quality of the photographs was amazing and I was so impressed with the time Claire took to set up each shot and ensure each picture was exactly right. I will certainly be working with Claire in the future.
