Nicole & Tyrone say "Thank you"

Daniel Davies Photography

I was absolutely delighted to recieve a very generous testimonial over the weekend from Nicole & Tyrone. I photographed their wedding party at the Bushey Country Club at the end of September after they had been married in the Maldives, and put together an album of photographs from both events. This is what they had to say:

Dear Dan

I am writing to say a massive thank you for your photographic services leading up to and on the day of our wedding party. We were thoroughly impressed with your professionalism; and Tyrone and I thought you were brilliant in making us feel relaxed on the day of our pre-wedding shoot which really helped us know what to expect at the wedding party. We feel that you truly captured the spirit of the day and the finished product; the storybook album is absolutely stunning; something we will be able to treasure forever.

Our friends and family also really enjoyed receiving the cool thank you cards; and being able to view the pictures online!

Many thanks again

Nicole and Tyrone

It's always a huge pleasure to recieve such a generous testimonial from such a lovely couple. Their Wedding party was fantastic, with a great venue, beautiful surroundings and a bunch of really fun people. In turn I wish them both a long and successful marriage. Given how happy they looked on their wedding day, I have no doubt that they'll acheive this!

Professional Corporate Headshots: Mike Varney Physiotheraphy

Just before Christmas, I had the pleasure of visiting the lovely people at Mike Varney Physiotherapy at their superbly appointed practice in Harlow, Essex. Amongst other things they had asked me to create some corporate headshots of their staff.

A scout around the practice showed me a suitable out of the way place to set up, and so at the end of a corridor, sandwiched between the Sports Hall and the Fire Exit, I set up my lights ready for my subjects.

I spent between five and ten minutes with each member of Mike's team, running through some simple variations on poses and taking maybe 20-30 shots of each of them. These were returned to the practice the next day, and I invited them to select 2-3 shots each for final retouching.

I completed the retouch the week after Christmas, delivering them on DVD in a range of resolutions, and sending a copy to the excellent Dean Vale, who manages their website.

The practice made their final selection and Dean has now uploaded these to their website.

Take a closer look here and see how a consistently exposed, professionally shot and finished headshot can help lift your website, and your personal profile above the mundane.

Because Mike and his team have my images on a DVD they can also use the images for any other promotional purposes - pay once, use many times - in a shrinking economy that's the kind of offer that no one can afford to ignore.
