 Howard is fantastic to work with & has produced three videos for us. From putting the initial ideas together, to the shoot itself & throughout the editing process Howard is great to work with. He's friendly, professional, flexible and produces a great result. His work has successfully captured the experience of cycling in Girona with Eat Sleep Cycle and enabled us to showcase our product to our potential clients. The videos have formed a key part of our marketing strategy & are invaluable on our website & social media.

 Howard is unbeatable if you are documenting a sporting event, especially one for a worthy cause. He absorbed the goals of our epic cycling challenge (the purpose of which was to test mobile technologies for athletes with Type 1 diabetes) and took just the right stills and video to highlight the highs and lows (pun intended) of the event. Howard's ability with action shots is superb. Can't recommend him highly enough. 

Lauren SarnomHealth Marketing Manager, GSMA

 Howard has been the core photographer and lead team for the GSMA Mobile World Congress and GSMA Mobile Asia Congress for many years. He is an incredibly professional, personable and creative individual, and an amazing photographer. He makes capturing beautiful moments and working with difficult locations and people look easy. I thank him for his partnership and would highly recommend his photography services.

 I’ve known and worked with Howard for many, many years - he is a true professional! We worked together on a number of demanding and challenging projects in Barcelona in connection with the GSMA Mobile World Congress events. No matter what the demand, or how short the timeframe to deliver, Howard was there working seamlessly alongside our CEO, putting him at ease and ensuring he captured the key moments, especially when meeting with the many celebrities we hosted, such as Queen Rania of Jordan, Kevin Spacey, Robert Redford, Duran Duran, Eric Schmidt, to name but a few! I have no hesitation in recommending Howard. If you are looking for a professional photographer/videographer, look no further…..!

 Howard is an excellent photographer, one of the very best we used on Police Review in my eight years at the magazine. He's also reliable, excellent to work with, knows his stuff and worth every penny. He won't let you down. 

Chris HerbertFormer Editor, Police Review Magazine

 Howard is a great photographer, always delivering a range of great images, and someone I had the pleasure to work and commission in both my role at the Royal Geographical Society and the Environmental Services Association. He was always able to put people at ease - whether that was formal shots with high profile politicians, celebrities like Michael Palin and Sir David Attenborough, or members of staff - and worked across a wide range of different events and locations, including party conferences, seminars, award presentations and receptions.
