On the day Simon was communicative, flexible and very positive which helped the day run smoothly and easily.The final photos were even better than I could have hoped! I had the photos within 48 hours of the event and he was an absolutely pleasure to work with when choosing the best images. .Simon is certainly my trusted go-to photographer and I would not hesitate to recommend my nearest and dearest to him for photos for any event.read more

Simon used his genius to photograph a recent fundraising event I hosted for Just Peoples. He captured the ambience and atmosphere of the evening perfectly, which for a charity event particularly is... extremely important. Simon’s photos beautifully conveyed that feeling of excitement, connection and inspiration in the room, particularly while listening to the guest speaker, or while they were having meaningful conversations and were inspired to contribute to the world through Just Peoples.I am so excited to share Simon's pictures with our community and use them to promote future events so people can visualise the awesome time they will have when they join us next time.Simon sent me some screen grabs within one hour of the event finishing which was really special as in this instant world we live in it can be hard to wait for professional shots, so I particularly appreciated to get these through before I’d even made it home.I love working with Simon, he’s fun, he’s funny and he puts everyone at ease ensuring their natural beauty, inside and out, shines through.read more

We are so delighted we made the decision to have Simon take some family photographs with our adult children and grandson. The milestone of our grandson turning three, and that the CoVid-19... restrictions highlighted just how important our family are to us. We know that too often time slips by and precious moments can be missed.Thank you Simon for your professional approach in creating a range of group, small group and individual family photos (taken in our own home and garden) that we all treasure. It was so much fun!read more

Simon recently completed a corporate photographic shoot for one of my clients. With executives in Australia from global offices around the world, we took the opportunity to update our library of... corporate head, team and operational shots. Simon was utmost professional in his approach and dealing with all levels of staff and management including the global executive team. He was flexible and no-fuss, and got the job done working amongst a fully operational corporate office while also demonstrating creativity, independence and flair to ensure we captured some candid, informal shots as well. The results were terrific. I would recommend Simon due to the quality of his service and photographs and value of the investment.read more

I discovered Simon on Easy Weddings and after browsing his work just knew it was the style of images we were seeking. From the moment I spoke with Simon over the phone I knew there was no one else I... wanted to capture our day. He was witty, professional and he just seemed to understand what I was seeking instantly.My now husband & I believe ourselves to be a couple of the most unphotogenic people getting around and hate having our photos taken and yet Simon was able to achieve the impossible. We wanted classic yet casual shots and he nailed it painlessly.We absolutely love them, the images capture the mood and story of the evening perfectly. A gorgeous blend of classic intended shots and casual natural unknown moments which are some of our favorites.We have the most beautiful photos to remember our wedding day and we are forever grateful for that :)Thanks Simon.read more
