Now the year is drawing to an end, I have been looking back at what a fantastic time it has been: all the work that has been done, targets met, new ventures explored, and all the thanks I would like to give; it has indeed been a very productive one. Some of the absolute highlights have included. . . .
Working With The Best:
My clients really are the best of the best. Regardless of if they are serving Surrey the highest quality, ethically sourced food and drink, providing an exceptional salon experience to the very lucky areas of Haslemere and Farnham, delivering outstanding business development services, changing the world for the better, one business at a time, bringing the most beautiful and meaningful products to market, crafting masterpieces of the most decadent luxury kind: they all have one thing in common; they are exceptional at what they do. Like myself, they take great pride in the work they create, and nothing but the best is rolled-out from their companies. They go above and beyond every time, and they also realise the work is never done.
Building a business and optimising your offering to the best it can be for your very precious clients, is a life long commitment. In developing their businesses, they appreciate the huge scope there is to communicate with their market in a cohesive and professional manner, through strategically crafted photography. When so much time and effort is invested in business, like all communications, imagery that truly reflects the brand and resonates with those ideal clients is imperative. There is nothing more rewarding, than to see the businesses I work with, forging forward with commercial photography that truly reflects the high level quality of their work.

“My sisters and I found working with Suzannah on our website and new business images an absolute delight.
From our initial chat we knew that not only was Suzannah extremely knowledgable and professional (asking all of the questions other photographers didn’t bother asking) but her clear enthusiasm and passion for what we wanted to create was genuine and it ensured the project we developed together the best it could possibly be, better than we had even hoped for!
Suzannah’s time spent researching, collecting images, thinking, prepping and creating was extraordinary and we will be forever grateful to her. She went above and beyond, from collecting items we could use in the shots to staying hours after a very cold shoot to capture extra shots for us. Suzannah’s visions and beautiful photographs are a result of her ability to really listen and understand who you are and what you are offering, combined with her talented mind and love for what she does which shines through every image.
I could say lots more but I will save it for my next review after our next shoot as we will now only ever work with her!”

“Suzannah is THE most talented and professional commercial photographer, I have had the privilege to work with. I initially commissioned Suzannah to take some new headshots for me. I had seen her portfolio, and was impressed by the breath of her talent. At the shoot I soon realised that she was the ideal photographer to work with! Suzannah is organised, methodical, focused, and technically clearly knows her stuff. We then went on to collaborate on a number of commercial shoot opportunities together.
When it was time to look at updating my website, I had learnt from working with Suzannah; the value of owning your own images! I didn’t want to use stock photography to articulate my brand - what I needed was photography that encapsulated my brand, my identity and what I wanted people to feel, when they visited my site. From that initial brief, Suzannah came back with the most breathtaking visual concept - I was simply blown away! We worked together to develop it, and Suzannah involved / worked with me every step along the way, but I was also comfortable giving her creative control - I had complete trust in her technical and creative abilities!
Suzannah shares my passion for the importance of brand identity, and literally lived and breathed my brand alongside me. The ideas were developed, and honed, and sometimes completely changed - but the result was something that I can say, we are both truly proud of. It’s been a joy and a pleasure to work with someone of this calibre, and I know we will collaborate on many more projects in the years to come.”

My last, but very much not least highlight of the year, was having the pleasure of talking to fellow business owners at The Inspiration Space in Guildford, Surrey about building their brand with on-brand photography. Speaking alongside various other branding specialist mentors, covering PR, Graphic Design and Social Media Content, it was a buzzing session. I have taken great pleasure in subsequently observing the tips we shared being used in practice by those who attended.
Going forward in 2019, as always, I will be actively developing my business. This year I am also very excited to be celebrating my 13th year since setting up. I shall be embarking upon some exciting new partnerships and projects to further progress my mission to empower and arm businesses with the high quality photography they need to evolve and flourish. It is already shaping up to be another brilliant year ahead!
I look forward to sharing and watching all the fantastic developments the new year shall bring for us all, the people I shall meet and being part of their journey. Thank you for being part of mine. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to each and every one of you!
