Neil took the photos of our little ones at the beach, as a birthday present from hubby and the kids. The pics are absolutely stunning and have completely captured their personalities and relationship. Hubby said Neil was great with the kids and couldn’t do enough to get the right shots – THOROUGHLY recommend him!!
Neil takes some amazing shots and is very creative in capturing unique images. He makes his models feel at ease and relaxed so they not only enjoy the shoot but the natural mood shows through in the shots he takes. Neil seems to be able to turn his hand to all kinds of photography be it portrait, wedding or landscapes and he manages to capture some wonderfuls stills. What’s more he is a thoroughly nice guy and you will enjoy working with him whatever your needs are, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Neil.
The Brightside Band Visit Website
We did a photo shoot with Neil to produce publicity shots for our function band “The Brightside Band” and we really couldn’t be happier with the results. The photoshoot was brilliantly orchestrated and Neil was amazing to work with. Before we new it, Neil was saying, “There, I think we’ve got it” and within a few days, we had our press shots ready for the website.
Fantastic photos, great photoshoot, amazing retouching and compostition. Have a look at them here, or on our website, and you’ll see what we mean. We really couldn’t have asked for better!
Great job, highly recommended!
We had a fantastic family shoot with Neil at Upton Country Park. Our three year old girl is at a stage where she takes time to warm to new people, however, Neil managed to put her at ease straight away. Neil made the photographs available to us very quickly and was really helpful every step of the way. We wanted some relaxed, natural family pictures and we are more than happy with the results. Neil also took some photographs of our little girl on her own, and we feel that he has really captured her personality. These are pictures which we will treasure forever.
We would not hesitate in recommending Neil and in fact we have already recommended him to some friends.
Thank you Neil!
Great family photo shoot with Neil, not an easy task getting 3 little ones to pose and feel comfortable in front of the camera but Neil managed it and the results are fantastic – thank you! We know where we’re coming for our annual family portrait!!
Neil, thank you for a great shoot which I thoroughly enjoyed. It’s difficult to pose and act naturally when you’re infront of the lense but you managed to totally put me at ease and have fun at the shoot. The location was fantastic and well chosen, your ideas creative and ‘out of the box’ and you seem to always have the right feel for great pictures 🙂 I have recommended you to friends and will keep referring you! Thank you so much, Kat
Where do we start? There is so much to thank you for it will be hard not to make this letter an essay!
Firstly our wedding photographs can only be discribed as exquisit! You have managed to catch all those special moments from the start to the very end of the day and some how you have caught the magical feelings we shared. We look at your photos and it brings such a warm feeling inside that we could not have asked for a better way to remember that lovely day.
People say that their wedding day goes so quickly after the months of preparation put into it and that they wish they could do it all again. Your photos have made us able to relive our wedding day time and time again.
Not only did you catch the romantic side of the wedding but the boys pictures on the beach were soooo cool. They were not just photographs but really a work of art.
There are so many many things to think about on the day because you want everything to be so perfect but I have to say we didn´t think about where you were and what you were doing as you just did your job with such profession.
Parts of the day that you don´t get to see as the bride (the bridesmaids coming down the isle and little things during the evening) were captured in your amazing photographs. After seeing them I felt like I had seen the whole day and not missed a thing.
Your attention to detail has resulted in some beautiful traditional wedding photographs aswell as some really unique ones that we will enjoy looking over for the rest of our lives.
We would recomend you with the drop of a hat and will be happy to have all our family photographs taken by you in the future.
Thank you once again Neil, we only wish there was another word that could show our appreciation.
Mr and Mrs Gustafsson
Thank you so much Neil.
You have done such a wonderfull job, Simon and the girls had a great afternoon.
Such amazing photo’s I will treasure forever. x
WOW!! – I think that is probably the easiest place to start. The photos which you took of my Sister and I are fantastic, you really managed to capture the “all grown up” theme that we wanted yet balance it so beautifully with the essence of playfulness which siblings have. The collection of photos for our Mum and Dad to mark the stage in our lives where we have both grown up and moved out caused tears of happiness on Christmas morning!
The photo session was relaxed and the shots were captured with such ease that the pictures looked incredibly natural, without feeling staged or messy – quite incredible. I’m normally the camera shy one hiding in the background of photos but your artistic style and general air of calm made the photoshoot thoroughly enjoyable.
Thank you so much for these photos (and others taken in the past), I will be recommending you to anyone looking for a photographer and will be booking with you again in the future.
Thank you again,
Neil is an awesome photographer, but he must know that anyway 🙂 the pictures turned out very cool, he certainly has an eye for flattering angles and lighting, to expose the pretty side and conceal the pasty and lazy winter after effects 😀
I think every other feedback post has mentioned how much at ease he make his models feel, but with the danger of sounding unoriginal we’re gonna repeat it anyway. The otherwise daunting prospect of having to pose in front of that huge black hole, that patronising lense, was made so much more fun and natural, than either of us ever expected.
Considering it was the first time either of us have met Neil and the first time one of us has ever posed in front of that one-eyed monster, surprisingly we started to come out of our shell. Even experiment with looks a little. It is also very helpful when he suggests the poses and adjusts them, when ideas run low in the tired models’ minds and hands start looking like claws 🙂
We would be excited to do another shoot and would definitely recommend this guy to anyone who is looking to make some stunning keepsake pictures that you would be proud to display and come back to for a confidence boost when you need one.
I’ve always thought that a true photographer is someone who sees beauty in everything around and wants to capture that on film. Neil has that kindness and love of beauty that makes you feel it too.
As everyone else, I am very happy with the photos Neil took of me. He made me feel very at ease during the session and he has a great sense of humor. Best of all, I am really pleased with the images, and would not hesitate to use him again in future, or to recommend him to anyone. Thanks again, Neil, for bringing the best out in me.
Choosing Neil as photographer for our wedding celebrations was one of the best decisions we made!
We had very clear ideas on the kind of images we were looking for: either slightly unconventional, with a creative twist or the super-natural, documentary style ones.
Neil fully understood our vision and what he produced for us, at the end was -in one word- perfection!
His work far exceeded our expectations: it’s artistic, original, impactful, colourful, harmonious… The result is a strikingly beautiful collection of photographs as everlasting memories of a special occasion. How blessed!
Not only were the most meaningful moments captured, Neil was able to frame and immortalise the actual atmosphere in the air, the emotions of the day. It’s a pure pleasure to look at each and every shot, repeatedly !!
We will be forever grateful.
Neil was the Photographer at mine and Chris’ Wedding and what an amazing Photographer he is too!! All of our guests commented on how wonderful it was to have a relaxed, kind and creative Photographer doing the pictures – quite a positive change from the Wedding Photographers people had met in the past .
Neil let us be ourselves and really captured the spirit of us as a couple (we like to mess around and can’t be serious for long;) he created beautiful tokens to cherish of the event by guiding us into the slightly more formal shots and then just letting us be as creative as we wished for the other photos.
The amazing talent which Neil has not only in taking pictures but making the people in those pictures at ease is incredible, we couldn’t recomend him enough! When we have shown pictures to friends and family they have all said “we wish we had been able to have Neil as the Photographer at our Wedding!”
Thank you Neil!
I’ve worked with Neil for a few years now as part of Brownsea Open Air Theatre, and every year he gets even better, if such a thing were possible. Neil has a habit of apologizing for being a nuisance with the camera, but honestly, I hardly noticed he was there! And then some of the photos he comes out with baffle me, because he must have been right in front of me.
He has a perfect sense of timing, great personality, not to mention a very professional work ethic. I look forward to many years of working with Neil and seeing the quality that he produces.
Neil took some did a couple of photo shoots for my daughter Jordan for photo’s that we needed to send off to a modelling agent,
He was very professional and accommodating, he worked really hard and had some fabulous ideas of different looks for Jordan.
The photo’s that Neil produced were first class and he managed to capture the very essence of Jordan and we were able to send them off to the agent to fulfil what the agent was asking for.
I would highly recommend Neil for any photographic work that anyone maybe considering, he always delivers and is very easy to work with and makes everyone feel very comfortable,
Thank you Neil for everything you did for us we really appreciate it. 😉
It’s hard to write about Neil Goridge without coming across as gushing, or way, way, way over the top about how fantastic a photographer he is. But it’s all absolutely 100% true.
This year Brownsea Open Air Theatre’s production of ’The Tempest’ sold out before its opening night and that in no small part is down to Neil Goridge. His publicity photography was stunning, distinct and eye-catching, and the number of incredible comments (including from the Royal Shakespeare Company) about the standard, attention to detail and quality of the photography reflects the genius that is Neil Goridge. And if being uber-talented wasn’t enough, it turns out he’s one of the nicest, most-likable and hardworking people on the planet.
But don’t take my word for it, just look at Neil’s body of work – a picture paints a thousand words…
