We were introduced to Richard through the Best of Oswestry and have enjoyed working with such a consumate professional who is personable and very easy to work with. He produced some great shots of our event with Phil Jupitus and for our Best Of photo shoot. Creative, with a great eye, we highly recommend him.

We asked Richard to take some photos for us here at The Venue . The staff were a little nervous about taking part in the photo shoot, however Richard made them at ease, and they totally enjoyed the whole experience. We had a great morning. Thank you.

I asked Stonehouse Photographic to take some product shots for use on a website I am having designed. Richard did a fantastic job and has really improved the overall look of the site, with professional photos making a great contribution to its style and finish. The quote was really reasonable, offering excellent value for money as the range of photos Richard took will ensure that they are useful not only for the website but also other promotional material. Both Richard and Laura are a pleasure to deal with and the job was done quickly and efficiently. I would certainly recommend them.

I asked Richard to photograph the Shropgeek Revolution event I ran in September 2010. He did an amazing job on the night. He photographed the entire evening, most of the time without people noticing. He was discreet and considerate to the attendees and the results were phenomenal. Richard is an extremely talented and professional photographer. He was able to capture the evening in fantastic style, and I couldn't have been happier with the final photographs. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing photography.

In October 2010, said about Stonehouse Photographic

I heard about Richard through thebestof, and was prompted to look at his online portfolio because of his impressive qualifications and outstanding credentials. Richard was very professional in the exploratory meeting that we had, listened to our requirements and provided creative suggestions based on the briefing. The costings he gave were within the range we were expecting. Ultimately, we chose to use Richard as we needed someone who would produce work that would reflect our company’s uncompromisingly high standards. On the shoots, Richard was always on time, organised, courteous and friendly. On the social event he covered for us he was as unobtrusive as was possible, and a lot of the time we were unaware he was working. I could not have been more pleased with the images he produced which exude style and quality and are a class above normal professional photographer’s. The cost was realistic which made his services exceptional value for money. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Richard to the highest degree.
