"We hired Ben for our wedding and son's naming ceremony. His approach was professional and friendly. He arrived at the venue early and had time to find the best place to take photos. His presence during the actual ceremony was discrete meaning he didn't obscure the guest's view or distract them by constantly moving. His pictures captured the day perfectly picking up some of the smaller details that we missed.
We are extremely pleased with the results and won't hesitate to use Ben again."
Jim and Emily, Ealing
"We enjoyed the fact that we were able to give direction and input into the shoot and by allowing this our personalities shone through rather than the photos appearing too posed. We had a really fun time and loved improvising the shots. In the end I think that our enjoyment of the afternoon shows through in the photos.
Thanks for encouraging us to be ourselves, by getting the ball rolling with some useful suggestions and by understanding our brief. You understood the type of vibe we were after, the suggestion of bringing music along really relaxed the atmosphere and made us feel more at ease. Also, providing us with all the digital copies meant we could share our favourite shots with friends and family."
Mei-yun, South London
"I was very pleased with my experience working with Ben. I was traveling to London for the first time and wanted to have some photos that captured my visit. Ben and I worked the arrangements entirely via e-mail. He was very prompt and effortless to work with...."
Lance King, North Carolina, U.S.A.
"You were really professional, straight down to business, with a really good eye for a good photo opportunity. You really knew how to make good use of the conditions available, using your photo equipment to best advantage.
You used great rapport to get me to give my best to the camera - you also showed me the results so I could give feedback as we were going along. I was really happy with the results, and they're just the kind of natural image of myself I've been looking for, for years..."
"Ben / Rainbow consulting photography services
Very punctual and good communication.
Photos as requested.
"I liked the variety of shots and way Ben used his initiative to work in the client's product / branding where possible.
He has set up some good clean shots in a mid-construction development. Never easy.
As a result I have client satisfaction and the ability to use the shots for multiple purposes (newsletters, external PR etc)"
Paul Myerscough, Strategic Communications
"We hired Ben for a full day corporate photography shoot.
Ben was efficient and friendly, and helped to bring out people's personalities in their photographs, which is no easy task."
Mithu Mukherjee, PR Manager, SAGE
"I felt very comfortable shooting with Ben.
He helped by listening to what I wanted to achieve and helped with directions, thank you.
I am left with some natural, beautiful pictures."
"Relaxed and informal atmosphere, not at all stressful. You were very patient and easy to work with. Altogether a great experience.
For the first time ever, I have some shots that I really like!"
"Normally I hate having my photograph taken. But the photo-shoot with Ben was great. He was so calm and easy-going, I felt totally at ease in front of the camera. Not only did I have good time during the shoot, I finally have some decent photographs of myself that I would be proud to show to anyone!
I would have no hesitation in recommending Rainbow Consulting to anyone who wants an efficient and professional service."
Just thought you should know that I'm really pleased with the job you did.
" We liked the fact that you were happy to come to our home to take the photos as it made it much more convenient with the baby and it was much more relaxed being in our home.
You helped us achieve our aims by being very informal and easy going, giving advice as to what type of shots would work well/what backgrounds looked best/what areas of the house and gardens had the most favourable light to achieve the best pictures.
We've been really pleased with the fact that we could have a CD at the end of the shoot with all images taken so that we can pick and choose the ones we'd like to get printed at our own pace. We're delighted with many of the shots - it'll be difficult to pick just one to be at the centre of our mantelpiece!! "
" It was your no nonsense, business-like approach to the booking and of course being available at such short notice. It was really quite a surprise that you could fit us in when you did.
It is always helpful to our members to be able to "see" who they are communicating with on such a regular basis and I am sure that the new photos will stand us in good stead in the future. We particularly liked the outdoor shots because they were much "kinder" to us...
..we have some good staff photos available to us to use and add to the library of photos and also knowing that we have a reliable photographer who could be called upon in the future."
Liz, Administration Manager
"The day of the shoot with rainbowconsulting was both professional and productive. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed enabling the shoot to run smoothly producing the best shots.
With the shots gained I have been able to update my portfolio. Updating my portfolio has enabled me to secure several editorial jobs."
"To update my portfolio and to register with agencies for commercial and advertising work I required new photographs. I needed the pictures to be of a high standard and a certain degree of flexibility.
Fortunately, I stumbled across rainbow consulting - and was impressed by the work carried out and professionalism in which it was executed.
I was made to feel relaxed and comfortable. Shooting did not start until everything was in place and I was pleased with the outcome.
I will certainly use rainbow consulting again."
"Ben gave me the kind of calm, hassle-free service that was just what I was needed from my photographer. It was freezing cold when we took the shots, but he had some ideal locations in inner London all planned out ahead of time, so we did not waste any time getting where we wanted to be.
At the time I did not know how well they were going to turn out, only later did I realise that he had managed to get the look I wanted just right. I was thrilled with the pictures, and have used several of them since. Both my publicist here in the UK, and in the States, were bowled over by the results.
Since the shoot, Rainbow Consulting has provided invaluable after-sales service, helping me out with all sorts of tricky details, like emailing me back-up copies of the images, burning copies onto CDs for me, providing high resolution images when I needed them for a specific business solution - and always with the same professionalism, versatility and laid-back charm that Ben brought to the original shoot. Thank you Rainbow Consulting !"
Hugh, Journalist and Writer
" I just wanted to write you a quick note to say 'thanks' for the great job you did on our 'graduation' photos.
From the moment I contacted you I was pleased with your professional manner and the ease with which we were able to set up arrangements for the day and your flexibility in dealing with some of my special requests. I also really appreciated your committment to getting the best possible shots both in the garden and the library.
We are very happy with the photos and I think we have a really good shot of each of the 5 main 'targets' we were after."
Margot, Graduate of Economics
"Reporting on an underground music scene means that photographers have to be able to deal with unusual places and characters. Many of the subjects are not used to being photographed and the ability to establish a rapport is essential.
I work with Rainbow Consulting because I am confident that they will be able to handle any type of situation. "
"Just a quick note to thank you for the excellent job you did for our Euro 2004 T-Mobile campaign. It was a relief to work with someone highly professional that just got the job done at a reasonable price. We are delighted with the results.
The photos that you took have been covered in lots of consumer mags. Thanks again and look forward to working with you again soon."
Karen, Senior Account/Group Director
