I worked with Barbara on new website shots I required. It was important for me for Barbara to understand my brand and my product and she took the time to have a couple of free face to face consultations with me so she could get a thorough idea of what I wanted to achieve. The shots I have chosen did not disappoint. Barbara's professionalism, along with friendliness and knowledge of her trade, make for an outstanding photographer. Thank you Barbara.
I approached Barbara Leatham Photography for the restoration of two family photographs dating from the 1880s. The photographs had suffered from many decades of poor storage and general neglect. As well as the obvious tears and creases, the emulsion was damaged and thinned through abrasion and ware. I was not convinced that they could be satisfactorily salvaged at all.
Barbara Leatham was, however, confident that the photographs could be restored; so I entrusted them to her care. Barbara provided me with an up-front quote, an impressive turn-around time, and kept me informed of progress with regular updates.
The end results were nothing short of amazing! Barbara successfully restored both images, even though one required not insignificant reconstruction. The results were so sharp and of such high quality that I was able to have prints produced in 10"x8" size.
In short, I can not recommend Barbara Leatham Photography highly enough. I shall certainly be entrusting Barbara with the restoration of further photographs in the near future. It's so wonderful that these old family photographs which I had considered to be damaged beyond repair have been restored to be treasured by future generations of my family. Thank you Barbara.
Barbara is a photographer who is genuinely passionate about her work and who always goes the extra mile to ensure that her customers feel special and valued. I have used Barbara for both commercial and family photography and have been so impressed, and humbled, by the time she has dedicated pre and post shoot as well as on the day itself. She really looks after you and her pride in her work is obvious. The entire journey is a memorable experience. Barbara is absolutely brilliant at relaxing nerves and has an instinct for what will work; she will be honest in her opinions and always kind and gentle. She has a great sense of fun and sees opportunities you may never have thought of. I can wholeheartedly recommend Barbara to anyone looking for a down to earth and genuine photographer.
Barbara has the ability to make her subjects enjoy the whole process and as a result is able to capture the true essence of the person. Her generously shared insight and attention to detail were fantastic and her natural sense of fun makes the process a joy for even the most nervous subject. A session with Barbara will raise your spirits and your confidence. Thank you Barbara.
We've just had another fantastic shoot with Barbara! Our very tall order was a photo for Grandma's 70th birthday of the 5 grandchildren. Their ages range from 18 to 3 with a very self-conscious 16 year old.
Barbara was amazing with them - in the space of an hour, she got over 100 great usable shots.
She has the most wonderful talent and her style is so relaxed and timeless!
I cannot recommend her enough and am already planning the next shoot...
WOW, what more can I say, or we....the Team here at Big Yellow Marketing Communications. We had a fabulous afternoon with Barbara, taking snap shots of the team, head shots and most importantly, capturing us all having fun, being ourselves and looking natural. Thank you Barbara for spending some quality time with us and we can't wait to see the images (which will be used on our website) soon.
Many thanks to Barbara Leatham Photography for yesterdays one-on-one training day. I wanted to increase my confidence in shooting people since much of my experience is in shooting interiors. She tailored the day to exactly what I was looking for and even went to the trouble of organising not one but two models for practical teaching. Her ability to make the subject relaxed and to capture their true character is the best I've ever seen.
I could not recommend her enough, she is throughly professional and explains things in a way you understand and at your pace, with no questions left unanswered. Lots of tips and tricks to take on board.
Thank you again Babs, looking forward to processing the shots we took... results to follow!
I booked a family photo shoot with Barbara after looking at her portfolio online. I instantly fell in love with her photography style. I'm not confident in front of a camera and trying to get a picture of my whole family including our dogs is not an easy task. Barbara sat down with us before our lifestyle shoot and got to know us, this was a great way for my children to relax with her before we headed off to the woods for our shoot. In the woods she really captured my children's character's, my sons cheeky energy and my daughters love for climbing. Playing hide and seek and capturing the fun of a family. My dogs were happily off their leads for the 2 hour shoot and she captured them running around. The quality of the prints and frames are outstanding and I can wholeheartedly recommend Barbara Leatham Photography.
Had a brilliant 1-2-1 day of photography training with Barbara, cannot compliment her enough she tailored the whole day to my needs and had me taking some very good photos by the end of the day. She is very good at explaining the science behind photography without being too geeky. The time flew by very quickly and she passes on so much information... just as well I remembered by note book!
Just completed a 1-2-1 training day and I would struggle to complement highly enough! Absolutely brilliant training, tailored perfectly to my needs (which were quickly identified!). Barbara clearly understood my photographic style and tastes, listened to what I wanted to improve and quickly assessed my existing level of understanding. When combined with some brilliant academic exercises that emphasised each teaching point, results were easy to see!
A superb teacher with an amiable and adaptive approach to business. I'll be back!
