Some comments from our clients…
"I had a fantastic day with Keith on the bespoke architectural photography training course. He demystified the technical aspects of architectural photography and was hugely generous and down to earth in sharing his experience and knowledge. I would gladly recommend Northlight Images."Julie Crawford,
"We were very impressed with our training session. In one day we learnt enough to drastically improve our product images and help us maintain a professional reputation. We are very happy customers."Ellis Clarke Trains
"I enjoyed Keith's introduction to photography. While it was accessible to complete novices, I also found lots of useful hints and tips as someone who does a small amount of professional photography and is seeking to expand my portfolio. I would recommend Northlight Images for no fuss photography training solutions to suit a range of skill levels."Laura Hadland - Thirst Media
"Thank you so much for the incredibly fast turn-around today and efficient service, it has helped me meet my own deadlines and I’m really pleased with the image you guys have supplied. It has been a real pleasure."Misguided Ltd
"The team really enjoyed the training, and we all feel that we have learnt some essential tips to improve our pictures, at the very least learning to evaluate our photos on site and thinking about the story that they are telling. The format of the training worked well - with a bit of theory in the morning and practice in the afternoon. The information wasn’t too overwhelmingly technical and was pitched just right for our requirements. I would be happy to recommend the training to other sales teams."Nottingham Community Housing Assoc.
"Keith Cooper is a photographer with a great eye for a shot and we all think we are photographers until you see Keith's work. He is a good listener, has always given us what we asked for and often something better, and is well prepared using the right tools for the job - in fact he has equipment you didn't know existed. I would recommend Keith to any manufacturer looking for professional representation of their process and product."Ridgway Machines
"We’ve used Northlight’s images for our corporate brochures, press materials and exhibition stands for a number of years. Our products are incredibly small and therefore very difficult to photograph, but with the wizardry from Northlight they have brought our products to life with fantastic high resolution imagery showing levels of detail we frankly did not know existed before we started working with them. We whole heartedly recommend Northlight and we are delighted with their imagery, professionalism, value for money and levels of service."Torex Semiconductor Europe
"I was looking for a new perspective on a location that has been visited plenty of times before - Fantastic outcome and spot on, a very smooth process, quick turnaround and friendly approach. I have recommended you to my clients already who might be in touch directly. I don't often come across photographers who can make an average site stand out on a cloudy day!"Graphic Outlines Ltd - Design Agency
"We chose Keiths photograph because it depicts a Leicester scene and we are a truly local business, and to us it created a professional mood and theme in line with our work. Keith and Karen have been a pleasure to deal with, excellent service from beginning to end."Fox Associates
"You were happy to liaise with the site directly which was very helpful. It’s important we use photographers who are going to represent us professionally and it was very evident this was the case. Great pictures, very efficient and professional service."Clement windows - specialist heritage manufacturer
"Keith quickly understood the key aspirations of the design and he was able to capture the qualities of the building in his photos."Principal: Feldmann Architects
"Northlight Images were very professional throughout the shoot offering ideas of the best places and how best to maximise the shoot. They kept us informed constantly throughout the shoot, so we knew what was happening and constantly verified everything was ok, making the whole experience stress-free on our part."H.A.C Pipeline Supplies Ltd
