What clients say about Paul Upward Photography

“We recently engaged Paul to create a photo suite of bottle images of our range of Organic Levin Wines.  Paul was a delight to work with, he has excellent attention to detail with a great creative eye.  Paul provided personalised, professional photography, seamless digital processing that delivered improved look and feel of our range of wines on our website and all of our marketing collateral. “

“It was a pleasure to collaborate with Paul, he is definitely one of the key people who contributed to the success of our event.

Since the first time I contacted him, he was always available and ready to meet our needs. I would definitely work with him again!”

 “Since winning our first RHS Gold Medal and People’s Choice Award in 2007 we have always used Paul Upward as our go to photographer.

In 2017 we returned to RHS Hampton and won an RHS Gold Medal, RHS People’s Choice Award and the highly converted RHS Best in Show. Paul formed a key part of our show garden team and caught the energy and excitement of our Wild Garden throughout the media and press day at the show. Paul has a great way with people and an ability to catch very natural moments in time”

Adam WhiteDirector, Davies White Landscape Architects

“I was recommended Paul by a business associate and am delighted with the introduction which has given us some of the best marketing images we have had in a while. The brief was to be present but invisible to capture as much of the natural emotion, highs and lows of the day. 

Paul was fantastic, engaging, and adaptable. His work really allowed the students to shine through. High quality images, some fantastic shots captured and a delight from start to finish for everyone he came into contact with. Great communication throughout. He followed the brief of the event to the letter and I would not hesitate to recommend him.”

Kuljit RaheluHeadteacher, Hornsey School for Girls

“Paul’s skill is in being able to understand our needs, requirements, machine applications, and then apply his creative skill to capture dynamic images that inspire imagination whilst illustrating the machines attributes in a striking way.

Offering various ways and options to capture images that meet the brief, Paul is super creative, hard working and ensures that we are satisfied with the images as the shoot progresses”.

Tim YatesBusiness Development Manager, Kubota (U.K.) Limited

“We have used Paul Upward Photography to get some shots of people enjoying the Country Parks as well as landscapes for our new website and social media channels.  Paul took our brief and delivered what we were looking for, interacting professionally with families and suggesting appropriate photos for our content.  We will continue to work with Paul when we need additional photos in the future.”

” Paul’s brief was to make the process of land restoration look interesting and not just about muck and big machinery! The human side to our business that he captured well and now adorns our website provides a good contrast to those of our competitors.”

“Paul did a fantastic job working under busy, noisy race conditions at our club champs. He interacted well with the swimmers to put them at ease, whilst being unobtrusive when needed. Great results!”

Hayley LewisChesham Swimming Club

“Paul was simply fantastic from start to finish. Before the event Paul wants to share your vision and so will go over everything you wish to receive from his photography for the occasion. He’s incredibly diligent, arrives early – and generously offers to stay longer if you require – and goes above and beyond to deliver the expectations you agree on. I had so many positive comments about Paul from friends at our 21st – more than anything, that he feels like he’s one among the occasion. He doesn’t stand out, he blends in, has fun with you and makes the memories even better whilst capturing them. Thank you so much Paul, we would recommend you time and time again!”

“Over a four month period Paul was tasked with revealing the diversity, wildness and beauty of Thamesmead’s landscape for Peabody as part of our 30 year project to create London’s New Town.  Thamesmead has incredible landscape of parks, gardens, canals and lakes that is largely unknown in London. Through familiarising himself with the estate, engaging with local residents and Peabody colleagues, and with an clear passion for landscape photography,  Paul has managed to capture its diversity and beauty. 

Throughout this large and complex photography commission, Paul managed his time effectively, kept to budget, organised monthly update team meetings and regularly sent through images as the project progressed, so we knew the photos he was taking were exactly what we wanted..

We now have a series of striking images that we can use to talk about Thamesmead as a place with a strong identity and great future.”

Phil AskewDirector Landscape & Placemaking, Peabody

“We have used Paul multiple times for photography, including several client projects, and he has always exceeded our expectations. Paul translated our ideas perfectly, and is incredibly flexible, especially within the constraints of social media photography.”

Matt HackettDirector, The Wonky Agency

“Paul came to our home and conducted an amazing family photo shoot. He was extremely professional and wonderful with the kids. I would highly recommend him and the final product was fantastic.”

“I hate having my picture taken but knew I needed to update my headshots on my business social media profiles.  Working with Paul was really easy.  His professionalism and ability to make me feel relaxed in front of camera meant that the ordeal I was expecting turned out to be fun and actually pain-free!  Thank you Paul, I am very happy with the results and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you.”
