“Nicola has a very special talent for telling real stories through her photos and so it was natural that we use her to gather stories and photos of the beneficiaries of our work. The work she produced for us was excellent and has since been used in a range of fundraising and awareness raising campaigns with much success. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nicola Bailey Photography – particularly for documentary style work”.

David Britton, Director of Public Affairs, The Fred Hollows Foundation

” Nicola’s approach is professional and friendly and her warm earthy nature easily gains the confidence of everyone involved in the project being undertaken. Her courteous manner is applied to all aspects of the day and her communication with all parties is exceptional with her compassionate nature instantly putting the models at ease. This is definitely reflected in the final results of both the circumstance and the photos.

Nicola is able to follow the brief of the day and give what is needed and much more. The outcome is creative, artistic and infinitely usable photos that are proudly displayed on both our online shop and advertising.  Nicola is able to define the imagery to suit the difference between shop and advert, intuitively applying direction so we have inventive quality results that suit the needs of our business and we are proud to display.

Working with Nicola is a treat every time. She has a unique quality to her method and skill that consistently captures something special in her subject, be it person or product.”

“I loved working with Nicola and was wowed by the photos she took. She saw and captured the essence of my stage persona before I had even fully realised it myself, despite working within a very limited time frame. Through her lens she found the combination of fragility and feistiness that has since become Ember Flame’s trademark. Nicola is a very warm, compassionate and creative person, and this shows in the photos she takes. She has a remarkable ability to see the unique beauty in every person and situation, hence I’m looking forward to our next photo shoot! I would recommend Nicola to anyone, she is a photographer of huge talent, vision and heart”.

“I received the cd of photos today and have to say that I am very pleased and impressed with your work. I know that we may not have been the easiest clients to work with but we are so pleased with the photos.  I must admit I have had a few moments over the last few days worrying about how they will all come out – now I can sleep as I know that we have the photos that we wanted. There is always that doubt in your mind about how we will look and did we get photos of everyone that we wanted. The candid shots are amazing and I know that the couple shots that you got of guests will be welcomed by the people that we will share them with.

Thank you so much for all your help and I will definatly refer you to people for weddings, parties and anything else in between.”
