Testimonials

Stepnell have been working with Beth for nearly 5 years now, on our completed construction project shoots, professional headshots, PR photos, capturing our works in action and our people.
She always makes our work look outstanding, which is a true art given a lot of that work is often on muddy construction sites with the British weather not on our side. Whatever challenge we throw at her the results are bright, bold, creative and striking.
It is always an absolute pleasure to work with Beth, not only is she the best photographer ever, but also a completely wonderful person.

Gemma Meekings, Marketing Manager- Stepnell
My business 1284 Ltd provides chartered public relations for a host of public and private organisations throughout the East Midlands. I have worked with Beth for 8 years now. She is our go-to photographer and we always recommend to new clients that they get Beth in to do a shoot. It forms the basis of all their comms that follow. All of our clients are delighted with Beth's work.
George Oliver, 1284 Director
I've worked with Beth for over seven years now. As a professional photographer, Beth has consistently exceeded my expectations at multiple large and important events to smaller specific project and shoots . Her keen eye for detail and ability to capture the essence of every moment is truly remarkable. Not only is Beth incredibly talented behind the lens, but she also brings a warm and friendly demeanour that puts everyone at ease. Her professionalism and dedication to her craft shine through in every photograph she takes. Beth takes the time to understand my brief and delivers for me regardless of the environment.
Gerarde Manley, LLEP Careers Hub Lead- Strategic
Beth has worked on several case study images for us over the years. She has also photographed a number of our business events. She is always enthusiastic and professional and has a great gift of putting people at ease, often who don’t want to be photographed. Her images always meet the brief and she guides without being pushy, adding her own creativity in whatever situation we throw at her. I love working with her and hope we can work together again very soon.

Kalpna Mistry, Marketing and Communications Executive
Beth and I have worked together for various clients, on various campaigns and for specific projects. To date we have worked on B2B content, event content, product led and corporate headshots. I turn to Beth when I am leading a content project because I trust her entirely. Her work is detailed and beautiful. Beth handles challenges with care and grace, she's a great communicator, and a lovely energy to be around on shoot day.
Kelly Joanne, Freelance Brand and Marketing Consultant
Beth responds extremely well to a brief and gets to the essentials of the job. She has created some great work for us in The National Forest, often in unusual circumstances. Whether it’s capturing youngsters on a bat hunt at dusk, moth gathering in the dark with a ridiculously bright contrasting light, or getting drenched - completely drenched - crawling in the mud at one of our woodland events, Beth goes the extra mile to get the shot you need!
Carol Rowntree Jones, Media Relations Officer, The National Forest Company
We've been commissioning photography from Beth for over three years. We have been impressed with the consistent high quality Imagery. Recently, Beth was part of our Cathedral Quarter Photographic Team which covered the re interment of King Richard the 3RD, supplying pictures to news media organisations both nationally and internationally. Beth's pictures were also used in the recently published book on the subject. She covers a broad spectrum of work for us, from news, features and studio work to festivals and live music events. We will continue to work with Beth as we know we can rely on her to come back with great photographs, every time.
Ian Davis, Media and Communications, Leicester City Council
We have used Beth for a couple of years to photograph our Christmas parties. Beth is great to work with, very professional and friendly. Beth gets great shots of the venue and also engages with guests to achieve fantastic ‘action shots’! We would happily recommend Beth for any of our corporate events held at the centre.
Teresa Maguire, Head of Events, National Space Centre
Beth has a talent for bringing people's personality out in her photographs. She is excellent at building a rapport with the subject matter and making them feel at ease for the shoot. Coupled with her ability to think creatively and improvise when needed, she always produces good work for us.
Gary Moss Editor AB, [award -winning internal communications agency]
Beth is a brilliant photographer to work with – not only because she takes beautiful pictures, but also because she’s always prepared to spend time finding out about the people we interview in order to get the best photograph possible to tell their story. When Beth’s taking a pic for our front cover, we know it’s going to be good; they’re always striking, and draw the reader in. Plus, she’s very lovely, too. Basically, Beth is ace!
Editor Gemma Peplow, More magazine
I have known Beth for many years and have been impressed not only by her great photos,but also her professionalism .She has always been a delight to work with, photographing our cakes and taking portraits at Fiona Cairns Ltd many times.
Fiona Cairns
Here at the LLEP we commissioned Beth to visit a number of companies across Leicester and Leicestershire to create a whole new bank of business images for our image library. Not only is she really amenable and easy to work with, but she takes fantastic pictures as well! We particularly liked the unusual angles and the funky in-situ shots which were lively, vibrant and have really boosted our presentations, on-line and marketing materials.
Sally Kowal, LLEP Communications Manager
I worked with Beth on the Leicester Mercury’s ‘A Taste of Leicestershire and Rutland’ cookbook. Beth’s creativity, dedication, often having to work out of hours, and passion for her art was clearly evident throughout the project. Beth brought the recipes to life with a real flair, and was an integral part of making this a successful publication, whilst also being flexible to the different requirements of everyone involved; she was an absolute pleasure to work with, I look forward to collaborating with her again soon.
Dean Eldredge, Communications Director, Soar Media Ltd
Beth has been our photographer of choice for a few years now. We used her not only for our personnel profiles but also at events we host. Beth has the knack of putting her subjects at ease and making them feel comfortable when having their profiles taken, as well as capturing them at their best – this really makes a difference. Not only is Beth a great photographer but very flexible. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her.
Michelle Newman, Office Manager, Spearing Waite LLP
Beth has consistently shown professionalism and initiative in her work. As a sub-editor, working on a variety of glossy magazine publications throughout the year, it's always easier to work with good quality photography, and Beth's work always stands out on the page.
Alex Bennett, Leicestershire and Rutland Life magazine
Beth is a very talented photographer. As well as being extremely creative, she has the ability to interpret requirements effectively and offer honest, expert advice. She has a very keen eye for detail and a fantastic ability to make human subjects feel at ease in front of the camera. On top of all this, Beth is a lovely person and a pleasure to work with.
Tim Webster, Marketing Manager, Danaher & Walsh
Beth's photographs are vibrant, fun and capture the personalities of the people involved – not an easy task!
She's a consummate professional, easy to work with and always has creative ideas that make any assignment stand out

Sian Brewis, De Montfort University
Beth is not just a fantastic photographer - she is a fabulous, creative person and a dream to work with. When editing Leicestershire and Rutland Life, she was my go to snapper - a true professional who can be relied upon to deliver the perfect shot whatever the brief.
Jennie Findley, Fashion Editor
As a former Leicester Mercury Features Editor, and a Leicestershire and Rutland Life journalist, I have worked with photographers for many years. It is rare to come across a photographer who has a talent both for producing superb photographs and for relating to her subject(s). Beth is a perfectionist, so is prepared to take endless trouble to produce work which meets her own very high standards. She genuinely loves her job and is an enthusiast too. This is partly the reason why people warm to her, and why she achieves such good results.
She is also prepared to discuss pictures in relation to text and layout and is always helpful and co-operative. She sticks to her briefing, but also adds her own inspiration to any job she is asked to do: I have never known her bring back disappointing work and she is a joy to have as a colleague.
