'We used Candid Pictures to provide the launch photography for the Stannp Postcard App. Owner and lead photographer, Paul Stallard was a delight to work with and the Lacock Abbey photoshoot provided bright, engaging images that were run in the Sunday Sun, Sunday Times Travel Magazine and across a host of opinion forming tech blog pages. We wouldn't hesitate to use Candid Pictures again'.

I have not the slightest hesitation in recommending him in this field of work.

Secret Agent Marketing hired Candid Pictures to take photographs at a public event for a major high street brand. We found Paul to be prompt and courteous. He immediately understood the brief, went to work, and delivered the first images within hours for us to use in our social media campaign. Print-quality shots followed soon after. It goes without saying that the photographs were excellent. We would not hesitate to recommend the services of Candid Pictures, and look forward to working with Paul again.
Peter Davison, Secret Agent Marketing

“Paul is very professional and easy to work with, I would be delighted to recommend his work”
Isabel Duckworth BDO Accountants Marketing and Business Development Manager

“I’ve worked with Paul for a number of years and I know I’ve got no need to worry if he’s handling a shoot for me. Whatever the circumstances, I know the quality of the pictures I’ll get back will always be outstanding. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve contacted him about last-minute jobs, photo-shoots that require him to do a lot of travelling, or assignments which I’ve been worried, wouldn’t be particularly visually interesting. But, no matter how difficult the brief I’ve given him might be, he’s always delivered and goes out of his way to make sure you get the best possible results. And, being a former press photographer, he not only knows instinctively which photos will or won’t work, he also understands the importance of hitting deadlines if we need to get a story and picture out quickly. Every job he’s done for me has been absolutely first-class, whatever the style of shot I’ve needed. I’d have no hesitation in recommending him.”
Andrew Gray, media co-ordinator, Aster Group

Paul has done all our promotional photography for the last 14 years including work for our reception galleries, our brochures and our website. I have always found him exceptionally approachable and when he comes into the practice he does so with the minimal fuss and causes no disruption. The finished images are always promptly supplied and I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
Mike Hollywood, The George Veterinary Group, Malmesbury

“Punctual, flexible, helpful and great results!
