"I had the pleasure of working with Michael on the production of a TV ad for a client who had very high expectations and a very tight budget.
Michael's level of professionalism was very impressive and his ability to take direction was easily matched by his ability to add a creative touch at the right moment to elevate the level of production.
This was more than evident in the final ad which was complimented by an excellent selection of still shots on the day.
Michael's ability to work seamlessly between moving image and stills photography made what could have been a very difficult day look easy. I have no hesitation in recommending him for any jobs requiring a camera with any level of creativity and look forward to working with him again in the future."

Acclaimed artist Wolfgang Buttress, designed and installed this beautiful sculpture called Rise, at the junction of Broadway and Westlink in Belfast. He had seen some of my photographs of the sculpture online and asked me if I could shoot it from the air. So, I hired a helicopter and hanging out the back doors of an R44 along with Richard Watson, we shot and filmed this amazing creation on a freezing cold evening in October 2011.
I have trained with Ian at DW Sports Gym on Boucher Road, Belfast. He is serious about his body building and fitness and enjoys sharing his experience and knowledge with his clients. When he asked me to help him promote his business including producing a short promotional film, I jumped at the chance!
"I asked Michael to help me promote my business. He set to work on a new company logo, photo shoot, website, business card and promotional video.
He was meticulous, worked quickly and took any stress away from myself. I couldn't have been happier with the result.
Michael is a total professional who knows his trade inside and out. I wouldn't hesitate to use his services again and can't recommend him highly enough."
