“Daniel shot my alternative 1920s hen do. He really understood the brief and the finish on the photographs that he has produced is really in keeping with the 1920s theme. He put everyone at ease and facilitated the groups creativity for various amusing posed shots. I am more than pleased with the results. Thank you, Daniel.”

Professional Through & Through
“Having been lucky enough to work with Daniel Hodson on two photo shoots now I have seen the diversity of his talents and his keen eye for the perfect finished article. Daniel sought out a perfect location, time of day, ideal attire and every other detail you could imagine for both of my extremely different circumstances. He went through every stage of the process with me explaining why he was suggesting his opinions but also took on board the opinions of myself and all others involved. His level of communication was perfect and he delivered excellent photographs. After the shoot itself Daniel ran by me his choices of filters and editing to make sure we had the same artistic vision and was happy to edit small details on top of that. Daniel's photos speak for themselves, he is a professional through and through and I very much look forward to working with him again.”

He didn't disappoint!
“Daniel made my wife and I feel completely at ease with his knowledge of his craft prior to our wedding day. He talked us through all the available options, created an itinerary for the day and left us secure in the knowledge that our big day will be remembered forever. He arrived a day early to prepare, take his readings, run us through the plan one more time to make sure we were happy and as the big day came, he didn\'t disappoint. He took all the shots he need through the ceremony without being obtrusive and asserted himself commendably, gathering all the appropriate guests at the right time for the official shots without delay. All in all, I must say Daniel was a pleasure to have at our wedding and, what's more, the photo's turned out better than we could have ever hoped. Thank you Daniel.”

A Giant Thank you.
“As a group of creative artists with a certain and particular aestheticism in mind, We thought it was not going to be an easy task for a photographer to be able to encapsulate everything we wanted into the photos. However, Daniel made our fairly abstract ideas into a reality in a seamless and enjoyable way.\r\n\r\nHe was extremely open to any ideas and suggestions that we all had, and also was very sure to listen to what we wanted.?It was refreshing to work with someone so excited and committed to their craft both professionally and creatively, he worked with us from the initial planning of ideas, right through to putting those ideas into practice.\r\nDaniel was knowledgeable and competent, giving us access to the widest variety of styles and methods to create the shots we wanted, such as various lightings, positioning, exposures; all of which he would thoroughly explain to us, to ensure we were all most informed on his artistry and direction.\r\n\r\nDriven by his enthusiasm, Daniel was prepared to work in possibly undesirable and difficult conditions, both in terms of lighting and setting, as well as, throughout extended periods of time.\r\nDaniel is uncompromising in his art form, effortless to work with, easy to share and create ideas with, and manages all of this in a very enjoyable, fun and humorous atmosphere, which we have found produces the best work.\r\n\r\nA giant thank you to Daniel from all of us and we would definitely work with him again in the future for any of our photographic needs!”

“Daniel was very professional in his approach to my shoot. We worked together to plan which locations would be good to represent me in a fun and fresh way to help promote myself as a freelance presenter. After a few initial shots getting me used to the camera, Daniel took the time to relax me into the session and ensured every photo counted! The fantastic images he took now sit proudly on my web-page. I will definitely be using Daniels service again in the future! Cheers Daniel!”

“I worked with Daniel when the band I front were in need of an innovative and creative photographer who could capture our take on Panda Punk, a genre coined by The Benwahs, and fully express the attitude and vision of our music. Daniel went well beyond the bounds of photographer, setting up locations and organising both hair and make up and costume for the shoot. His ideas were unique to our selling point and innovative in their execution.?Daniel is extremely personable, inviting the band and crew into his home, putting us at ease enabling us to achieve a creative representation of our sound and cooking us dinner! I strongly recommend using Daniel Hodson Photography for any shoot demanding only the best results.”

High Spirits & Enthusiasm
“My promotional shoot, with Daniel was arranged to promote my new EP launch. It was more than just a photo shoot, we walked four miles through mud and brambles, Daniel was carrying heavy photography gear yet he still maintained high spirits and enthusiasm and this is reflected in the excellent photos we had at the end of the session.”
- Thomas Ward
“For my project, I needed a photographer to collaborate with to produce a photo-shoot in a studio for my university styling project. When I arrived at the studio with my model, Daniel was already there, having set up the lighting how I’d explained in my concept. I found this very helpful, as it allowed me more time to organise my model and set design. Daniel offered a great deal of support, while giving his creative opinion with the layout of my props and set design. I was really impressed with this, as it helped me a lot. It was good to have another point of view and a few different ideas flying around the studio and I think this enhanced the final stills. After the photo-shoot, Daniel edited my chosen images promptly and to a high standard, returning them well within the deadline set.”

Certainly Use Again!
“Working with Daniel was a pleasure from beginning to end, he was tremendously well prepared for all meetings that took place, and was committed to obtaining the best possible results by being open to our ideas and themes, and also providing many of his own, which meant for a much more structured, and successful shoot. Daniel was punctual throughout, arriving on time and ready for both shoots, and for the location scout, which made us all feel considerably more at ease in front of the camera. Clearly very talented at his art, Daniel was excellent at giving us direction, regardless of our inexperience, and we were amazed at the quality of the end product, and indeed the speed at which the photos were turned round, making it easy for us to use them as part of a press release. We would definitely recommend Daniel to anyone looking for a photographer, and we will certainly be using him again.”
“Daniel is a creative and reliable photographer that has taken photographs at our Eat It Up Promotions events. He is very professional and is excellent with his time management helping to produce a brilliant set of images. I would have no problems with using Daniel again for other services I may need him for an absolute pleasure to work with. Definitely recommended to anyone looking for a photographer.”
