SOME NICE THINGS PEOPLE HAVE SAID:
Creative Director / Owner of BigfrankMedia
A consummate professional, I have no hesitation to recommend Stephen for his incredible work in all fields of photography. He is a perfectionist in every detail of his work, able to adapt very quickly without ever compromising the brief. Ive always been impressed with his ability to create sophisticated, playful yet clean imagery in both architecture and portraiture whilst remaining one of the UK's prominent beauty photographers. I have worked with Stephen over many years and would so again without a second thought.
Personal Branding and Impact Consultant
Stephen was extremely professional and engaging. He intuitively gained a real sense of who I am and what I wanted to achieve through my photo's for my business website. Subsequently, I have received some great feedback! I would highly recommend working with Stephen.

Stephen is that rare bred of photographer who manages to combine high level technical skill with psychological sophistication: he understands the complexities of the emotional experience of being photographed and works with you to help you enjoy the experience and gain confidence.

Stephen is one of the most talented and charming photographers in the industry. He puts everyone at ease. He is a master of light and getting the best out of people! He is also a joy to have around.
Stephen is a true visionary. Having certain expectation working with him on photoshoots, I am always amazed by the fact that the photographs will always go that little bit beyond what I had imagined. He is methodical yet spontaneous and can see things through his camera lens that us mere mortals can only dream of. The results are art, not just photographs.
It’s always pleasure and honour to work with Stephen Perry. He is very calm, organised, and knows what he does and wants from his every assignment. He has many of years experience in photographic business and working with him is delight as you get to learn, know, and understand how and why he does his assignments in that manner. I always look forward to work with Stephen as he guides and explains to you in his sweet and humble way.
I always look forward working with Stephen.
I have been photographed countless times by Stephen, in many styles, locations, countries.....for video, workshops, allsorts. Every time is truly amazing and always a pleasure. He is a true artist and genius! As well as being a super friendly, relaxed, intelligent, kind, down to earth man. Photo shoots are always fun and a breeze, however Stephen always works so hard, over and above to ensure he gets everything just perfect. He is a total perfectionist in his photography and the results, but it doesn't comes across in his personality, he is not a boring anal photographer! But his experience means he IS actually being anal, but it doesn't show if that makes sense! :D
The results always speak for themselves and are by no means accidental! Every little detail has involved a thought process, but he is such a natural that being photographed by him is just the easiest thing ever. There is nothing he cannot photograph to an outstanding standard, consistently. His images are not "one-off's", they are all amazing!
I have also worked on Photography training courses with Stephen, where he teaches other photographers. There is nothing Stephen doesn't know about photography, lighting and shooting. He is so inspirational, passionate and full of an infectious energy....it was great to see the photographers (students) looking genuinely enlightened, enthusiastic and extremely happy!
Stephen has a brilliant way with people, like you have known him for years and absolutely genuine.
Very highly recommended for absolutely everything photographic.....a creative genius!
