Here are a few things that people have said about me:
HEADSHOTS AND COMMERCIAL
"I hired Melanie for possibly one of the biggest nights of my professional life and she was just a consummate professional. She requested a site visit before the event so she could familiarise herself with the venue, lighting etc and make suggestions to the venue owner. She then requested a list of the guests and even checked them all out online in advance so she had an idea of who was who. I've worked with quite a few photographers in my time and never known such attention to detail before the event. This then translated on the night to a very relaxed event (for me) - I let Melanie get on with her job, whilst I got on with hosting. I've just been going through the pics - and I'm a fussy bugger, being a designer - and she captured the spirit of the event perfectly. I'm smiling going through the pics right now. Thank you Melanie. I will definitely rebook you again."
Sapna Pieroux, Author at her Let's Get Visible! book launch party, February 2020
"Had a lovely time working with Melanie getting some new headshots done. Anyone in the Ealing or West London area looking for Portraits, Corporate photographs or Product shots, couldn't recommend her enough!"
Sue Hutt, Elite Catering, February 2020
"Melanie is amazing and I love all the photo shoots I've done with her. I throughly recommend her to everyone."
Karen Crumpler, Owner at Journey of Genees, November 2019
"I am not someone who likes their picture taken but Melanie made the whole experience fun and enjoyable, I could not believe how quickly she took so many great and varied headshots. I can thoroughly recommend her."
Sally Ryan, Working Mums Coach, November 2019
"Melanie makes me feel super-confident. Being photographed can be daunting, but she makes the experience relaxing and fun. Having the difficult task of trying to choose the final photos due to loving so many is a great sign! She’s incredibly easy to work with and always offers loads of time, care and fresh ideas to give me exactly what I need. Thank you Melanie!"
Samantha Boffin, Voice Artist, April 2019
"It was great to collaborate with Melanie for our London Momentum Day where we offered the delegates the opportunity to have headshots taken for their business profiles during the event. Melanie was super professional and set up a sheltered area where she put the attendees at ease and got some fantastic photos for them. The feedback on the photography was fantastic!"
Erin Thomas-Wong, Mentor/Speaker, January 2019
"We commissioned Melanie on a number of projects, and we were impressed with the quality, professionalism, turnaround time and the end photographs. Melanie fitted in with the surrounding environment to ensure disruption was kept to a minimum during shoots. Melanie is incredibly organised, friendly and just a joy to work with! She has both a creative mindset and pragmatic approach which is a rare quality to find. Highly recommended Melanie for shooting any working location or business event."
Scott Young, Olivier Mythodrama, November 2018
"Melanie is a very versatile photographer with a talent for capturing the latent aesthetics in everything. She has delivered headshots for our entire UK staff, group photos, office photos and abstract elements and I've been delighted with the results. As well as the end result being fantastic, the process of working with Melanie is effortless. Her efficiency at getting the best out of people ensures that shooting days run smoothly, and her eye for opportunity ensures that even the most well-prepared shot list can be enhanced. I am so very glad to have a reliable photographer like Melanie on hand!"
Anne Woollett, Senior Marketing Executive, Tollring, November 2018
"Melanie agreed to take some portrait photographs of me for my new company website. Her studio was set up very professionally and we spend about 90 minutes while she took various photos of me in different professional poses. She was keen to ensure that I looked as smiley and natural as possible and really put me at ease by asking me about the things I love and sharing funny stories and jokes. It was clear that she was an experienced photographer and really knew how to coax the best out of me. It was a fun and enjoyable experience but the final outcome was the most important; the photos were excellent, a real likeness and she definitely caught my best side! I would highly recommend to anyone that wanted professional portrait photos to use Melanie and I would happily use her again if the need arose."
Tom Low, Financial Advisor and Planner, March 2018
"I would like to thank Melanie for making me feel so comfortable whilst taking photos of myself . I have many photos of my children and very few of myself . So I thought I give myself a treat! I felt very self conscious but Mel put me at ease and the results were fabulous ."
DG, June 2017
"Melanie is an excellent photographer who put me at ease from the moment we met to the end of the session. She took time to understand me and my needs before starting the shoot. As it was out in public, I felt a bit self-conscious but she soon made that disappear with her relaxed and approachable style. I would definitely recommend Melanie."
Director of Lance Hobbs of HR DEPT, June 2017
"Mel has just completed her 3rd photo shoot for Little Cherry and we are thrilled with the results. Thanks Melanie!"
Sandra Adar of Little Cherry, June 2014
"Melanie has supported the marketing team here at Google Enterprise in the UK over the past two years. She delivered executive profile photography to support speaking events which can be seen on http://www.googleatmosphere.com/london/speakers/ - Mel is personable, reliable, creative in her approach and fun to work with. I would recommend her photographic capabilities and services."
Dave Keene of Google Enterprise, May 2014
"Melanie has great photography skills coupled with an ability to fully grasp the brief from a commercial angle. The result has been lots of creative and very marketable photography material."
Anthony Morrin of Spaceist, May 2014
"Melanie took my profile picture and a ton of others that I regulary use for my websites, highly recommend."
Louise Dutfield of The Cracked Pot, March 2013
"I needed some photographs of myseIf for business purposes: I absolutely hate having my photo taken and would thoroughly recommend Melanie for the camera-shy awkward type of customer that I am! She was a lovely person to work with, totally put me at ease, spent a great deal of time selecting different locations appropriate to my work, both indoors and out, and to my astonishment I ended up selecting quite a few photographs from the final results, including the one I use for Linkedin. The results were just the combination I wanted - very professional pictures that managed to portray a relaxed friendly image. I would wholeheartedly recommend Melanie for business or personal portrait photography and would be delighted to hire Melanie again if the need arose."
Caro Sanders of Caro Garden Design, Nov 2011
"If you need a professional portrait photo; if you want to feel relaxed and at ease whilst having your photo taken; and if you want to have a fun experience with great results - then Melanie's the woman for you! This was my experience at Melanie's studio in West London and I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending her services."
Valerie Smith of Viva Videos, August 2010
"We love Melanie Moss Photography! We've had family photoshoots with Melanie since the children were really little and love the results every time. Melanie not only manages to get us all to relax but keeps the kids completely engaged at the same time. The most difficult part is selecting which photos we want as she also manages to make us look pretty good too!"
TP, November 2019 (6th family photoshoot with Melanie)
"Melanie has a beautiful space in West London and made us feel super comfortable with our 8 month old baby. Her photos were incredible and she was really easy to work with, even with our very active baby on the scene! Editing, post-processing and delivery were really quick, and we could not recommend her enough."
PC, August 2019
"We have really enjoyed our photoshoot with you! We loved the fact that you made us feel so comfortable in your home studio and that you took some time to do some pre- research on the type of photos we were after, and had ideas/materials to propose to us. The end result are great photos which we can’t wait to print out and share with our family and friends!"
EK, January 2018
"This is the third time we have used Melanie for photos of our children and we couldn’t be more pleased. She photographed our twin boys and daughter just after the twins were born, then again 4 years later and just now another 4 years later. She definitely got the best out of the children making them feel at ease (especially our teenage daughter). The shoot was held in her home which felt less formal. The photos were processed the same day and are stunning. It was hard to choose which ones to have! Love them and will be back in another 4 years!
KC & SC, November 2017
"As a family we have used Melanie for four photo shoots over the past 8 years. Melanie is a great photographer who listens to what the client wants and adapts a flexible and friendly approach to achieve the best results. Her work is fantastic and we have several of her photos on our walls at home. Melanie’s prices are competitive and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her."
KH, May 2017
"The whole family adores Melanie! We met her over 5 years ago when we saw the quality of her work at my daughters Twister Show. Since then she has been doing our annual family portraits which we all look forward to; the kids come in costumes and we just goof off while she clicks away and manages to make us look good! It helps that she has a real knack for making us all feel comfortable and is really patient! We tried a high street shop before we found out about her and must say there is no comparison - she is always friendly, professional, and accommodating both in terms of scheduling and customisation and the quality is always superb despite having us as subject matter!"
TP, July 2014
"Melanie has photographed my children twice - in 2009 and 2014 and I can't recommend her highly enough. She is so good at putting the children at ease, making the whole process fun, resulting in the best photos. Melanie is also excellent value for money - you can just order photos according to your budget. Fantastic photographer!"
KC, May 2014
"Melanie's photography really captured both our children's playfulness and their more reflective moments. She has an eye for catching the not-so-obvious shots, some of which turned out to be our favourites. Melanie's warm personality made the whole photo shoot experience relaxed and fun, the children had such a great time. We will treasure these photos always, and we plan to use Melanie for all of our future family photo shoots."
SR, May 2014
"I had a family photo shoot with Melanie when my littlest one was just 1 years old. Melanie was amazing with my kids and they love the photoshoot - so much so we went back!! She took the most incredible photos of my family - ones that we will treasure forever. I can highly recommend Melanie Moss as an excellent and very professional photographer!"
