TESTIMONIALS

" I really enjoy working with Jacques and his team..

They help create stories for brands from a blank paper and always deliver to the brief.  I have worked with them to create stills and films for brands and love Jacques approach to the creative process.  His storyboarding skills make the process so much easier as everyone is clear from the outset what needs to be achieved on the day.”

“Jacques is passionate about getting things done beautifully and to brief..

His inquisitive nature and eye for the right aesthetic was a perfect fit for the project. Our film was briefed, researched and produced in a limited time frame, but this never fazed him. The client is overjoyed with the resulting films, which have become a new benchmark for their brand.”

– Ciara Rollings – Account Manager – The Team –

" From the outset,..

Jacques’ apparent genuine interest in social history, his passion for telling a good story and his desire to create something ‘timeless’ meant that for us, he was the right man for the job..

Jacques’ task wasn’t an enviable one… to shift through a vast archive of musty heritage ephemera, identify the interesting objects to effectively tell the NS&I story and then construct a visually engaging journey in limited time, that could all be captured on film.

Constantly inventive in his approaches to art direction, devising fresh ways to arrange and present material and always ready to adapt and rethink the options, Jacques turned boxes of archive materials into a mini heritage landscape. For a brief few days in a nondescript studio space, Jacques created something that made heritage come alive – taking us on a visual odyssey though 160 years of history.”

"Jacques team understand completely the balance between creating brand assets that tick the commercial box are are engaging for the customer...

Jacques’ creative approach and highly skilled team ensure each shoot is as productive as possible and Jacques energy, enthusiasm and attention to detail makes him a joy to work with.”

“I always enjoy shooting with Jacques and recommend him highly..

He is a rare gem in the creative world.

I have worked with jacques on many different projects for the past 10 years. He has a great passion for creative work and has a very sensitive touch with each individual subject which comes across amazingly in his portraiture photography and interiors work, yet he is fully established and talented in all areas of photography and film.”

"Having worked with Jacques on a number of projects over the years, I can say with honesty that he is always my go-to photographer..

..for high-pressure projects that need extra care and attention.

A master at making everyone on set have fun and feel totally at ease – he always gets the best out of everyone (even frantic art directors and inexperienced models). He’s also wonderful at bringing a vision to life and his suggestions always help add a bit of extra flare. The end result is a great work, a happy team and a super satisfied client. Jacques is great fun and very professional and I’m always trying to find ways for us to work together again!”
