"Tobie has now undertaken three rounds of product shoots for Buxumbox - all have produced some fantastic imagery which has had a verifiable impact on sales. Any lingering ambitions to do this kind of work in-house were quickly dashed when I saw the results - the quality of the compositions and especially the post-processing is exceptional. Tobie certainly understands the needs of a busy, growing business - he grasped the brief concisely and delivered promptly. I couldn’t ask for more."

'This is the second time I have commissioned Tobie to shoot some photos for me, the first time was for some pre deployment photos prior to a 6 month tour of Afghanistan undertaken by my old army regiment.
When my current company decided to commission some new photographs to update our website I had no hesitation in calling up Tobie. He is friendly and approachable and happy to work with very little guidance. I gave him a (very) rough idea of what we were after and left him to get on with things. The results have been great he has really managed to capture the natural feel of the memorial park. His photographs are fresh and colourful and just what I had hoped for.
I have no hesitation in recommending Tobie for any future work. Thanks again for your hard work and creative talent.'
