See what Joe and Maz said about our recent shoot at Restaurant54!
"We’re proud of our pizzas, and we wanted to make sure they were duly honoured online. We had commissioned a lovely new website, but our Instagram snaps just didn’t cut the mustard. It was time to get the professionals in. After asking for recommendations on Twitter for a great photographer, there was one clear winner: We Are Hector.
Despite the shoot taking place during a busy lunch, not only did Gareth get some really beautiful shots of the food, but he didn’t get in the way once. No mean feat!
We’re really pleased with the images, and will be commissioning him again soon to take interior shots of our restaurant. We have already recommended him to other restaurateurs in the area. The quality of the images speak for themselves. And, for a small, growing business like us, the price point was perfect."

"Professional...easy to work with...understanding...clear" - Just some of the words Wyatt & Jones used to describe our recent food and restaurant photography shoot, read on for the full testimonial!
"We always knew the success to securing bookings for or accommodation relied significantly on the quality of the photos, because essentially that is what people buy into.
They worked tirelessly under sometimes difficult conditions, be that due to light outside/inside the property, early Sunday morning starts, challenging internal layouts or demanding Clients, but the end result what exactly what we were looking for. A lot of this was down to their hard work in ascertaining exactly what our requirements were and defining the brief as thoroughly as possible. Looking back over the whole process, what strikes us as Clients, is that we have achieved extremely good value for money when we consider the repeat visits, time spent on site and the processing of photos to achieve the best finish we could have hoped for. We would highly recommend them and certainly use them again."
Ben Irvine - My Seaside Luxury
"Gareth, I just wanted to let you know how pleased and excited I am with your work at our event. Your photography provided us with a superb library of professional images from our exhibition and conference and your eye for cover and editorial shots has given our designers some hard choices and plenty of copy space! Having previously taken our own 'in-house' photographs, we will stick with the professional from here on. It was a real pleasure working with you, the process was very easy."
Melina Day - Events Manager
“Sometimes, you meet someone with a new perspective. Gareth has that. His images are fresh, distinct. I hate ‘painting by numbers’ and Gareth matches that as he will look for what others do not see.He combines multiple disciplines; location, beauty, brand amongst others and can encapsulate these into a single photograph. He understands the psychology behind gaining and maintaining attention. As a creative professional I need to work with likeminded individuals who understand what I need now and what I might need in the future. Gareth will work a brief to the letter but also add another level of creative input wherever possible. He has a truly wicked sense of humour and it really is always a pleasure and never a chore working with him.”
Tom Howe - MD, creative selection consultants
"We Are Hector has beautifully captured the beauty in our products, demonstrating great artistry and technique and a great use of depth to bring a piece of electronic equipment to life!"
"I've been delighted with the first class service received from We Are Hector Photography. My product images have been imaginative and creative, whilst remaining focused and detailed; delivered quickly and in high quality. Nothing has been too much trouble - I can't recommend We Are Hector highly enough..."
"I couldn't recommend Gareth highly enough for portraits or people pictures. He can produce a group shot better than anyone I have worked with (and after 35 years in the media that's a lot of photographers). When I 'retired' from my business I didn't want a gold watch, or anything else for that matter, but I did want a picture of the team I was leaving behind - great people who I would miss a lot. And in just six shots (after grouping 40 people) he came up with pictures which exceeded all my expectations. Not a single closed eye or scowl from any of them! The composition was first rate and the quality second to none. Couldn't be happier. "
Rob Barrowman - Business Media Publisher
“What can we say! You captured pictures from the day that we had no idea you were taking. They were personal, intimate and a fantastic record of the day. Your reportage / journalistic style went perfectly with our special day, thank you both so much!”
Karl & Charlotte Savins
“We were delighted with our wedding day shots, they captured exactly what we had asked of Gareth; intimacy, laughter and the moment. Our day was very special and we are so happy to have such a lovely collection of photographs to keep the day alive in our memories. Thanks Gareth and Michelle.”
Daniel & Sarah Goldenberg
“We Are Hector Photography has given us beautiful photos we can treasure for the rest of our lives. Gareth’s personal and friendly approach made everyone feel comfortable and at ease, and he offered a professional service before, during and after our wedding day.”
Chris & Katherine Welch
“Oh my god guys, the pictures are out of this world! They made me cry!!! Unbelievable, so many amazing shots I don’t know how we are going to be able to choose the album shots!”
Neil & Simone Dunham
“Michelle & Gareth proved to be a great blessing for our wedding. They really listened and took on board all of our ideas, needs and concerns and we worked together to create the look we wanted. On the day they were so professional and caring and most of our guests commented on how fantastic the photographers were and how they made them feel so at ease, just like old friends. They had a great way of getting the right shots at the right time and not take too long, which we have experienced at some weddings we have been to – where the guests can get a little bored waiting!
When they presented the photo’s to us, they did so in a special preview of each part of the day set to music, it was so beautiful and of course made me shed a tear! The attention to detail was perfect and we cannot recommend highly enough their service, their photos and them as people. They helped make our day so special and of course one we will always remember beautifully from the photographs in our album. We are blessed.”
Greg & Katie Brumley
“Dear Gareth and Michelle,
We wanted to write to you and say how stunning our wedding photos are! You’ve captured the atmosphere perfectly, somehow managing to be in all the right spots at all the right times, without being obtrusive. In fact you were an absolute pleasure to have around the place!
Your photos have documented the day with such great attention to detail that even the smallest things will never be forgotten. We are over the moon with our collection and we can’t thank you enough for all your hard work. It was truly a beautiful day and we now have the stunning photos to prove it!!! Our album is something we will treasure forever.
Thank you to both you and Michelle, you delivered everything we wanted and more!!”
Dale & Rhiannon Asplin
"I used We Are Hector to document two of my London exhibitions. As an artist working both textured canvases and sculpture, I felt it was important to work with a photographer who would be able to work with the unique surfaces of each piece, rather than take a simple picture and also someone who was confident at capturing 3D. Gareth surpassed my expectations and found a way to bring out the best in my work, even adding a new dimension to it."
