"I would like to commend Sam, as I believe she is a great photographer. I asked Sam to take photographs of me at the last minute whilst conducting my presentation, which she happily accommodated. She captured the moment beautifully and the photographs produced are images I am able to send out to companies to show me in action.
Sam was extremely professional and offered great direction in regards to angles and shooting points. She even touched upon lighting and movement something I hadn't really thought of before.
Sam would definitely be someone I would highly recommend, as I know her attention to detail will always enable her to produce great images."

"I chose to work with Sam Appa for my headshots not only because I'd seen excellent examples of both her family and corporate photography, but primarily because she came so highly recommended by my trusted business network.
Sam is a professional in every sense of the word. I won't lie, I felt incredibly nervous and self-conscious at the prospect of being in front of a camera, and yet Sam's warm character and her keen eye to find the right lighting immediately put me at ease. I knew I was in good hands.
The photos were returned to me within the timeframe we agreed, and Sam thoughtfully provided both high-resolution and low-resolution versions for my files.
What impressed me the most about Sam was her after-service. Once I had confirmed receipt of the files, Sam called to ask for feedback. She said that it was far better to speak about first impressions over the phone, rather than go back and forth with emails. What a star! Rather than simply sign off on the job and send an invoice, Sam truly cares about checking that her clients are 100% happy.
In short, Sam was a dream to work with, and I encourage anyone in need of headshots to book in with her immediately."

I first called on Sam to photograph our charity event in March. Sam discussed the type of photo's we were looking for and then went to the location in her own time to "scout" the venue as she was unfamiliar with the location. That is above and beyond... Due to circumstances beyond our control, disappointingly the event cancelled. Sam was very generous in accepting our apology so I asked Sam to take some photo's of our team for our forthcoming new website - which were required quite urgently. I wasn't disappointed. Sam managed to squeeze us in on short notice, found a lovely location for our head and shoulder shots on a staircase in the office.
Sam gave a lot of thought to what to me was a very simple process and the end result was that we got some great photo's - in colour and black & white - all on a memory stick delivered in time for our deadline. I cannot commend the work that Sam did highly enough. For someone like me who is a "point and click" photographer it was refreshing to see a true professional at work. Sam obviously loves taking pictures, gives a lot of thought to "framing" the pictures to achieve the best possible results and is a true professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sam to anyone.
Thanks for the photo's and memories Sam."

"In March, I asked Sam to take photographs of a house that I had bought in preparation for putting it up for rent.
I really appreciated Sam managing to fit me in to her busy diary at short notice and her enthusiasm to ensure that she had a range of shots from every angle to get that perfect picture.
Sam went straight to work in editing and producing me a final collection of photographs on the same day so that there were no delays to advertising.
The quality of the photographs taken by Sam was excellent and I have no doubt made a significant difference to the number of viewings that the advert attracted.
This is the second time that I have employed Sam to take professional photographs and on each occasion she has exceeded my expectations in terms of the quality, care and efficiency of service.
I would recommend Sam Appa without hesitation for all your photography needs."

"I have recommended Sam for a number of client projects and it's always good to hear great feedback.
With having new team members and a new website coming soon, it made sense to try Sam first hand.
Sam was very professional, very quick and kept us on our toes! This ensured we made the best use of Sam's time in the office. Lots of creative ideas and we can't wait to get the pictures on line!!
Again, we would have no hesitation continuing to recommend Sam to our clients."
- Terry Ellis, H22 Solutions Limited
"No hesitation in recommending Sam Appa.
I recommended Sam to a local estate agent that values good photography. Within days, Andy Smith from Newton Fallowell had commissioned Sam to complete some work for a property that they were selling.
Andy was very pleased with the results and commented as follows: "Sam is great, I like her photography and she's really nice so I won't have any issues using her in the future. I have a photographer already in place, but, I'm sure I'll get a chance to spread the work."
I would have absolutely no hesitation recommending Sam in the future."
- Jackie Key, Key Principles
"Sam stepped in at short notice to photograph a Ball I organised on 30th September at The Crowne Plaza. She arrived early which gave the guests many different opportunities to be photographed in their DJs and Ball Gowns.
We have had nothing but positive feedback about the whole event and Sam was certainly an important ingredient in the success of the event and giving it a very special feel.
Sam is very professional and produced some great photos - she even managed to make me look ok!
I would recommend Sam and will certainly use her services again if I need a photographer.
