Clients thoughts

Even prior to appointing Russell, it's evident your engaging a true professional. I've had the pleasure of harnessing Russell's talent on a number of projects over the years and each time, it's evident you are dealing with an incredibly, creative individual who's personal qualities reflect in every photo. He instils a sense of reassurance that you're not only dealing with a person who is utterly committed to his profession but also a true gentleman with an individual flare and skill that is second to none. I highly recommend Russell to anyone who equally value a professional with such qualities"

Russell photographed the Jetty swim this year and did a fabulous job. His images showed the real character of the event and his ability to transmit direct from his camera to our social media manager was amazing. I would highly recommend him for any event.

During my tenure as GM of Captain Cook Cruises I used Russell for any in-house photo shoot requirements; and as a preferred supplier for photographic services for our boat charter and wedding clients.  Russell was an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout, and produced results of exceptional quality and forward vision that even 5 years on, the photos are still in use in printed and digital collateral.  Russell also had an eye for creative branding and lifestyle shots outside of the norm; again that have stood the test of time.  He shows a depth of care for you both personally and professionally that you know that this is a passion that goes well beyond just another job; as he invests in you as the client. When the need arises in the future for professional photographic services; Russell would be my only consideration.

I have used Russell Barton as a photographer for many years. Russell doesn't just press the shutter. He immerses himself in a shoot to ensure you get the result that you are after.  Creative, trustworthy and always reliable.  Architectural, social, event, awards, formal or portrait all fit comfortably in his portfolio. For architectural, he works magic with lights and angles. For social he will involve himself with any crowd to get the best results. For events he will research the best photographic positions and capture 'the moment' that captures the spirit of the challenge. For awards he will ensure that the right photos are taken at the right time. For formal and portrait he will make the subject be totally at ease and garner the best picture possible with a creative flair. I have no hesitation in recommending Russell.

Hi Russell and Jill - I just got a chance now to sit back and review the photos - they are amazing!!! I really, really like them you have nailed the brief perfectly. I particularly love the shots at the campfire with the stormy skies, those shots were even better than what I had imagined in my head! Big thankyou to the both of you for all your hard work that went into that shoot, I hope it was enjoyable and you can be very pleased that you have two very happy clients:) We will now begin the daunting task of choosing which ones to add to the website and how! Many thanks again, we are really excited. Hope to work again in the future.
