Harrogate Town AFC“Charlotte recently helped me with some promotional photographs for Harrogate Town Football Club. I have known Charlotte for many years, but this is the first time we have actually had the opportunity to work together. The photographs are amazing, the food pictures make me hungry every time I look at them.  Charlotte is a perfectionist and guides you through what she thinks will make a good shot. She also delivers what she says she will deliver and on time. I hope to work with Charlotte again and will have no hesitation recommending her. If you need photographs for a brochure or promotional shots for your website then Charlotte Gale is the photographer to use.”

Vicky Findlow, VJF associates

 

“Charlotte was retained to take informal photographs at a garden party at our home to celebrate our daughter’s wedding, which had taken place the previous day.  From start to finish Charlotte was fantastic – from capturing the guests arriving in an informal manner through to the new bride leaving the family home in a vintage car.  The quality of photographs is superb. The informality of the pictures is exactly what we wanted. We would certainly use Charlotte again for family events and recommend her to our friends and contacts. A big thank you from my wife and myself.” Tim and Helen Cottier, Kent Road, Harrogate

 

“Charlotte photographed Envireau Water’s 2017 client summer garden party. She blended in and captured the personality and spirit of the attendees perfectly. She doesn’t just take photographs, she captures moments. She not only understood and fulfilled the brief for photographing the event, she also managed to fit in taking corporate headshots for our website, and went above and beyond to turnaround the edited photographs within 48 hours. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Charlotte to others and Envireau Water will definitely be using her for future projects.”  Leanne Thomas, Marketing Co-ordinator, Envireau Water

 

“Charlotte is our events photographer of choice. Great to work with, she has an unobtrusive style that our clients love and a great way of capturing the essence of every event we’ve asked her to cover. Highly recommended.” Kaley Gardiner, Marketing Team, Bowcliffe Hall.

 

“We are absolutely delighted with the photos which Charlotte took of our 2 sons Freddie (aged 2) & Max (aged 3 months).  A very difficult task to take photos of 2 lively young boys, but Charlotte captured their playful personalities perfectly and was extremely patient throughout. We had lots of fun together experimenting with different props, and we certainly have some very special photos which will be treasured for a long time.” Jane and Mark Winter, Leeds

 

“At Ashfield Building Group we can’t thank Charlotte enough for making our team ‘headshots’ look so presentable for our new commercial brochure.” Bev Ibbetson, Ashfield Building Group, Leeds

“We appointed Charlotte Gale Photography to undertake the photography for our new website. Charlotte was a great pleasure to work with. She maximised her time ensuring that we got the images that were important to us for the website along with some great contrasting shots on location in our workshop. Her attention to detail, flexability was much appreciated. The final set of photographs where outstanding. Thank you Charlotte.” Anthony Martin, Valve Solutions Ltd

 

“Charlotte took some excellent photos of our family when our son Harry was two weeks old. She even managed to get some of our dog which is usually quite a challenge! She was very professional from the outset and managed to get some beautiful shots despite it being an incredibly hot and rather uncomfortable July day. They were all very natural and we were very pleased with the end result. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Charlotte and will certainly be using her in the future.” Susanna and Oliver Robinson, Kent

 

“I have commissioned Charlotte on a number of occasions for my restaurant – website, advertising, brochures etc.  She is a delight to work with;  professional, patient and diligent. Her most recent undertaking for me was to do close up shots of our food.  The results were outstanding … as good as any food shots I have seen on any website or in any magazine.  We will definitely be calling on Charlotte again!”  Steve Patton, Becket’s Restaurant, Knaresborough

 

Samphire Bistro - Berry Crumble

“This is to thank you for the job you did for us in creating striking images for  the Samphire Bistro.  On such an unpromising grey day to produce the interior and exterior shots that you have is a tribute to your skill and patience. The food photography was a lesson in itself as to how to present food looking its best.  It has done much to enhance our website and the photos are on permanent display in the restaurant, which customers have commented on most favourably.  I am happy to recommend your services to any other budding entrepreneurs who want to put a foot in the water in these trying times. Our thanks for a job well done.”

Terry King, Samphire Bistro, Ripon

 

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for the photography. We loved having the shoot at home.  Toby was relaxed in familiar surroundings and it was useful to be able to grab our own ‘props’ (his favourite toys, his Dad’s shoes etc) as inspiration struck!  You helped put us all at ease, were so considerate of the family’s needs and your fabulous pictures speak for themselves.  I’ll definitely be recommending you – the pictures you took have really captured this special time and will make lovely gifts for our family. Thanks again!” Amy Lund, Wetherby

 

“I have worked with Charlotte on many projects, including her doing the photo shoot for my recipe in the ‘Rhubarb Cook Book’ by Elaine Lemm. Charlotte has also taken other food photos for me for various projects, including magazine articles and newspaper food photos. I find she has a great eye for detail and a photo that is different in its make up and makes the food look amazing!”  Stephanie Moon, Consultant Chef

 

“Loyalty Matters have worked with Charlotte several times, and we have recommended her services on numerous occasions to clients who require photography.  She has a friendly, approachable personality and can manage even the most exacting client needs with a professional manner.  I would have no hesitation in recommending her services to any clients in the future.”  Peter Saddington, LoyaltyMATTERS, Harrogate

 

“After buying some of Charlotte’s great scenic Christmas cards, I decided I would like a framed photograph of our new home as a gift for my partner.  Charlotte took a lot of time and effort to ensure she captured the subject on a bright sunny day and in the best light.  We are both delighted with the final result and it has pride of place in our garden room.  It was a pleasure doing business with Charlotte.”  Gail Merralls, Knaresborough

 

“Charlotte is a friendly and efficient professional, with all the technical and artisitc skills required to produce superb work.  Nothing seems too much for her and she shows real interest and patience in her subject, enough to produce work of the highest quality.  She has just finished photographing a high quality print of a Seventeenth Century painting for me, which has resulted in top quality reproduction, and I have no hesitation in recommending her.” John Standeven

“Thank you Charlotte. What fantastic service, not to mention fantastic products. As a rather limited, but in the last few years regular buyer, I am so pleased with the service you offer. Having ordered cards last night, with no postage charge, they were delivered today – better than Amazon and more unique! And I have such great feedback from those that receive the lovely cards. Many thanks” Mike Baker CBE, Knaresborough
