TESTIMONIALS FROM CLIENTS
Rachael has always been a valuable and professional asset to our
band The Hymek Manoeuvre, be it live performance shots or charity
fundraisers, her knack of really encapsulating a moment gives her
vast esteem in our opinion. With a genuine pedigree in all things
music and an impressive portfolio to boot, Rachael knows exactly
what she is doing and always conducts her self in a charming and
cheerful manner, which makes her a pleasure to work with every time.
A highly recommendable photographer and one that we look forward
to working with in the future. - Jack Williams, The Hymek Manoeuvre.
"The thing about Rachaels photographs is the way they
capture the emotion of the event, and in this case particularly;
and translate great musical performance into a long lasting memory."
- Mark Smutz-Smith C-management.
(Event: Matthew Jay Tribute Concert, in aid of Amnesty International
and UNICEF, Shepherd's Bush Empire, London).
"Rachael did a photo-shoot for Stolen Peace and the results
were stunning, she has a great eye for a great angle and manages
to capture the essence of the moment that oozes from the photo and
pulls you in. Myself and the band have been super happy with Rachael's
work, her enthusiasm and passion for what she does and her ability
to glide around getting great shots without you really even noticing
she is there. Highly recommend Rachael." - Martin Byrne,
Manager - Stolen Peace.
(Event: album launch, Hard Rock Cafe, Manchester).
"We invited Rachael to cover the launch of my new book on the
history of Chorlton in the Horse and Jockey. The lighting wasn't
good and the place was very full but Rachael captured the magic
of the night, presenting us with a collection of wonderful pictures
in both colour and black and white which have been in demand from
family friends and those who attended." - Andrew Simpson,
( Event: launch of The Story of Chorlton cum-Hardy. November 2012).
"Rachael has been and will remain my first choice of photographer
for any event. She has covered film shoots, music gigs and many
other ventures of mine. She is unobtrusive and obtains some of the
best candid shots in this way. I have never used a photographer
who has been more professional in their manner, and produced such
high quality images with such little fuss. I highly recommend Rachael
to any one for any shoot." - Charles
Allen-Wall, professional actor and musician.
(Events: numerous, including: '1599' film shoot at Haddon Hall,
Ordsall Hall; concert documentation, and promotional portraiture).
"My daughter, Sam Lyon is a singer/songwriter, and we wanted
some quality photographs for her web page.
We contacted Rachael who met with Sam at The Edge Recording Studios,
Alderley Edge, while she was there at a recording session. Rachael
took some fantastic photographs, completely candid. When I saw the
finished shots, they were absolutely fantastic, just looking at
them made you feel like you were actually in the studio. She caught
all the emotions of the trials and tribulations of a days recording.
We got more than enough quality material for Sams web page. Sam
has even had a back drop poster done of one of the photographs for
her gigs. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rachael to
anyone who wants good quality photographs, whatever their needs.
.Well done Rachael." - John Lyon.
"I have used Rachael Magowan Photography on two seperate
occasions to capture stills at film set locations, and was continually
impressed by her dedication, enthusiasm and attention to creative
detail. Rachael is very personable and demonstrates a high level
of professionalism in all aspects of the excellent service that
Paul Turley, TV Producer/ Broadcast Journalist.
"Rachael always puts her subjects at ease. Her portraiture
is very impressive and she has the skill to catch the feel of the
event, formal or otherwise. Her recent exhibitions in Chorlton featured
her diverse approach to landscape and her humour shines through
with some of the happen chance images displayed. Very personable,
her attention to detail is reflected in a professionally finished
product and many happy customers will testify to her work. I have
a couple of her nature studies and would recommend people to contact
her to view her work." - Kate Bevan, Director - Chorlton
"Dear Rachael, I would like to thank you for your support and
professional services offered at our 'Charity Guitar Trail 2010.'
Your work really highlights the effort that went into putting this
creative event together and running it on the day.
The photographic images really captured the essence of the event
and put all the artists in the limelight. Your professional attitude,
combined with excellent customer service, is not only appreciated,
but much admired. The best thing was your understanding of the needs
of the event and coverage on such extensive levels within a tight
budget that most charities have. After the event, services were
very prompt, and we are very happy with the results of the images
On behalf of the management of SparKINK and producers of the Charity
