Russell Craig – Senior Director, Community and Media Relations, Asda

I worked with Ian Howarth Photography for over twelve years, particularly during my tenure as Head of Communications at MAG (Manchester Airports Group) and would not hesitate to recommend his services to any potential client, from blue chip corporates to SMEs or individuals. Ian’s approach is to understand the client’s requirements before any shoot which translates into the quality of his work, whether photography or videography, to produce excellent results. His friendly, collaborative style makes him a pleasure to work with and his flexible approach means he can adapt his style to suit any requirements from national media photography to marketing materials.

We have worked with Ian Howarth Photography for many years and have always been extremely pleased with the service and products that we have received. Ian is contentious, professional and creative and the images he captures have increased and improved our brand recognition.

Ian has never let us down and I would highly recommend him as a superb and proficient press and product photographer. A great supplier.
