“Tim was fantastic to work with and managed to encapsulate who Scomis are perfectly. He was extremely organised and knew exactly how to get the best out of people. Our photoshoot with Tim was great fun and the quality of the output is brilliant. We won’t hesitate to use Tim again.” - Communications & Marketing Assistant, Scomis (Nov 19)
“I chose Tim as our drone pilot cameraman and stills photographer to work with our existing videography team for a day’s commission in Somerset making a video about Honda's off-road motorbike experience. He fitted in to our Honda team immediately, and was able to nail all the aerial shots, as well as getting us some great still photos too. Highly recommend Tim as a creative - especially as he rides and rates Hondas!” Nick Bennett, Digital Content & Social Media Manager, Honda (UK)
"Thanks so much for your time on Tuesday, we received a lot of positive feedback from the staff in terms of your conduct and friendly nature, and you really got the best out of everybody.
The photos look absolutely fantastic – somehow you’ve managed to make accountancy look fun. I have no idea how you achieved this…" - Senior Tax Manager, Evolution ABS
“We needed a photographer that could be relied on to capture a series of high quality images in a range of settings and conditions, including industrial workplaces where there was limited time available. Tim’s technical expertise and ability to quickly put people at ease ensured he got the results we were after. His professionalism, flexibility and eagerness to make the most of any situation make him a pleasure to work with..” - South West Water
"We chose Tim for the Gregory Distribution shoot after the excellent work he did for us with South West Water. He has a great understanding of how to get the best out of people, and when you are dealing with ordinary folks and not professional models, it's essential to have that calming focus - but still be able to coax the very best out of who is in front of the camera. He did this with great aplomb during the Gregory shoot. The pics have been extremely well received by all involved. I would certainly recommend Tim to anyone who's looking to produce the highest calibre of photography." - AB Group (Design Agency)
"Having worked with Tim for years, here at Devon Interiors and at our previous practise, he is certainly the 'go to guy' who delivers and exceeds expectation every time! Being a design focused business, Tim knows the importance of capturing a visually impacting image that helps promote our interiors." - Devon Interiors (Interior Designers)
" As part of our recent rebrand we needed photography and video for our new website. We chose to work with Tim for the photography and video as he offered us the best combination of value and quality. Another benefit of using Tim for both was the end result for both photography and video had a consistency that we think may not have been achieved had we chosen a person for photography and another for video. We where very impressed by Tim's rapport with all our team, putting them at ease, making the day much more enjoyable and far less stressful than they had anticipated." - D2 (Design Agency)

"SIG Construction Accessories has used Tim Pestridge for several projects and his service has always been second to none. The nature of our work can mean at times, we need photography within a narrow timeframe and on each occasion Tim has come up with the necessary solution. Tim has great attention to detail, and provides a range of photo's that satisfy the original brief, as well as additional shots that he believes may be of use, when on site. Not only does Tim take excellent photographs, he is an extremely hard working, reliable and friendly professional who goes out of his way to ensure that the photographs are received quickly for our commercial activities." - SIG Construction Accessories, SIG Fixings
“We were delighted with the quality of Tim's photographs and his relaxed and friendly manner which made him very easy to work with. We achieved all the shots we wanted to on the day and the results were excellent. In fact we had a lot of comments about the quality of the photographs and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him or use him again." - GM Coachwork Ltd
