“a few kind words from people I’ve met along the way”


I asked Steve to take some branding photos for me. I did not want the usual head and shoulder pictures – don’t get me wrong they have their place. I just needed Steven to catch me naturally – and he certainly did! We went outside into the country and down by the beach which caught me at my best. Outside and just generally being daft. Thank you so much!

Praise. We all love happy customers and receiving testimonials and praise for our work and I’m no different to anybody else. It acts in two ways. One it gives potential clients an idea of how good we are as photographers and two, it encourages me to strive to keep getting better at my craft and what I do. Yep, there’s nothing better than to receive that thumbs up for our work. 

Thanks, Steve at Zooming Photography for a prompt and professional service. The photo’s and the effects you have created for us have been of great use. We are very pleased with the service and would recommend you to other potential clients. Jon

I organise the Portsmouth Inspiring Volunteer Awards, which has just had its second annual celebration event. Steve supported the awards by gifting his time to photograph this year’s awards thereby ensuring that those attending had quality images to remember and share with family and friends. The photographs are also being used by businesses that support the awards for their own publicity. Steve was great at communication throughout the planning. He discussed what was needed in advance and was at the event well ahead to help with the last minute planning.

Steve was able to provide photographs to the media within 24 hours to ensure we had maximum coverage to promote the Awards and winners. Steve has since provided a series of photographs that we have used on the website that far outstrips anything we have had previously, which in turn as provided a professional image to the event as a whole. 

I have received a great deal of positive feedback on Steve’s photos including from those that have only seen them in the media, and have shared his contact details to a number of interested people.

I invited Steve from Zooming Photography to take photos at one of our seasonal events. Not only did he deliver some excellent photos that we could share with our members, but the promotional shots for next year are already in the bag! He managed to capture the ‘soul’ of the event and of those who attended in such a pure and natural way. It is so refreshing to see images from a photographer who can bring more to the table than he’d been asked.

Steve was also well received by the event organisers, as his approach was open, friendly, supportive and non-intrusive.

Was very pleased with corporate images that Steve took for my business. A really nice guy that has a skill of capturing brilliant shots without being intrusive. Highly recommend. Thanks, Steve looking forward to working with you again for my big event in the Spring.

When you’re a photophobic like me, it’s brilliant to have someone like Steve “shooting” so discreetly. I never felt a thing! Brilliant!

I was recommended to ask Steven to take some photos for me to help promote a blog post and for my website. It was a fine suggestion. He found a great location, was friendly and professional throughout the shoot and sent me the images ready to use the next day via dropbox. The picture are just what I wanted with strong colours and clear evidence of the fun of shared music making. Plus I also have a head shot which I am using for my LinkedIn profile.

How can I put into words how overwhelmed I am at the amazing wedding photos Steve produced of our special day.

We can’t praise Steve highly enough. Even our guests and family have said since, what a lovely guy he was and that unlike most weddings they have been to, you hardly knew he was there.

I had waited my whole life for my dream wedding and Steve captured every beautiful moment for us to look back on for the rest of our lives.

Thank you so much Steve for our truly stunning memories in pictures and for being such a talented person who I knew I could trust with one of the most important events of my life.
