What people say about Bex:

"I had a wonderful mentoring session with Bex. She was like a cool breath of fresh air on this muddled photographer’s brain! She’s not only really inspired and reassured me on both the images I’m taking and my photography business - she’s also given me immediate actions I can implement straight away which I know will have a real impact. And if all that wasn’t enough, she’s tremendously kind and enthusiastic, making the whole critiquing process (which I was petrified of) quite an enjoyable experience!

Thank you so much Bex xx" - Victoria Lugton

"Bex is not only a gifted photographer with a unique eye but she is incredibly giving when it comes to sharing what she knows and what drives her photography." - Laura Elizabeth Wood

"I cannot praise Bex enough! She is so friendly, professional and just overall lovely to work with. Her previous experience of portfolio building was really helpful in organising my own and this led to successfully achieving my goals. Her ability to talk you through the process easily as well as her being such a talented photographer makes this an opportunity not to be missed!" - Zephyre Rose Hood
