We would like to thank Stuart for making our day really special. We booked him after reading the testimonials on his website. Everything that his clients have said is true, he was fantastic. He put Dean and myself at ease and helped make our wedding day really special.  Dean and I felt we had known Stuart for a long time even though we hadn’t.

The pictures he produced were beautiful. He captured the most special and memorable parts of the day and I will cherish them forever. I strongly recommend Stuart who is professional, friendly and makes you feel totally at ease.

I’m not normally one to write testimonials but we are delighted with the photographs Stuart took for us. We are so impressed with the quality and attention to detail that we have used them to revamp our website and, I can honestly say, they have transformed it!!

It was a chance meeting that led to Stuart doing some photography for us. From the outset we liked his personality; friendly, confident, easy going and relaxed. He is genuinely interested in his work and will do whatever is needed to make a project work.

Before the shoot we discussed what we wanted to achieve and in response, he built a photographic story around who we are and what our business is about.

On the day of the shoot, he made us feel relaxed and provided insightful advice using our ideas. After the shoot, we met to discuss his images and work out which would best meet our requirements. The meetings were constructive and really helped us to focus our thinking.

Before meeting Stuart we held the belief that commercial photography was too expensive for a company of our size. He has definitely altered our opinion on that one, he was a pleasure to work with. We think his work has helped to transform the image of our company. We cannot recommend him enough.

Live Performance Photography: Strictly Murder

Live Performance Photography: Strictly Murder by Brian Clemens

Brian Clemens’ “Strictly Murder” marks the Saddleworth Players’ directorial debut of acting stalwart Sam al- Hamdani.

Although this is his first time at the helm in the Millgate Theatre, Sam is no stranger to the director’s chair having directed for several other societies, notably the Rochdale Curtain Theatre.

In “Strictly Murder” Brian Clemens, who is probably best remembered as the creator of The Avengers and The Professionals, has written an intricate, interesting and enigmatic story.

It’s April 1939, and an English couple, Peter and Suzy, are living in Provence in idyllic isolation, far, it seems, from the rumblings of the coming war. Their peace is shattered from within when Suzy discovers she has been betrayed when she discovers Peter is not the man he claims to be. Suzy’s life is thrown into turmoil as the possibility arises that Peter may in fact be a ruthless killer on the run. When a Scotland Yard detective arrives, events become even more complicated and frightening, lies, subterfuge and murder make this fast- moving thriller a dark and disturbing roller-coaster of bluff and double bluff.
