“Sara’s great to work with and always delivers exactly what we need. Following a re-brand we needed to completely refresh our image stock capturing the breadth and character of the North West. Sara completely understood the brief from day one and has added great value with a really wide range of great images for us to use on and offline. Sara has always gone the extra mile to get permissions for locations and shots we would not have thought of – thanks Sara!” Jonny Morgan, External Communications Manager, Electricity North West

“I have worked with Sara for a number of years now as the professional photographer for both The National Diversity Awards and The Inclusive Companies Awards (formerly The Excellence in Diversity Awards). Sara is such an easy person to work with and maintains a high standard of professionalism throughout each event. Sara works so hard to capture the true essence of each event, encompassing the atmosphere on the night and capturing the genuine reactions of our winners and shortlisted nominees. I love to work with Sara and can’t recommend her enough. I look forward to continuing our working partnership for many years to come.” Paul Sesay, Founder & Director of The National Diversity Awards

“It gives me great pleasure to recommend Sara to you. Sara has joined us on a number of occasions, including the Royal Opening of The Stoller Hall when she captured so brilliantly the spirit of all that goes on at Chetham’s. Recent photography for our prospectus was just stunning and involved well planned, sympathetic shoots. Delighted!” Alun Jones, Head, Chethams School of Music

“Sara displayed not only an excellent understanding of our requirements but delivered exceptional images. Extremely professional and a joy to work with, we look forward to a long working relationship.” Anne Hobson, Head of Customer Communications, United Utilities

“We were very pleased with the photos that Sara took of our spaces. We have two very different sites, one a bright, open, modern building completed in 2012, the other a beautiful but dark and sometimes cramped medieval building built in 1421 – quite the contrast! Sara captured lovely images of both spaces, her technical abilities allowed her to manage to brighten the medieval spaces without losing their character and show off the modern building without making it feel cold.” Elizabeth Coulson, Chethams School of Music, Manchester.

“I recently asked Sara to update my head and shoulders shots for the business as they were out of date, the results were really impressive. Firstly, you must visit and use their Kinetik Studios in Stockport – a fantastic space for innovative, creative photography, whether you need product or people shots doing. The natural lighting is superb and the different textured walls and backgrounds gave variety and interest to what can normally be ‘boring’ commercial photos. I wanted a natural, welcoming photograph which could help portray the friendliness of our business. Even though I dont like having my photography taken I was made to feel at ease and I was delighted with the range and quality of the photographs Sara has taken. I can highly recommend other businesses visit Kinetik soon. ” Helen Duncan, Managing Director, Fig Creative & Fig Digital

“It is always a pleasure working with Sara. She takes the time to truly understand the client’s objectives and has a great eye for detail. She is creative, responsive, enthusiastic and keeps to budget. We worked most recently on a project around market traders at Kirkgate Market, Leeds. It takes a great photographer to capture the moments that truly show the spirit and essence of someone, she truly has that skill. I cannot recommend her highly enough and look forward to the next opportunity to work with her again.” Lynne Calvert, Creative Director, Threefold

“I have so much admiration and respect for Sara – she is a wonderful, kind and incredibly passionate women and I cannot thank her enough for donating her time and services to our charity. Sara approached Smart Works as she wanted to get involved in a voluntary capacity. Along with the help of a MUA, Sara arranged a make-over shoot for 8 of our clients to help make them feel pampered and special. We are a female charity where our clients are generally unemployed for 2 years or more, be that through abuse, addiction, or debilitating lack of confidence, so this was a lovely treat for some of our clients. Sara immediately put our clients at ease with her warm, welcoming personality and comfortable studio setting. Our clients commented on how overwhelmed they felt by how they were made to feel, and they could not believe they were the people in the photos – they looked amazing, so natural and relaxed. The images are superb and of a very high quality. From start to finish, the service we received from Sara was impeccable and I would highly recommend her to anyone – she is the ultimate professional”. Laura Dalby, UK Head of Licensees, Smart Works

“Sara is an exceptionally talented photographer and artist, a true master of her craft. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone and am always looking for ways to get her back working with me again. However, her unmatched eye for detail and aesthetics is only half the story. She is incredibly easy and good fun to work with, she is efficient, timely and impeccably organised.
“She also just ‘gets it’! We commissioned her, after a very thorough procurement exercise. The results were truly amazing. In short, we were able to trust her with what was, for us, a project with high stakes in terms of risk and budget. The result surpassed our expectations.” Helen Langwick, Head of Interpretation, Royal Armouries

“It should be a core part of museum marketing and PR to have high quality and imaginative imagery to showcase their sites and their collections which is why I am pleased to work with Sara Porter and the Kinetik Studios team.” Camilla Nichol, Chief Executive, UK Antarctic Heritage Trust

“We’ve used Sara on several occasions, and she always provides a professional service getting the shots we need while being very discreet at our events. Her results are always excellent and her online gallery is a great way to share photos with our clients.” Lou Rudkin, Communications Manager, Nottingham Community Housing Association

“I cannot recommend Sara highly enough.  She has always delivered fantastic images often with an extremely short turnaround time with a pleasant helpful manner.  She is never intrusive and always enjoyable to deal with.  Sara goes the extra mile with her photography and also has nice additional touches without being prompted.” Katie Bray, Project Manager, North West Business Leadership Team

“I’m not at my most comfortable when someone is taking my photograph and I much prefer being behind the camera. That said, it was amazing to visit Sara at her studios in Stockport and made to feel totally relaxed about having my picture taken for my website update and social media profile. I’d highly recommend Sara to anyone for commercial and professional photography.” Nigel Grayson-Thorne, Director, ABK Accounting Services Ltd

“We’ve worked with Sara on a couple of occasions to capture a range of images for The National Diversity Awards and again for The Excellence in Diversity Awards. Sara is a joy to work with, reliable and ensures any brief provided is delivered to a high standard. We were very impressed by the quality of photographs taken and will continue to work with Sara on future events.” Emma Houghton, Events Manager, National Diversity Awards

“Sara did a great job creating a range of photos for business use. It was pleasure to work with her and the results have had rave reviews. I would happily use Sara again and recommend her for photographic work” Mike Knudsen, Business Coach

“Sara really does provide a high quality service. She’s professional and personable making it an absolute pleasure to work with.” Michelle Adams, Shuffle
