JOE LENTON - Norwich
In just a couple of hours I've gained insights that are invaluable and will guide my work going forward, especially for further qualifications. Angela quickly picked up on what areas I need to work on and helped me see through my blind spots. Her experience as a working photographer and judge means that she can give practical advice that helps to achieve results. As a professional myself, Angela has given the most useful input I've had into my photography in years. Joe Lenton ASWPP ASINWP ASICIP ADPS

Thank you so much... the input and feedback per image is just amazing, and it taught me a lot about my strengths and weaknesses, which I will improve from now on. Thank you so much Angie, the feedback is invaluable I take on-board everything I have learnt from this submission. Some of the images are from a few years ago, so I have moved on since then. But I work on a new body of work, and certainly take everything you have told me into that. Many thanks again, I really appreciate the time and feedback.

ALAMAR PHOTOGRAPHY - Stoke Ferry, Norfolk
After looking for some time for a mentor that I felt I could connect with I met Angela Adams. I had seen and admired Angela’s work for some time but when I met her I found her enthusiasm for photography both refreshing and infectious. Angela is a technically competent photographer with a great imagination and who also has the ability to listen to you and how you want to progress with your photography and tailor her mentoring sessions to achieve your goals. I am happy to recommend Angela to anyone who is serious about improving their photography skills and becoming the best photographer they can be.

MICHAEL MILLS PHOTOGRPAHY - Alfreton, Derbyshire
This year I attended my first awards evening... I received an awarding critique of my work by Angela Adams who prompted me to go back to family portraits. So at the weekend dug out a hand-painted background, booked a child model. Thank you to all for a great evening and most of all a big thank you to Angela Adams for the butt-kicking critique.

WILLIAMS FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHERS - Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex
I first asked Angela for help when we set up our new studio. She spent a day with my son and I and advised on an array of subjects. Subsequently we both decided to apply for a Licentiate with the SWPP and her guidance to us both us was crucial - her fair but firm way of critiquing images is refreshing and is never condescending or harsh. It’s always a pleasure and an inspiration when her measured comments are received. We both passed our distinctions with Angela supplying invaluable mentoring and honest advice. Angela’s own work is exceptional and a standard that any aspiring photographer should aim to achieve. I would recommend Angela highly for training, mentoring and for her wonderful way of critiquing work but always adding encouragement.

MOONCHILD PORTRAITS - Leicestershire
I have built my own website and wanted someone to write the content. I was very unsure about how someone can write about the products and services I provide. But Angela amazed me with her report. She has great attention to detail and was very patient throughout the procedure. I was in awe of some of her suggestions. She has also suggested some simple changes to my website which I thought was very useful. Highly recommend.

I have known Angela as a colleague, mentor and now good friend for several years now. Angela's skills as both a photographer and business woman are something I always aspire to. I have worked with her, and employed her to take business profile shots of me and assist with my personal and professional development. Her enthusiasm, together with a professional, but friendly attitude to everything she is involved in is inspirational.

I just wanted to say a personal thank you to you, more than anyone for being honest with me throughout my photography journey, and supportive. Your support, encouragement, mentoring and honesty (whilst I don’t always hear it) have really been appreciated and have undoubtedly helped me progress. I can’t tell you how proud I am to have made three commends in the top landscape photography competition, despite those images not always doing well at BPE, I kept faith with them knowing that amongst landscapers they had a special quality, so to have that acknowledged really means the world to me. And with me hosting a stand at next years Photography Show at the NEC for 4 days I really want to try and use this as a platform to build a reputation and entice customers to my brand of photography. Thanks again.

DETHEO PHOTOGRAPHY - Hertfordshire & Essex
I am just writing to say a huge THANK You for reviewing my images and sending me my feedback. This was by far the most informative and useful of all the reports I've had. Firstly, it arrived so quickly which took me by total surprise. The critique for each image was detailed and gave me clarity on the possible improvements that can be made and I actually feel for the first time that I can understand what is letting the images down from a technical point of view, rather than a personal preference. I would just like you to know that I really appreciate the time and effort you have gone to and that you've really helped to reinstate my desire to work towards my next qualification. Kindest Regards Maria Michael

Hi, Angela, I hope you don't mind me messaging you but I have just received my Licateship confirmation through the post and I just wanted to say that your feedback was really useful and helpful. It gave me pointers where i need to go to improve rather than just black and white good enough/ not good enough. Thank you

I’ve just received my Licentiate submission review (and certificate!)... I just wanted to say a quick thank you for taking the time to give such a thorough and useful critique of my panel. I really value your comments and will (try!) and commit these to memory for all my future weddings and portraits. I’m excited to get the first level of my qualification pathway and will be looking at my composition, posing and lighting skills for my associate level. Thank you again.
