  • “I have worked with Bec on many jobs, I find her can-do attitude and oodles of positive energy leads to a fun working environment, happy clients and fantastic images every single time. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”

    – RICHARD FOWLER,     CREATIVE DIRECTOR,     TWENTYSEVEN BRAND & DESIGN.

  • “Bec’s work is of the highest quality and we are always provided with plenty of choice of images following her shoots, meaning that Bec is great value for money. Importantly we know that she will always try to help us at short notice if required, and she does all of this with humour and enthusiasm which makes working with Bec an enjoyable experience.”    

    - TANYA GARLAND,     MANAGING DIRECTOR,     COOL BLUE.

  • “We’ve worked with Bec on a couple of projects, and would highly recommend her. We work with a number of different photographers depending on the project, and I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Bec in the future. 5 stars!”

    - KEVIN ROBSON,     HEAD OF BUSINESS,     WONDERSTUFF STUDIO.

  • "The House of Hues worked alongside myself and the project team on the £9 million redevelopment programme of Preston Park Museum & Grounds. Delivering a series of shoots Bec was a pleasure to work with, treading the fine line between inspiration and practicality effortlessly.  I would not hesitate in recommending The House of Hues to organisations in search of a creative angle on their offer.”

    - NICK SMITH,     DEVELOPMENT MANAGER,     MUSEUMS & HERITAGE, STOCKTON BOROUGH COUNCIL.

  • "Bec has a fine eye for detail and a super casual way of capturing it. Probably the broadest smile in the Northern hemisphere too. You can print that!”

    - DARYL CHADWICK,     PROPRIETOR,     CHADWICK & CO AT BARKER AND STONEHOUSE TEESSIDE.

  • "Bec is BRILLIANT!! We commissioned her to photograph food and architectural interiors of Lane 7 (our boutique bowling alley in Newcastle upon Tyne) and The Fox Hole Pub & Kitchen (our exciting pub refurb in Piercebridge) both when they were fresh out of the oven... and she SMASHED it!”

    - TIM WILKS,     OWNER,     LANE 7   

  • "Bec has an excellent skill set and is able to follow and deliver on any given brief. One of her notable talents is her ability to make people feel at ease when conducting shoots. Her rapport with people is excellent and I feel confident enough to allow Bec to conduct photoshoots without any supervision.”

    - MARK COULTHARD,     ASSISTANT MARKETING MANAGER,     NEWCASTLE COLLEGE.

  • "Bec is an all round good egg. A pleasure to work with, professional, reliable and very positive. It’s clear from the outset that Bec wants the best for her clients. She has a real passion for strong imagery and creativity, which shows in her work. Do yourself a favour and get Bec to take your next photos - you won’t be disappointed!"

    - SARAH GREENWELL,     DIRECTOR,     BIG LITTLE TOYS LTD. 

  • "We have worked with Bec for a number of years now and never fail to be delighted with the quality of work provided. Bec takes time to understand the brief and produces high quality imagery that is fresh and has 'stand out'. Not only that, she puts people at ease and is a real pleasure to work with. We recommend her very happily all the time. “    

    - SARAH HALL,     MANAGING DIRECTOR,     SARAH HALL CONSULTING LTD.

  • "I have worked with Bec for around 5 years and have commissioned her photography several times over that period. Her photography captures everything we need to communicate within our collateral and media. Bec is also fantastically nice to work with, giving direction and putting subjects at ease without them even knowing it."

    - GILLIAN SYMINGTON,     MARKETING & COMMS DIRECTOR,     NORTHUMBERLAND COLLEGE.

  • "Working with Bec from The House of Hues was fantastic and she was absolutely professional.  Her attention to detail and her passion to get the right shot for my business was excellent.”

    - PETE WILKINSON,     MULTI AWARD WINNING SPEAKER,     IRON MAN ATTITUDE

  • "Bec has been producing amazing work for me for a range of clients including five star hotels,  boutique bowling alleys and hip hostels, to editorial, PR, event and portrait shoots. Invariably it's her eye for the alternative that’s the shot which makes it for my client. Bec has an extremely likeable personality. When time is money, Bec’s greatest asset is one that money just cant buy.”

    - CHRISTIAN CERISOLA,     DIRECTOR,     GLUE PR.
