Alison Ball – I commissioned Alison to take images for my website and a new product line. I am really pleased with the professional sharp clear images that really compliment my work and show how different it is . She also made a video that summarised my work which has been really popular with clients and she has also generously given me time and advice to improve my own photography. Thank you Alison. - Sarah Trenchard
I have admired Alison's work for some time so when I decided to have my website updated it was not hard to choose a photographer. Not only is Alison fun to work with but she is able to see you from such a different perspective that gives a complete new dimension to you and your business. The depth of knowledge and creative flair means that you don't have to concern yourself with anything. The result is exceptional. Thank you Alison for making me stand out from the crowd!! - Sally Phillips
Alison came to take some "in action" shots of me running a workshop that are needed for publicity purposes. She stayed for about an hour taking some post group shops, and a load of "inaction" shops. The resulting photos were superb quality and one of them even make me look like a model (quite an achievement!).
Alison was very unobtrusive whilst she was taking the photographs when I was running my workshop, and also great value will stop I would definitely be using our sin again, and I would highly recommend her (in fact already have!) - Kim O'Rourke
Alison, Lemon Photographic came along to do a shoot for a cheese website. Our initial talk as to what we would do was great, as it did not want standard photos of our cheese team. A picnic idea evolved in the field with the cows and the cheese makers.
It was a fun day; I think that shows in the photos. Alison was very easy to work with and lead us to the end result! - Liz Godsell
Having hired Lemon Photographic on a few occasions recently, I can honestly say Alison is exceptional in her field. She thinks outside the box, produces excellent results and is an absolute pleasure to work with. Would have no hesitation in recommending. - Paul J
I was looking for a photographer to produce some high quality product shots of the new Henry Wag dog bed to use on the packaging and the website. I was concerned that it would be difficult to get good shots because the product is partly made partly of fabric. However the results were premium quality with pin point focus at all points on the image. Alison also undertook some lifestyle photography shots which involved a large number of dogs. Her professionalism and patience paid off with some great images which are now successfully being used within our marketing material. I will be asking Alison to photograph the new products we are developing for 2014. - Grantley Rogers
We first asked Alison to help us with some informal photographs of our three teenage boys about five years ago, since then she's helped us with a number of photographs for our website and brochure. She has done both product and lifestyle photographs for us and she has always interpreted what was both wanted and needed.
This combined with an eye for composition and being realistic about timescales makes the whole task easy we wholeheartedly recommend her. - Caroline and Guy Bodger
Alison has produced an excellent portfolio of photos for myself, my clinic and some of the products I use. They are quite beautiful with unusual, creative edge, which make them stand out above the usual standards. The quality is excellent and formatted so they can be used with ease, whether on website or printed literature. Alison is very professional in her approach makes the whole process easy and fun. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a photographer for professional or personal photos. - Wendy Guilfoyle
We were personally recommended to use Alison's photographic services and very pleased with the results.
Alison came out to our office, offered lots of suggestions for better pictures and both a host of impressive equipment! We really like the photos and it definitely improved our website. Highly recommended. - Ben Jeffrey,
