And she’s a lovely person to work with – and be photographed by.” (Helen Trevorrow - Managing Director of Green Row PR)

I can always count on Suzanne to take crisp, natural, vibrant photographs whenever we work together.” (Ruby Smart - Marketing Co-ordinator, Astrum Education)
"Suzanne is a truly excellent photographer, highly creative, able to respond brilliantly to a brief and always prepared to go that extra mile to get the best shots. Her timing to shoot at just the right moment is amazing and she always manages to find that unusual, extra special stand out shot which quite simply no-one else would be able to pick out." (Nick Capeling - Head of Digital Content, The Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House)
“Suzanne has a fantastic eye and a knack for capturing Chatham House events in their entirety, from key reactions during the event to the more informal and humorous moments off stage. She is very discreet and will capture moments which feel intimate and sometimes quite personal without being intrusive. She’s a joy to work with.” (Clare Smyllie Senior Manager - Event Operations for Chatham House)
