I love working with people from all walks of life. I work with small business owners, famous faces, MDs and staff at big corporates, charities, PR companies, event organisers, musicians, happy couples and folk like myself who are owned by animals. Here are a few testimonials from my clients.
Victoria Nicol [LinkedIn Recommendation]
"Julie's superpower really is making you feel incredibly at ease in front of the camera. Julie made me feel fully comfortable during the shoot and we had a good laugh too, which made the experience all the more pleasant. I loved my photos. I contacted Julie in the first place to do my LinkedIn photos as she was recommended to me through my network and I now, in turn, would certainly recommend Julie if you're looking for a professional photo that you can showcase proudly."
Gary Houlton [LinkedIn Recommendation]
"I had the pleasure of using Julie's photography service recently for some business shots - I used the VIP package. Have to say that the service that Julie gives, from start to finish, is absolutely brilliant. Totally put me at ease and produced some great photos that will definitely help me promote myself (and she didn't even need to photoshop out my belly........ I hope???). Julie, you're a genius!! Thank you."
"In a world where everyone claims to be a photographer, because it's deceptively easy, Julie's work stands out. The factor that sets great photographers apart is getting striking images in challenging circumstances and Julie has a great skill for doing that, drawing on a wealth of knowledge and technical wizardry to achieve great results every time. And she's fast, editing and delivering projects quickly and without fuss."
"I booked Julie to take headshot images of a new client so their imagery was consistent. Julie was professional, adapted to the situation and secured great shots that both the client and I were impressed by. Her turnaround time was also impressive and I've no hesitation in recommending her for natural corporate photography."
"I've worked with Juliebee on a number of projects over the last few years, most notably the launch events for both of my books. Julie has covered both these events professionally and expertly, getting all the shots we need while being unobtrusive and discrete. I have no hesitation in recommending her services for these types of events and would suggest you give her a call for a chat if you are looking for someone who is dependable, professional and provides you with a quality finished product."
"Julie has been looking after my professional portraits since I first became self employed and it is by far one of the best decisions, and best investments I have made. Julie is seriously great to work with, knows how to relax her subjects in front of the camera and is MORE than generous with her time, not only on the shoot, but the effort she goes to afterwards with editing, and explaining the different formats that the photographs come in. I have also seen quite a bit of the wedding photography that Julie does and the best way I can put it is that Julie gets the moments that no one else can see. Julie not only has thorough knowledge of her craft, but is just so inspiring to listen to and watch as she works her way through a shoot. The bonus to all this is that she also has a wicked sense of humour."
"Julie has shot two book launch events for us and has been absolutely brilliant. She has a special talent for capturing the energy of the event in her interesting and creative photos and her engaging manner puts everyone at ease. If you are looking for a photographer for your event who is friendly, professional, creative and will deliver amazing photos, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Julie."
Anna MacKinnon (21st birthday party)
“I’m actually struggling to find the words to thank you!! We have just looked through and there isn’t a dry eye! Through laughter and love. They are absolutely stunning. Thank you so so so much for taking the pictures, you were so professional and everyone said it was great how you managed to just blend in. I will recommend you to anyone who asks!!”
Katherine Harrison, Harpist
Julie was the photographer for a gig I did last year. She was wonderful to work with. I was dreadfully nervous immediately before the start of the show but she managed to convince me to head outside for a few headshots. She worked so quickly - when I said I had 5 minutes, she took not a moment longer - and despite how apprehensive I felt, I was thrilled with the results. In fact one of her pictures is now the main feature photo on my website, I look like me in a way I never thought I could. I’d booked her to document my show – it was a very small, dark venue but she captured some tremendous moments of my performance, and she went far beyond my initial vague brief of ‘a few photos of my show please.’ She worked so quietly and subtly, I barely noticed her while I was performing.
Martin Young [Google Review]
"Julie did some corporate headshots for me a few years ago and her ability to make me feel comfortable and produce great photos blew me away. So much so, that I asked her to be my wedding photographer. All the guests were made to feel at ease and actually enjoyed having their photos taken in the rain. The photos of my wife and I are incredible and are the perfect reminder of our happy day. Julie is awesome, please don't hesitate to hire her!"
"The Gaelic Books Council has used Julie to record the highlights of our annual literary awards ceremony. Her photographs are excellent and really capture the whole essence of the evening. The most remarkable thing is that you are barely aware that she is even in the room and yet she still manages to take sensational shots from a variety of angles. There are no intrusive posed shots (unless we specifically requested prize winner shots at the end of the event). She is professional, reliable and very reasonable and we cannot recommend her highly enough."
Matthew Marley [Google Review]
"Amazing work! Would highly recommend Julie she did our wedding photos and we were absolutely over the moon with them."
"Julie is a brilliant photographer who uses her relaxed approach to build rapport quickly and bring out the best in her subjects with ease. She made taking business photos not only painless but enjoyable, with excellent results. I highly recommend her work."
Roz Malcolm, CBES
"Julie is extremely responsive and very professional. During the projects she has provided photography for me on, she interacts with the subject and/or event guests making for very natural and realistic shots. I would highly recommend Julie if you are looking for a photographer with a bubbly personality, to provide event or portrait shots."
Callum Ogden, Citizens Advice Edinburgh
"Julie worked with Citizens Advice Edinburgh to help us create a library of stock photos for use in our promotional material and annual reports. Julie’s friendly professionalism and relaxed approach enabled her to work very well in capturing a variety of photos our staff, volunteers, and indeed some of our clients in a range of settings with often challenging lighting conditions. Julie created a fantastic range of high quality photos from a variety of our locations over the course of a single afternoon - we would not hesitate at all in recommending Julie to other charities."
Veronica Regan, The Beardmore Hotel & Conference Centre
"Julie has done some great work for The Beardmore Hotel & Conference Centre, from large business conferences to individual head shots; formal and relaxed. She works hard to capture the right people images whilst almost remaining invisible!"
Dave Scott, Nil by Mouth (charity)
"Our team worked with Julie late last year. Made us all feel at ease - even when I had to have my photos taken in middle of Buchanan St! Quality and price hard to beat (and she even slipped me a Tenner to write this!). Couldn't recommend her highly enough."
[Oi! Cheeky client alert. Declaration to my accountant: no money changed hands for this review.]
"In October, Julie came recommended to me as an excellent portrait photographer. I'd never thought of using a professional but timing was perfect as I wanted to rebrand my LinkedIn page with an appropriate photo so commissioned Julie with the unenviable task of photographing the real me! I was apprehensive at first as I hate having my picture taken, but when Julie arrived at my home, she instantly made me feel at ease, we talked about what kind of photo I had in mind, we shared info re our backgrounds and found a room in my house where there was good light. She then took some practice shots from various angles to ensure she was capturing the look I wanted. It was incredible how she could tell a forced smile from a real smile in a very short time! Turns out it was more fun that the chore I thought it would be and a great investment having a portfolio I can use for all social media occasions."
Marcus Dean, Abbey Mill Business Centre
"I have to thank you for an excellent range of pictures, by far the best yet and quite unexpected angles. Well done."
Madeleine O'Brien, Institute of Healthcare Management Scotland
"I was talking about you last night... we all agree your photos are amazing! Thank you for being so accommodating, helpful and professional. It was great having you on board for this year’s conference. Look forward to working with you again."
Clare McLeod, Intermezzo Arts
Clare's headshots prompted many compliments on Facebook. This was her reply: "It's all down to the talented Julie Broadfoot and cheaper than surgery."
Kate McCheyne, Glasgow 2014
"We loved the pics and have used them already at our press conference."
Marianne Mair (children's photoshoot)
"Thanks so much for the photos – they are great and a lovely record of the Oz visit"
Claire Cunningham, The Digital Health Institute
"Julie provided photography services for our New Frontiers event in May 2014. Following a recommendation, Julie lived up to the positive comments and produced great work for us. She was punctual, worked well with our team and provided high quality work."
Serena Mariani, Mackay Hannah
"Great photos! Julie was the official photographer for conference for PAs in Scotland, ACES 2014, and she captured every moment of the event. Exceptional photographs of both our speakers, delegates and exhibitors. Thank you, Julie!"
"Julie was amazing at scouting out suitable locations that would contrast well with my website and corporate ID. She totally understood what I was looking to achieve. I am delighted with the results. However it was not easy to choose which ones to have as they were all so good. She was excellent at a mixture of product and head shots."
"I've worked professionally with scores of photographers over the years and Julie is one of the handful that I would personally recommend as a portrait photographer. Julie has a talent for bringing out the natural personality and best features of her subjects - without the need for photoshop etc trickery! She's really easy to work with and creates a comfortable environment as she understands that most people DETEST being snapped/papped and particularly having to 'pose'."
Stewart Lochrie, Caledonian Learner Driver Training
"I hired Julie to shoot the photography for my new website having got to know her through Twitter (as you do). The whole experience was fun, professional and stress free, and the results are fantastic. She was even happy to help out with a bit of editing long after the original shots had been handed over. I'd happily recommend Julie, and will definitely be using her services again when it's time to freshen things up."
Kev O'Neil, 29 Studios
"Julie was a delight to work with. A highly professional photography service from project brief to final delivery. On-time and excellent value. I would thoroughly recommend Julie to all my business contacts."
"Thanks to your brilliant photography we're never short of great images of the team or the office!"
Tricia Fox, Volpa (PR for St Andrews Aquarium and The Enchanted Forest)
"LOVE Julie's work. She's not scared to take on snakes, spiders, meerkats, seals, or penguins - basically nothing sends her running! And her pictures are fantastic too. A gem of a photographer to work with."
Ian Hembrow, Senior Consultant, Creative Bridge
"I worked alongside Julie on an extended photoshoot over several days for a housing association client in the West End of Glasgow. She completely 'got' our brief straight away, and delivered probably the best people and local scene photography I've ever seen. Apart from really boosting the quality of the publications, showreel and website we were producing, the client has been able to use her pictures in lots of other ways to promote their work. Julie's understanding as a copywriter was invaluable - she really understood the link between the images and our words. Above all, she's a fun, flexible and really nice person to know and work with. I can't recommend her highly enough."
Morag Malloy, Fission Creative and Scottish Women in Business
"I've now commissioned Julie twice to take corporate shots and portraits at Fission Creative, as well as recommending her and working with her on shoots for some of Fission's clients and Scottish Women in Business. Julie's portraits are fantastic; I believe her when she says that she doesn't retouch the nasties out, but it still amazes me when she comes back with huge numbers of great images. I've often been spoiled for choice. Julie understands her photography clients, understands their objectives and then goes the extra mile to find imagery and compositions which support these. Not only can she manage to put awkward people like me at ease on a shoot, but she has a knack of making me smile when I see the finished results too."
Rosemary Mackenzie, Mellow Parenting
"Wow! There are some really really good photos in there! What a fantastic job you did!"
Chris Connick, Prezi
"Thank you for making the experience painless, was bizarrely quite good fun."
Jan Macleod, Women's Support Project
"I am writing to thank you for the absolutely wonderful album of photographs from our recent fundraising lunch for Women's Support Project. You really caught the mood of the event, including guests, hosts, raffle prize winners, and the impressive venue in Oran Mor. It is good to have the 'before' and 'after' shots, and also various images which we wouldn't necessarily have thought of capturing, such as the shot of the memorial card. Thanks also for your very flexible approach... it's not easy trying to organise group photos at such a busy event and we really appreciated your easy going and unobtrusive approach. Thanks again and best wishes in your work. We would certainly be happy to recommend you!"
Amy McDonald, Creative Training Unlimited
"MASSIVE THANK YOU for all your fab work today."
"Big thanks Julie – they are aaaaamazing. Thank you."
Ruth Cameron, Armadillojam
"Like many people I don't enjoy being photographed however it was a relaxed and 'almost' enjoyable experience being photographed by Julie. Her informal and approachable personality on the day was backed by a professional attitude and creativity to produce exactly what was required. I have had no hesitation recommending her to other contacts and will be happy to make use of her skills for future projects."
"I’m a bit miffed that you asked Heather for a recommendation when, let’s face it, I was the subject of the pictures! Anyway, here’s what I think... I love getting my picture taken by my friend JulieB, because she’s great fun to work with. She throws balls and makes funny noises and crawls on the floor, all just to get a fabulous picture of my fabulous self! And the results are brilliant – I love the pictures of me with my ball and running around, and there are some nice gentle ones too with flowers in the garden. I can’t wait for the next time!! *woof*"
