“SIRA Studio has done the photography for me on about a dozen medium to large award ceremonies – everything from the biggest bridal awards gathering to events for the housing, green, education and estate agency sectors. They are a great team, know exactly what’s needed and produce really creative work. When you are busy managing a big event you want to be reassured that your photographers know what they’re doing – with SIRA you are in really safe hands.”- Event Director, Ocean Media/SEAFA

“Fantastic images as usual, thanks so much,” - Communities Outreach, Royal Horticultural Society.

“We found dealing with Simon and Rachael at SiRAstudio to be a real pleasure and were delighted with the results, which were produced on time and in line with expectations. Originally we had a vague rather than specific idea of what we wanted from a corporate portrait, but Rachael took the time to discuss and understand our requirements offering constructive advice, based on her experience, on how best to achieve the final results with which were very pleased. I would have no hesitation in recommending SiRAstudio to others.”
- Si Recruitment

“We have used Rachael and Simon on two projects now and will continue to use them in the future. They have proven to be professional, creative and a huge amount of fun to work with. The photography makes the site look great. Thank you.

Architectural photography, PR, copy writing, event management and awards submissions

“The ongoing support we have had from SIRA Studio throughout this whole project has been fantastic. No job has been too small or too big for them to come on site and deal with on our behalf. This photo journal of the Bramall Learning Centre project is already proving to be a really useful tool but also a wonderful record of the many people who were involved in the project in their many different ways.”

Photography and video, event organisation and PR package

Thank you to you and all the staff for making us welcome and for the organisation of the day. I have had a lot of positive feedback and getting out onto farm makes a real difference to a four day conference especially for a group of livestock vets and sales people. - Business Development Manager, Zoetis.

“I have no hesitation in recommending SiRAstudio. Over the past decade, on projects as diverse as event management for The UEFA Champions League, major conferences and events management for our global audience, through to producing numerous corporate videos and photo assignments around the world, Rachael and Simon have always over delivered, on time and in budget. That rare combination is made more pleasurable as the ease of doing business with SiRA always makes projects notable – something only people who naturally go the ‘extra mile’ can bring to your results.” - Global Marketing Director, Benchmark Holdings

“The event was very much driven forward and masterminded by Rachael; her persistence and attention to detail made the events run very smoothly on the day and I would like specific thanks and congratulations to go to her as well as to the remainder of the organising team”
– Fund Raising Steering Group, RHS Learning Centre and Library, RHS Garden Harlow Carr
