    When Stephen takes on an assignment you know it is in excellent hands. He constantly searches for quality, captures the key moments, works so well with those he is photographing. Put simply he is professional, helpful, accommodating, friendly and utterly reliable. A pleasure to work with.

    You want a committed, passionate, talented snapper for your project? Here is your man. Stephen is just about the most accommodating, personable and conscientious photog you could imagine. In my past-life I hired Stephen literally hundreds of times because I knew he would come up with the goods. Apart from that he is a genuinely good, empathetic, caring person with a passion for for his craft. He won't disappoint!

    I have had the pleasure of working with Stephen for many years for event, socials and fashion photography across many different clients. Stephen is extremely can do, willing and professional and turns his work around with lightening speed which is always so appreciated. He regularly outshines other photographers when working alongside him. I highly recommend his services.

    In my ten years as The Sunday Mail's Socials Editor, I have worked with countless photographers and I consider Stephen Archer to be one of the absolute best. Extremely professional, accommodating and efficient, Stephen also has an extremely keen sense of what works best on camera. A gifted photographer, Stephen is one of the friendliest people you will ever meet and is an absolute pleasure with which to work. It would not be possible to recommend him more highly.

    Testimonials Submitted by the photographer

    Judith Kerr, Journalist Brisbane Australia

    Taking photos was only a small part of the job Stephen capably took on when thrown in at the deep end. He aptly catalogued, filed and captioned his work which made life easy in a short-staffed but busy newsroom. Judith Kerr
