It’s always great to work with Sarah - very efficient with all aspects of production and lovely to have on set. Sarah is brilliant with clients and crew and is always on hand with help and lots of positive energy.
She also has a talent for casting excellent models and has a great eye for finding exactly the right locations - I would definitely recommend for any stills or film shoot. 5 stars!

I recently worked with Sarah on an all singing and all dancing stills and video shoot for a leading Edinburgh advertising agency. The shoot was 5 days, 15 locations - with 2- 4 location changes per day, 20 plus models, hair and make, styling and props. The shoot was really busy and hard work... but due to seamless production and good creative direction we got outstanding results. Sarah was hit with every production curve ball in the book…but still prevailed. She is calm, well organised, patient, creative, witty and horrendously good looking! No.1 choice for production in Scotland in my book.

I have worked with Sarah for many years now and very much hope to continue working with her for years to come. She is not only extremely good at what she does she makes life on set fun. She can work to tight deadlines and helps to find solutions when our request is a little too unrealistic or when problems arise. She is hard working, very organised and very personable which promotes an efficient easy going atmosphere on set. Her relationships with crew members is second to none and I haven't found one person that doesn't smile when you mention her name. Which is a recommendation in itself.
Jill Mitchell - Producer, Leith Agency
I’m always much happier if I know Sarah is producing on my shoots as it lets me totally concentrate on just the photography. With all her years of experience she understands the shooting process so well that I can rely on her to build a complex shooting schedule and costings on my behalf. She has all the industry contacts which means she can comfortably take care of every element of the production including models, catering, styling, locations, permits and of course the inevitable last minute curve balls! And lets not forget she’s really good company and manages to keep everyone in good spirits, even after many long days of shooting. I can’t recommend her enough.

I had the pleasure of working with Sarah on a shoot and she was superb. Even under tight timings, budgets and unusual requests Sarah projects an air of total calmness. Nothing is ever a problem! I couldn't recommend her highly enough and look forward to working with her again in the future.
Sheryl Thomson - Creative Director, Union Direct
We have been working with Sarah for the last year on various shoots around the country for the re-positioned Standard Life brand. From the first meeting we knew we were in safe hands and she managed everything from model and location selection, crew and transport organisation, last minute changes of plans and even food and drink requests with absolute aplomb.
She has made every shoot a pleasure to be on, juggling the various demands of agency, client and crew while herself still being a delight. Most important of all, she always, always delivers. Thank you Sarah!
Jennie Robertson, Account Director, Emperor
I had the pleasure of working with Sarah recently on a photo-shoot for a major client. Our shoot timescales were tight but Sarah sprung into action and had everything from wardrobe options, cast and props under control in no time. Sarah is a professional but also personable, her attention to detail is fantastic and she has drive and determination in spades. I would have no hesitation in working with her again regardless of scope or scale of the project.
Caroline Cairns - Account Director, Union
No matter the scale of project – from hi-end fashion for M&S Bank to a quick studio shoot for VELUX – Sarah applies the same exacting detail. This is exactly what I look for in a producer. That and a killer sense of humour. Sarah is a swan. I have never sensed panic, even on the most testing of projects. She never brings problems. Only ever solutions… I love working with her.
Susan Anderson - Head of Art, StoryUK
From end to end Sarah manages the whole production process seamlessly. She is a born juggler – and can deal with whatever is thrown at her. She also understands creative work and the need to deliver on time and on budget. A fabulous combination. Sarah is an absolute joy to work with and I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Lesley Dick - Client Services Director, StoryUK
Sarah was brought in to manage our brand photography refresh. It was important to us that our staff members featured in the images and Sarah’s relaxed and friendly presence made an otherwise daunting experience feel natural and enjoyable for our first time models. The client is well and truly at the centre of every decision, with a team of experts carefully selected based on our needs. In the lead up to the shoot itself Sarah demonstrated complete flexibility in the face of changing requirements and circumstances. You quickly come to trust that every last detail is being taken care of for you, leaving you able to relax and wait for the great output to arrive in your inbox. I would not hesitate to recommend Sarah for other jobs and hope to work with her again in the near future.
