Community Shares Scotland employed Helen Barrington to photograph a number of launch events for our community projects. Not only was Helen easy to communicate with, extremely professional and resourceful but the photographs she took were perfect for their purpose. She captured a huge range of ideas and images - and we have been able to use them for a variety of on and offline publications and promotional materials. Many have proven to be truly iconic. We would highly recommend Helen and look forward to working with her in the future.

My wife and I just finished viewing the photographs from past Saturday. We are truly delighted - some of the photos are truly touching to me, and others are just plain cute. They really are exactly what I was hoping for and do a great job of capturing my family at a moment of enjoying being together. You have a real talent for capturing a genuine spirit. I am really so pleased to be able to share these with my family and am certain they will feel the same. Having these photos means a great deal to me personally, of course, and I want to thank you for an excellent job and helping to make it a very pleasant memory for us as well.
Regardless of the subject or location of the shoot, Helen manages to produce photos that clearly meet the brief. The pictures are always of a high quality, with great composition and lighting. Helen is both friendly and professional and brings her own creativity to each shoot she does.

I recently worked with Helen on a schools project, which involved capturing a range of images around Health and wellbeing. Throughout the process of organising and completing the project Helen kept in regular contact and was very willing to answer questions and to provide additional information. On each of the two days that we visited the schools Helen was enthusiastic about the job at hand and wasn’t afraid to get ‘stuck in’ to ensure that she was able to capture very creative and unique images. She was happy to take suggestions and to listen carefully to our requirements. My team and I were very impressed with the range of images that Helen provided. I will have no hesitation about recommending Helen and her excellent photography to my colleagues in the future.
Thank you so much for sharing the photos from today – they’re fantastic. Karen had said how great you were to work with and she could see why you had been so highly recommended.

They say a picture tells a thousand words. Helen's photos always tell exactly the story you need them to tell. I've worked with Helen putting together news, features and pr packages for papers ranging from the Daily Mail, Daily Record and Sunday Mail to organisations as varied as Cancer Research UK and Seafish. As one of Scotland's most experienced press photographers Helen has an artistic eye for exactly the perfect shot, while her easy manner ensures whoever she is taking photos of is always much more relaxed than they probably imagined they would be.
