We have collaborated with Chris on several projects for our clients over the years and he has always done an amazing job! Here at Wallbreaker, we pride ourselves on our reputation. It’s always a risky business working with a third-party as they are basically representative of our brand and one bad experience can undo a strong working relationship that may have taken years to cultivate.

Chris, however, is a talented photographer who we have full faith in and completely trust our clients in his hands. Chris doesn’t just simply turn up with a camera and take photos. He gets to know our clients, their needs and suggests appropriate solutions to their problems. Chris understands the importance of clear communication and has an excellent eye for detail.

Chris not only photographs our clients’ projects but also photographs images for our promotional material as well. He’s ‘saved our bacon’ on several occasions by helping us with very last-minute projects, without complaint.

If anyone ever asks for a recommendation for a photographer, I will always give them Chris’s business card, I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Thanks for all your hard work, Chris!

Ash Wilks - Wallbreaker

Chris took charge of the photography for our Directors’ Conference in Nottingham. From the first contact, Chris was fantastic and proved a calming influence throughout the event. We gave a brief regarding certain shots to be taken, and Chris completed this and more, providing us with an extensive gallery capturing the event. The photo quality was exceptional and we would not hesitate to hire him again in the future.

Simon McGuinness - BNI UK & Ireland

It was great working with you again; you make things so easy to deal with and just get on and always produce such wonderful shots.

Emma Rowitt - Lincolnshire Music Service

I’ve worked with Chris since the very early stages of my career as work experience at the Lincolnshire Echo, and from the very start of getting to know him I have found him to be supremely dedicated and professional in everything he does.

Chris is my go-to photographer, regardless of location. He is thorough when dealing with a brief, but always provides more than you expect. His passion and dedication are strong points, but above all, he knows how to use a camera, too. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

Paul Smith - Royal Mail

I just wanted to put pen to paper to thank you for your services and help working on the FISH 4 Jobs campaign we created, the client was highly delighted with your work and the campaign has been very successful for them.

The campaign has gone national and your images have appeared on all media from billboards to bus wraps and from websites to national press.  We would be delighted to recommend you when ever possible to all our contacts in the future.

Shaun Cole - Born Agency

“Transported hired Chris Vaughan to photograph the launch event for our new Arts and Business programme. The high profile event included the unveiling of Fenland Folk, Transported’s second art on lorries project with Freshlinc, designed by Electric Egg, and of the Chimes, a sculpture by Ben Coode Adams, commissioned by Transported, Springfields Horticultural Society, artsNK and Lincolnshire County Council.

We required high quality, professional photographs for follow up press in local and regional media outlets, and hired Chris based on his photographs at the Lincolnshire games, and positive reviews from his website.

Chris was great to work with – he was friendly and professional with guests and staff. He was also thorough and made sure all artworks, speeches and other significant moments were recorded. We received images to be used on social media on the day, and a full set of high-res images two days later. We are happy with the photographs that Chris has produced and would definitely recommend him!”

Grace Osbourne - Arts and Marketing Coordinator for Transported, Creative People and Places Programme for Boston Borough and South Holland

Chris is a fantastic photographer and is able to send through live photos during the events allowing you to tweet, etc and use immediately. I would thoroughly recommend him if yourselves or your clients are looking for a photographer.

Zoe Summerfield - Millward

We really appreciated your help and you’ve captured exactly what we wanted. Brief nailed!

Rob Jones - Bishop Grosseteste University

Chris is the go-to photographer for Lincolnshire Sport. He has photographed a variety of projects for us and he always produces high quality, engaging shots, no matter the situation.

Due to the innovative way he works, the photographs Chris takes are immediately available, which is perfect for live events we hold, like the Lincolnshire School Games and the Primary PE and Sport Conference. It also means we can access them from anywhere within seconds of them being taken and they’re readily available after an event too.

His professional, friendly personality makes Chris easy to get along with and his customer service is second to none. Overall, Chris is a fantastic photographer who we’d thoroughly recommend to anyone.

Janet Inman - Lincolnshire Sport

I have worked with Chris on a number of projects in both the sport and education sector. Chris is a pleasure to work with and I have always been very happy with the end product and the efficiency of his service. Chris offers great advice not just on how to capture the best images for the shoot itself but also supports in generating new ideas and how best to apply them for a specific project.


Marc Rhodes - MR7 Marketing

We have used Chris for a couple of years now for various photo shoots for Starkey&Brown estate agents and have found him to be excellent. He takes time to listen to what you need and delivers the results. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

David Starkey - Starkey&Brown

Great Photos & Enjoyable Too!

In over 20 years of being in business and 5 of those working successfully with clients as a Business Coach, I have always valued high levels of customer service and persistence on deliver of product.  As I work 1-2-1 with small and large companies to increase their profits, build a better team and gain more time from their business, I only surround myself with a trusted team and set of resource providers.

When I saw the age of my current marketing and social media photos, a feeling a dread crept in as I realised that a new photo shoot was necessary.  Having seen Chris’s photos I had no doubt he could provide the quality of photos that I needed.  But the dread of smiling in front of the camera was eased immediately when I spoke with Chris about the impending shoot.

During the photography process Chris was innovative in the types of shots and continued to put me at ease in front of his camera.  The equipment he had was first class and the facility to view the photos immediately on a larger screen was a huge help, adding to my confidence.  Overall it was actually an enjoyable experience and the photos were at the high standard I knew I could expect of Chris.

I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Chris at Chris Vaughan Photography to any of my contacts or those I meet.

Simon Meadows - Sterling Business Coaching

Many thanks to Chris Vaughan Photography for capturing the feel and highlights of Metro Blind Sports annual sporting celebration.

The quality and depth of coverage provided by Chris, really allowed us to show what blind and partially sighted athletes can achieve to all our main stakeholders and supporters.    

We now have a superb gallery of photos to dip into and demonstrate our work.

Chris was a real pleasure to work with, listening to our needs and offering solutions and suggestions to maximise our time together.  We will certainly look to use his services again and would highly recommend his professional approach, flexibility and expertise to anyone looking for a sports-specific photographer. Thank you Chris!

I have worked with Chris on many occasions with respect promotional events for the Post Office.  This has often involved dealing with MP’s.

Not only does Chris produce some fantastic photography he has really great interpersonal skills that adhere him to senior managers and key influencers.

Steve Bruckshaw - The Wild Workplace Ltd

Many of our staff were apprehensive about having their photographs taken. Chris was able to reassure and relax them and we are delighted with the excellent portraits produced which we now have online and provide a very professional image for us, We have no hesitation in recommending your services to any other companies looking to promote their business with high quality images.

Phil Davis - Stephenson's Insurance

We are a small firm of accountants that believe in profit maximising and tax minimising.

Last month we called upon Chris to take some photos of our team which were to be used on our new website.

Despite the significant uphill challenge in respect of the ugly mugs involved, Chris somehow managed to make us all look like Hollywood Superstars and they will now take pride of place on our website!!!

Andy Seymour - Harrison Seymour LLP

I met Chris at a networking meeting and immediately liked him. Redlime then asked him to undertake some photography at Leicestershire FA on behalf of a client. Chris’s customer service skills were excellent, he responded quickly to emails and continually kept us informed of the project status. The final result was some great photographs that have been used to support a client press release. Our client was very happy – which made us very happy.

Lesley Pashley - Redlime

Even though Chris was very busy, he managed to visit my business the following day and take all the required photos.  To my amazement the finished article appeared on my desk the day after the shoot.

The photos Chris took were exactly what I wanted.

Peter Frohmaier - S&P Garages

After getting my new venture up and running I needed something that was going to show the public what our facility was all about. Chris’s photography skills have certainly captured every aspect of the business. Chris is passionate, trustworthy and reliable – will continue to use Chris and happy to recommend to anybody.

Paul Cook - Frontier Physical Conditioning

Chris has carried out work for developmentplus on two very special occasions. Our organisation re-branded late in 2011 and Chris photographed our re-launch, his photo’s captured the mood of the event perfectly taking formal and informal pictures with great care. The second event was the launch of the Early Presentation of Cancer (EPOC) ‘Boobs & Balls’ campaign, which is aimed at young people to encourage them to self examine for any abnormal changes in their bodies, which could be cancer. Again Chris captured just the right feeling to match the campaign and we have used the photographs in many of our reports and at promotional events.

Jeanne Bain - developmentplus

Chris took photos of my practice for my website. The photos were fantastic, he took loads more than expected, and put loads of creativity into them.
