I have worked with Simon for many years and just love what he does. His level of service always
exceeds my expectations!
When you close your eyes and envision yourself, your very best self; the version of you that you want the world to know, who do you see?
The person I view myself as is exactly who I saw, and felt, each time I got a peek of the images Simon was capturing.
Working alongside Simon is a transformational experience with benefits that reach so much further than a snapshot. I have found that genuinely seeing myself through Simon's photography has reignited my confidence as I begin a new career path and inspired me to be my best self every day.
This is an experience that I would recommend to anyone, at any life stage - you will love who you see looking back at you.
Simon makes being in front of the camera easy and fun. His passion for
what he does and general enthusiasm for life are infused into the
session. He doesn’t just take a picture, Simon is able to tune into
your energy and capture the unique beauty that you are. Something
special happens in the process of getting that perfect shot that
leaves you feeling more connected to who you are.
Life is busy. One can lose control and become out of touch with what is important. The sense of loss of self is not good. While it may seem an overstatement that a photo shoot could turn that around, the experience that Simon sets up is much more than a photo shoot. It begins with rejuvenation in the talented hands of the artists at Pink Lime Salon, then time in the photo studio. If you know Simon, you know his energetic charm. I couldn’t help but move toward a more relaxed and clear minded me – even with his camera endlessly clicking. From first glance and “holy cow who is that” to feeling good and settled in ones own skin. It was like remembering who I am. Thanks Simon! It was a great afternoon and definitely worth it.
Professional. Creative genius. Master. Artist. Simon Ratcliffe is not only an amazing photographer, he’s a stellar human with a clear mission to change the world one person at a time by helping them clearly see who they are and how others see them.
These [images] are fantastic!
Both Simon’s photographic processes and results are outstanding. I felt pampered, taken care of and completely known by Simon. Great experience!
It is a relaxing and enjoyable experience which is filled with laughter and chit-chat. Simon will bring your inner spark to the photo and gets the outstanding image for you.
It was wonderful working with you Simon! You make it easy to relax, enjoy the day, smile, laugh and have fun while you create the magic! You are amazing! Thank-you!
To truly retell the experience I had with Simon, I would need to write a full blog post. Simon captures more than just the outward image of people. When I look at my images, I see more than me. I see my HERwithin, the essence that makes me who I am. To be able to see that in an image is like being able to see the wind. The entire experience of hair and make up allowed me to shine as brightly on the outside as I do on the inside. Simon's talent speaks for itself. Thank you for sharing your talent and truly capturing my essence. I will return to you again and again.
I was a little intimidated by the whole process at first but I put my trust into Simon's hands and he did wonders. Simon and his colleagues at Pink Lime Studio really made the experience unique and truly enjoyable...and I now have a professional headshot that reflects my true self on top of that. Merci!
It was a really lovely experience. I can see it being transformational for many.
I have always felt tense in front of any camera and that pictures of me were rarely good. My photo shoot with Simon turned out to be an experience that was exciting and an adventure that I could not have anticipated. After the shoot, I did not know what to expect at the Reveal. I was not disappointed! Simon captured the many sides of how I see myself and I liked all of what I saw. That’s quite an accomplishment! Thank you Simon for an experience I will always remember.
The whole experience was totally pain free – it was fun and am so pleased with result.
