Tony did an absolutely brilliant job capturing the quality of our work in Cirencester. He was quick, polite and always available to answer any of our questions as and when. We’ll be using him regularly from now on. Highly recommended.

Nellie & Dove - Deddington

Anthony has taken some stunning photos of our boutique for us to use in adverts and marketing. He arrived early to familiarise himself with the shop and snapped away including involving some willing customers, which was an added bonus for us (he went through the images with the customers, and saved their favourites for our use). 
It's refreshing to see professional photos after so many of our attempts! We will definitely book Anthony again, when our shop doubles in size. Helen Spencer, Nellie & Dove, Deddington.

Andy & Michelle Barnett - Wedding

Wow! What can I say... Tony has been so attentive to details. From start to finish he has listened and worked with us on every aspect so far. Extremely helpful and the communication has been faultless. We had a pre wedding shoot recently which I have to say was a wonderful experience. Tony is able to capture so much detail and creates very natural shots. He works with you and makes you feel totally at ease. The drone footage was spectacular... a definite must have!! We really can't wait for our special day to see what he creates. I would have no hesitation whatsoever if recommending Tony. Absolutely stunning photography and a wealth of knowledge.

A brilliant tour of the Cotswolds for beginners and experienced photographers alike and a definite must for landscape enthusiasts and lovers of the Cotswolds

Kirk & Melanie Smith - Wedding

We met with Tony over a year ago we're we had a photo shoot, this was a great way to get to know each other and decide on the best way to have our photographs for our wedding. Tony was keen to know exactly what we wanted and what we wasn't so keen on. In the run up to the wedding, Tony was always available to answer any questions I had and put me at ease. He is such a lovely guy and we had the photos within a week after the wedding which was just amazing. All photos were gorgeous, everything we imagined plus more, we are so so pleased with them and all our guests have said just how beautiful they are. Tony even got into the river to take photos of us on a bridge, he really will go the extra mile making sure you get the perfect photos. I couldn't recommend him enough, you won't be disappointed.

JOJOE O’NEIL OWNERS DAY - EVENT

We had Anthony from Anthony Paul Photography in charge of photographs for our owners day last Sunday. Having only met him on the day, he understood completely what pictures we needed and put us at ease as he was so professional in what he did. We hardly knew Anthony was in attendance such was his ease at floating around and taking hundreds of different pictures that we will use in the coming years to send to owners, post on our website or for social media

Cotswold tour 4 hours

Anthony, Tour was very well organised and you are second to none when it comes to hosting and photography. I would definitely recommend 'The Picture Taker' to anyone hoping to improve your photography skill set, listen to Anthony about photography as art, take great photos of Cotswold's and above all explore the hidden jewels of Cotswold's in the comforts of a 4 X 4. 
Not only did 'The Picture Taker' show me all of the best photo spots, Anthony guided me in terms of camera settings, location, lighting, exposure, leading lines and more to capture stunning photos of Cotswold's. The best thing about this tour is you can continue to use the knowledge going forward. 
Thank you The Picture Taker, for your enthusiasm and willingness to share your passion and knowledge of photography.
