“I got to know Paul over several months whilst networking at the same venue. He is passionate about his subject, Photography, and has many years’ experience over a wide range of subject matter.
I am in the process of updating my website (www.msgd.co.uk) and had a particular garden which I wanted to show on it. Without hesitation I contacted Paul to visit the garden with me so that he could assess it from his view point.
Paul decided an early morning shoot would provide the best possible light for this garden; he was right, and the results speak for themselves.
Thank you so much for your professional and thoughtful photography Paul. I look forward to working with you again.”
Mary Stevenson BSc (Hort) MBALI, mary stevenson garden design
“We were on the lookout for a highly creative and top professional photographer who could not only capture great moments, but someone who would click with our team. After seeing Paul’s website and meeting him, I knew we had found the right person. Paul is down to earth, laid back, friendly, a great communicator and true professional. It has been a delight to work with him. During the free consultation he covered all aspects of the shoot, inquiring about the room, natural light and noted down our exact requirements.
On the day he arrived early to prepare whilst we were setting up our equipment. Our participants hadn’t previously met Paul, but he made them feel relaxed instantly in his presence. As others have mentioned, you don’t even realise that he is there during the shoot!
The photo’s we have had back from Paul are absolutely fantastic, he’s managed to capture all those perfect moments that we envisaged. I would recommend allowing Paul to have room for creative freedom, as he is a true artist as well as a photographer. The creative shots he supplied will add a unique edge to our website.
We will definitely be using Paul Ligas for all of our future photo shoots, a true professional and creative genius. Thanks Paul.”

“When I learned that I no longer had a photographer to do a substantial photo shoot for all Ceci Paolo’s Spring Summer Fashion Collection I flew into a panic. I had invested heavily in the season with a view to increasing sales through our website – but without good photographs for each garment that plan was doomed to failure. And then I met Paul Ligas!
“I was nervous that this might not be his thing, as I could see from his website that he was more of a creative photographer. Now at the end of the shoot, I couldn’t be happier. Paul has proved to be totally responsive, willing, professional and a great photographer. He puts so much thought and preparation into setting up each photo shoot that everything goes like clockwork. I look forward to working with him each new season.”

“It was a pleasure working with Paul. Having rarely worked with professional photographers in the past I didn’t know how to set up the day to make sure it all went smoothly but Paul asked all the right questions so I could set everything up in advance to make sure we got the most out of the time – which we did!
“Paul arrived early to ensure everything was ready (very much appreciated) and was able to get on with the photo shoot as soon as the chef started sending out the dishes. Paul was cool, calm and relaxed and a pleasure to work with. We are really pleased with the final product and would use Paul again and would recommend him to anyone.”
Julia Davies, Director Marketing & PR, The Cottage In The Wood
Work: Food photography
“Having worked in the past with professional photographers I had found them to be rather over bearing which meant that after a typical shoot one would come away feeling tense and tired, this of course showed in the finished product.
“On viewing Paul’s website I was pretty sure I had found what I was looking for, and I was proved right. Paul was an absolute delight to work with not at all obtrusive indeed when he was shooting during our rehearsal we were completely unaware of him, all of my band members felt very much at ease with him and are looking forward to working with him in the future as am I.
“The end result was a set of wonderfully evocative pictures capturing exactly the mood I was after, I have had many complements so far from those who have seen them. So thank you Paul from Eclectic.”
Terence Rowberry, Eclectic

“As a heating firm we have always struggled to visually portray our work in a way that does not appear dull, boring or ‘geeky’ to anyone who is not in our trade. Paul’s approach was completely different to ours – I take my hat off to anyone who can make a Hot Water Cylinder or Radiator the focal piece of a beautifully shot portrait. We were really pleased with the results of this first commission and quickly invited Paul to a second project we had completed. We turned to Paul again with the re-design of our website. Paul’s presentation skills were fundamental in the appearance of our new online presence.
“I would highly recommend the services of Paul Ligas without hesitation.”
Gavin Yeoman, Yeoman SW Ltd
“Paul has taken some brilliant photos of HOPE, capturing a range of rooms and facilities. He is professional, talented and has an excellent eye for detail. We’ve been delighted with his work and his ability to capture our space and its stunning views.”
Keeley Evans, Business Development Manager, The HOPE Centre
“We asked Paul to capture key elements of our charitable work so we could use the images in various publications and on our website. He did this brilliantly. He managed to capture some wonderful moments and we are still using the images now.”
Matt Bell, CEO, Exeter Community Initiatives
“We’re delighted with the creative photographs Paul took for us. They’ll be perfect for promoting Create IT Group. We started using them right away.”
Chris Clarke, Director, Create IT Group
“Well what can we say about Paul Ligas Photography… ABSOLUTELY BLOOMIN’ FANTASTIC!! He is the Mysterious Freakshow’s Official Photographer – we don’t go anywhere without him. Such a talented, creative and insightful chap, with an amazing eye for detail. Every photo-shoot has been such a laugh and a joy. When Paul has covered our Steampunk events he has the ability to blend into the background and take some fabulous documentary style photographs of artistes in action. Such diversity and creativity is rare in photographers these days but Paul Ligas has it in bucketfuls! RECOMMEND HIGHLY!!!
Fey Pink, The Mysterious Freakshow
“Paul captured some great moments for some unique photos, and he was good with the dogs! Just what we were after. He was responsive to our needs, and I’d definitely recommend him.”
Rachel Barkataki, Barko’s Pet Services
“Paul did a wonderfully varied series of high quality images around our farm. Attention grabbing and taken from unusual angles the images have been ideal to use in our marketing and branding. Paul listens well to the brief and applies his talent to come up with the goods!”
John Applegarth, Director, Mill House Farm
“We couldn’t be happier with the work that Paul has done for us, he had some great ideas and also listened to what we wanted out of the session, the images are just what we needed to help promote our business, would highly recommend.”
Marc Wood, Marc Wood Bespoke Joinery
“Thanks for taking on the event photography job for our charity event. You never quite know how things will turn out when you just do a Google search, but delighted to have found you. Really appreciated the prompt return of pictures and your willingness to discuss terms when we weren’t a standard client. You got the balance right between getting the shots we needed and making yourself unobtrusive. Thanks. We’ll certainly come back to you next time.”
