With the challenges facing us due to the covid pandemic, adapting and evolving was a must in order to help us survive. What better way to showcase our food than to get Neil Bankhurst with Purple Aura images in for a photo shoot!

Will in the store Neil had great ideas to capture the images in different ways in order for us to have many images to use on social media and promotions alike. Upon receiving the photos after meticulous editing by Neil – the wow factor is an understatement of how good the shots are. To capture 1 photo of our full english stottie, it has had a reach of 15000 across social media, had punters mouths drooling and rocketed sales by 1200% vs sales prior to the photo being used on social media only 3 weeks ago.

The Stottie Company thank Neil at Neil Bankhurst – Purple Aura Images and we’d happily recommend Purple Aura Images. We look forward to working with Neil in the future on specialist product ideas.

I chose to work with Neil, to create some social media images to promote my Personal Training Business. He took some fantastic shots and provided edits too, which have looked great on my pages. Friendly, supportive, and happy to help, Neil puts you at ease when he is behind the camera. He is full of ideas and has tons of experience and knowledge to help create the best shots for your business.

If you are looking for a great photographer for any occasion, Neil is the man to go to.
