Some feedback from our customers
Ardtara Country House Hotel
"We are delighted with the images that Bradley and Marie took for us. They capture the essence of Ardtara perfectly and not only fulfilled the brief, but surpassed our expectations. Marie's eye for detail and ability to stage a picture, combined with Bradley's thoroughness in getting the ideal shot are evident in the finished photos. The fact that they worked so unobtrusively and professionally shows that they really know their stuff. Definitely money well spent."

We’ve worked on a couple of shoots now with Marie and Bradley, each time giving them a significant challenge, on each occasion they embraced the challenge fully. As a new brand producing fabrics for interiors, beautiful photography is essential for us to promote the brand and grow our business. The preliminary work and time Marie takes is invaluable, taking the time to get to know our new products and consider ways to show them in the best light, not to mention her ‘library’ of beautiful objects and accessories to style the images beautifully. For us a wide variety of shots on each shoot is key, from room set ups to details and product shots for uses ranging from our website, advertising, press and social media. It’s fair to say Marie’s eye for detail is impeccable and with her knowledge of UK and Irish interior publications she understands how to create and style shots for all these forms of media.
Bradley is an outstanding photographer who manages to combine the the time the technical requirements photography takes with our need to cover multiple set ups in a short period of time. We particularly loved working with him on the outdoor shoot we did at the Dark Hedges, where Bradley’s experience made sure we got beautiful dawn shots without being interrupted at this tourist hotspot. As a team to work with we could not have found better. Together they produce a calm and enjoyable environment while producing a quality and extensive body of work, making our shoots amongst the most enjoyable days of our year.

Lilac Tree Cottage
"I had the pleasure of working with Marie and Stuart when they came to photograph Lilac Tree Cottage, in Greyabbey. I was looking for a portfolio of images to publicise the cottage as a holiday rental and I could not be more delighted with the result - the photographs were top class. Not only were they both incredibly professional, friendly and down to earth but were really tuned in to what I wanted and interpreted my needs perfectly.
I have a number of holiday rental properties so I know all too well the difference top quality photographs can make. Lilac Tree Cottage receives more "hits" than any of our other properties and I have even had emails from around the world simply to compliment me on how beautiful and enticing the cottage looks! The property has been well received and is booked most of the time, in fact I am now taking bookings over a year in advance! I have Marie and Stuart to thank for that. I could not recommend them highly enough"
The season was changing to summer and my husband Andrew and I both knew that it was time for a facelift of our Windsor Townhouse Belfast website. The business, a holiday rental, self-catering 4 bedroom, 4* accommodation wasn't being showcased to its full online potential. In a prime location of Malone/Queens Quarter of Belfast, Northern Ireland we knew our business could achieve a better turnover. Our aim was to take it from 64% occupancy to 70% in a year.
I'd always admired how my friend Janet had managed to market her properties so beautifully and discovered that Marie was the key person who had both styled her houses and organised her photo shoots. Would Marie be interested in such a small and insignificant property such as ours I asked myself? I deliberated for months about asking her to work her charm on Windsor Townhouse Belfast (www.windsortownhousebelfast.com) and eventually I plucked up the courage to pick up the phone. At that moment I realised that for Marie nothing was impossible and she was bursting with enthusiasm about the prospect of a photoshoot at our place. We talked for a long time about the house, props, styling and photographs. We also talked about our marketing budget and she advised about what would work for us within that range. It took us less than 24 hours to decide that we'd like to have Bradley Quinn come take the pictures as we loved what we saw on his website.
In no time it was all happening with Marie on styling and props, Bradley armed with camera and lights and Andrew and myself with a pair of helping hands each we were all there on the day.
We promised we'd not get in the way of Marie and Bradley but rather enjoy, with curious fascination, watching these two professionals at work. It was amazing to watch Marie just shift a glass 6 centimetres to the right, re-position flowers in a vase or place a piece of luggage strategically on the floor of a bedroom and then signal for Bradley to come in for the shot. It was with ease and great skill that every picture was taken so precisely. It was evident to us that Marie and Bradley were very happy working together and so it made our day as a whole a very enjoyable experience.
When Bradley emailed through the final photographs, we were amazed and delighted at the images he'd created and without hesitation uploaded them to all our advertising websites. What a difference a day makes! Immediately we were receiving new enquiries and by mid summer we were taking unprecedented bookings. From August to October 2016 we took 28 bookings and that's a 211% increase on the same period in 2015 when we took just 9. Our occupancy hit 99% for the month of October! It just goes to show that investing in professional styling and photography for your property, business venture or project can result in very positive results.
Overall Marie and Bradley were fantastic to work with. From the first phone call, the day of work itself through to prompt receipt of the finished work of art it was a complete pleasure dealing with them. Thank you so much for everything and especially for taking our business to another level.
Dear Marie, thank you so much for coming to take what are extremely professional photography shots of my property.
It was a truly great day as I watched you all at work from the sidelines.
Bradley, Jamie and Yourself arrived well organised and were very respectful around the house.
I would highly recommend NCVision : You all did an amazing job, are a team full of cutting edge talent, dedication and passion for photography and styling.
The photos were superb and will boost marketing the sale of my property.
