James Bastable did a fantastic job for Interserve Construction when we built the new NHS Nightingale Hospital Birmingham at the NEC in just nine days. James attended the building site when our team were working at racing speed to capture our work for video. James worked during the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing was observed throughout, nevertheless he delivered an outstanding suite of images and a video which we have shared extensively on social media. I couldn’t recommend James more highly as a photographer.

Director of Industrial and Logistics
We used James to undertake a promotional video, including drone and still photography which formed part of the marketing collateral for a large distribution facility in Corby. The end results are very good and his ability to understand what was required made the whole process seamless with his flexible approach. The project was turned around quickly with minimal fuss allowing us to accelerate the marketing and hit the clients deadline.
James started working with us on our brand relaunch in 2018 and we were really pleased with the quality of his work and adherence to brief. A personable guy, he engaged with our manufacturing team right from the start and worked with them to stage the required shots. More than happy to recommend James’ services and look forward to working closely with him once more on some new project we have planned for this year.
