We received a gift voucher for a photo shoot of our 6 month old puppy with Derek and couldn’t recommend enough! Derek was super professional, yet patient and friendly with us and our boy. Photographs turned out amazing. We were there about an hour and had a ball the entire time. The studio is lovely, with examples of Dereks work on the walls. We are now the proud owners of a lovely Trevi Fountain framed print. Love it. 5* service

We booked Derek for our baby girls first Christmas photo shoot and I couldn't recommend him enough. Very professional service and bags of patience dealing with a fidgety baby. Photos were exceptional quality and the backdrops added a unique touch. Will definitely book again in future for other shoots and I highly recommend Derek's services.

Booked my fur babies in for a photo shoot with Derek. Great communication from the start and really pleased with the finished edits. Dogs were allowed to run around and do their thing before the session started (although mine being wired to the moon didn't calm down any). Derek's wife kindly looked after each dog individually as the other had photos taken. All very relaxed and friendly. Would 100% recommend.
Wee tip though: make sure you bring plenty of yummy treats as bribery is needed to get the perfect poses.

Just had a back to school photo shoot for my daughter who has started P1. Photos from the school were awful and Derek kindly fitted me to get some back to school pictures after a great review from another mummy. He put my daughter at ease and he happily showed her the photos he was taking cause she is a bit nosey. We even managed some with my toddler son. So glad we got them done and will be using Derek next year during his ‘Back to school’ campaign so the uniforms will be pristine which I never thought about before. Received a few sneak pictures about an hour after session and they are a million times better than the school ones. So glad I did it!!

Took Taz and Kya (our border terrier pooches ) today for their Photo shoot with Derek
Early prints he has sent me are absolutely stunning
He has captured their cheeky personalities perfectly
He took his time and allowed the dogs to get used to studio then captured imagines with various props individually and together
Can’t wait to see all the prints
If there was ratings I would give him 10/10 .......

Derek was brilliant with my daughter for her school photo shoot. He was so patient and took lots of different poses. I never told Derek that my daughter is left handed so even although he had already done her writing for being right handed he advised it was absolutely no problem to change it and didn't make me feel awkward for asking for something! Derek was very professional and his studio is amazing!! Its a brilliant size so you didn't get too hot with the heat. Loved my sneaky peek at a picture too lol!!

Derek did a prom photo shoot for us in May this year and absolutely delivered . The shoot yielded beautiful shots, exactly what we were looking for. Derek was so professional and effortlessly put my daughter at ease through out. From start to finish we couldn’t have asked for a better experience or service and I couldn’t recommend Derek Harley Photography more . Thank you Derek for everything !

We did a family “rock the box” photo shoot with Derek which was such good fun and different from the normal uncomfortable traditional photo shoot - also within a nice new studio and gallery - can’t recommend Derek enough !!!
