I first met Stewart totally by chance when he came to my sons Nursery to take some photographs of the children 7 years ago. I chatted with him about the work I do – I run a swim school for children aged 8 weeks up to 10/11 years – Baby and Toddler Swimmers in Carlisle. I was really keen to be able to offer an underwater photo session for my parents as I had had my eldest sons pictures taken 3 years previous and was delighted with them.
Right from the word go working with both Stewart and Lorraine has been an absolute pleasure. They are extremely professional and take the most amazing photographs, but the service they offer parents after the session is superb. The parents from the school are always excited to have their childs picture taken and sessions we organise together always run smooth. The cost of the sessions is extremely good value and the fact that parents go back with their second and third children is testament to that. I have on many occasions used photographs to advertise the business and no matter how many times we run these sessions I am always absolutely thrilled with the response. It is definitely a unique selling point for the business.
I have become good friends with Lorraine and Stewart and they were both brilliant at supporting my decision to expand the business 12 months ago to offer lessons for older children. They have encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and become a business with a team of 5.
I cannot recommend underwater photographic enough and I hope that our business relationship as well as our friendship will last for many years to come.

We're delighted to be working with Underwaterphotographer.co.uk for our Underwater Photoshoots. As a baby and pre-school swimming lesson provider in Ayrshire, 'Mini Splashers' we were keen to incorporate underwater shoots as a service we offer. From the earliest stages of initial contact right through to our first underwater photography shoot, Stewart was helpful and extremely informative. Happy to travel from England to our location in Scotland for a test shoot, we were reassured that our plans would run smoothly.
Stewart and Lorraine work as a team, one in the water and one on poolside, reassuring both the parents and instructors to ensure a calm and relaxing environment for all. Our Photoshoot ran extremely smoothly and included babies as young as 5 months, pre-schoolers, siblings and whole family shots. We had excellent feedback from our parents who loved the opportunity to capture such special moments of their children under the water. They loved their photographs! As a result we are happy to have established a working relationship with Underwaterphotographer.co.uk which will to continue to grow as we build our Mini Splashers swim school in Ayrshire.
