SPATEX Organiser Michele Bridle


I first spotted Norman taking photographs at the Glamping Show in 2015 and was immediately impressed with his professionalism and enthusiasm  in getting exactly the right shots and was eager to hire him for our 20th anniversary SPATEX 2016 Show at Coventry's Ricoh Arena in February. To say he has surpassed my expectations is an understatement. With an easy-going, nothing is 'too much trouble'  manner, he is an absolute pleasure to work with.


Hired for one day, he turned up for the job the afternoon before in order to get a full appreciation of the venue and the brief. He was extremely helpful in suggesting shots that myself and my team had not thought about. The next day he was up at the crack of dawn taking photographs and barely stopped  throughout the day. We had planned a celebratory networking party after the Show closed and, although not previously arranged, Norman happily volunteered to take photographs. An extra bonus for us was the fantastic party video he made which has gone down an absolute storm with the Industry and something we hadn't thought of. His dedication didn't end there because he then spent a considerable amount of time editing the images to get them just right for our requirements.


I have no hesitation in highly recommending Norman who is a consummate professional who goes well beyond the call of duty to get 'the shot'.  We now consider him very much one of the SPATEX team!
