Dear Noel, - Photographic print - 'Autumn Colours'
We were in Huddersfield today and wandered from the Blue Room into your niece’s shop. Once there we were captivated by your photography – especially ‘Autumn Colours’ - which we first bought as a card then the print so we could have it framed. It is just the picture we have been looking for.
We have also looked at your website and the equally fabulous pictures there.
So really, just wanted to say thanks very much for making our day.
Tim & Lesley
Hi Noel - ‘Radiant Light’
Beautifully presented, a piece of art that will give many years of pleasure. It was also a joy when I visited, by appointment, after seeing the picture on your website. There was no pressure, and no rush in choosing the frame. There are others that have caught my eye, the problem is whittling down to a shortlist!
Hi Noel - ‘Final Destination’
Twelve months after seeing your print in a gallery my husband is now proud owner of your fabulous print 'Final Destination'.
It has inspired his own mini restoration project and now he spends all his spare time in the garage!
You couldn't have been more helpful in arranging the surprise gift and we now have a shortlist of other coveted pieces and are busy spreading the word.
Hi Noel - 'Dawn Over Oulton Heath'.
Just wanted to say Thank you, the picture looks amazing and exactly what we wanted.
A perfect memory of Oulton for Paul especially as one of the trees is now gone.
Very well done and well deserved. A magnificent and inspirational photographer.
Just to let you know the print arrived yesterday and it’s being framed. It’s as nice as we remembered, the internet/computer screen doesn’t do your pictures justice.
Hello Noel, 'Geese at Grove Farm' - Limited Edition Print Order
We saw your print at Keele University a few months ago on an open day where there were numerous prints from a photographic competition. For me your print stood out and without knowing where it was taken for me it spoke of early mornings in North Norfolk. We go there each year for a short camping trip at Breck Farm near Holt. We loved the oak frame in which it was hung, fits in with our furniture perfectly... I nearly bought it there and then, but it was just a bit too much for us to cough up on the day. When we got home I looked you up on the internet, nice web-site :)
I nearly called to see if you had run out but you have only sold 6, I can't believe it! We will enjoy your print for many years to come, just looking at it and your there, gives me a nice warm feeling.

Very many thanks for donating the voucher which we placed in our raffle last Sunday which raised the amazing sum of £800.00, I do not have the final figure for the whole event but I think it will be just under £3000.00 which is fantastic. We placed your cards on all the tables and none were left so I do hope that you will get some future business from the venue.
Many thanks again for your support it is very much appreciated

Hello Noel, How are you?
I haven't been to camera club since last year as I'm not taking many photos at the moment, and don't want to feel that I should be.
Brian put up a post on facebook about your exhibition so I went to look at it today. It really is fantastic and inspiring. The quality is superb. I've tried a few on the same lines myself but they didn't go down too well with the judges. Probably not experienced enough to know what looks good yet!

Really enjoyed looking at your wonderful Stafford exhibition. Fabulous! Thank you. What a great talent you have.
Dear Noel & Chrissie, - ‘Awaiting Renovation’
Just a note to say thank you for the above photograph.
It has taken pride of place in our house now for just over a week, and I absolutely love it.
It's a fantastic piece of work, which I will continue to enjoy for many years to come.
Thanks again, and good luck and best wishes for the future.
Hi - ‘New Day’
We stayed at the Dog and Doublet in Sandon after our wedding on Friday and in the four poster room there was one of your pictures titled "New Day" I really like it and would like to know where I can buy one from. We had booked four rooms and after seeing this one we started wandering around to look at all your pictures and they are all lovely.
Hi Noel - Congratulations
I visited the Three Counties Exhibition yesterday and saw your winning image - it's stunning and a deserving winner
Many congratulations Noel - Genesis is a superb landscape image. Was it taken in North Wales?
I also very much liked your other images Fairground Reflection and Hill House Deer
I am the Programme Secretary of St Leonards Camera Club in Stafford and I hope you might agree to come along one evening to give us the opportunity to see your work
Graham Argent, CPAGB
On behalf of Walton PS and friends I would like to thank you once again for last night?s informative, entertaining and inspirational presentation. Your prints are truly stunning and it was great to have the opportunity to view them at close quarters. You struck just the right balance between artistic and technical detail and we are most appreciative to you for sharing your techniques and answering our queries.
I hope we will be able to welcome you back in the future. In the meantime I look forward to regular visits to the gallery (and cake) and wish you and Christina continued success.
We've met a couple of times at Stafford Camera Club. Just thought I'd drop you a line to say how much I'm enjoying viewing your website (trying to make a guess as to where you've taken a lot of the photos!).
I'll probably see you this Tuesday, if not the next.
I met you on the canal bridge while dog walkinbg on wed eve. Looked up your web site on returning home. Wow!! You like your misty, frosty mornings. I especially liked psycho on the cut and the one of the roaches. Luck does come into it though, don't you think, just being at the right place at the right time especially where wildlife is concerned.
Noel, Waldo here from Charlotte, NC, USA.
Images brought back good memories...words brought back chills!!! Had a great time. Waldo

We meet you while staying at the same B&B and did not have the chance to view your work. I have been waiting for you to produce your results. I have not been disappointed! You have a creative eye and the detail you include allows us to access the scene.

Congratulations on Your Talented Work.Wish You Lot's of Success in THE FUTURE
Very much enjoyed this website, impressive style & quality yet the photographer's comments gave an invaluable and personal insight into his motivation and enthusiasm. Just can't decide which to order prints of!
