What the client said:

“Ashley Coombes has worked with Nick Nairn Cook School and Nick himself on several occasions. We know that Ash will deliver. His totally professional approach means we can get plenty of shots done on any session with the confidence that the quality of the images will be excellent.

We commissioned Ash to take a large selection of images of Nick for us to use on our website and to send to publications and PRs for press use. We use these images of Nick all the time. They’ve appeared alongside Nick’s recipes and articles in the The Herald, the Daily Record, the Press & Journal, The Scotsman, and many other smaller publications.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ash for any professional or personal job. He’s friendly, dedicated and hardworking, and, most importantly, his photographs are excellent”
