“Highly recommend David, he did our first in-salon photoshoot back in March. David really listened to what we were looking for and helped us achieve the images we wanted for competition and salon use.”

Saffron Burton, SaffyB’s Salon, Aylesbury

“I have used David several times for my Salon Team head shots and for a hair model shoot. I found David to be extremely professional and I was happy for him to take the lead and organise us. I’m looking forward to working with him again soon. The images he produces are exceptionally beautiful!”

Belinda Cleary, Director, Medusa Hairdressing ltd

Had a lovely socially distanced shoot with David last month, and got the photos back really quickly!! Would absolutely recommend him if you are looking for quality headshots ❤️

Alex Knott

I’ve worked as a model with Dave on numerous occasions over the years and have never worked with a better photographer. He’s very organised, always on time and has a lovely relaxed manor so as a model I’m always comfortable and able to put my best self forward. Then there is his attention to detail and eye for beauty! I always love the photos, Dave always makes me look so good. Thank you Dave, if I could recommend you to everyone I would!

I was in need of a headshot for acting and a contrasting photo, and had never modelled before until I worked with David… He made me feel very comfortable and I enjoyed myself very much. David was great at giving me direction when needed and encouraged me to try different things.

I’m so pleased with the pictures we got from our shoot together! I love his photography and am looking forward to our next shoot together! Would highly recommend!

Fleur Louise Hunt

We booked David to come to our office near Portsmouth and take some individual headshots and team photographs for a forthcoming award. David was the consummate professional, and clearly an experienced and talented photographer. His advice, and ability to put subjects at their ease, made for quality shots that the team were very pleased with. We will be booking David again, without a doubt.

James Reid, ITDA

Loved working with David…always has great quirky ideas for shoots. I also love a photographer that gives direction and he got this spot on! Lets not forget the end photos…WOW!!

Lizzie Perrins

Had my first photoshoot with David and it was fantastic! I was made to feel very comfortable and the whole shoot was great. We discussed ideas of what we were going to do and what I wanted to achieve. The photos say it all. Everyone has commented on how amazing they are and I’m very happy with the edits. Can’t wait for our next shoot! – Lizzy Lacey

I shot with David yesterday at the beach. David was an absolute delight to work with. He wasn’t afraid to give me direction if something wasn’t looking right on the camera. I enjoyed myself so much and despite the cold managed to get some wicked photos! iv worked with David twice now, and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again!Thank you David!! –

Andrea Williams

David is a brilliant photographer to work with, made me feel very comfortable and also let me view the pictures throughout the session and asked for my opinion in what I thought was working. Definitely would love to work with him again. –

David and Zoe (MUA) were delightful, reassuring and created a great relaxed atmosphere. . The shoot seemed unhurried, yet we got through a lot of shots. –

“For someone who hates getting their picture taken, David really made me feel comfortable. He was friendly and honest and had great suggestions and guidance. I have now seen my final pictures and couldn’t be happier with them! Would definitely recommend.” –

Alice Mitchell (copied from fb page reviews)

“Have just relieved the photos back from the session I had with David, and I’m blown away by how good they are. David spent time understanding exactly what I was looking for from him (a range of shots for work, blogs and websites), and led me through the shoot, advising and guiding and generally putting me at my ease.The results are far beyond what I expected, clear, bright, personal and engaging.Can’t recommend David enough…” –

Adrian Hardy (copied from fb page reviews)

“Recently had a set of headshots done and am amazed at how good they are! Exactly how I wanted them, have been used already! Felt so comfortable throughout the shoot (which says it all because I’m camera shy) and loved that the photos captured a natural side to me and that I didn’t even have to pose! Would highly recommend!”

Sam Penter (copied from fb page reviews)

“First shoot with David i was really impressed with his attention to detail. Questions regarding what type of pictures i needed. Went for a cuppa after the shoot, got home & David had sent photos on Dropbox ready for me to choose.

“We at Hardysalon Portsmouth have worked alongside david in different capacities over the last 6 years. David has helped us to execute creative visions with flair & style to deliver some of our awesome in house looks. David is loyal & has a real eye for quality & delivering projects on time” –

Dave & Rachel – Hardysalon, Portsmouth

“We hired Dave upon recommendation for a salon session day and team building and creative exercises. Dave helped prior to the shoot in sourcing models and make up artists and gave us an idea of what we should do for consistent images. During the day He gave direction to the models to create the best angles and poses for the style they had, and also put everyone at ease in a relaxed and professional enviroment. In the past we have paid the best part of £1000 for a team session day for poor quality images and poor interaction, so it was a relief and joy that we could get such superb photos used in our advertisements for such a reasonable price. he is a superb and skilled photographer and we can’t wait to book him for our next shoot!” –

Enzorosario Hair Design

“Dave did a great job documenting our special day and made us feel at ease throughout. He captured all of the action including our very long list of requested photos! The group shots were organised quickly and efficiently and Dave found some really special locations for our bride and groom shots.There were so many brilliant photos it was pretty difficult to pick our favourites! He was professional and friendly throughout the day and in the planning stages, we are delighted with the results. I can’t wait to see the photo of my bouquet in Vogue!” –

Ben & Sarah Griffin

“I worked with Dave for the first time this week, he was the photographer at my styling companies editorial photoshoot on location, and I’m absolutely delighted with the results.Not only was Dave a professional and talented photographer to work with, he was fun and creative and made our models very relaxed. He has produced high end shots that entirely matched my expectations and the quality is evident in both his technical ability and editing post photoshoot. He communicated well throughout the day (in a somewhat challenging location!) which meant we were included in the more technical aspects and could see the photos evolving as we went. Would 100% recommend Dave and look forward to working with him again” –

Nicki, What Alice Found Creative Styling

“As a freelance designer just starting a label, high quality portfolio shots are crucial, and this is exactly what I got from David Greensmith Photography. From our first chat on Model Mayhem, David worked closely with me in developing ideas, and we quickly built up a very strong photo shoot concept. We planned the shoot through a series of chats about every detail; from hair and makeup, to lighting and mood. As someone who is relatively new to photography, I found the mood boards and concept descriptions I was sent immensely helpful, and easy to understand.The final photo shoot went extremely well; the pictures turned out exactly as I had envisioned in the planning stages. As I was present for the shoot, I was given the opportunity to fine tune the look of the shots, but David and his creative team work to such a high standard, I really didn’t need to do much more than stand back and admire their work. The images I received will be invaluable in growing my business, and I would highly recommend David Greensmith Photography to any other creative professionals looking for professional-level shots for their portfolio.” –

Scott Massey Couture

“Lovely man and great photographer. I’m not the fondest of having posed pictures taken, but I needed my headshot. Dave was extremely re-assuring and helpful. RECOMMEND. :)”

Kirsty Marie Terry, Headshot

“I was very nervous about my photo shoot after losing 10 stone. Still not body confident. However I was given great direction by David he kept me calm and worked so hard to get a nice picture for me 🙂 Really appreciated it. Highly recommend.” –

Amy Keable

“Great attitude, great direction and incredibly professional towards models. Very good turnaround on proofs, too. Plays great music on set. Highly recommended.” –

Alex Watts, Manager of Isabelle L’Amour

“Great day, you and your team helped Megan, as she was very nervous , but by the end of the shoot she was really getting into it, I also appreciated the conversation you had with Megan, explaining that there would be more people on a shoot if she was a professional model, So she now knows that it will be hard work and fun, Thank you again, for your help and putting Megan completely at ease, very pleased with the selection of photo’s excellent. Would recommend you to anyone who needs a photographer.”

Diane B. Layley

“Always makes me feel comfortable and capable! Great guy to be around and produces fabulous and creative work.” –

Lauren May Maher, Headshot

“Thankfully David helped take the stress and pomp away from the perceived drama of choosing and working with a wedding photographer. Planning a wedding you should always look for the options that help share/reduce the stress. The pre-wedding shoot is a great idea, really helped me to understand what was going to be needed from me…apart from a cheesy smile. This also helped build bridges prior to spending the “big day” – where essentially you are inviting a “stranger” to your day. The after-sales service has been brilliant, which is a great help when you have to sift through all those images in order to make your final choices.”

Barry & Emma Marks

“Our special day needed a special photographer and that’s exactly what we found in David Greensmith.  Professional yet relaxed, everyone was instantly put at ease and even the more reluctant guests were soon posing and smiling for their shot!.Friendly and approachable, he catered for our every requirement, including a bride and groom shoot at Titchfield Abbey, which as you will see looks absolutely stunning.Highly recommended, we couldn’t have chosen better.” –

Neil & Sarah Avis

David arrived at our event with a fairly blank canvas to work from. He was very efficient with the large group shot which pleased the Managing Partner, and got the rest of the shots we wanted with minimum fuss. His service was prompt and of high quality and we would certainly consider working with him again. –

Richard Stainthorpe, DLA Piper UK LLP

As a ghostly events company image is everything  – as we are selling an idea and experience. We asked David to produce some imagery that would promote the Dark Encounters brand and really capture the imagination of people as to what we can offer.  Despite having to follow one of LIVE ghost walks in very low light and rapidly moving action he really managed to capture the essence of what happens on our walks – the fear and the fun. All this and keeping a low profile as to not disrupt the tour.  If a picture is a thousand words then we now have plenty. –

Jonathan Fost, Director, Dark Encounters

Dave is a fantastic photographer, very quick and so easy to get on with. Although we didn’t come prepared he new what we wanted and did a brilliant job. Love the shoot very professional. Amazing pictures so happy with them. Thanks dave definitely be seeing you again in the future.

Amy & Wai Lun

I really enjoyed my first ever shoot with David. Having never done a shoot before needless to say I was a little nervous and very inexperienced but he soon put me at ease and really helped me settle into the shoot quickly. For someone who works with professionals, he was very patient with me. I had so many pictures to choose from after so asked for David’s help to pick and the results were amazing! I was so happy with the results, the pictures are fantastic and am now thinking of ideas for a second shoot with David and would recommend him to anyone! As a matter of fact I have already recommended friends to shoot with him. –

Hannah Jackson

I did a test shoot with Dave and the images I got were fab! His advice and guidance supported me and made me feel at ease! I had the opportunity to work with him for a client and again he’s lovely and the images are incredible! I will be looking to shoot with him in the future! –

Isobelle Jane Cooper, Model

Managed to organize a shoot with David in a matter of hours and I’m very glad I did ! Such a nice guy and good fun to work with.

Very professional and cannot wait to shoot with him again. You wont regret booking a shoot! –

Chloe Morley, Model

Dave is down to earth, professional and considerate which is exactly what is needed to get the most out of a shoot I highly recommend working with him!! Even though I just did a test shoot today Dave made sure we did some extra shots so that I also obtained something different for my portfolio too couldn’t ask for more in a photographer 🙂 Thank you Dave hope to work with you at some point soon.

Louisa, Model

David achieves great outstanding work and understood what I wanted to achieve in my shoot I arranged for my project. He is very hardworking and very talented! Fun loving and worked greatly with the team. I would recommend to all models.


Dave is a lovely guy who clearly thinks his shoots through beforehand and is very focused. He is good at giving direction and I had fun shooting with him. I need to squeeze in another shoot with him again 🙂
