Liesel has consistently been an outstanding producer and photographer of very fine imagery.  I love her natural and real style, aligned with strong commercial and emotional messages.  She’s also a delight to work with!

Liesel has photographed my two boys several times. She is somehow able to manage them and make them laugh and she produces wonderful photos. I like that her photos are natural and the light is always special.

Fiona Stillwell, East Sheen
Liesel was absolutely amazing. A very charismatic individual who took my project and owned it from day one. She is very passionate about photography. Her approach to work is very methodical and was extremely diligent in her approach.

What really helped me was the fact that she took the time to go beyond her job. This is a quality you rarely see.

Liesel and I have worked together on several fitness and health themed photography projects. I always find her approach to be very dynamic – it’s no mean feat to taking sports and fitness photography but her imagery is fresh and vivid.

Likewise when we came to the food shoot – I was so pleased with the results – all the images were bursting with health and look good enough to eat! I would definitely work with her again.

She is an absolute pleasure to work with. Very professional and considerate, she listened to what we wanted but also came up with some very cool ideas to show off our toys. She is very warm and makes models and clients alike feel comfortable: Highly recommended *****

Liesel produces beautiful photos by being easy-going, fun, charismatic, thereby getting the best out of her subjects and really capturing their essence. She’s especially brilliant at managing this with children – not mean feat!
