Soulphotography is a photography service based in the lovely village of Broadway, Somerset. My name is Steven Driskel and I am a certified photographer fully DBS checked, who was borne and raised in South Africa. My love for nature and photography comes together in what I do and although landscape photography is my passion, I have found myself really enjoying taking pictures of people in either candid or portrait formats.
I believe in the philosophy that a photograph must go deeper than just a pretty "postcard". I always attempt to capture the soul of the individual or family as these are the pictures that will be timeless. As a family man myself, I can relate to the family dynamic and attempt to capture these in the photographs.
Here are some of the feedback we've had from our clients:
"My husband and I were delighted with Steven's photographs of our children. He really knew how to engage our toddlers to get the best photos of them. I was amazed that he managed to produce such a range of images and capture their personalities so well; especially as they struggle to keep still! We have been impressed with Steven's professionalism - he responded extremely promptly to emails and queries and has been able to advise us on how best to produce prints of his images. I really enjoyed the experience and we will be asking Steven to take our family photos regularly now. I highly recommend Soul Photography." Laura Ellen Rose
"A superbly skilled photographer who not only puts you at ease in every shot but delivers a photo that can capture the smells, sounds and emotion in one shot. Steven is a really lovely guy, who is friendly, warm, making everyone feel comfortable and always goes that extra mile not only to get the perfect shot but to also provide that excellent service. An angle can make all the difference and through his lens he can obviously spy it and he grabs it. We could not rate Soul Photography higher - he captured the soul in the photo - so he does what it says on the tin - Thank you Steven."
"Stunning images, excellent work ethic. On time, on price, on my next job. Every time we have asked Steve for his help he has shown a creative mind set and eye for detail that has given our projects the real WOW factor. A fantastic, down to earth guy who instantly "got our brief" and has delivered every time we have asked him to be involved. Nothing has been too much trouble. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Soul Photography to any of my clients."
"The Coombe Farm Milk Supply Group, or ‘Milk Pool’, is a dedicated collective of organic farmers working closely alongside Coombe Farm’s own dairy farms. The Milk Pool team gives a fully integrated operation and organisation, from the dairy herds to the collection of milk and its delivery to factory, and ensures customers have full traceability and organic quality control of their milk.We asked Steven Driskel from SoulPhotography to work with us on our “Meet the farmer” project, and his brief was to photograph the farmers from our “Milk Pool” at their farms, amongst their herds and landscape locations and create images we can use for the big banners we display at events. The project was divided into numerous farms over a two-week period. Steven was always on time and had no problem with getting stuck in on the farm locations and moving around amongst the herds in the field. Farmers are busy people and do not have lots of spare time for these photo sessions. Steven was professional and friendly in the way he approached our farmers, as well as being efficient in his shoots and did not waste any time in getting the shots we wanted. Steven shared the production of the final images efficiently, with no more than a day’s turnaround. Steven was willing to post produce the images to our exact requirements, although we did eventually choose images as selected and produced by Steven. Steven made the project as quick and painless for everybody involved as possible, and we were really impressed by the quality of the images and efficiency and timelines Steven managed to produce them in. We look forward to working with SoulPhotography on future projects and I have no hesitation in writing this reference for Steven. I can highly recommend him for any photography job you might have."
