Winner! UK Event

Photographer of the year.

I have lived and worked all over the UK and a few years ago I relocated with my family to the Isle of Wight to be back by the sea but I travel all over the UK for my photography, video and drone work.

Being a creative by nature i'm always looking for the next challenge to conquer.

I love to fish in the sea, explore the landscapes and also i'm a trained pilot of light aircraft.

Ian is professional, efficient, and fantastic at what he does! He was so flexible in meeting our requirements (even with a last minute change), and the turnaround on our photos and videos was so quick. We had them by the following morning. The quality of the photos and videos are second to none and are a true representation of our brand. We can’t thank Ian enough.

Ian Plested is very easy to work with and creates highly professional photographs quickly and on budget. We gave him a tricky brief for product photography for one of our clients websites and we were very pleased with the results. We are proud to be associated with Ian and would recommend his photography skills to anyone needing a reliable and professional photographer.

Zoe Bartlett

Ian has photographed many events I have managed and I can highly recommend him.

He is a pleasure to work with- friendly and professional, and always fulfils and exceeds the brief given with beautiful images that capture the essence of the event.

 Ian has always been professional, punctual and very polite when taking our corporate headshots. My colleagues always comment on how he puts them at ease (standing for a corporate headshot is not an enjoyable experience for many people!) The images are always sent to us within a couple of days (most often the evening of the shoot), allowing us to choose our favourites, before being edited. When they return they are of great quality and Ian has now become our go to for any occasion we need photos taken in our office! Thank you Ian! :)

Steve Langley

Ian came and did some still shots for our company portfolio and our new upcoming website. We'd not heard of Ian before but went with the recommendations and reviews. We have no concerns recommending Ian. Apart from being a very pleasant guy he's also very professional. He showed a great interest in our products and listened to what we needed. Definitely happy to recommend Ian and wish him all the best for the future.

James Phipps

Ian is a very talented photographer whose relaxed style tends to bring out the best pictures whether for weddings, business or family related.


Highly recommended.

Sue Lupton

Working with Ian Plested is a pleasure. Ian has done two jobs for my organisation recently at short notice. He is extremely helpful and professional, delivering excellent images very quickly.

I look forward to working together in the future.

James Fisher

I've worked with Ian many times and it's always a pleasure. He's professional, nothing is ever too much trouble, and he always delivers. His turn around time for photos is really fast and the quality is always top notch. I highly recommend him and his photography services.

Shaun Skinner

Ian is one of the finest companies we have had the pleasure in working with. Ian and his team have joined us on many projects and never fail to deliver and capture so many amazing moments. They have demonstrated time and time again a high level of professionalism and high quality of work. Ian has become an artist in his own field and his lens captures those all important moments in time with ease. Our photographic briefs are sometimes testing and challenging however nothing is ever too much trouble and without Ians fine work, our work would not be where it is today. Great photos, great company, Highly recommended.

Andrew Roberts

Thank you Ian, these are fantastic and everyone is very pleased!

We will certainly recommend and use you again.
