"I had a great shoot with Jurgen! He is really easy to work with, creates a very relaxed atmosphere and has a genuine eye and skill for getting the perfect shot, including knowing exactly how to direct for the right pose. I've modelled for years and worked with many photographers - Jurgen was one of the best in terms of getting the lighting right, understanding and communicating the composition of the shot and just having that eye for detail you would expect from an experienced photographer, whilst involving me in the process. Totally enjoyed working with him and would not hesitate to do so again."

Carolyn Smith

"Thank you for the Valentines shoot at Wollaton Park. Jamie hates having his photo taken, so we rarely get a good one of us! However, Jurgen put him straight at ease, and got loads of nice photos of us. After being anxious about the shoot before, we actually walked away saying we'd enjoyed ourselves and had a few laughs. Brilliant!"

Debz and Dave

"We had a great experience on our Valentines special photo shoot at Wollaton Park. Jurgen was very friendly and professional and also made us feel very relaxed. It didn't take long before we were giggling and having fun.

We were so pleased with the results that we just had to have all the photos. We were so surprised that Jurgen could capture who we were in just half an hour.

We would definitely recommend Rubicon Photography and can't thank them enough for our wonderful pictures......Thank you so much"

Doreen and Paul

"A great experience for Paul and myself - We are so pleased with the fabulous shots taken in Wollaton Park - very professional. Jurgen and colleague made us feel so relaxed and special - hence I think this all goes towards relaxed facial shots.

I have used Jurgen before to photograph my five grandchildren and the shots were exceptional.

I would certainly recommend Rubicon Photography."

"I had a brilliant day at my photo shoot with Jurgen. It was my birthday present and it was lovely to feel special for a day. Kata did my makeup which looked so lovely and natural.

Jurgen was very professional, he made me feel at ease and was very good at suggesting poses to make the most of the shoot.

I got some fabulous shots and I am very pleased with the prints I have got.

I would definitely recommend Rubicon Photography to anyone who wants to have some special photos taken that will last forever.

Thanks for everything"

Janet Bamford

"Hi I would like everyone to know what a fantastic experience my grandchildren had at their photo shoot. They were made welcome and put at ease, it was the first time they had been to a studio so they were nervous. Jurgen made it fun and before long the girls were laughing and even came up with a couple of their own poses. The result being we had a beautiful canvas for their Mum and Dad to hang on the lounge wall that was good value for money. Thank you, Rubicon Photography."

David Thompson

"Excellent service from Jurgen - a great job on some awkward product photos. I would confidently recommend Rubicon Photography."

Doreen Blake

"Fantastic family photo shoot by Jurgen of Rubicon. He made all five of my grandchildren feel so relaxed and therefore great natural photo shots. Very professional and we would certainly recommend to family and friends. Many thanks"

Jemma Simmonds

"As Event and Operations Manager for Miss Great Britain we have used Rubicon Photography as our official event photographer for the past 2 years.

Jurgen is a consummate professional, consistently going above and beyond what is asked of him. Not only is Jurgen a fantastically talented photographer but he is incredibly personable and brilliant to work with.

Within the environment of a large 'live' event Jurgen gets 'stuck in' and requires very little direction capturing key moments effortlessly.

We are very proud to include Rubicon as part of our team and would confidently recommend Rubicon to anyone for any of their photography needs"

Jaine Watson

"What an amazing confidence boost Jurgen gave me!

Totally professional from the word go, and he really encourages you to come forward with ideas of your own, to work on together.

Whatever the occasion, without doubt I always recommend Rubicon, having built up such a rapport with Jurgen, I see no reason to look anywhere else.

Each client is so important, and the time taken with you at the shoot makes you relax, very important if you have any confidence issues.

Equally as important is the time again taken with you when you go to view your pictures, nothing is rushed, and the results are truly stunning!

Top guy, top photographer & I made a fabulous friend since then"

Gareth North

"Just wanted to say how fantastic it was to have our wedding photographed by the team at Rubicon Photography. They were never intrusive or got in the way during the event but were still able to capture all the best shots and special moments that made up our day. Always professional throughout even when dealing with a difficult vicar and verger.

They took shots of everything you could think of that would make up such an event and memorable pictures of the parts that you just you wouldn’t of thought would produce any good pictures but when you see them know you couldn’t be without them. They even managed to capture the rare event of my mother actually smiling! :)

All your efforts on the day to get the best shots showed in the resulting photographs I can't thank you enough!

Will not hesitate to recommend your services to friends and family especially as I’ve heard from another couple who I know you've been speaking to your thinking about accommodating there suggestion of capturing their wedding on cine film as well as digital stills. How cool would that be?

Best Regards and continued success of growing your business in the future and responding to your customer’s needs.

Gareth & Rebecca"

James Burton

"After haggling a decent price with Jurgen booked him for my Wedding. I had over 100 guests and wanted photos of everyone (as some relatives came over from Australia). Jurgen certainly had his work cut out.

Well, you wouldn't believe how good they were. I was very impressed, my lovely wife looked amazing, the group shot, cake, amazing. All the photos were of an incredibly high quality.

Also bought some canvas prints.

If you are getting married, give Jurgen a call. I can't recommend him enough."

Jason Wilson

"I had some family photos taken by Jurgen a few months ago. I have used other photographers in the past and while they had high cost, didn't really deliver any results. Jurgen was competitively priced, took some fantastic photos and makes a great cuppa!

Would I use Jurgen again? Yes, I have already booked him for when my baby is due Feb.

I can't recommend Rubicon Photography high enough!"

Clodagh Mulligan

I" worked with Jurgen on a studio shoot having met him at the Miss GB finals. I have been modelling for around 6 years and so I have worked with a lot of photographers. Jurgen really does rank highly he has a natural talent and eye for what works. He also has a strong grasp on lighting (which trust me is an asset) If his amazing photos don't speak for themselves then just so you know; he is one of the friendliest and kindest photographers I've ever worked with and make the perfect brew. The studio is in a great location in Nottingham central enough that you can easily get there and plenty of space to park. I will definitely use Jurgen (Rubicon Photography) to update my portfolio again."
