1 We attended one of Mike's Lighting workshops in Feb 2011. Mike has a great sense of humour and immediately we all got on great and felt very relaxed. Mike is a fantastic teacher and we got exactly what we wanted from our day. We would recommend Mike's tuition sessions to anyone. Mike's wife Diane was our model for the day and she was such a joy to work with, very experienced and very patient. Definitely a model we would suggest people should work with. Thank you both for a great day and a great

1 Attende one of Mike's Lighting workshops on Oct 3rd 2009.
Mike is a fantastic teacher and I had an ernormously enjoyable morning which certainly fired up my synapses and got the creative juices flowing. I can't wait to get my own lights and strat applying what I learned. Highly recommended day for anyone who requires an introduction to lights is studio. Just Brilliant.

1 Worked with Mike again recently and a pleasure as always.

He makes shooting so easy and fun.

Is straight with you if the pose doesn't look great.

Disk sent at the speed of light. great images and just got the chance to sit down and sort through the one's I'd like for my portfolio. Not an easy choice with so many great pics.

Thanks again Mike and see you soon.

In both the lighting style workshop and in the Photoshop session, he homed in on my developmental needs and met them The day has sparked of loads of ideas and creativity.Mike is a great guy to work with A day with him will prove a valuable experience for any photographer who doiesn’t already know it all

1 Mike is always a pleasure to work with and someone who I consider to be a true friend.

We always achieve some great results and Mike always makes sure that the images are sent very quickly.

He knows some beautiful outdoor locations and has a great studio.

You would be mad to miss on the experience of working with such a great guy and photographer.

I for one will be working with him again and look forward to it.

1 I have had several shoots with Mike Lester over the past 2 years including my very first one.

Mike is brilliant to work with, has a great sense of humour, is polite, great at directing and coming up with new ideas.

All the pictures i have recieved from Mike i thought were Fab, along with the edited ones. I recieved the cd and prints no later than two weeks after the shoot.


definatley reccommended to models in the north west area!

1 Mike was punctual, polite, humorous and made me feel at ease on my shoot with him. This shoot was for Rogue Maidens and he sent the images very quickly allowing me to choose 40 of all the images. He then edited six for me and offered then to edit all 40 which was more than generous of him. The images were also very good quality, I was more than happy with the results.

1 Both myself and my wife - Chachia on NM - have worked with mike on numerous occasions. 100% gentleman and 100% top tog who has an annoying knack (yes I am jealous) of being able to make any model feel 100% at ease very quickly! :-)
