Sarah- Jane Campbell, Head of The Foundry - Google Ireland
We at Google Ireland have been working with Mel since January 2014. When we opened our customer experience centre, The Foundry, Mel's photography enabled us to convey the vibrant, bright surroundings and the excitement, networking and engaging content of the events we host in The Foundry. He has shown the variety of work he can do as we host many different types of events. He has photographed among many examples, our Google customers at product knowledge and thought leadership sessions, our entrants in the Doodle for Google competition and some of our inspiring speakers that have spoken to our Google employees. Mel has a great easy going nature, he is calm and unobtrusive. He quickly learnt what we wanted from each event and adapted his style. We've really enjoyed all the events we have worked on together and I would not hesitate to recommend to other companies.
Richard Molloy - Head of Marketing - Audi Ireland
We have worked with Mel since 2013 on a variety of Audi event projects. Mel’s primary work with us is on the Audi Quattro Cup; our customer golf tournament. Mel’s technically ability is first class and has a great eye for detail. He also captures those special moments with customers which makes his work stand out. I’ve always found Mel brilliant to work with - great personality and extremely cooperative.
Cathy O'Donohoe - Director - Pluto Event & Marketing Solutions
We have worked with Mel as our event photographer for many years. His attention to detail, discreet mannerisms, speed and efficiency ensures we never have to worry about the photography or any client concerns and we can get on with managing the event. We couldn't recommend him highly enough and we hope to work with him for many years to come.
Joan Mulvihill - CEO - Irish Internet Association
Mel really understood the brief and captured the mood and energy of the event. The variety of photographs was amazing and it seemed at times that he must have been in three places at once. He missed nothing yet his discretion meant that the photography never intruded on delegates or speakers. We increased the number of images that landed in the press as Mel has a real feel for what will work for business publications.
Marty Carr - CEO - Carr Golf Travel
Mel has worked with us for the past couple of years at our World Invitational Father & Son Golf Tournament, an event which attracts many big names from sport, business, politics and show business, among others. The quality of Mel’s work is impeccable as is his ability to turnaround photos in a short space of time. His online galleries are a great addition that allows us to send images to participants within a couple of hours. His knowledge of golf gives him a great eye to capture the perfect golfing photo.
Juliet Stevens - Marketing Manager - WYSE Travel Confederation
Mel really captured the essence of our WYSTC 2014 event which took place across several venues in Dublin. The photos are very professional looking and have really boosted our Facebook page and website – we were impressed with the speed of delivery of the final photos too. Mel is very easy to work with - friendly yet professional - and we would definitely recommend him to others. Thanks Mel!
Amie Hanley - Corporate Marketing Manager - RSM Farrell Grant Sparks
Mel managed our photography for our annual golf outing which was a huge success. During that event, I found Mel’s professionalism and service to the event photography to be simply excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Mel produced high quality images on-site for all of our customers and they were amazed that they were printed and presented to them to take home as a reminder of the day before they sat down to dinner. The online branded gallery Mel provided after the event was a great format to share all the images from the day with our guests. I would be confident of his photography for future events and I look forward to working with him again.
Alison Martin - Office Manager - The Mediators' Institute of Ireland
I have had the pleasure of working with Mel on two occasions and I hope to work with him again many times in the future. As well as being an excellent photographer Mel has a way with people that ensures he gets the best from them. He was unobtrusive at our events while still getting excellent informal shots as requested in our brief. He has proved to be very reliable and that made my work so much easier during the event as I knew he would deliver everything requested of him and more. His use of technology to upload the photos enabled us to use them immediately on our social media platforms and to download the high resolution versions for media outlets. I can highly recommend Mel for his expertise, friendliness, reliability and value for money.
