“Maria came to our house one day last summer and spent several hours in the garden taking photographs of Jake and Louis. They all had such fun and seemed to have really enjoyed the time.
We now have the most special photographs in our house and they are much admired by everyone who comes to visit!
Maria spent an enormous amount of time and effort making sure we were happy with the final choice, and it was a joy to work with her.”

This has to go down as one of my most fun days with Maria. Not being one shy of the camera myself, Maria managed to get the best from me in her fun, happy vibrant way. When i thought i looked good, Maria added something that made me think and look better, the pictures outside and in the studio where amazing, and her idea for the use of props added that little extra je ne sais quois to the pictures. Amazing day.

“We really loved all the photos from our family photo shoot as they seem so unique, natural and unposed. In fact, it was very hard to choose a favourite!! We have had so many comments from friends and family on how good they are.”

“Having met Maria at a business networking breakfast, I was very impressed with the images Maria displayed. When I wanted to come up with something to promote spinal health, I came up with the crazy idea of having an actual bony spine painted directly onto my own spine using professional body painters. Maria was commissioned to photograph the end result.

I hadn’t anticipated just how difficult modelling could be when the canvas being used was my own body, or the artistic challenge involved in digitally manipulating the artwork to end up with such captivating photographic images. The work is truly unique as photographic art and is a powerful representation of the importance of spinal health.”

“Having a child is one of the most exciting times of your life and we wanted to capture the moment. We asked Maria when I was pregnant if she would photograph this very intimate time and the images were amazing.
When Aurelia was born Maria took more images of her which captured a special moment in time. Now she is growing up so quickly it is very moving to be reminded –through Maria’s images – of how precious time is.”

" I finally found the time and courage to book a session with maria for a business photo. primarily I was looking for a better photo to use on my website and in clinics and future brochures. I had met Maria several times and had seen some she had taken of people I knew and that really helped convince me that she would produce an image which I liked and give the impression I wanted for my business.

The session itself was great fun and Maria was so helpful, putting me at ease and in the right position! The photos were great and I am really pleased with the results. There was good choice of photos and advice on how to best use and crop the images etc was much appreciated.

I will be enthuisiastically recommeding maria for the price and the experience and the results."


" I have never felt comfortable in front of the camera. So publicity shots for my business was something I dreaded doing. But Maria made me feel so at ease that in the end I forgot that I was having my photograph taken. Maria is a fantastic photographer and the images she produces are superb. She made me feel very relaxed and had a enjoyable shoot. I will be returning soon for a family shoot. Many thanks."


"I first worked with Maria Scard whilst MD at Splash FM where she produced one of the best sets of PR images of presenter Anna Bingham (Anna B) of any I had seen. I was already aware of her work for overseas charities and her pictures are widely known around the area. Since working with her I have observed that the consistent theme running through her work is an ability to capture the essence of people. When it came to select a partner for the Prospectus for Worthing High School, Maria was a obvious choice. Her ability to befriend her subjects, capture the warm side of their personalities, do so in a technically proficient way and in often makeshift conditions - and her post-production before presenting the final images is quite superb. Maria works to high standards and still manages to surprise us with something extra each time. I would recommend using her before she becomes a household name and beyond reach!"

"We constantly need to provide photos for our magazines, publications, website and professional profiles. Our job is exceptionally important to us and so is the image that we portray to our donors, we represent our hospitals but also represent our donors, we are professional but we also want to be approachable, we are net workers but also want to be friendly, we are hard working modern women but also want to roll up our sleeves and get the job done! That is what Maria has given us in our photos and we are absolutely delighted. Maria is a joy to work with as she relaxes you and is more like having some snaps done by your sister and there is real fun as well as real results. Thank you Maria, you have given us a professional image with the human touch – you are fantastic”

'I have known Maria for nearly 14 years and have seen her photography develop over the years.
Maria has a special gift that is truly spectatular, not only is her work emotive but she is a real perfectionist
and takes real care to give you a little something "different". She is a warm and passionate person who is
able to create a real piece of art, as well as capture a "moment in time" that can be really cherished.
I have the real privilege of having her take the most amazing picture of me ( even though I say so myself) for my business cards.
She really is the BEST photographer I have ever seen!'

love my photos! Thank you Maria for understanding what I wanted. You listened and interpreted my wishes perfectly. I needed some professional but relaxed photos for my business and you achieved exactly the right feel for me. The photo shoot was fun and I think it shows in the images you produced. Choosing the final photos was difficult because there were so many good ones but your friendly approach and advice made the entire process an absolute pleasure. Friends and clients comment on how the images are an excellent reflection of the way I am.
Brilliant !
