Gavin Jones - Swyddog Ymgysyltu ar Gymuned/ Living Levels Community Engagement Officer - RSPBCymru
"Nigel was a great sport on our dawn till dusk shoot on the Gwent Levels! Despite enduring four seasons in one day with challenging light conditions, he managed to produce some absolutely stunning landscape, wildlife, industry and plant life images which we were able to use in our funding application and will be using on our website in the future."
Graeme Farrow, Artistic & Creative Director Wales Millennium Centre
“It was a pleasure for Wales Millennium Centre to host Nigel Pugh’s exhibition, Creating Sanctuary, in partnership with Diffusion Festival this June and July. The work offered visitors to the Centre an important insight into the stories and experiences of volunteers working with refugees in Wales, and its display during Refugee Week and Volunteer’s Week made it even more pertinent. We hope that Nigel has continued success with the exhibition and is able to secure a Welsh tour, which would further his objective of shining a light on voluntary networks within Wales, and ultimately lead to increased voluntary action"
Nesta - Rob Ashelford Senior Innovation Programmes Manager,
We employed Nigel to document activity as part of the Digital Innovation Fund for the Arts in Wales. Nigel produced some fantastic, creative results and we're really pleased wit the outcomes. His work has really helped us to tell the story of the work we're doing more effectively.
Cynnal Cymru - Lynsey Jackson Marketing Manager | Rheolwraig Marchnata
"Nigel provided an excellent and professional photography service as well as surprising us with some really creative photos that really brought our event alive. He was able to fulfil our brief by capturing a number key photos in a discreet and unobtrusive manner."
Taking Flight Theatre Company - Beth House
"It was amazing to see Nigel stealthily cramming himself into the smallest of spaces to get the best pictures. The results were fantastic. I didn’t think it was possible to so perfectly sum up the essence of Taking Flight through pictures of what might seem like a boring conference. I was wrong- this is exactly what Nigel did. When I look at the photographs now I can see the movement, the personalities of the speakers and the fun in the event, and the photos demonstrate the inclusivity and access of the company and the event."
CTC, the national cycling charity - Sam Jones Campaigns & Communications Coordinator
“Nigel swooped in at the last hour and captured the essence of what our event Trails for Wales was seeking to achieve. His swift turn around in the editing suite ensured we had something to give to media shortly after the event, which was very important to us. Cannot recommend him enough, and will definitely look to use him again for future campaigning activity over in Cardiff.”
Natural Resources Wales - Christian Servini
‘We’ve worked with Nigel at our workshops and he perfectly captures the energy and enthusiasm of an event every time. Nigel is considerate and thorough, always taking the time to faithfully capture all of the paperwork, scribbles and posters people produce, which is incredibly useful for us. It’s great having fantastic shots we can use again and again to highlight and promote our work’
Wildlife Trusts Wales - James Byrne, Living Landscapes Manager
‘Through his photography, Nigel has captured the true essence and wonder of nature. His photographs of Wildlife Trusts reserves and the wildlife found in them have been truly inspiring”
University of Bristol - Dr. Helen Manchester, Lecturer (Educational and Social Futures)
'Nigel worked alongside researchers and community members to take some truly wonderful photographs that made visible the older community and issues of loneliness in an evocative way. His approach was always thoughtful and sensitive and he really understood the community led approach we were keen to adopt for the project. Nigel takes an engaged approach to the people he works with and takes photographs of which results in photographs that enable us all to see the world in a slightly different way.'
Street Games & Cardiff Cycle City - CaroWild
“ We are so pleased we asked Nigel to help us capture our cycling event in Cardiff Bay. Nigel worked really hard to get an amazing photo, but what was brilliant was the fun we all had in making the shot “
Sustrans Cymru - CarysThomas Dirprwy Gyfarwyddwr (Dylanwadu a Dewisiadau Doethach) Deputy Director
“Nigel has a fantastic eye for creating the perfect image that will best encapsulate your event or campaign. Nigel provided a range of photographs to Cardiff Cycle City to accompany the launch of our new Cycling Manifesto, all of which played an integral role in attracting more visitors to the website and our social media platforms. He is a joy to work with and I can't rate him highly enough.”
Scarlet Design - FranO'Hara: MD/Creative Director
"Nigel recorded a recent community consultation event I facilitated, creating a series of professional and engaging photos which really captured the event and the attendees. His attention to detail, and ability to capture the mood and discussions in the room is outstanding. He transferred his creativity and documentary photography skills to an indoor business setting, and in doing so has developed a style which is unique and of the highest quality. I would definitely recommend Nigel to anyone holding a similar event."
Angela Jones-Evans: Campaign Centre Manager at Welsh Conservatives
"Nigel's photographs of a public meeting that I recently facilitated captured the spirit and mood of the event perfectly. His photographs were beautifully set and lit, and he went about his work on the evening completely unobtrusively even though over 100 people were packed into a relatively small and stuffy space. I look forward very much to working with Nigel again in the years to come - his pictures were quite simply some of the best of a public gathering I have ever seen! I thoroughly recommend Nigel's work to anyone who is looking for a photographer with an eye for a beautiful picture and with the knowledge and ability to create fantastic results for a client."
Friends of the Earth Cymru - Gareth Clubb Director
"Nigel's photography yet again captured the essence of a public event…"
Angela Gidden MBE: ANGELA GIDDEN STUDIO, Nomad & Nest, attic 2
“We’d been staring at blank uninspiring walls for a couple of years. It wasn’t that we didn’t know what to put on them but more about making sure that we invested well. We were waiting for something to catch our eye and capture our imagination. Nigel’s first collection did just that, almost taking us by complete surprise. Beautifully executed almost graphically simple yet striking pieces of art perfect for the large open plan space we had in mind. As a collection the series ‘One Seed’ was very strong, strong enough for us to invest in three pieces, strong enough to make a dynamic difference to our space but subtle enough to complement and partner other statement pieces of art and design we own.”
