KIND WORDS

 
HAVING WORKED WITH KARL MACKIE SINCE 2014 HAS BEEN ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF MY CAREER IN BOTH BUSINESS AND BRANDING.
KARL HAS THE RARE ABILITY TO DELIVER IMAGERY THAT TELLS A COMPLETE STORY WITHOUT THE NEED FOR EXCESS COPY.
HE IS MY GO TO PHOTOGRAPHY PARTNER ON ALL MY BRANDING PROJECTS AND I LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH HIM FOR YEARS.
— RALPH DUNNING - BRAND UNIFICATION.
 
 
WE WANT THE BRAND TO BE ABOUT TAKING A STEP BACK AND FOCUSING ON THE BIGGER PICTURE. YOUR PICS REPRESENT THAT, ESPECIALLY YOUR CORNWALL ONES, SO SO EMOTIVE AND DESCRIBE THE FEELING OF THE AREA. IT’S OFTEN LIKE YOU HAVE ACCIDENTALLY AND INTRUSIVELY CAPTURED A SACRED MOMENT IN TIME THAT SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN CAPTURED AND SHOULD HAVE PASSED BY WITHOUT ANOTHER THOUGHT.... AND OUR DAYS ARE MADE OF THOSE. IT’S HAPHAZARD AND RANDOM AND SUBLIMELY BEAUTIFUL.
— TIM CRABTREE - LAND & SEA NOOSA.
