I have worked with Mike for years, mainly for external landscape photographs across the country. In recent years we have also used Mike to photograph our property portfolio at Classic Cottages. All images produced by Mike are incredibly good quality and he is quick and efficient when working together. Highly recommended.

Mike has been lead photographer on our cookbooks, The Surf Cafe Cookbook and Surf Cafe Living. During our time shooting for the book, Mike was amazing. Mike seems to capture the essence of both food and lifestyle with complete ease. When someone makes things look easy, you know they are good. Every picture, from a closeup of a berry to a sunset shot, is executed with amazing angles, clarity and style. I feel Mike added huge value to our project and brought our books to life with his photography.
We are always being complimented on the pictures in our book so I find it very easy to recommend Mike for any project.

I've worked with Mike for a few years now on numerous food projects. He is so easy to work with and get creative with! I've never been disappointed with the results. I can’t recommend Mike enough and look forward to our next project!

Mike was great to work with - a true professional with a great creative eye for detail that went above and beyond the requirements of our brief. He totally 'got' our brand, and translated that into the look and feel of the photos, which have transformed our website and made it look much more engaging and easy on the eye.

Mike Searle has worked with Excess Energy a number of times. His images completely resonate with the kind of style and energy we’re seeking. Mike’s always right on the button — keen to be briefed in advance so he can pre-plan, early, organised and ready with all the right kit. He always works hard on the day, for as long as necessary, to get the right shots in the right conditions.

I have worked with Mike over a number of years and a wealth of different clients and sectors. He never fails to blow minds. I can thoroughly recommend him.Mike is a great professional, not simply a great photographer. He has a firm understanding of what you are trying to achieve and adds so much to his work that the results are always way beyond what you had hoped for.
