YORK OPEN STUDIOS 2019: SELECTED ARTIST exhibition: April 2019

Nigel is the in-house photographer at the branding agency Bower.




Running a photoshoot is always a bit nerve racking. You know you only have a short window to get all the shots you need. It was no different for the KOKK brand shoot. 

What you need is a relaxed, fun, super creative photographer that just knows what you need, how to get it and just gets on with it. No fuss, no ego, just an exceptional eye for great shots. Meet Nigel! He has years of experience working brand, innovation and design work so he doesn’t just take photos he takes photos that you need and will work where you need them to work be it online or offline. He immediately understands a brand and is able to capture the feel and enhance it. He is simply brilliant to work with and enables you to just relax and know things are being taken care of and…when those photos land it’s with excitement you open them, not trepidation.. KOKK are absolutely delighted with the work done to date and will be using Nigel time and time again.

"The process of working with Bower and Boxfish Photography has been invaluable to our business. The benefit of the outputs that they produced is obvious – high quality, professional branding and marketing material which presents our practice in the best possible light.  We continue to work with them and would be very happy to recommend them to others".

Tom Robbins / Partner

Jazz Hair Studio

"We have used Boxfish for capturing some great images both for our website and marketing campaigns which we have used for the last year. Nigel is professional, friendly and we would happily recommend him, thank you!"

Cathy Roberts / Owner


Twisted Cogs

"When I started Twisted Cogs I knew I needed professional images for my website but like a lot of people I prefer to be hidden away and not a main focus. Nigel understood the objective in more ways than one and with his friendly and professional approach provided useful advice together with a set of great images that I have been able to use on my website and social media campaigns for over a year".

Tom Cropper / Owner


Elena Headshots

"I had always disliked having my photos taken, always disliked how I looked in pictures and was convinced that I am rather non-photogenic. After a session with Nigel, I have changed my mind. Photo sessions can be fun! And when I saw the results... I glowed all day! Smashing! Brilliant work – thank you!"

Jacey Headshots

"Unless you're a model or a celebrity - or utterly self-absorbed with a crippling Instagram habit - having your photo taken is always a slightly strange experience. Sadly, I'm not allowed to use a picture of Elizabeth Taylor as a substitute for my own face on business communications, so I thought I'd better get the professionals in. Nigel was that professional. He flipped that strange experience into one verging on fun. The results are good too. The images look like me, only better. I assure you, this is high praise indeed, coming from someone who hates having her photo taken".

Jacey Lamerton / Killer Content


The Empire States (band)

"Nigel clearly has a love for photography which comes across in his work. Not only did he make us feel comfortable with his friendly demeanor, he produced outstanding photographs we used for our website. Cannot recommend Nigel enough".



Ali Headshots

I am more than comfortable taking a lifestyle selfie shot of myself as I share how to be healthy and live healthily.  But the time came for me to me to be able to respond to requests for a headshot with a more professional offering.  However, the thought of being photographed and analysed had me paralysed for a long time before I plucked up the courage to ask Nige.  I needn't have been so worried as his gentle coaxing, relaxed attitude, professional guidance with his assistant providing the entertainment and informal atmosphere made me feel very comfortable for the 2 hours or so it took to get the perfect 'healthy headshot' relevant for all platforms and communications. I am delighted with the results and looking forward to working with Boxfish again in the future.

The Ulleskelf Arms

"Nigel ensured that we had a set of pictures which would work for multiple events throughout the year. He talked us through the process and checked that what he was doing was what we needed/ wanted. 

I had a moment of doubt when he suggested some things which he believed would work really well on our website, I thought they needed to be quite traditional but when I saw the results I was blown away.

I think the pictures are excellent and I would strongly recommend Boxfish to any business".
