DE Photo - Testimonials
'I started as a DE Photo Franchisee in February 2005 and I have not looked back. The back up from the company is everything they said it would be. It is a fantastic way of life, being involved with many sports and events – it is certainly better than working!'David May, Redhill
'After spending many years in a corporate sales environment it has been a complete breath of fresh air joining DE Photo. I now look forward to going to work and spending my days with people with smiles on their faces and getting compliments about my work.'Tom Keirle, Northampton
'In my first year I met Jeremy Clarkson, sat in a Lamborghini, held the FA Cup, the Powergen Trophy, shook hands with an MP and got well paid for it all!'Clarke Penrice, Oxford
'I have to say that taking up this franchise was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I no longer suffer the politics that working for a large corporate inevitably brings. Instead, my whole life is now revolving around me and my choices. All that I now achieve in my life is for me - which is like a breath of fresh air. DE Photo has enabled me to get on in with my life and the more I put into the job, the greater the benefits are for me.'John Young, Maidstone
'The DE Photo system is tried and tested and the franchise has successfully evolved over the years to become the UK's number one Event Photography business. Franchisees don't have to sell anything - the product does that all by itself..! . The business model does work and I for one plan to be with DE Photo for a very long time…!!!'Clive Carruthers, Milton Keynes
'We started by working as photographers for a DE Branch in 2007 and soon realised it was a business that was enjoyable and profitable. DE Photo was a great opportunity for us to work in photography and sport, both of which we are passionate about. It’s a set up that organisers, competitors and parents love and you quickly become part of each club you attend, which not only creates great relationships but repeated work. The overall setup is great and running our own business gives us freedom and full control over your careers.'Lee Jenkins & Rob Skilton, Bristol
'Working for myself is enjoyable when you have such fantastic support from the DE Photo head office. Everything is made easy, from ordering stock, to the development of our fabulous new website, always researching new products and ideas to stay ahead of our competition. I’ve been with DE Photo since 2008, doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun!'Lilya Jones
'I have been running my DE photo franchise since 2007, and the business model continues to prove successful, even in these difficult financial times. Customers are genuinely grateful and happy to be able to purchase a high quality photograph of their child, and at many events, the photography is an important integral part of the event. There is continuous upgrading of systems and website development to ensure that the latest modes of internet viewing and ordering are catered for, and this sits comfortably alongside the on-site sales. I genuinely believe that no-one does it better than DE Photo!'John Maxfield
'I have been with DE Photo since September 2009, and not many people are lucky enough to be able to make a living from what was a hobby. There is a great network within the DE Photo community, with everyone willing to help each other out, from the most experienced Franchisee, to all at Head Office. Here's looking forward to many more DE years!!'Richard Chubb
'This is coming up for my 6th Summer with DE Photo, and I can honestly say it just gets better each year. I genuinely look forward to each days challenges and rewards with equal anticipation. It is a fantastic opportunity for anyone willing to put in the effort and time and not before long being able to reap the rewards. I love meeting people and telling them I love my job, as I don’t believe they hear that said very often nowadays. It seems I am the exception!'Chris Coe
