What our clients say
Chaz has an eye for what makes a photo different. Not standard, not necessarily off-the-wall, but something different. He’s dedicated to his work, and a whole lot more besides. You can rely and depend on him to see you right.
Chris GardenerStrategic Mentors
Chaz helped me run an event a few weeks ago and did a fantastic job. He was ever so professional and got on with things whilst I sorted out a load of press interviews. This kind of self starting attitude was exactly what we needed.
I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Chaz again.
Holly TyzackBottle PR
Chaz is a great photographer with an eye for detail. He was brilliant at understanding the brief, and we got exactly the pictures we were after.
We have used him on several occasions, and hope to continue to do so – he is very easy to work with!
Melanie HudsonHeadington School
I hate having my photo taken and I don’t know how Chaz did it, but I am so happy with my head shots. They look natural, they’re me at my best and it was so easy! Chaz captured exactly what I wanted and I would highly recommend him to anyone that wants a professionally produced photograph.
His eye for detail is amazing. Thank you for some fantastic photos. Very happy.
Erin RigaultPeppermint Mortgage Services
I have worked with Chaz on several events including The Oxford United Community Trust Gala Dinner and a number of Oxford United’s United in Business networking events. Not only is Chaz a real pleasure to work with, he is also a fantastic photographer and is as professional as they come.
He has great brand awareness and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to capture a corporate event.
Georgina FellOxford United Football Club
I am a garden lighting designer and installer. I used Chaz to professionally photograph my clients new garden lighting system at night. Quite a challenging thing to accomplish because it was dark. I was delighted with the results, Chaz took a great deal of time and attention with each of the photos.
I am very happy to recommend him as the results were first class.
Steve WingLight My NIght
Chaz listened and understood our brief and carried it forward quickly, simply and with a twist of humour and fun, which is how we work best.
We’re looking forward to hiring his expertise and no messing, plain English charm again very soon.

I have enjoyed working with Chaz immensely when I hired him to undertake some artful photography for a motoring magazine article that I wrote. I was looking for something cool and contemporary yet businesslike and Chaz met this criteria exactly. His ideas were great and have translated extremely well and I am delighted with the finished results. And it only took a few shots to get exactly what I needed! He is personable and professional and also met my very tight deadline on time, going the extra mile to ensure that he could do this.
I am happy to recommend Chaz and we will definitely be using his professional services for all photography needs here at Ridgeway Jaguar.

We wanted funky, far out photography and wot we got woz FISHEYE. Sez it all. Use this dude if you have nerds.
Annie PennSmokin Donut
We engaged Chaz to take some shots in readiness for our rebrand and after seeing his work we were over the moon with the way it has lifted our image. On top of that he was not a ‘lovey’ which was our previous experience with photographers. He was no nonsense and ‘let’s get down to it’ – Very impressive!
We will be retaining Chaz for all our imagery from now on.
Darren FieldThe New Driveway Company
Right from the start Chaz was easy to communicate with and I knew we would get on. He is flexible and creative and was a total pleasure to work with. On the day, we wanted some outdoor shots and Chaz tried but the weather wasn’t really on our side. Chaz suggested we could get the same informal feel we were looking for inside and he was right. He did more than the brief and was very happy to direct and create. It was a total pleasure to spend time with him.
We look forward to working with Chaz again in the future.
Helen HutchingsWhat to Wear on Holiday
Chaz was incredibly helpful sorting out a mess of domain names and email addresses for us, as part of a website change. Although very knowledgeable, he took the time to explain the issues to me with out resulting to “cyperbabble”; instead he talked through what the issues were, and explained what needed to be done. And then he fixed it.
Steve VaughanSam and Steve Photography
A very short time after meeting Chaz we have generated a very close working relationship within Goldfish Media, collaborating on many projects. First and foremost Chaz is a fantastically gifted photographer, but also has a plethora of knowledge on other creative and technical skills, this, coupled with his relaxed and friendly approach makes him a thoroughly nice and valuable person to know. As well as talent, it has been said that ‘people buy people’ if that is the case Chaz is a fantastic investment.
Five stars out of five for me!
Warren BrownBrown Creative
We were looking for a photographer to shoot images of our guest rooms, restaurant and food dishes for use on our website and social media. From our initial enquiry, through to receiving edited photographs Chaz was extremely professional and the images we now use are of the highest quality.
Overall we have been very pleased with the results and will be sure to use Chaz’s services again in the future.
Paul SummersBear & Ragged Staff
I have always used professional photography to showcase our properties for sale, but the reason I now use Chaz Snell exclusively is because, from the moment I first engaged him, not only has his work always been superb but Chaz himself has been dedicated, consummate and professional at every step.
Rowan WallerWallers of Oxford
I was on the look out for a photographer with a difference, a photographer that would make my business stand out from the rest. It certainly helps that he is a wizard with the camera, and the photos we receive showcasing our homes we have for sale are second to none, but the most important aspect of his service is “his service”…… Polite, punctual, happy to help you out when needed, goes that extra mile to make sure the job is done to a high standard and specification. Wide Angles Property Marketing Services represent Taylor Cox in the best possible way.
Highly recommend to anyone!

Chaz is an amazing photographer. The Better Letter and Chaz have been working together for a number of months. The photographs that Chaz takes really enhance the appeal of our rental properties, which means that we let them quickly.
Chaz came to The Better Letter highly recommended and has exceeded our expectations.
Simon FisherThe Better Letter
Chaz came to photograph my property for marketing purposes. I was immediately impressed by his mix of professionalism and friendliness. Welcoming a strange man into your home is quite a daunting prospect, yet his manner put me at ease instantly. He took on the role of marketeer and made small adjustments to each room to optimise the impact of his photographs, offering advice on arrangement of furniture and accessories to show the potential of the rooms and the end result was a set of beautiful, well framed and honest photographs that played an integral role in my house receiving an offer within weeks of going to market.
I would recommend Chaz if you want similar results! Thank you x
Chaz came along to our Rainbow Run event as a volunteer photographer, using his professional photography skills and experience to help us cover this spectacular event. We had only one photographer of our own and as you can imagine with 4 paint points and family photos to take for the media and for the families themselves it is absolutely impossible to cover the various aspects of the event.
Chaz was brilliant. He arrived full of enthusiasm and on his bike so he could get from one paint point to the other quickly. I didn’t have to tell him what photos to take as his experience meant he knew what to do, could be as creative as he liked and simply capture the fun and wonderful colours of this family run. We truly couldn’t have managed without him.

I would certainly recommend Chaz’s services. A personal, yet professional service! Always a warm and helpful response with an unbelievable turnaround time.
