To whom it may concern
Art of Management & Organization commissioned Simon Riddell to provide photographic coverage of our 9th international conference between the 1st-4th August 2018 in Brighton, UK. The brief Simon was provided with was broad and open. We wanted him to take risks, maximise the creative and artistic opportunities that the conference presents but also document the happenings throughout the conference in ways that would be marketable and demonstrative of our activities to future audiences.
Simon worked incredibly well. He is very independent and quickly built excellent relationships with delegates to put them at ease. The rooms and spaces inhabited by the conference were both challenging in terms of light and space but also real privileges to work in. Simon photographed high profile guests and performances in situ including Richard Durrant and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestera in the Sallis Benney Theatre, the Brighton Pavilion and the Grand Hotel.
Simon’s photographs were dynamic, poignant and surpassed our expectations. He incredibly committed, working 12 hours days to cover the conference programme, and is very personable. He also went above and beyond by sharing the images via social media to help maintain an on-line presence for the conference. I am certain Simon would excel in the role.

I could not recommend Simon highly enough for any type of photography. He immediately puts you at ease, is very professional and takes great attention to detail. I wish him every success.
