About 209 Women …. Hilary Wood, creator and director, said:

We had a very productive collaboration with Nicola when photoshooting our Italian deli products. She is super professional, patient, very kind and friendly, passionate with her work! We will definitely work together again when a photoshooting need occurs. Highly recommended!

I have known and worked with Nicola for many years. She has taken wonderful photographs at many of our school fashion shows. Nothing is too much trouble for her and her approach to every job is professional and extremely creative. She has a caring and intuitive manner especially when photographing our students and models.

Nicola Morley has been a great help with my instagram pictures, I have a independent ladies dress shop and need great pictures . I have known her a long time, she’s very reliable and organised we achieved a lot in one day I would definitely recommend her.

Nicola was very professional, accommodating and personable. I always felt comfortable with her and she made sure I was happy with the results. I would highly recommend Nicola as a photographer.

Nicola is a perfectionist and knew exactly how to get the best out of my English bull terrier, Olive. She is dedicated to her career in photography and is hugely talented in many fields.


Lens Culture :  on 'Coercion'

These are a beautiful series of images, well composed and colour graded. .....Have you considered making it into a book? .... Please continue this project alongside your commercial practice. I would contact some charities and show your work. It may be that you get commissioned for a campaign on domestic abuse. .... It has been a real pleasure spending time with your work and being introduced to your commercial photography. You are very talented.


Lens Culture :  on portraits 

You have some very strong work in your submission. I can clearly perceive your desire to use your photographic vision to create a compelling and aesthetic document of the world around you. ...These are fine portraits. ...I've enjoyed viewing your work, and I hope to see more in the future.

Lens Culture : on ‘The Winds of Change’

I find this group of images very exciting. You are clearly a strong image maker. Each photograph feels deeply considered and beautifully composed. This is a very interesting subject and story.
