BAFTA commissioned Ricky Darko this year to cover some areas of our extensive coverage of the EE British Academy Film Awards and the House of Fraser British Academy Television Awards as well as the British Academy Games Awards. I found Ricky to be very pleasant to work with as well as his attention to the brief that was given he went out of his way to secure imagery that we would be able to use within the context of showcasing the whole evening. His contribution to the team was exemplary and we will certainly be using him again for events and awards in the future.

I would highly recommend Ricky for full coverage of any photography project. He captures great reportage of events and each photo is framed and composed well. He is a great addition to have onsite at events and is a self motivated highly skilled photographer.

We didn’t want traditional wedding photos but wanted something different and a more contemporary approach to our wedding. Ricky listened, was detailed, suggested ideas and really grasped what we were like and what we wanted. Between us we decided on a great format. On the day he was perfect. Taking photos on the fly, in the background but there if and when needed for specific shots. Add to this that he is one of the nicest blokes he comes fully recommended by us. So many of our guests commented on how lovely Ricky was. We ended with a story of the day that we can relive which when we first viewed bought tears to our eyes. That is the measure of a really great photographer!!
