I am pleased to serve as an enthusiastic referee for Rupert Shanks as a Unit Stills Photographer.
We were thrilled with the images captured by Rupert during the recent shoot for 'As He Lay Falling', a Creative-Scotland funded drama. Many positive comments have been received about them - both the behind-the-scenes material and the Production Stills are of outstanding quality.
As impressive as the photographs Rupert took was the manner in which he conducted his craft. Joining our shoot partway through could have been extremely difficult, but Rupert entered that intense situation with grace and professionalism. It was as if Rupert had always been with us.
I have produced numerous feature films and short dramas. I can honestly say that Rupert is one of the best Stills Photographers I have worked with. The approach and the results are top-notch.
I hope to work with Rupert again in future projects, as he would be a very valuable addition to any Production as a Stills Photographer.

Rupert produced a suite of promotional imagery and inspirational videos for 4 of our range of 5 star hotels throughout Chile. The quality of the imagery was fantastic and has been a huge help in our online and print promotion. The videos have also been a very valuable asset to our online presence and marketing. Both stills and video have been used by mainstream press.
Rupert was extremely reliable throughout the project and responded very well to each creative brief and understood our brand intuitively. He handles pressure well and constantly worked to meet our deadlines. In my opinion I consider Rupert to be an invaluable asset to any project he works on.
I highly recommend him.
Rupert managed to capture not only the super-charged ambiance of the event but also the pure elation of musicians and fans alike. The quality of the sound and the overall composition are outstanding. The finished result is an invaluable promotional tool but, more importantly, a slick, ultra-cool, easily accessible, eternal memento.
The finished material, both stills and movie, came out really well. He is a great crew
member and I would have no hesitation in recommending him for any marine work that comes his
As Chilean Heliski has only launched recently, Rupert's imagery (both stills and video) have been fantastic for online and print promotion and have also been picked up by international and industry press.
