"Harniman is not only a top-quality photographer in the artistic and technical sense, he's professional and easy to work with. Not attributes commonly found in the same photographer!"
Steve Brouwer – JWT Team Detroit

"Harniman and his team consistently over deliver. They are a joy to collaborate with and fully understand the art and craft of photography and CGI. As a creative I always feel I'm in safe hands."
Jamie Tierney, Deputy Creative Director & Head of Film, Kitcatt Nohr Digitas London (Lexus)

"I have worked with Harniman as a photographer since 1995 and with Air-CGI since 2009, this is a testament to the relationship we have developed and the professionalism constantly shown. Having always delivered on quality, timings and budget, I have no hesitation in saying that whatever your visual requirements may be, Nigel and the team should be at the top of your list to contact."
Jon Harrison, Partner, Unsuitable/ OneBlackBear Birmingham (Subaru and others)

"The Air-CGI/ Harniman Photographer team deliver consistently on budget and on time while maintaining excellent quality standards. The teams experience and expertise is second to none and the results that they produce speak for themselves.
I would not hesitate to recommend working with Harniman."
Fredrik Tottie, Marketing Director, Subaru Nordic, Sweden.

"The L200 campaign was always going to be a challenge – to create virtual landscapes made from hard, tough and sharp man-made objects, challenging our perception of scale and reality. Coupled with their track record, Air CGI showed an uncompromising commitment to the job which made them the perfect partner to work with. Their dedication, attention to detail and willingness to experiment long into the night resulted in a set of stunning visuals which went beyond the brief, exceeded our expectations and left us with a very happy client."
Richard Daughton, Senior Art Director, Golley Slater Cardiff (Mitsubishi)

"I've worked with Harniman & Air-CGI a couple times. He's fantastic to work with, he's got a great eye for the right shot, and he's really improved my ideas for the better with his knowledge and experience. He's one name I put forward when looking for photographers for any automotive project."
Henry Billington, Art Director, Palmer Hargreaves.

"If you want to achieve high quality results, work with Harniman. He has the experience, knowhow and talent to bring your projects alive and ensure a positive outcome for your investment in time and money. Also, Nigel being highly personable ensures a great working relationship during the project. I would always hire him first, if I could book him!"
Darin Enefer, Partner, Mercuri International.

"Harniman has worked with me on a number of projects at Jaguar Land Rover and has always delivered top-notch results no matter what the time constraints are. He has an uncanny knack for finding the right composition in any circumstances - which also transfers over to his CGI work.
There are a lot of CGI companies out there but not many with a great photographer guiding them!"
Simon Roebuck Communications Officer Jaguar Land Rover.
