The Clothing Company

“CC Collections has exclusively used John Spurdle of Real Pictures, for our TV adverts and photographic print media. John has always made high quality television advertisements for us, normally at short notice. We have always been 100% appreciative of his creative input, and John has delivered excellent advertisements at a reasonable cost. Being a smaller agency means that we have always had personal attention. We have pleasure in recommending his services to anyone.”

“John Spurdle was recommended to Medisure when we decided to advertise on television. Having met John we felt he was very quickly in tune with the message we wanted to convey to the public. John has produced two advertisements for us and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who wants a professional job done at a fair cost.”

Deer Industry New Zealand

“We have worked with John Spurdle of Real Pictures Ltd. on three projects in the past 3 years.  We are delighted with the professionalism of the work carried out to date.  We were mindful that the work undertaken on our behalf needed to be of the highest quality and we weren’t disappointed. John’s attention to detail was amazing and when he was required to shoot part of a training video where he had to actually get in at close quarters with various mobs of sometimes aggressive deer, that certainly carried some risks, it didn’t stop John from doing a great job.
I would highly recommend anyone working with Real Pictures Ltd.”
