“A very mature head on young shoulders along with his attention to detail and general love of what he does really shows in his work. He's a natural photographer who continues to delight and surprise us all with pictures that really say something.”

Richard Blake, Director at RB Create

“Toby Butler is not only an amazingly gifted individual who can capture a variety of subjects in a plethora of environments, he is also one of the kindest, and most considerate people I've had the pleasure of working with. He's quick to move on operations, and knows when to question and learn in order to help the entire process in a timely fashion. His work and his ethics stand strong with his desire to capture and create with some of the best in the world.”

Christian McLeod, Founder of Ansel

“It was a few years back when I first ran into Toby, ducking in and out of shelter through snow squalls, weathering the December cold of the North West. Over the next few weeks he would appear in the same fashion, quietly unannounced, putting in the time where most would not. Dedicated to capturing the moods he saw, his style has since developed to reflect the surrounds he has grown up with. Since then he’s treaded the line between the vogue of clichéd wanderlust and the hardcore surf scene with a maturity beyond his years.”
