I paid for a shoot with they cancelled on me last minute via a message on facebook.

“Watch out ”

Written on: 21/02/2017 by Theresat1945 (1 review written)

I paid tiptop photography ltd £50 for a studio booking and gave my card details but instead they took £100 which I did not agree to. Upon speaking to them they apologised and promised my money back 3 months later I still did not get paid so I had to call my card money to get payment back. They also closed the studio so I didnt get to use it and refused to pay me back. Speaking to several other photographers a few of them had to take this shame company to court… Read Full Review

“Always Tip Top”

Written on: 23/10/2015 by KateJLC (1 review written)

I've had a lot of dealings with Tip Top this year ranging from attending training courses, workshops, studio days and their photography club and every dealing I've had has been positive. They have a real love for what they do along with a friendly and helpful approach to help you grow as photographer or get the best from the service you've bought. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these guys and I'll be using them lots more in the future too… Read Full Review

“Amazing x ”

Written on: 12/07/2015 by JoCox (1 review written)

I've finally come down to earth to write my review of Tiptop. We had the most amazing wedding day and Tiptop captured it all. We booked them a year in advance of our wedding, we paid in full at the time and was offered a choice of photobooth or Wedding album on top of the package we had selected. Coning close to the wedding I spoke to a lady a few times to confirm things and responses were always quick. She arranged to meet us at the church for the rehearsal and we went over do's and do not's… Read Full Review

“Amazing Studio .. Amazing People ”

Written on: 08/03/2015 by BirminghamFotoragphy (1 review written)

I first booked the TipTop Studio at the beginning of 2012. I had previously booked 2 or 3 other studios but since booking TipTop I haven’t looked anywhere else since. The studio itself is very large compared with other studios and is constantly being updated in terms of layout and design to keep things fresh. It also has a great range of props if required. It’s great to deal with a company where the owners have the same passion about photography as the photographers that are hiring it… Read Full Review

Goodness another review that is non descript about the persons actual personal experience but sounds like sales patter.

"A great time is had by both the children and adults a like ;-)"

Come on tip top photography stop deluding others and yourselves and start delivering a good service instead..... You may even sleep better at night!

So from reading the other reviews I can only guess you are someone that says you brought a lens from them form ebay rather than someone who has used any of TipTop business services.
If you had valid issues with your purchase I would have recommended using the Ebay service to resolve them at the time of purchase.


I am a Birmingham Photographer who as I have said in my reviews use the TipTop studio and other services on a regular basis and have never had any issues.

“Fantastic Company and Fantastic People!”

Written on: 06/03/2015 by KirstyWard (1 review written)

I would highly recommend the people I dealt with at Tip Top Photography. Not only are they lovely people to deal with, they are highly professional and deliver exactly what they promise. As photographers they are amazing (two of my friends and family members have had their wedding photos taken by them.)and the images are fantastic. As an amateur photographer, the training and guidance I have received from the people I dealt with has been fantastic and I have learnt so much. Their studio is… Read Full Review

More sales patter....

"Their studio is well equipped with everything you need and they are both always on hand to help, should you need them."

These guys must think that anybody who reads this is actually believing it to be sent by a person that is not connected with the owners and has had a real positive experience!!!

Just admit it "Tip Top", you're having to cover up your score because you deliver poor service, you only care about grabbing peoples money

I'm extremely offended by this.

I'm a Customer and all of my comments are my own and are not influenced by anyone Tip Top employed or not.

“fantastic”

Written on: 05/03/2015 by 78White (1 review written)

I recently had a photoshoot at TipTop and was very impressed. I was made to feel at ease and comfortable. The shoot itself was only part of the process as I was emailed with images for me to choose from to have edited. After I had chosen my final selection I was so happy with the final images I would definitely recommend them!… Read Full Review

Is this actually a real review?

It's posted the same day as another 5Star non descript review

Well I suppose it helps to get the scoring up!

“Fantastic studio and people”

Written on: 05/03/2015 by Norwood40 (1 review written)

I have used this studio for years and it is a fantastic place to work. They are the most friendliest people you will meet. They help you out at no extra cost, always willing to give advice and support and even find models at the last minute for you. Highly recommended… Read Full Review

“False advertisement & poor quality”

Written on: 09/12/2013

I bought a lens from this company on e-bay. They advertised it as 'excellent' & 'EXC++' condition but it was in a shocking state, with damage that was never described in the advert. They were refusing to take it back until I got e-bay to intervene and all I can say is thank god for e-bay 'buyer protection' as e-bay gave me my money back. They even attempted to trick me into closing the e-bay case by saying they had refunded my money when they had not. Their advert was unscrupulous and… Read Full Review

“Avoid at all costs”

Written on: 01/03/2013 by tone1892 (1 review written)

Tiptop photography has been the biggest mistake we ever made. We came across them at a wedding fayre in West Bromwich where there sales pitch was quite forthcoming and attractive. They seemed to be very friendly and eager to make the wedding memorable. We took there details and carried on. When it came to looking at booking a photographer we sent over details to a few local photographers of which Tiptop replied almost instantly at 9:30pm at night. There replies were instant and it seemed… Read Full Review

This is like reading my own review that I'm going to post. We had the same problem with Tip Top and the lack of communication from [name removed]. We, unfortunately paid the discounted amount after agreeing to meet up at our wedding venue... which we were let down via text after 45min of waiting in the hotel reception. It has taken us over a year to get our money back through court orders and bailiffs. One regret of our wedding... booking with this company. Luckily we cancelled and booked with [name removed] at Elite Photography who was amazing and everything we could've wished for and more.

I have since seen your review and cant believe the stress they put you through. We are so glad we were able to pull out before things got to this stage with us. Their sales pitch is heavily focused on making it a great experience when all they are really trying to do is get as much money out of people as possible

I know, I find it shocking that they can still run the business the way that they do. If you look for my review now, you may not find it. Tip Top have complained about it so I have to now send over my evidence to have my review put back online. It only shows that the truth hurts so they want to hide from it. We celebrated our one year anniversary in August and we are still waiting for the final amount of money from them through the solicitors. I hope you are in the same position.

We had exactly the same and now they want my details as well. I am glad i keep all our evidence at the touch of a button.
The only thing i can say about this is they have probably done this to so many people they have lost track and are trying to remove as much evidence as possible.

I just wish i had read all the reviews before being suckered in and losing our deposit.

Congratulations on your anniversary.

“Fantastic service”

Written on: 19/10/2012 by EmmaTrent (1 review written)

TipTop Photography photographed our wedding. They came out to the venue before the day, talked with us about our needs. On the day they were brilliant. Deb and Steve photographed us, Deb stayed with me at my mums and Steve went to the local pub with Gary. They photographed the ceremony, groups and speeches. We love our pictures, they delivered them on time and we have recommended them to other people. Lovely people, amazing service… Read Full Review
