“Through his use of space, sound, color, imagery, and words Neil follows the energies of life as they interact with your being to create a living field in which he shoots.
The results are indeed portraits of another order. He is a delight; and our session was much more than a “sitting.” It was an experience to remember.”

“Neil’s use of meditation with movement allows you to drop behind the veil of your consciousness to the place your subtle energies are at play.
With clear yet gentle instruction, he welcomes you to witness you as you truly are – energy, soulfulness, love and light.
His use of the colorful materials happens so naturally, at the end it’s as if awakening from a dream.”
Alicia Thakrar, London
”Thank you doesn’t seem to come close to expressing the gratitude I feel.
I was so surprised by the beauty in each picture. They are all so different, the contrast in shape and colour from image to image.
The thread of serenity that weaves them together. There isn’t one image that I do not feel deeply connected to, I love them all.
As I look through the selection I feel beautiful, safe, supported and loved. It’s how I feel when I meditate.
You really have captured me in the truest expression of my soul. Thank you for sharing your gift with me.”

“Neil offered me a unique experience to be a part of an extraordinary photo shoot.
It was a holistic experience, exploring the inner and outer layers of myself, and moving beyond any conceived ideas of posing for a shot.
We used sound, colour, and visualization to achieve what I believe to be truly unique portraits of myself.
I have been shot by countless photographers over the years from all over the world, and none have touched on this experience.
The results speak volumes, and can be interpreted on many levels.”

“Neil Seligman is not only an innovative and talented young artist; he is also an extremely intuitive, nurturing, and kind human being.
His photographs are a reflection of the profound connection you will make with him during the process,
and will serve as an astonishing reminder of how beautiful you are inside and out when you have the courage
to show your true self in the presence of another.”
John James Hickey, Los Angeles
“With the advent of photography, capturing a person’s likeness became easier for the portrait artist.
But a portrait is more than just a likeness. A good portrait captures the soul.
Neil’s distinctive portrait process does just that, it frees the subject from the worries of the physical self, and captures and illuminates their very inner essence.
The resulting images beautifully express the intricate complexities that make us unique.
The process of “sitting” for a portrait was both spiritually uplifting and artistically satisfying.
And I think the resulting images truly captured parts of me that I’ve known about myself, but never expressed.”
Tara Lee, London
“A portrait session with Neil is unlike anything you will have ever experienced.
He skilfully takes you on a journey through sounds and colours, capturing magical moments of graceful movement during the process.
The mesmerising photos really capture something beautiful – a person’s unique essence!”
Caleb Packham, London
“My Portrait session with Neil was an incredible experience that I will never forget. A profoundly healing and truly magical two hours.
Neil has an incredible gift whereby he is able to hold open a space for multidimensional expression.
Neil’s photographs of my session are stunning, capturing the true essence of my soul.
Every time I look at the pictures I am moved beyond words. Thank you Neil.”
Stephen Lue, London
“The shoot enabled me to connect with an elemental aspect within myself. The results were mind blowing.
It was like being seen in the same way your parents see you, or perhaps even how God sees you.
Through this self-affirming process I have come to understand my inner beauty in an even more colourful way.”
Richard Cole, Cardiff
”I found the experience surreal and dreamlike, as if I was in a hypnotic state but with a total awareness at the same time.
It was blissful to be completely unconnected from any worries or stresses and I love that these portraits have captured not only the moment itself
but also the emotions and sensations I experienced during the shoot too.”
