Eileen Long is an ambitious and intrepid photographer, who never says no to a challenge. She straddles the divide between documentary and fine art practices, recently having become more heavily engaged in portraiture.

I have been a tutor to Eileen at Plymouth College of Art since 2009. In the time that I have known her she has been an exemplary student in every respect.
She is a highly motivated and driven individual who always works hard and can be relied upon to give 100%.

These are memories that will last a lifetime on my wall! You put my sometimes shy, 4 year old daughter at ease and brought the best out in her which is difficult to portray in photos sometimes, however you managed it!
Your attention to detail was impeccable and this was reflected in the photos.
_ Jade Easton, Client
I have worked with Eileen on several commercial projects for high profile clients. She is professional in her approach and her photographs are high quality and show creative flair. She is enthusiastic and has a relaxed, easy manner that puts people at ease, from children to chief executives.
