what our clients say


Jon and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour around the Mornington Peninsula with George and Terry. We were taken to some fabulous locations and we learnt a lot about long exposure using Haida filters and even some new functions within our cameras. George was very helpful and provided excellent advice regarding landscape compositions and things to consider when setting up for a shot. A lot of fun and laughter was had. Thank you George for a great day out.

Hi Karolin and George,

First of all, I want to thank you both so much for the wonderful day

Over and above the fact that you are true professional and talented
artists, you are clearly very, very skilled educators who obviously
love what you do both as an artistic pursuit and as a sharing and
teaching experience.

I really did have a fantastic day 🙂.
