Chantall Le Maitre (photoshoot)
The photo shoot was so much fun Mitchell made my family feel very comfortable.

Sarah (Claren’s Feedback)
A fantastic photo opportunity to photograph amazing landscapes. The scenes set the mood for some outstanding HDR images that show the true beauty of Clarens.

Kevin (Claren’s Feedback)
I loved my swim in the cold lake. I loved taking photos in the morning it was cold but fun.

Alex (Claren’s Feedback)
Clarens was such an amazing experience because “our family” were together making new memories and taking thousands upon thousands of photos. I will cherish all the memories and the friendships made on that tour for a lifetime. The quad biking, hiking on a “flat hike” and Paula going around the circle seven times were the best experience.

Josua (Claren’s Feedback)
I had the most amazing experience in Clarens with Getpix. It was cold but we all enjoyed it so much. The laughter never stopped no matter what.

Sam (Claren’s Feedback)
I enjoyed seeing the sky filled with stars. I enjoyed all the places we went to and enjoyed being surrounded by the mountains.

Armand (Claren’s Feedback)
I enjoyed the fun activities that we had to do. The accommodation where we stayed was beautiful. I enjoyed talking to everyone and getting to know everyone.

Mitchell (Claren’s Feedback)
Clarens was a beautiful scene to shoot. The air was fresh, the stars were bright and the company was awesome. Clarens was fun.

Michaela (Claren’s Feedback)

I would like to give a huge thank you to yourself and Getpix for sponsoring the camera course for our Christmas in July function.

You will definitely have an enthusiastic student :)

Grant Hewitt (Beginner’s Photography August 2016)
I really enjoyed learning about the camera itself and its different functions, like how to adjust shutter speed and the image aperture. The different techniques I was taught was also great. I got a bit stuck with when to correctly use the metering and I struggled to make sense of how far to adjust it. ‘Very enthusiastic and made the whole course more enjoyable. Creating interest in furthering skills and becoming a more active photographer.

Good morning Getpix people! Last night I completed my last class in beginner’s photography, and I’m missing it already! A big big thank you to Steve.

Melissa Absil (Beginner’s Photography November 2013)
I had a great time yester morning on my Beginner’s Course- thank you Rowan. And although it was a lot to absorb on the first day, I can honestly say that I learnt quite a bit. I also intend on doing a lot of practising before our next session, and will print out and go through the Canon 10D manual to further familiarize myself with the features I have learnt so far. Thank you for the additional information, I really appreciate it.

Getpix you were such sweeties for giving us an abstract woman with red luscious lips, high heels and a tattoo that was reconnecting with nature! Don’t forget the goggas with the paint and stationary which was very weird and wacky but at least our open skyline is in Africa, not such a rotten place! You gave us all food for thought and had us running around in circles and squares to take photos of all things great and small which truly ended up being bright and beautiful…. thank you!

Les Green (Awards Evening November 2013)
