Across four organisations I have worked with Michelle and value greatly her ability to empathise, define and develop your ideas into an outcome that achieves your goals and objectives but also makes a deep connection between your film or still project and the audience who you are wanting to connect too. Always a pleasure to collaborate with.
I’ve had the privilege of working with Michelle on a number of projects and the result is always outstanding. Michelle is incredibly intuitive in her work, whilst shooting to a tight and complicated schedule, she is still able to capture additional insights and moments that really enhance the project. Working with Michelle on projects that cover very sensitive subjects and multiple stakeholders is incredibly easy, she is able to be insightful and responsive without being intrusive. I greatly appreciate Michelle’s responsiveness and her capacity to manage multiple competing (and rapidly changing) client priorities. She produces beautiful, insightful films and pictures that are an incredible asset to any organisation.
I’d like to let you know that I really enjoyed the two hour photography workshop on Monday evening! Although I’ve done one other 3-day workshop…and I’ve tried to teach myself a bit from books, I came away from your workshop with a real sense of “aha!” Now I get some fairly basic things that I’d been approaching wrongly (important basic things, like ISO!!) I found your teaching style worked really well for me 🙂
I just wanted to drop you a line and say a massive thanks for the photo course just gone.
14 years ago myself and hubby went to Tasmania, and I was so upset that I didn’t get a single ‘good’ photo. This time around, armed with your advice, I’m pleased to report that I have a bucket load of good photos!! It was a joy to take the holiday, knowing that I had a reasonable chance of capturing the shot I wanted. So again, thank you. I really enjoyed the sessions and the proof is in the photos from the last three weeks.
Michelle’s infectious passion for photography infused each session with extremely accessible information which built and layered with each weeks exercises. Besides learning what the camera was capable of and how to switch to manual for good, I found I was seeing differently and noticing the world in a different way. I thoroughly recommend Michelle and her professionally run, fun MDP DSLR courses. Just do it!!
“Michelle is great to work with, always very punctual and most importantly her work (images) are first class! Michelle understands very quickly and precisely what is required once briefed.
I shouldn’t really recommend her as a good photographer is a bit like a good baby sitter, keep the details to yourself!”
“Michelle has an uncanny ability to capture the centre of your being for three minutes, without you feeling a thing. It is not until you see yourself through her eyes, do tears fall from your own!”
“Thanks so much for the course, it was amazing… can’t wait to put your suggestions into action. The course was so professional and the ideas so well organised I loved it. It’s totally changed my photographic life!”
“These look fantastic! Thank you so much!! She is a truly inspirational person and it really shows through in these photos.”
“These are brilliant.. absolutely brilliant!
IF you could see my smile, right now… I was laughing so hard the neighbour… (quite a good friend of mine) came in to see what was happening. This is exactly what I wanted and more.”
“Really enjoyed Michelle’s SLR course, everything was explained in detail and in a way we understood and Michelle was a lovely person to be around, would defiantly highly recommend!”
“This has been a thoroughly fantastic course. You have a very good manner & patience… I have learnt a lot of practical skills which is why I enrolled in the first place. Thank you.”
“Loved this workshop for many reasons – thoroughly enjoyed the philosophy through to the technical approach”
“This course gave me a really good understanding of how my camera works and provided the skills I need to be able to photograph well in a range of settings and has given me the confidence to take my camera of Auto mode.”
“The Power is Yours……Michelle enable me to go from totally shooting photos in auto mode to being confident enough to move to manual and want to stay there…..learning from our mistakes and her encouragement of group discussions and sharing her passion is inspiring. I would encourage anyone with a desire to master their camera to get in touch with Michelle and let her guide you, excite you and celebrate your learning with you.”
“Michelle took a professional portrait of me that I am using on my website and social media accounts. I was very very happy with the portrait and recommend Michelle to anyone that needs a professional image of themselves. It is well worth the investment as your picture is your brand and an online representation of who you are that is there forever. If ever anyone else googles you, you need to be in control of what images there are of you out there. Michelle is a very friendly professional photographer and as I said, I recommend her always.”
“You have done a brilliant job. They are so well done, well positioned, positive and photogenic.
Many thanks for these.”
