“I’m on a high. Thank you.  You reignited my love for photography I had all those years ago.”



“Great workshop Lara..a truly informative and learning experience. Such a great day.”



“Firstly, can I say that you have chosen the best name for the workshop? 

I had the most fabulous day. The day certainly reignited the joy. Thank you again.”


"Loved the workshop, nice pace and well structured.
This has brought back the joy of taking the photos I want rather than letting the camera do everything."



“Your workshop on Saturday was so enjoyable, enlightening, and inspiring! I feel much more confident to go out and take amazing photos! Thank you for sharing your life story, knowledge, and studio as well as your two beautiful children and doggies. 


"My head is spinning a bit but what a wonderful experience today’s workshop was.  I’m looking forward to taking what I’ve learned and putting it into practice.  Our small group had a lovely amount of time to ask questions and play with settings and utilise those in your studio setups.  Thank you so much to Archie and Rissie for looking after us so well with getting coffee and being very patient models as we played.  Whether you want to take your photography to the next level or if like me to just improve on my skills for my own enjoyment. Getting me fully off manual settings was my reason for attending this workshop.  I would therefore recommend that others take up the opportunity next time it’s presented."


"Thanks Lara, I found this very helpful and has gotten me keen to get out taking photos again (hopefully much better than previous)."


"Thanks Lara for an amazing day! Your passion shone through & you’re an amazing teacher! You have reignited a photography spark in me & I'm already taking multiple photos & asking the kids to pose for me."


"What an amazing day you orchestrated. We finished with a glass of wine in front of the fire at the Commercial. We have swapped numbers and will have more time together when next in town. Can't ask for more than that....great content, passionate teacher, & new like-minded acquaintances."



In one day, you have changed my life. For the first time in my life, I feel centred,

call myself an "artist" instead of hiding from that place.  I acknowledge what and

who I am.  It’s a great step up.”
