" Guy, there are no words that I could use to express my gratitude and appreciation for your time as my teacher in the Certificate IV. You have helped me achieve amazing technical and creative skills. there is no doubt in my mind when I say the you made my first experience with photography a very pleasing one. I will miss using you in the hallways of building 94 and will always remember our interactions."
" I attended one of Guy's workshops recently and was very impressed with the teaching method, demeanour and professional studio setup. Guy’s decades of photography knowledge and experience continually shone through and it was also simply a lot of fun. In the end I went home with some images that we created and I learned a lot about lighting a subject in just one afternoon. In all aspects I enjoyed the experience and comfortable environment. I can highly recommend attending one of Guy’s workshops." Arwin van Vliet
"I loved working in a guided studio environment with Guy. After many years of teaching, he is fantastic at explaining while entertaining and not overloading beginner's with information. I truly appreciated how he sought out my point of view and creative input. He made me feel like my opinion was valued which in turn helped to feed my desire to learn. He is an extremely encouraging teacher. I find his balance of information and creativity to be perfect for me as a beginner. To push myself to learn more while remembering that I began this journey to have fun." Arielle Bateman
" I look back fondly on my days at Cardiagan Street, Guy and know that I wouldn't be the photographer, and in fact the person , that I am today without benefitting from your teachings, help, patience, friendship and kindness." Trent Perrett
"I attended a workshop with Guy in his studio to do a bit of educational shooting. I thought we were going to do some portraits however I was wrong (I'm sure he does that as well). I won't spoil the fun however guy produced some everyday objects and using a single light we proceeded to shoot tethered to Capture one, learning what subtle light, props and subject changes can lead to in an image. We took turns, refined and generally experimented until we took some pretty special images by the end of the session. I had been shooting as an amateur for a long time and had never done anything like this before. I learnt so much on the day and I came away thinking deeply about light and its effects. I at times wasn't aware that Guy was actually teaching us however upon reflection I realize he was just saying one or two critical words at the right time. His long teaching career and ability as a communicator just shone through. I can highly recommend Guy's Photo workshops." Gregory Leake
"I attended one of Guy’s workshops and I absolutely loved it! Apart from learning the technical stuff, Guy has a method of teaching that really empowered and encouraged each of the participants. Guy’s was at all times dedicated and passionate about what he was teaching and had some magic ability to push our creativity to the next level. I was very happy with the results and the support and motivation. I highly recommend to join any of his workshops." Fernando Maquedano
"I attended another of Guys workshops, this time it was black and white film developing. I had a medium format camera that I had never used, Guy went over it with me and we went out together and I took my first images with the camera while he shot a couple of 4x5 image on a Linhof large-format camera. We talked exposure and many other things about the craft. The point was to develop the roll of 120 film and the 4x5 sheet film we had just taken. I had done this 40 years ago for 35mm so I was very rusty. Guy patiently showed me how to load the film and I then did it myself. We then developed the film and I pretty much did my own developing as he subtly instructed me and set things up. We went through the whole process from shooting, developing, drying and scanning. I loved the day, learnt so much in a short period of time and have since purchased my own darkroom gear as Guy has given me the confidence to develop B&W 120/35mm film myself." Gregory Leake
