Just a note to say thank you to yourself, Peter and all the staff at National Photography.

 Over the many years that we have been dealing with National everyone has always been extremely professional and accommodating of our requirements.  There are many events during a school year Deb Balls, Award Ceremonies, Graduations etc. all of these have been captured by your staff and we could not be happier with the results.  Nothing is every too much trouble. The quality of the photos that you provide to our parents is fantastic, they love the presentation of them and in fact we have many who contact us to find out exact delivery dates etc. as they want to use the photos for gifts for Grandparents etc.  

 One event that our Year 12 students always look forward to is the Year 12 Group Photo Day - organising 220+ students in 40 minutes for one photo is not an easy task but your staff have always achieved the impossible - 220+ smiling students arranged in ways that amazes me every year.  Thank you it is a great memento of their 13 years of school.

 Your suggestion a couple of years ago of incorporating a flat fee into our school fees for photos was such a fantastic idea and all our parents are delighted that this in place.  Not only does this ensure that every student can receive their photos (no matter what their family financial situation at the time) but it really helps our staff not having to collect the money from the students and it frees them up at the busy start of the year to do what they are employed to do - teach the students.

 The recent decision by our Parents and Friends Association to book National as our Debutante Ball Photographer is another testament to how highly parents regard the product you provide.  Having used a local company for more than 25 years, it was a big decision for the Association to make, however they all agreed the quality of your work, the affordability and your professional staff made the decision easier for them.

 Please pass on our thanks to everyone at National Photography and we look forward to working with you for many years to come.

 Thank you again and if you every need to refer a prospective client to me for clarification of anything please do not hesitate to do so.
