Claire is apro-level photographer who knows how to bring out the best in people. I haveextensive experience with photography myself and wondered if there was muchthat Claire could teach me. She asked about my work, about my knowledge leveland tailored a morning session that taught me a lot about creating a compellingimage series, and telling a themed story through multiple images. I alsolearned how to hone my photograohic vision by sketching too. She also gave me alot of very useful information about how to tackle my own ongoing project backhome. Claire is a lovely, approachable lady who knows her way around both acamera and the national park at Noosa where our session took place. I trulyappreciated the wild beauty of the surroundings and came to notice the gorgeoussmall and large details which she pointed out. The midpoint in the session wasgreat fun; splashing around in the waters of Alexander Bay. Yay!! So bring yourcamera (and water and sunscreen) and look forward to learning no matter whatyour skill level with a camera. I'd highly recommend Claire's experience toanyone

Wehad a wonderful session with Claire. The photography tips and techniques wewent through were the perfect level for us (not quite beginners but not expertseither). The bush walk was beautiful and the mid-session swim fit so well withthe relaxed vibe of the day. We took some beautiful pictures of the Noosahinterland and also gained some knowledge about the local flora and faunathrough Claire. This is definitely an experience we would go to again and wouldhighly
