Kind words from our Clients…

“I am completely blown away with your shot and the attention to detail as well as going the extra mile with the addition of text to the postcard, you weren’t wrong when you said you were a perfectionist, Melody! Seeing your pic certainly got me more excited about my business and the potential and impact a photo has!      

They look fantastic – thank you so much!!  Absolutely love the look of all the shots and the handwritten postcard details, the beanie on the mannequin head and the colours of the packaging you’ve selected for each shot!  I was curious to see how you were going to display the ABs hampers which were very tricky indeed, having tried myself.  You’ve done an amazing job!  Thank you Melody and John!  One happy customer :-)”

“Four years ago we asked Melody and John to redesign our web site. Having successfully executed this, they are now producing all our product shots, stock photography, print advertising and resource materials. Working with them is just so easy. We know we can always trust them to work to the brief and to produce work of the highest quality, often at very short notice. Their ability to recognise exactly what we want, pick the right mood and pull all the elements together, as well as delivering prompt and friendly service, makes them an invaluable part of the Wither Hills team.

We have been especially happy with our stock photography library and were impressed at just how convenient, versatile and economical having all our shots taken in digital has been – and with absolutely no compromise on quality. We’ve had images printed as large as a metre high with stunning results. Their expertise in digital editing and ‘tweaking’ our images also allows us the flexibility to include or remove elements as needed without obstacle and to use them in a whole variety of different contexts.

On location, Wayfarer makes our team feel relaxed and at ease in front of the camera, striking a perfect balance between informality and professionalism.

Melody and John have worked to our brief and beyond. As fast as the Wither Hills brand has been growing, they have met the demands – a true happy partnership of success. Keep it up…

“John and Melody have been our design and photography team for more than four years now. Over this period we have come to know them to be people of the highest personal and professional integrity. Their partnership brings together a range of talents, skills and creative passion that have been invaluable to us. Their understanding of human nature and useability has enabled us to create an industry tool in Wine Trade Online that is unique and unrivalled. Without their creative vision, whole-hearted encouragement and old-fashioned hard work, Wine Trade Online simply would not exist.

They have always encouraged us to push the boundaries of quality in our work and have done so by example, delivering commercial art, design work, photography and marketing advice of impeccable standards, on every occasion.

In our business, we want to work with people we can trust to deliver the highest quality and value on time, for ourselves and for our clients. We have certainly found this in Wayfarer and we recommend their services without reservation.”
