I cannot speak highly enough of the incredible effort, professionalism & impeccable quality of work Simon shows to his clients. My story was a very sad one, I had gone to the vet with my beloved 10.5yo love of my life German Shepherd Georgie Girl thinking I was getting antibiotics for her as she wasn’t well. She was rushed into emergency surgery & found to be riddled with cancer & only days to live. To say I was in shock, devastated & overwhelmed with grief was an understatement.
I rang Simon as I wanted to have a last photo shoot with her before she died & time was of the essence. After finding out my situation, Simon, exhausted himself, rushed off a plane from interstate dealing with his own family tragedy, drove miles to my house to take Georgie & my last photo shoot together.
The day was a horrible, overcast day. Simon had to deal with a mum in utter despair, a very sick little Doggy who was trying her very best, and Simon dealing with the pressure of knowing Georgie was dying & this would be the last photo shoot she would ever have.
The photos that followed were absolute artistry in exceptionally difficult circumstances. The gift Simon gave me with shooting these exquisite photos means to me than words could ever express. His kindness shown to me during this excruciating time was immeasurable.
Words will never be able to thank you enough Simon. You are not just an artist with exceptional talent, but a very kind man with a beautiful soul which reflects in your work.
Thank you for my treasured memories of my Georgie Girl Simon ❤️
We spent the morning with Simon at his studio with my bouncy 20 month old GSD, Gordon. Simon did a brilliant job in getting some amazing shots of Gordon. An experience I highly recommend and we will definitely do an update shoot when Gordon gets a brother or sister down the track! Thanks! ❤️
Took up an amazing opportunity to participate in the book German Shepherds of Australia and raise money for German Shepherd Rescue Victoria. From the model interview right through to the photo shoot Simon and his team were a pleasure to work with, both Kaden and I had lots of fun during the photo shoot. The photos are absolutely stunning and I am looking forward to seeing the finished product of the book. Thank You ❤️
