“Working at The Photography Studio in Sydney was a dream come true. They are true professionals from start to finish. Once I saw how much I could learn and the responsibilities they placed in me I asked to increase my hours and actually changed my flight so I could stay another month and a half. I got to work with award winning photographers and assisted on all aspects of their work.”

“I was the second Down Under Tom to work with them so they called me Texas Tom. These guys are really a fun group to work with. This is not just their job but their passion. I had a chance to help set up the studio when companies booked the space to film commercials. Also, I learned about all the latest equipment to check in and out to their clients. These guys work with some of the top film crews in the world so being around that really inspired me.“
