HANDS DOWN ONE OF TH MOST AMAZING YEARS OF MY LIFE!
It was such a warm and lovely environment, I made friends for a lifetime this year. I.ve learnt so much. The laughs and fun were endless. I loved the fact that you are taken and accepted the way you come ‘vibe that was given off by everyone this year.
I huge shout out to my teacher and mentor, Tristyn, for believing in me and teaching me all I know. For catching my tears when I thought I couldn.t do it.
A massive thank you to Clarissa for pushing my boundaries. Making me believe that it’s okay to try and fail – you learn from your mistakes. For staying later with me and giving me amazing photos.
There will never be enough thank you’s to express how thankful I am to the both of you. Even though I had no idea what I was doing most of the time, you still supported me. The constructive criticism and tips have helped me way more than you know. I love you both.
Thank you Paula for always making me feel like I will always have a place at Getpix. For always motivating and admiring my work. For always being soft with me and taking amazing photos fir me. And thank you for sweet talking my mother into letting me go here.
I thoroughly enjoyed my 2018. And I’m glad I could a form of entertainment sometimes. I am grateful for everyone who made my experience at Getpix a memorable one.
Love
Bee
I will def be back to visit.

THANK YOU FOR THE YEAR!
My year at Getpix was amazing. I learnt so much and gained so much.
The environment was always exciting, creative and upbeat. I know I will always be where I am because of Getpix. Have fun for the years ahead.

Charne Swart (Full Time Photography)

Dear Paula and Clarissa
Photography isn’t a hobby it’s passion for doing something you love and to show the world the things they don’t see every day.
This was a career I always wanted to do and to make it happen it’s like a dream come true with a little bit of love, care and support from Getpix
Thank you so much for always helping out and being there for us and helping us to improve our work and always giving our best.
Getpix is the place where ‘ve learned to be out of my comfort zone and to clash with friends that left a mark in my heart.
This is the place – it felt like a second home. To stay late in the evenings to play uno or monopoly or just fun Friday playing with water balloons. This is where u don’t need to be perfect just being yourself and everyone will still love you .
To friends that will last forever and Instructors that will help out and give us a push into the future.
You all will be missed
Will visit soon x

Mrs Bev Proctor-Golding (Full Time Photography – Parent)

Hi Paula
It has been a pleasure dealing with Getpix this year, the content of the course and related tasks stretched Sam in many aspects, and has definitely equipped her to take on new opportunities that have come her way.
Thank-you for pushing her the way you did and constantly exposing her to the various photo shoot opportunities, there is no doubt that the whole experience has been life changing for her, building her confidence and knowledge to now pursue a career that she is very passionate about.

Mel (Full Time Makeup Artistry – Parent)

Hello Paula,
You have managed to cover a wide field, within a relatively short period of time. With Monica’s endurance in mind, it has worked for us. I have seen it takes a lot to keep a small educational institution going, from many perspectives and not least interpersonally. I realize that the margins on the fees you charge are not excessive given the level of attention to individuals, and as such I regard it as decent value for money. Thanks again for the effort from your team’s side.

Neo Maifo (Full Time Graphic Design – Parent)

GETPIX was amazing and surprised me at the same time, We hope the college will produce more students for the better future, because education is a key to success.
