Check out what our lovely clients have to say about us:

“On behalf of every parent and staff at St. Columba Uniting Church Pre-school, we would like to say a big thank you.

From the first booking call, to the wonderful happy photographer – Louise who worked really well and engaged the children in an inviting and fun way and was at all times respectful to the child. She demonstrated excellent knowledge of her work.”

Cheryl & Elen, St Columba Uniting Church Pre-school

“Parents expressed great delight. They were excited to see the new addition of the photo booth page and the children enjoyed sharing these with their families. Amber was very professional and offered great strategies for children who were shy. Nothing seemed a hassle and she was a delight to work with. The Fotek photo packages are very professional. I love that you are always committed to continuously improving and coming up with new ideas and photo options.”

Pied Piper Kindergarten Blair Athol

“Recently photographers from Fotek travelled to our pre-school to photograph our children. We have just received our photos and would like to express our thanks to the photographers. The day was long and busy but your staff worked tirelessly to provide our families with lovely photos. Thank you for the service provided.”

Sarah Clifton (Pre-school Management Committee), Grenfell Pre-school & Long Day Care Centre

“Fotek have been taking the annual pre-school photographs at our pre-school for many years now. Every year these photos come back bright, colourful, clear and having captured our little children with delightfully happy faces making a very beautiful memento for our families. On behalf of the management committee, staff and families of our pre-school, I wanted to write a note to say thank you for such consistently wonderful photographs. The presentation, variety and above all the quality of these images captivates everyone who views them and is a credit to the care and professionalism of your photographers and your company.”

Vicki Strudwick (President Management Committee), Springwood & District Pre-school

“Once again they were very well received by our parents and we are booked in again for this year. Thanks for all of your efforts to make our photo day a success.”

Julie Swavley, Treetops Pre-school

“Thank you again for the lovely photos. As in previous years we are very impressed with so many things with Fotek being our pre-school photographers.

Over the years we have tried a few different photo companies.

We have returned to Fotek for the last 2 years and again in 2 weeks’ time for the following reasons.

1. I am yet to see a photo of any child that I don’t like or you would say isn’t a good one.

2. The photographers are professional, respectful of the children and the staff. They do their thing efficiently and pleasantly.

3. The photographers pay attention to detail/colours/background with the photo set up and making sure the children’s hair, nose and clothes etc look their best.

4. All group and individual photos are over and done with usually by 10.30/11am for 2 mornings during a week in March.

5. The photo packs are ready by the end of the following week to distribute to families.

6. The families are under no obligation to buy any of the photos.

7. A Fotek representative will drop in each week till all the money is collected or photos returned.

8. The centre gets a copy of all the photos on CD and 2 small photos of each child which we use to make presents for families, eg. Mother’s Day

9. Minooka receives a cheque each year for a percentage of the sales, though I’m not sure what this figure is. (This is not our main motivation)

10. Any of the Fotek staff are extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. Any issues are resolved swiftly and without fuss.

I’m pleased to say that 2015 is no exception to the above points and as soon as we can we would like to book for the same week in 2016!!!”

Deborah Askew, Minooka Pre-school

“Thank you so much for my beautiful photo. The photographer squeezed us in when we didn’t have a booking and they have taken the first portrait pictures of our sons. Nothing extraordinary until I tell you that our eldest is autistic and taking pictures of him has always been very difficult. I now have a framed picture on my wall of my sons sitting together just like all my friends. It sounds like a small thing but it means the world to me.”

Heidi Bubb, Rainbow Child Care Centre

“I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the absolutely beautiful photographs you took of my daughter at Cronulla Pre-school. I was thrilled when I saw your beautifully presented work and had absolutely no hesitation in purchasing the entire package. You obviously love what you do. The care you showed in setting up a lovely scene for both the individual and class groups was a credit to you. The photographer who took our previous photos was an amateur compared to you. I am so glad the pre-school obtained your high quality service.”

Terri Brown

“I would just like to thank you for my beautiful album you made for my daughter from Helensburgh Community Pre-school. The photos are beautiful and the presentation was awesome (and yes I brought the lot).”

Val Churchill

“I would like to express my sincere thanks for the wonderful photos you took of my son last month when you came to Mary Bailey House. The presentation of photos is absolutely fabulous. The album folder is sensational. It is obvious you have spent considerable time capturing my child and the quality and colour is absolutely superior. Your package is worth every cent. Thank you for your highly professional job, I would thoroughly recommend your company.”

Bridget Martin

“My grandsons had their photos taken at Angels Pre-school last week and received them this morning. I am a grandmother of 16 and mother of 6 and have had many, many school photos over the years but never any so beautiful as these. Alexander and Nicholas have had many photos taken but none ever as beautiful as these.”

Congratulations on a great job!

Leonie Patterson

 “Love all our photos with Fotek, Fotek have done our pre-school photos each year for 5 years straight 2012-2016 providing top quality prints, a variety of different fun shots and poses. My one year old was scared of the camera one year and I stayed to watch his photo shoot and they were so very patient and skilled at what they do that still managed to capture perfect photos amongst my son’s stubbornness to not crack a smile. The fantastic thing I love about Fotek is that we view before we buy and every year out of the 5 years I bought the entire package because they have always been so amazing!

In the most recent year, 2017, a competing photographer approached the pre-school and persuaded the director to switch photo companies (Childcare told me the switch was due to $) and the competing photo company provided terrible photos and a terrible experience with no value for money.

The comparison to what we are familiar with from Fotek really stood out and I must say Fotek product and service came out best. Well worth my money spent with Fotek. I have been spoilt with choice and amazing photos from Fotek. It saddens me as a parent that the childcare centre switched from using you guys. I know of other parents too that miss your photos.

To anybody considering using Fotek, I highly recommend them!”
