Wedding Photographers – Great Team

JA and Ray are a great team. Their preparation was very professional, including a pre-wedding shoot so that we learned how to relax in front of the cameras. Their work-rate on the wedding day itself was phenomenal – they made the most of some great light at sunset – to produce literally hundreds of great images. And their presentation of the results was timely and immaculate, including a slide show set to one of our favourite pieces of music, which our friends and family loved to receive. We would highly recommend JA and Ray as a wedding photography team.

Nelson Bay – Workshop Feb 2019

Last weekend I went on the Fundamentals Workshop in Nelson Bay.

This was my first tour with John and Ray and I had been warned it would be a great photographic experience with a lot of laughs thrown in – that couldn’t have been more correct!
We went to superb locations for sunsets and sunrises and both John and Ray were on hand to help one on one with any problems any of us were having and to give wise advice on composition etc. The video and tutorial parts were very insightful and full of key information to help take our skills to the next level.
I must mention the delicious food choices too as John is obviously a foodie and knows how to pick a good restaurant!
Thanks guys, it really was an inspiring weekend and excellent value for money and I think I packed more laughter into those few days than I have in a while!
I highly recommend your tours to anyone interested in photographing beautiful landscapes and meeting new friends. Watch out – I will be back!

Thanks Jill

Nelson Bay – Fundamentals Course (3 Day Workshop Tour)

“ I have just finished my second tour with John and Ray and already have two more booked. 
Their tours are professional yet relaxed and flexible catering for the conditions and needs of the participants. 
Ray is such a natural teacher with so much knowledge to share if you’re ready to learn. John is always there to impart his knowledge and endless patience, and maybe some politically incorrect humour as a bonus. 
I thoroughly recommend any tour that these guys put on offer – guaranteed plenty of great phototographic opportunities, learning and laughs, memories, great value for your money and lest not forget the best food as John knows where to eat wherever you go. 
Never underestimate the value of going on a tour to an area where you are guided to locations that you would struggle to access by yourself or the friendships that you can create by putting yourself out there just a little “
Thankyou again – Sam Wilson 

Tin City Workshop with John & Ray

I recently attended a great Tin City workshop and Ray and John were very flexible in adding in extra options for light painting and a split group for a different dune shooting experience. More importantly was John’s network to help out a driver in distress when the NRMA couldn’t! 🙂
Many thanks.

Wedding Shoot – John & Ray from “John Armytage Photography”

John and Ray from “John Armytage Photography” photographed our wedding day in Katoomba this year, and we are so happy with the results. Experienced, professional, organized and fun is how I would describe these gents. They recorded our special day with zero fuss, delivering our images quickly and with great value. Thank you again so very much.
Rebecca and Colin Bates.

I recently attended the Narooma Trip

I recently attended the Narooma workshop with John and Ray and although I have known John and Ray personally for a number of years I was pleasantly surprised how well they work together,
The workshop was well organized full of content, plenty of laughs and most enjoyable.
John and Ray have a unique teaching style which is suited from a beginner to an advanced photographer like myself.
Very highly recommended.

I had high expectations of the Narooma Trip

I had high expectations of the 4 Day Narooma trip, as I was familiar with the excellent images from Ray and John. But the trip exceeded my expectations. It was non-stop photography and discussion from before dawn to late at night. They went out of their way to discover what each participant wanted to learn, and worked hard to deliver that. I got far more quality shooting than I could have achieved on my own, thanks to their location knowledge and planning. Highly recommended.

Fundamentals Workshop – Nelson Bay Weekend

A great weekend away with John & Ray on their Fundamentals workshop.

The workshop provided a good variety of material and the location shoots provided the opportunity to test what we had learnt as well as being great fun.

Can’t wait for my next workshop with them.

Fundamentals Workshop – Nelson Bay

I recently attended a photography weekend away in Nelson Bay with John & Ray and couldn’t recommend them more highly. They are both incredibly knowledgeable and patient, answering questions and providing on location guidance to ensure that you get the best out of the trip regardless of your level of photography knowlege. Their passion for their craft is infectious and the planning and effort that went on behind the scenes was evident across the whole weekend.

Do yourself a favour and get along to one of their courses!

I attended the Beginners Workshop

I attended the Beginners Workshop at Nelson Bay with John and Ray March 2018. It was a fantastic 3days full of learning and fun – and more importantly there were ‘no silly questions’. After looking at videos, reading and attending other workshops I still could not get the hang of shooting in ‘manual’, but Ray and John explained it in an easy to understand manner, and I attach my first shot using the manual setting – thank you so much John and Ray!

Fundamentals Workshop – Nelson Bay

I recently attended a weekend Fundamentals Workshop in Nelson Bay, led my John Armytage & Ray Jennings. John & Ray were both so generous in sharing their extensive knowledge of photography & photo editing so I came away greatly inspired & enlightened.

Thankyou so much Anne Powell

Fundamentals Workshop Nelson Bay

I recently attended a 3 Day Fundamentals Workshop with John and Ray . Without a doubt I learned more in that 3 Days than Years of endless searching on Youtube and trying to figure it all out on my own . John and Ray are both likeable Characters with an easygoing Teaching style but don’t be fooled they are both absolute Pro’s with a love of Photography and a willingness to pass on their knowledge.
The Class size was ideal with 8 Students so on the Shoots both John and Ray were overseeing only 4 people each . Very personalised tuition . We all had a great time . I would recommend any Course or Workshop run by this very Professional Team. 

Thankyou Kevin Rowley

John – MC Event

I have had the pleasure of recently attending a couple of events where John Armytage was MC. I found him to be very professional and very well presented. John has a great personality and can also add clean, relevant comedy to an event. He is very versatile and can adapt his style to present in a formal way, or in a funny way to suit different events, which is a great skill. I would recommend John him as MC for any event – large or small, formal or informal.

“Beautiful xx loved working with you guys”

Julie N – April 2017

Family Portrait Session

“We as a family are so happy that we chose John as our photographer for family photos. Not only are we overjoyed with the photos, but just as importantly the way in which he went about his work on the day was awesome. So many family members commented on what a great job he had done and we couldn’t agree more – friendly, and unobtrusive yet very efficient, getting all the more formal shots we wanted as well as so many great informal ‘natural’ shots of our family. He also worked tirelessly to get the photos to us within days, knowing that we were family were heading back to QLD soon after the photo shoot. I would highly recommend John and his team at John Armytage Photography to anyone!! Thankyou.”
