On the 27th Sep 2015, I participated in a test shoot with Paul of Zone 1 Photography and his son who was the assistant for the day. Paul was great with communication and giving directions for posing for the camera and he always made sure he was doing right by me. He made the photo-shoot fun and enjoyable and made me feel a little less nervous. He gave me a private area and time to change from garment to garment, to make me feel comfortable. The day was really nice after the rain had stopped and we started the shoot. Paul knew exactly what he was doing and waited for the right moment. I thoroughly enjoyed the shoot and I ended up with some very professional photos to use as my portfolio. I would highly recommend Paul Christou of Zone 1 Photography to anyone who is serious about a professional photo-shoot.

Thank you Paul for making me feel comfortable and very special and also for the lovely photos. J

 

Dear Paul

Thank you for the marvelous photographs that you took for my 60th birthday. My son was 35 on the same day. I wanted a photo album as a future momento of our double celebration, one that I could look back on in years to come and enjoy all the family in it, (23 people to be exact). “You delivered”!!

What beautiful photos!! I am so happy! I will call you back for my children and grandchildren’s special days to record their special memories

Thank you again

I would just like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude towards Paul and his assistant Noni. I used Zone 1 Photography to promote my business as a private escort and since posting the photos on my website, I’ve been inundated with work.

We did 3 location shoots over 3 days and Paul and Noni made the experience very enjoyable for me. I haven’t done anything like this before so I had no idea how to pose but Paul was fantastic at directing me so I got a lesson in modelling at the same time. I quickly found what angles I looked good in and the ones that did me no justice at all.  Both Noni and Paul paid special attention to detail so there was never anything unsightly in the background or bikini strap twisted. I found them to be very professional, courteous, patient, understanding, reliable, accommodating and flexible. All very important attributes to have in this industry especially when dealing with complicated ocd people like myself.:)I highly recommend for anyone wishing to do glamour photography on location to contact Paul. You will not be disappointed and the turn around time to get your edited photos back was very fast.

I recently completed a six-week beginners course in Camera Craft with Zone1Photography tutored by Paul Christou who I found to be most helpful, patient and entertaining!  Over the six-week period I learnt a great deal, both theoretically and practically, gained more confidence with camera handling and photographic techniques and I am now ready to move on to a higher level of learning and practice.I would recommend Zone 1 Photographic courses to anyone interested in learning more about photography.

I had a swimwear photo-shoot with Paul in the month of September 2007. As it was only Paul and myself present at the photo-shoot, I found him to be very professional in his work and comfortable to be around. I was extremely happy with the end results, I have some very nice photographs for my portfolio. I would happily recommend Paul Christou to anyone wanting beautiful photographs.

I recently completed a six-week course with Zone 1 Photography taught by Paul Christou. I found the course most helpful. It covered camera equipment, studio lighting, night shoots and camera techniques and was suitable for beginners and people who wish to further their knowledge. Thank you Paul, who I found explained any queries I had and was most pleasant to talk to. I have enjoyed the course and hope to continue to develop my career in photography.

Dear Paul,

I am writing to thank you so much for the awesome job on my photo-shoot. “WOW” you are Amazing! I certainly didn’t expect to have such a picture perfect result like that! With thanks to you Paul, I had an absolutely awesome day. The fact that you are so professional yet you made me feel so confident and very comfortable in all settings and positions even when there were few pieces of clothing still intact.

I have had so many comments on my pictures and I have been able to utilize the many of the images, not only on my business cards, but on my Face Book profile as well. I sent my pictures to my casting agent and have been asked to try out for a major movie because of the awesome shots you took of me. I just love the fantastic creative job you did Paul and I look forward to working with you on further shoots. I would certainly recommend you to anyone for a professional job!

Thanks again.
Love Ingalisa VanDenBreok.

 

I had always wondered what it would be like to do a photo-shoot for a magazine or to be on someone’s website or just a shoot in general. So much fun to get hair and make-up done and be center of attention at least for an hour. But knowing I don’t have what it takes to be a model, it was still always a nice thought.

I met Paul through “Latin Dancing” classes who approached me and asked me if he could photograph me,…. I was absolutely shocked and stocked at the same time! YES! Was my answer.

When he asked me if I’d do swimwear for him I really wasn’t sure I could do something like that, I didn’t have the confidence and it was a little overwhelming for a first shoot ever…..But that’s where Paul came in, he was my confidence and made me feel like I could do anything. He had such a professional yet friendly approach that I felt so comfortable around him at all times. During the shoot, the hair and make-up artist was there for the whole thing to make sure that I’m always looking at my best.

My whole experience with the shoot was amazing & FUN! I loved the work Paul did with my photos & I’d recommend him to anybody!

Thank you Paul!!!

Paul approached me while I was at work and offered me a photo-shoot (my choice of style) at a time that suited me. I am so happy that I accepted the offer. Paul works in a professional manner and made me feel like a REAL MODEL. He is the loveliest person to work with and has a genuine concern for all of the models. The images I received a few days later were unbelievable! I can’t wait to do another shoot with Paul.  I recommend Paul to anyone who wants beautiful images. You will NOT be disappointed!

Your Sincerely,
Jennifer Crust

 

I want to say to any person that is thinking of getting Paul of Zone 1 Photography to do a photo-shoot for them that; You don’t have to be an experienced model because with Paul and his team you will feel so comfortable and so beautiful. They know how to bring the best out of you.

I can say this because that is how I felt. We did a whole day of photography at my house and had a lot of fun, first was professional make-up artist and did my hair and make-up and then Noni and Paul did the rest. We didn’t finish till the evening. I had so much fun and felt the day was not long enough. Now just want to say thanks to Paul and Noni of Zone 1 Photography

Love J.M. Romero

I would like to express my thanks to Zone 1 for their professional approach to me when I was asked to do a model shoot.

 

I have found Paul to be very easy to work with and I enjoyed every moment of the shoot with him at a beautiful location. Not only did I enjoy myself all day, Paul made me feel like a real model (Princess). We had heaps of fun but got down to business in such an easy way that I had no idea I was actually modeling. And the end result was nothing short of stunning photographic work shot on location.

 

I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Paul as the photographer (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) for model shoots. The best thing about it all, you don’t have to be a model – Paul will make you look and feel like a model – Like Paul says, “It’s your Perfect Day, Make It Your Perfect Choice – Zone 1 Photography” – I couldn’t agree more. Many thanks Paul for all the wonderful photos you took of me.
