  • I joined Lesley’s VIVID Photography Retreat in 2019 and had an amazing time. It was extremely well-organized, and we were treated to a wide variety of photographic opportunities, both at VIVID and other iconic Sydney locations. I came home with some great images and memories. Would highly recommend!

  • “It was a really special Christmas gift from my family … an all-expenses paid weekend adventure trip with Lesley.

    I wasn’t feeling the boldest, and certainly wouldn’t have ventured off on a weekend excursion by myself – to a place I’d not heard of, with a group of people I’d never met before. My appetite for adventure has been curbed for health reasons and I was quite apprehensive.

    My worries and concerns melted away the minute I met Lesley Whyte and the group of women who would be weekend companions.  I couldn’t have been better looked after.

    Lesley runs a highly professional programme in the most warm and welcoming manner, and whilst efficiently organised, they still maintain the ability to be flexible with uncontrollable factors – like the weather – and make the most out of photographic opportunities as they present themselves. Lesley showed me how to get the best out of my camera, encouraging me to try different combinations and settings.  The results are great photos, confidence in my camera, confidence to tinker with enhancements in photo software, a wide angle view of opportunities and a zoom on trying different techniques.

    I most definitely hope to go on future get-away. I know I’ll be in good hands, no worries.”

  • “Everything was taken care of.  Didn’t have to think about anything it all just happened, including the weather for our photography.  Looked after amazingly from the minute we arrived till the minute we finished.  Three jam packed days with beautiful food, wine and the most fabulous company!!!  Can’t wait to do another one!  Thanks  Lisa
