In February this year we embarked on a 2 week photographic trip to India with Peter Haarhoff as our photo coach. We spent 9 days in Varanasi and 5 days in Delhi. Peter planned a daily itinerary, based on what we wanted to photograph and further photographic activities that he researched. The trip was a wonderful success and we returned home with superb photos and very happy memories. Peter was a truly amazing photo coach, not only photographically, but also as a travel companion for my husband and I. His ability to blend and mingle with the locals as well as other travellers was brilliant and his sense of humour kept us and the locals entertained. Peter's extremely hard working and responsible attitude towards his job, made each day exciting and assured that we achieved our goals set out. His creative mind and willingness to always assist and give of his knowledge added enormously to the success of our photographic outcome. We would highly recommend Peter as a photo coach and look forward to planning another great adventure with him in the future. Karyn & Dante

I spent the final days of my Africa adventure in Cape Town, my first time there. My travel companions were attending a conference, so I was on my own. At the recommendation of a friend, I contacted Cape Photographic Company to show me the area so I could make the most of my three days. Peter was an amazing guide, taking me to some of the quintessential must-see places but also off the beaten path. From the city center and outlying townships down to Cape Point to wine country and many sites in between, we covered so much ground. I appreciated his knowledge of the region and came away feeling like I connected with the people and places. The big surprise is how much I enjoyed learning about photography! I’m not a great photographer, so I thought I would be out if my league. Not at all. Peter meets you where you are, introducing the basics and building on what I was learning. I highly recommend Cape Photographic Company for individuals and small groups who want a personal, customized experience in Cape Town and beyond. The photographic experience is an added bonus!

Myself and my 2 sisters, all retired now, went on our "trip of a lifetime" to South Africa, which concluded in Cape Town. We could not have had a better finish to a thrilling trip, thanks to Cliff Rossenrode. I think we saw and experienced more things in 2 days there than most see in a week. In addition to hitting all the tourist highlights, Cliff has such a good eye for wildlife. We never would have spotted the zebras at Cape Point Park without his sharp eye, nor seen the Eland, baby ostrich, countless birds and the bontebok. He also has encyclopedic knowledge of the wildflowers there as well. Most of all, Cliff has such enthusiasm, which is infectious. He was patient and kind with us 3 "old ladies", too, which is not always easy! We really got lucky having Cliff as our guide, and Cape Town is lucky to have Cliff as their ambassador. I can't wait to return to Cape Town! If you go, be sure to bring binoculars - you won't want to miss the exciting wildlife at Cape Point.

Like other reviewers I too try and find a local photographer and do a tour / workshop when I visit a new country. And so my web searches led me to Peter and Cape Photographic Company. In advance I advised that my partner was celiac and a non photographer. Nothing was a problem , we had a fantastic day , shooting images , testing wine and seeing the Area. Peter is one of the best workshop photographers I’ve ever worked with and if you are in the area he is well worth a call . Superb value for money and really informative teaching .
