… beyond our expectations.

I am delighted to endorse Alison Laverty and her husband Damian. They work well as a team, each with specialist skills in the production of photo memories. We found Alison after a number of disappointing conversations with others in her trade, who were so inflexible in their offering. Alison was the complete opposite. She and Damian welcomed us into the privacy of their homely office and proceeded to turn around a masterpiece in a short few days, working through the night to meet a tight deadline. This was to become a key part of the celebration at the funeral of our father. Others were adamant it could only be a set length, and chose not to listen to our wishes. Alison and Damian not only listened but they empathised and delivered an 8 minute slideshow tribute, complete with musical backing. We worked together on the selection of photos and music, while they pulled it all together in a way that was beyond our expectations. The tribute is now a keepsake accessible both privately through the internet and on DVD that our family and friends continue to enjoy. I have since retained Alison to create another tribute slideshow, that has had similar plaudits. While smart phones and other technologies offer some solutions these days, I believe Alison and Damian provide a professional service that adds value well beyond the cost.

… patience, creativity and professionalism

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for putting the videos together and accommodating the rounds of changes – they were very well received at the party and hit the right note evoking nostalgic memories and celebrating my granny’s life. A beautiful tribute.

It’s been a pleasure working with you on this – thank you for your patience, creativity and professionalism.

… thrilled with the service

I found Alison from Photoshow on DVD after searching the internet looking for someone to put a video together for my daughter’s special birthday. This was about 5 years ago. I had left it late but Alison assured me she would put something together that I would be happy with. I sent her about 20 videos and lots of photos. They were in no particular order and I had my doubts that she could do anything great with it. Imagine my surprise when about a week later she put it all together with my daughters favourite songs in the most fantastic fun way. I was thrilled with the end result and thrilled with the service. Alison could not have done a better job!! Two and a half years later she did the same for my younger daughter and the video was honestly the highlight of the occasion so thanks Alison I could not recommend your services highly enough!!

… fast, efficient and professional

If you have video that’s been sitting around clogging up your hard drive and you know that ll it needs is a little bit of tweaking, editing and highlights, you have to contact Alison at Photoshow on DVD. Alison is fast, efficient and professional. I do not have any experience in video editing so when I’ve asked Alison for what I’ve wanted, she not only understood (you can imagine I didn’t explain it in her tech language) she also delivered. I’ve been able to fast tract so many videos since working with Alison that she’s save me a massive amount of time and money. I have no hesitation in recommending Alison and her team.

… creative and caring person

“I first approached Alison 3 years ago after reading her ad in the local paper. I wanted to put together a DVD of my parents life together from many old photos up to when my dad passed away in 2008. I can’t tell you what a fantastic job Alison did because the finished product was way beyond any expectations I could have had. Since then Alison has done a number of DVDs for me, both professional and family photos, as well as a restoration of our wedding from VHS to DVD.

Alison is a very creative and caring person and seems to know what you would like and put it all to music as well. I would not hesitate to recommend Alison at Photoshow on DVD to anyone. Congratulations Alison for your 5 year Anniversary for Photoshow on DVD. I know there will be many more.”

…most irreplaceable, touching, heartfelt DVD

“Alison and Damian / Photoshow on DVD – created for us the most irreplaceable, touching, heartfelt DVD‘s for us compiling songs and photos of our 2nd born Daughter – Maya’s short life.

They put their hearts and souls into creating this so very lovingly for us. Total strangers – yet are now special parts of our “family”. They contacted us and let us view proof’s of the slideshow before finalizing it.

Words will never ever be able to describe our gratitude towards them. Prior to them making this for us they had transferred our wedding cassette’s onto DVD’s also. All transactions are so no fuss and just a pleasure to deal with them and costs were more than reasonable.

Thank you Alison and Damian from the bottom of our hearts.”

Rob and Tess Taylor, Kingaroy

…excellent job

My associates and I have been using the expertise of Alison and Damian Laverty from Photoshow on a film project.

We had previously tried two other editors who were recommended by people in the film industry. These operators are extremely professional but tented to follow their own thoughts as opposed to instruction when decisions were made in editing.

Alison and Damian followed our instructions to the letter and do an excellent job. Personally I appreciate the fact that Damian puts extras of his own time into the project to make it more professional.

I whole heartedly recommend Alison and Damian to anyone who is considering using Photoshow as I am confident that they will be as pleased with their work as we are.

Sincerely

Michael J Fraser, Macleay Island

… brought much joy to an elderly couple in their mid eighties

“I was very impressed with your personalized and friendly service at our first meeting when I presented you with a bundle of video tapes to be transferred to DVD. These were delivered promptly and were very reasonably priced for a high quality project.

Especially impressive was your work on an old and dilapidated LP that was destined for the tip but thanks to your efforts you managed to save a portion of it. As a result, you brought much joy to an elderly couple in their mid eighties who played their CD for anyone who visited.

Thank you so very much. I will certainly be using your services on a regular basis.”

…I felt like they were doing this for their own son

“We were recommended Photoshow on DVD after asking around when we needed to transfer all our old family videos onto DVD’s.

I was impressed immediately just by making our enquiry. It was so easy when speaking with Alison Laverty. When arriving for the appointment, Alison and Damian made me extremely welcome and relaxed. Many, many visits followed and each time was no exception.

At first my aim was to organise all our videos to be transferred so as to preserve them. It is not easy leaving all your precious memories with someone, but I totally trusted them and felt reassured they were being well looked after and kept safe. Then as time went on, I was so impressed by their professionalism and attention to detail, our family asked Alison and Damian to put together a video presentation for our son’s 21st. This was a total labour of love and I felt like they were doing this for their own son, such was the time and care put into this spectacular presentation.

We are still having DVD presentations done by Alison and Damian – old family slides onto a Power Point with music, the 21st party itself, and now a holiday. This is on top of having all our family memories safely on DVDs, which are all titled and dated, easy to access and compact and sturdy to last for years. This is priceless for our family.

We would recommend Photoshow on DVD to anyone and we feel very fortunate to have come across such a sincere, helpful, professional and personalised family company.”

…absolutely delighted with the results

“My parents have just moved to a retirement home and I came across the slides that my Mum took between the 50s and 70s. We have looked at them so rarely – so I decided to have them put on DVD. I saw Alison’s ad in the Coffee Club News and decided to trust her with these precious memories. I have been absolutely delighted with the results. She took extra time to fix the colour and they are so bright and clear. I am using them as my screensaver at present, and having multiple flashbacks! Thanks, Alison!”

…valuable advise, suggestions and work towards providing quality results, excellent services

“My family annually seeks alternative gifts for my birthday. Last year they decided to find a company able to preserve and save many memorable childhood slides, but what company could do this? Investigation, via internet searching, my daughter discovered Photoshow. The discovery of Photoshow has indeed been a magical find!

The owners Alison and Damian, are indeed professionals in every aspect of their business. No matter what challenge is given to Alison and Damian they give valuable advise, suggestions and work towards providing quality results. Slides almost unrecognisable have been cleaned, restored, enhanced and to my selected music placed on a compact disc (CD). Two 8mm cine films that had not been viewed for thirty years are now beautifully presented on a CD and enjoyed by our family and friends.

I have no hesitation in recommending, rather urging you to preserve your history and utilise the excellent services that Photoshow, Alison and Damian, are able to provide.”

…thrilled with the finished product

“Photoshow on DVD did a great job on my husband’s DVD for his 40th birthday. The whole family was thrilled with the finished product!! They put the whole show together for me and even did a second copy on wide screen when we got our new TV. The hardest part was picking the music to go with each photoshow. It really made a wonderful present for his birthday and it is something that we will treasure forever. His birthday has now come and gone, but the kids love getting the DVD out and watching it over and over. Thanks so much Alison and Damian.”

…priceless service for families wishing to preserve their memories

“Alison and Damian captured 20 hours of footage I had shot in the mid 90s on Video8 formatted tapes. It was wonderful to get the digital files from them and then spend hours reviewing them with friends and family, reliving many memories from the past. I am so happy with their service. Damian went through all the tapes, captured and cleaned the footage too a much better quality than I was expecting. They also offered the most cost effective solution out of everyone I had considered. Unexpectedly, in amongst the footage was video clips of my father who has since died, so I am very grateful for having this and am currently working on editing a video for my Mum featuring Dad and the family. They offer a priceless service for families wishing to preserve their memories.”
