We take pride in what our clients say about us, not what we say about ourselves. Our clients are our most important source of advertising and we strive to do our best at all times for you. We work on images that may need attention, we work on images that will enhance your album or portfolio and guarantee your peace of mind.  We give you various dazzling special effects. Our photobooks are specially designed for you. We do not use the standard photobook templates which could end up being boring and leaving out some of your treasured images. We do PHOTOBOOKS which reach beyond your expectations.

These are some of the ‘professions’ we have achieved while working as retouches in Photoshop: Dentist, Optometrist, Surgeon, Landscaper, Roadworks & Maintenance, Roofing Specialist, Plumber, Florist, Magician (we make things disappear), Plastic Surgeon and Beauty Specialists.

Based in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, we cover the beach, the berg and the bush.

Hi Clive and Sean,

We just wanted to let you know that Adrian and I arrived safely in the UK. We were both sad to leave South Africa, but also excited to see my family and friends again. We really just wanted to say a huge thank you to you both for everything that you’ve done for us, and the absolutely stunning album that you complied for us. Absolutely everyone that has seen it has been blown away by it, and we’ve had so many comments on how amazing the photos are. My parents also thought it was fantastic, and the photos captured every aspect of the day so that we have no chance of forgetting anything! 

Thank you so much for helping us preserve the memories of our special day and giving us such beautiful pictures that we can enjoy for years and years to come. You were both so friendly and made us feel so at ease throughout the day, for which we are really greatful for! 

Best wishes

 I have no hesitation in recommending Clive Thompson as a gifted cover designer. I have had numerous compliments for the cover he designed for my book, “A Zimbabwe Adventure”.  I love it and so do those who buy the book!        

Clive worked long and hard on the layout to achieve my dream. He was amazingly patient with me and never complained about the changes I requested, or the many hours he spent working late at night to make my book beautifully ‘presentable’, including enhancing the awesome Photo Gallery. Even though some of the images were poor, he brought them back to life! It was a pleasure working with him.

– Monsters in bed, mice in the head          

Dear Clive, 

We would like to thank you for the opportunity to have worked with you in collating my book ‘Monsters in bed and mice in the head.’ The whole experience was effortless. It took so much pressure off of me as an author knowing that you were able to handle not on only the typesetting, but entrusting you with the creative design of my cover, and font choices – and of course the amazing Photo Gallery at the end of my book. 

Your insight and wisdom is invaluable and your input went way beyond your remuneration. You have a wealth of knowledge which you shared so freely. I would not hesitate to recommend you as a man of integrity and honour in bringing a project to fruition.
