Xavier was great to work with. There was a high level of communication throughout the whole process and we were able to bounce ideas off each other very well.

Would highly recommend.

I contacted Photogenia for a corporate headshot as I was looking to update my online profiles. Xavier was professional and responded in a timely manner. Xavier suggested we do an outdoor session as it is a popular choice and offers variety from the standard background in a studio, this was a great idea as the photos turned out great and the scenery adds to the aesthetic of the photograph. He provided tips and pointers on how to capture the best pose/look from me and my face. He gave easy to follow directions and was a pleasure to talk to and work with. We ended up capturing a great photo that I am very proud to display on my linked-in and professional pages. I absolutely recommend Photogenia to those wanting a natural and professional corporate photo.

Fantastic! Xavier is more than a photographer, he cares about making you feel at ease enough to capture the best the shots possible. We required headshots for our daughter but had no idea where to start. Fortunately for us the first person my wife called for a quote was Xavier at Photogenia. His professionalism, knowledge and genuine interest to help us during that initial phonecall was enough to reassure us that our search for a photographer was complete. The home studio provides a relaxed, welcoming and professional environment which sets the scene for an enjoyable photoshoot session. Xavier's kind, caring and genuine nature was reflected in the hospitality he showed us. His expertise, craftsmenship and attention to detail were displayed in the quality of his photos. He ability to make one feel at ease was able to capture some awesome images of our daughter. We absolutely endorse Xavier as a person, and also Photogenia as a company, to anyone who values high quality photography services at competative prices. Sincere gratitude to you Xavier from the Metale family (Joe, Billie and daughter Charley).

Photogenia advertise that they specialise in events, headshots and location photos, and they definitely fulfill that promise! They recently attended a wine tasting event at our restaurant and took a great series of photos. On a night when our staff were just too busy to take any photos for Facebook and Instagram, Photogenia were there to capture the mood of the night! The photos were fantastic and delivered promptly (some even later that same night). The promotional shots were a great and we will use them for future events.
