"I tend to meet a lot of people in my travels, but rarely have I found two people like you. You really understand exactly what is important and can 'size up' a situation in seconds. Underwater you are both completely natural and your photography is first rate. An amazing team and genuinely lovely people. It was a pleasure to work with you and I sincerely look forward to doing so often! And you make a mean cup of coffee, so I've found my soul mates!"
"Pro's pros. That is how I think of both Leon and Claudia. I have worked with both of them on a number of occasions, and both are super. They make a great team! Both know the ocean, and they always try their best to accommodate the client's specific needs. And always with a smile! I wish they were my neighbours."
November 2005 Stuart Cove's Digital Shark Shootout 2005, Nassau, Bahamas
" Claudia, Your organisation skills and talent for photography would be an asset to any program. It was great to see you and Leon again, as always. Thanks so much for your help. This was, by far, the best sharks shooter program ever."
"Dear Claudia, we both had a great time and especially enjoyed meeting the both of you."
Jackie and Mary Lou Reid
" Leon and Claudia, Thanks again for all of your help! I really had an awesome time!"
"Claudia, Again, thanks to you and all of the other wonderfully helpful folks at Fin Photo. I think I can speak for everyone when I say that we all had a most enjoyable time, and took some good pictures. We surely could not have done that without your help and resourses. Please let me know if you and Leon plan to lead any trips in the future. I'd like to be one of the first to sign up, schedule permitting."
ANDREA & ANTONELLA FERRARI
"Dear Claudia and Leon, Just a few short lines to thank you for your kindness and to tell you how much we loved spending our holiday in Sorido with you two - you certainly made the difference! There are few special people with whom it all "clicks" immediately, and you two were exactly like that. How many good laughs we had together!"
Thank you for always being so pleasant, professional and dedicated. We have been very fortunate to have you working for us. You have both done a wonderful job. We want you to know that we have really appreciated your hard work and dedication for close to 7 years - you were are tremendous asset to the company. Stuart Cove's will never be the same without you!"
Wow, what a write up! If only half of that gets in I'll be pleased. The word GREAT comes to mind quickly. Even if it doesn't get past the cutting room floor I am impressed. It might be too good to print at all. That's ok, I have the original now! Hope to see you guys again down here sometime soon"
Dear Leon, My friend Lisa Gentil told me what happened and we in London all send you our fondest thoughts. I hope that you will remember our last morning's trip. It was magical and we enjoyed it very much. Let us hope and pray that rehabilitation is proceeding at pace. Imagine what a story you will have to tell.
Our lives pale in comparison.
" Leon - I am sure Winston will bring the pictures to school, you have already been the subject of 2 essays!
Thanks, Carleen and your faithful assistant Winston Simone
"Dear Stuart and Michelle Cove
I feel the need to mention the outstanding job done by Claudia and her staff at the Fin Photo center. I am an amateur photographer and Claudia was most patient in explaining to me the answers to the seemingly thousands of questions I had. Of course my photos were ok, but none matched the professional touch of the Fin Photo Staff. I run a small business of my own, and understand the value of having employees like Claudia on staff. These are the people that truly understand customer service. We will definitely be back. Thanks again for a wonderful and memorable time"
"Dear Claudia. I want to thank you for taking care of the problem we encountered with our order. I appreciate this high level of customer service and would recommend your company to anyone I know that is visiting the Bahamas and wants to scuba dive!Thank-you!"
"Dear Leon, the boys loved diving with you. You have such positive, calm energy. You handle all the instruction and the many details so well. Hope the season continues to be full of sunshine and smooth water. Thank-you -see you next year!
Love Leslie Regan (for Parker and Robbie)
