Hello Staff at Coast Photo. 

Last week, I contacted Coast Photo about a Tripod plate which I inadvertently threw out when my camera was dunked in the sea 5 years ago. I have tried local, Australian and American photographic suppliers of Slik Tripods over the years. 

Anastasia took my call and went away to look. A couple of hours later she phoned back to say they had one left. I duly ordered it.

That day, to order online, the website upload was slow and Anastasia was patient and helpful during this frustrating time (at least for me). 

The order was duly processed and Claudine followed up with emails etc. 

Today, my tripod plate arrived in less than a week. I live in Motueka. Again, another a little surprise with a Mackintosh toffee. 

These ladies gave superb, friendly,  informed advice on every step of the way of the process for a product that I had been told was not available just after the tripod was given to me as a gift. 

This is true personal customer service that is so rarely evident today. 

Kind regards,

Hi Claudine,

We are thrilled with the canvas.  It fits perfectly on our lounge wall – just the right dimensions for that space.

Thank you for your excellent service – I really appreciate you studying my effort, seeing the faults, and re-stitching the 3 photos.

The colours are very true and I love the fine grain of the canvas material.

We will certainly recommend you to others.

Kind regards,



Hi Claudine,

Binoculars arrived safely this morning – thank you – and I’m thrilled with the result achieved by your technician(s) who worked on it.

Please convey my appreciation.



Good morning Claudine,

We have received our camera battery this morning, and would like to thank you for the outstanding service we have received.

We are very impressed and will look to buy from you again in future.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Kind regards,



Hi Claudine

YAY! Your photo was spot on!! YOU ARE A LEGEND!! THANK YOU SO MUCH.

All good and submitted.

I wish you a good nite.


Hi Claudine

Thanks so much for adjusting my ID Photo this afternoon. I greatly appreciate your EXCELLENT AND FRIENDLY SERVICE.


When I first made contact about some pictures I wanted to get printed for my partners birthday I didn’t have much idea of what exactly I wanted or what I could have. Claudine was fantastic, really helpful. She explained all the options I had in detail and went out of her way to send me links of examples I could look at, and was happy to give her professional opinion on what would be my best pick.

I decided to go for the MDF boards and I was blown away with them when I got them. The quality was magnificent and I was just so happy with the overall result at a great price. My partner was blown away also. They now have pride of the main wall in the lounge. Thanks guys.


Hi Wayne and the others,

We have a staff member who’s partner has been diagnosed with cancer.  As a company we wanted to give them something of a positive nature for them to cherish during their time of need. We came up with the concept of a photograph of them both surrounded by their much loved pets. These guys certainly went out of their way to accommodate our unusual request.  As a result our staff member and his wife were truly overwhelmed with the end result. Thanks, you really went out of your way to make our concept into a reality.

Kind regards,

Lee Empson.

Hi Claudine

Thanks for that – and thanks for the exceptional service. I was really impressed with how helpful you were, finding all the different visa photo requirements for me!

I’ll be recommending photo and digital to all my friends.

Many thanks
