I can genuinely say that Michelle (Chelle) was one of, if not THE, finest videographers i saw on my 3 years working with her on the island of Koh Tao in Thailand. The skill and energy which she put into her work was a cut above the rest. From daring underwater shots, to the studio editing, and the final presentation, the work was fantastic. Some of the videos I had the pleasure of seeing were truly remarkable and i would highly recommend Chelle to anyone..! She is sorely missed!

Professionalism, creative, organized, are just a few words to describe Michelle while she was working on a video for my tour company. She was easy to work with, and communicated clearly with me and my retail partners. She managed my expectations, included me in the filming process and delivered a GREAT video in a short period of time. I am positive she will succeed at anything she does, due to her drive and positive attitude.

Chelle is a sunray who gets everyone relaxed in front of the camera. She finds and catches those rememberable moments you just want to have on video for ever to share your most fantastic moments with family and friends.

She is also very good with her diving skills and her film making.  She has no problem organising groups , teaching, and getting the best out of people.
She really is a nice kid and very good at what she does.
