Santa photography in Australia for leading shopping centre groups


As a marketing manager at several shopping centres, I have engaged Terry Rogan and his Company to deliver Santa photography for more than fifteen years. Flexible to customize an offer that meets the local demographic, his photo package prices are very competitive compared with the nearby majors.

He remains evolutionary with additional services including email and sms value add to the customer for social sharing. His operational experience ensured optimum set management, photo style and customer engagement.

Our customer survey feedback was always very positive. I have also engaged his professional photography services, including drone, to reportage promotions, new store opening and website content.

I endorse Terry and Picture Me as industry experts who will deliver the highest professional standards.
