View Full Version : A Special thanks to DUG

23-01-2006, 03:21 AM
I would really like to specially thank ausfish member DUG aka Doug Steely - I was in a difficult situation and desperately needed a photographer at short notice for my recent wedding in Australia - After posting my situation on Ausfish chat board Dug came to the rescue, and offered his services. Even though he couldnt make me look like Brad Pitt, he certainly did a fasnastic job in making my wife a princess - Dug your photos are brilliant and and 2 families in 2 different countries are extremely grateful to you for preserving our memories. I highly reccommend Dug for all your proffesional photographic needs (even though weddings are not his specialty) he is a top bloke and a brilliant photographer - thanks again Doug - Cheers, Raef and Yuko

wow........but who's the ugly guy in the background??????? ;D

He kept insisting on getting into the shots I kept trying to get him out that is why he is in the background.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Photography is a hell of a way to make a living Yuko was beautiful! ( she is a princess Raef! )

Raef was not bad either but just not my style ;)

I knew of Dug from his days of great service at the University up here in Rocky. You might not remember me from Uni Doug but you had quite a reputation as a good photographer in my circle of contacts anyway.
Great wedding pics too btw, congrats you two, to quote someone from somewhere (Buggered if I know where this came from but it sounds good)......
'wish you every happiness and may you always have the very best of the good things in life'

(Doug, you'd remember me from Biology if you remember me at all - Paul Graham)

Paul - that is a line from an Adam Brand song called "The Good Things in Life"

23-01-2006, 09:56 PM
Hey Paul, Long time, I would like to tell you just how much I miss CQU but they won't let me use that kind of language on a family site ::)

So I will say I miss a lot of the good people there but NOT the Uni and not the warders of the asylum ;) ;)

Cheers dug

Living on the sunny coast and loving it!
