Colleen and Photo4life has been very generous with her time and photographic skills, Colleen took on a number of assignments for both Honeyguide and Big Life Foundation. She took some great photos of all the Big Life rangers field operations in Tanzania, this involved Coll going and living with the rangers for specific periods at a time, travelling from Ranger post to Ranger Post and going on night patrols, foot patrols and everything else the rangers did on duty; she built up a great rapport and trust with the rangers and delivered some stunning photographs.

The Enduimet WMA (Wildlife Management Area) committee asked Colleen for help to build their official website, and partnering with Honeyguide, Colleen developed a stunning website that showed the beauty of the community, wildlife and landscape. Colleen is a very dedicated conservationist and a natural in the field. We cannot thank her enough for what she did for the communities and their conservation efforts.

We are very happy with our new website that Colleen has made for us. We have had a terrific response from all who have used and looked at it and it has increased our bookings. She has built it in such a way that is very informative and yet user friendly at the same time. Colleen has an eye for detail in all parts of the building process with imaginative ideas and excellent photography. We enjoyed working with her enormously.

Colleen is a self employed and highly motivated web designer, photographer and writer. Every project she takes on directly giving it, its own distinct and imaginative appeal and individual character.

She helped pave the way for our new concepts and programs, when producing our new and ideal, eye-catching website. Colleen also served TATO’s (Tanzanian Association of Tour Operators) Conservation Committee (before returning to Kenya), providing gratis advertising and photographic services, for which we are indebted.

I highly recommend Colleen and her team for their commercial and community/conservation work in professional graphics, web designs, photography & writing.

Working with Colleen to develop a brochure for our lodge was a delight. She was very professional and her attention to detail and natural artistic talent shines through. Given the short time frame we gave her, she worked tirelessly to provide us with the material we needed, which we are extremely grateful for and very pleased with the end result. Thank-you again.

Colleen, thanks for coming to Dar and taking pictures of our place: many photographers have passed through the Slipway, but generally have focused on the obvious. You have managed to show us some less known and intriguing sides of our property: I am grateful.

I came across Colleen Hogg's website as I frantically tried to find a photographer for an assignment in the coffee producing regions in Kenya. It was a golden find. Colleen has a knack for finding that delicate balance between goofy chumminess and respectful professionalism. The results are rewarding to say the very least.

Colleen is undoubtedly very professional in taking Photographs, using state-of-the-art cameras which produce high resolution photographs. She is devoted to her art and highly passionate to photography. I was absolutely mesmerized with Colleen’s first professional Filming exercise with us, Trips to various National Parks, villages, Lake Victoria and the Coast saw us obtain an amazing amount of footage. The final 25-minutes Movie was a master-piece. Well done Colleen. The future should brave itself for a huge surprise from Colleen's portal of imagination.

Colleen Hogg was commissioned by Cornel Ngaleku Children Centre to re-develop the Centre's website and in addition to this contract she undertook to the Centre to take a full suite of photographs of the orphaned children and their surroundings at the Centre in Rombo District, Kilimanjaro Region of Tanzania. Colleen's photos of the children were of the highest quality and captured very well their characters and their joyful interactions with other children and their carers. Many of these photographs are now included in the website www.ngaleku.org and we are very proud of the way these photographs portray the Centre. We are very grateful to Colleen for the high quality of her work.
