About Us / Testimonials
John and Michelle lead a small team of dedicated professionals with a passion for expressive imagery. They live at the cutting edge of innovation, striving to produce the ‘wow’ factor in their work.
Both John and Michelle are certified as Google Trusted Photographers. They meet all criteria for image quality, connectivity and appropriateness for Google Street/Business View, Google Maps and Google Search. All photos must meet Google quality standards to ensure imagery and user experience is of the highest standard.
John, originally from the UK, brings a wealth of creativity which he says …
‘is likely due to my diverse background as a Royal Marine, a Teacher, helping run a family hotel, then setting up and running a number of businesses’.
Michelle, brought up in Toronto but with parental ties to Newfoundland, has a strong administrative background and is a passionate photographer who is seldom seen without a camera. She says…
‘It often takes us three times longer to get to a destination as I constantly want to stop to take a photo or two. Fortunately, John builds this into our travel time to ensure we’re never late – I think that’s the Marine in him’.
They both love to travel and particularly enjoy Resort and Hotel photography which they say helps create the perfect work/life balance and prompted the following comments…
‘We love photography,’ Michelle says. ‘We meet new people, see new places and do new things, it never really seems like work. It’s great to see the amazement on peoples faces when they first experience our work and ask us how it’s done’.
VIP360 recently completed a Virtual Tour of the ‘Overlander Mountain Lodge’ situated on the edge of Jasper National Park. This is a great example of their dedication and professionalism. The client was extremely happy with the results and stated that they ‘can’t imagine why any hotel would not want a Virtual Tour’.

“I have been so impressed with the excellence demonstrated by John and Michelle from VIP360. They spent an entire day travelling to our office on a weekend to take several professional photos for us. They went above and beyond with their level of customer service. John spent a lot of extra time making sure he had the perfect shots, and Michelle did an excellent job of communicating with us, editing photos and making a slideshow for our website and Google. This was our first experience with a Google approved photographer, and their level of expertise was obvious. I would recommend their services to anyone requiring specialized photography services.”
Dr. David Stock, Anchor Dental, Swift Current.
“We were so happy with the results of the Virtual Tours created by John and Michelle last Summer that we asked them if they would return to complete a Winter Tour.
The panoramas show off our Hotel and Resort with the greatest and beautiful attention to detail.
We have received great feedback regarding the tours, guests love being able to view the entire property this way and there is no doubt the Tours have increased our online reservations.
We have further work planned with John and Michelle and I highly recommend their service to anyone who has a business that only a Virtual Tour would do justice.”
Cory LeDrew, General Manager, Overlander Mountain Lodge/Jasper East Cabins, Alberta.
“John and Michelle truly captured the best of our lodge and surrounding areas.
They conducted the shoot with minimal impact to our guests and the outcome has been a great tool to share on our website and to prospective guests. We really appreciated their attention to detail and suggestions to enhance the shoot like making sure the fires were lit in our cabins.
They were also able to overcome challenges like smoke from forest fires looming in the distance, but still being able to capture the mountain views like any other day. Overall a great experience and product!”
Elora Braden, Marketing Manager, Heather Mountain Lodge/Great Canadian Heli-Skiing.
“Vip360 came and did a virtual tour of our hip little hotel, and what a pleasure. John and Michelle were unreal. Super professional and kind.
They were quick to get us the tour and quick on changes we requested.
Loved working with them and will again in the future.”
Dan Crerar, Crash Hotel, Edmonton.
“VIP360 completed a virtual tour of our dental practice to showcase our newly renovated space both on Google and our website. We were very impressed with their attention to detail and talent for capturing the space in an organized/creative way. I would highly recommend this service.”
Ben Quattrini, Canada Building Dental Group, Saskatoon.
“We are extremely happy with the 360 degree virtual tour created by VIP 360.
VIP 360 were very professional throughout the entire process and what great results they have delivered.
Their attention to the smallest detail and the pride in their work is well deserved.
Thanks again John and Michelle!”
Tristan Rawlings, Palliser EQ3, Saskatoon.
