"We found Andrei to be the consummate professional - both for documenting the condition of yachts our client's charter, and for marketing images. I would happily have him photograph…. just about anything! He was tremendously helpful in ways it never occurred to me to even ask for. Highly recommended!"
"I found Andrei when I was in "desperation mode" after finding my photographer was very unwell. I had a number of product shots for a magazine I publish several times yearly. I was in a panic. Andrei was the consummate professional in every respect! The quality of his work is outstanding and his attitude is so positive that I have wished many times since that our paths crossed sooner. Not only is Andrei a fabulous photographer, but his styling and post-photography work is exceptional. Accidentally shot with the French side facing? No problem. (He saved my sanity a couple of times with that one!) Working with this fine photographer is a pleasure in all respects. I wholeheartedly recommend him."
"What sets Smartphotos, and more specifically Andrei Antica, apart from the competition is a level of professionalism and attention to detail that is truly exceptional. Andrei is unquestionably passionate in his work and he stops at nothing to ensure you are satisfied with the results. Andrei is an experienced photographer in both technical skill and interpersonal know-how; that allows him to put his subjects at ease and get the images you are looking for. I recommend Andrei and Smartphotos without hesitation."
"Needing a photographer on short notice, I was fortunate enough to connect with Andrei Antica of Smart Photos. Although they did have a previous commitment, they were able to reschedule to accommodate my immediate need for a same day photo shoot. Both Andrei and John went above and beyond to ensure the photographs were of superior quality and detail. They also arrived back early the next morning to take some outstanding exterior photos for us. The results far exceeded my expectations and I would not hesitate to use them again in the future."
"It was a pleasure to work with Smartphotos and Andrei in particular. He was prepared for the initial meeting and understood our company's needs. He met our budget and worked with our timeline, providing professional images representing our company that we will be using in our print and website needs. I would recommend Andrei and Smartphotos, and will use them again."
"This is the first time I have used SmartPhoto's service although they have completed work for other of our departments here at Cummins Western Canada. Starting with our initial planning meetings through to the final production of an educational film, Mr. Antica and company demonstrated care and professionalism; care for our project, commitment to our schedule and budget, and tactful and helpful suggestions to the script. Excellent teamwork; excellent service! I look forward to working with SmartPhotos again."
"It was a pleasure to work with Andrei on the photography we required for pizza photos which included restaurant ambiance scenes. He had wonderful creativity and his attention to detail was incredible. He is truly passionate about his work and it shows in the final product. Andrei's patience to set up each shot ensuring his vision was captured for the final photo is to be admired. He had a very fast turnaround at our request which was so appreciated and the editing and photoshop work which he did was more than we had expected. He genuinely cared about our business and that we would get the results we desired from the photos he was taking. We would have no reservations about using Andrei again or recommending Andrei for any food photography or marketing photography you may have as he is an extremely skilled and talented photographer. We look forward to working with him again!"
"Andrei was referred to us through a mutual contact and we were very impressed with the service and quality of photos that we received. Our products required that they be shot at our facility with time and budget being factors in our decision making process. The entire photo shoot was professional and efficient as were the touch ups, follow up and delivery of the final images afterwards. We look forward to the opportunity to work with Andrei again in the future.!"
"We obtained the services of Andrei Antica at SmartPhotos for the creation of our first catalogue. I had known Andrei for a little while and knew him to be an honest, hard working and reliable individual, but had not worked with Andrei in his capacity as a photographer. Andrei's Enthusiasm, and Professionalism were equalled by his attention to detail. During the process of formulating our catalogue Andrei asked for our logo artwork.....long story short, we had been trying for 6 years to come up with a new company logo as we weren't happy with our original logo, we mentioned this to Andrei and within two days we had a new logo that everyone in the company Loves. The photos Andrei took are stunning and we learned quickly to listen to his helpful suggestions on the layout of our catalogue. The end product is a catalogue that we are very happy with and it has been received very well with nice comments from our customers. From the initial conversations to the end product, Andrei made the process smooth. If you are looking for a top notch professional photographer, then Andrei Antica and SmartPhotos are who you should use, they have my highest recommendation."
"If you are looking for first class services from a photography professional then look no further than Andrei and SmartPhotos. Andrei's ability to very quickly understand the requirements of every project enables him to translate your vision into reality. Over the years I have utilized Andrei's services to produce industrial photography, tradeshow marketing brochures and printed graphics for tradeshows booths. Upon requests to travel considerable distances to shoot location specific material Andrei is always keen and willing. His generous spirit and compassion for all aspects of his life and work shine through in the finished product that is received; I would not hesitate to recommend Andrei to anyone who is looking for any photographic or marketing material as well as personal services such as weddings, family gatherings etc. You will not be disappointed with Andrei's services and product quality!"
Working with Andrei was a truly delightful, fun and professional experience. We are extremely happy with our pictures and will be using many of them in our print and online marketing material and on our website! Thank you Andrei for a great photo shoot that captured our personalities as individuals and as a band."

"Thank you for the great work you have done for us. The stock of images you have provided will be used in our marketing initiatives for brochures, product catalogues, web marketing, trade show exhibit designs, as well as posters for conferences and the design of our offices. We especially appreciated the way you were able to emphasize the complexity and sophistication of our product detail while maintaining the impression of the size and scale of a cyclotron assembly. Your images of our team and work environment also project an excellent impression of our companies' infrastructure and capabilities. Our team greatly enjoyed working with you and we have no hesitation recommending you to anyone as a professional for industrial and product photography. With kind regards,"
"We would like to thank you for outstanding work you supplied on the production of our project and brochure for our Light Metal Age magazine advertising in May 2012. The pictures you supplied were of the highest quality and the presentation was superb. We will be completing the second part of the project in September and look forward to working with you. We would be pleased to recommend you to any of your potential customers, as your work is most satisfactory".
"We have worked on several projects with Smartphotos Photography and Graphic Design and found them to be professional with a great attention to detail. Their patience with our various drafts was appreciated, as we required a complete redesign of our brochure including fresh photos. The end result was a perfect representation of our company. They follow right through to production and delivery quickly, taking any worry away. I would not hesitate to recommend Smartphotos for any job, big or small."
"I needed a professional looking flyer to promote my CNC machine shop. Working on this project with Andrei made things so easy for me. He knows what he's doing and he does it fast with NO compromise to detail or quality. I will surly work with him again in the future as my business expands."
"Dear Mr. Antica, The Staff at Vancouver Hino would like to thank you for all of the great designs and photographs you have helped us with over the past year.

"Magic, professionalism, professionalism, quality… Just a few of the words that describe Andrei Antica. Under his skillful photographic direction, my woodworking projects and my hand-made wooden pieces become a work of art. Antica's photographs breathe life to objects. He has honed, with a camera as his tool, the ability to direct light exactly where it is needed so that the inanimate object begins to bear life and show its utility. Should your hands be so lucky, should your eyes have the privilege to glance over one of Antica's photos, only then should you consider yourself a lucky human being for having held light. The light that directs you towards true value."
"Dear Mr. Antica, I wish to thank you for the excellent service and quality of photography and graphic services provided to Xdesign Lightspeed in the past few months. Your exceptional talent, ability and skills at Photoshop and related graphic tools is an asset to the creative services you provide. I was also pleased with your competitive pricing, good delivery times, and the high quality print shops you use and look forward to working together on our next project."
"Few months ago, I was starting a new business and needed somebody to design my image. I trusted Smartphotos with the whole package: website, flyers, vehicle wrap, etc. I am a fussy customer and the first one to admit it. They did an excellent job, handled my requests in a professional manner and the price was reasonable. I will definitely give them more business in the future and recommend them to anyone in need of such service."
"We have worked with Smart Photos and Mr.Andrei Antica for more than 4 years now. The professionalism and quality of work provided to us by Smart Photos was just great! It was an absolute pleasure to work with them. They have always listened to our suggestion and thoughts and far exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend that you use Smart Photos for all your business needs."
