“I have recently returned from the Mara, and although I have stayed at Alex Walker’s Serian Ngare camp before, this time was different. There was the most brilliant photographer in residence – Trai Anfield. What a huge bonus! The camp is, was, and always will be one of my favourites, but having Trai in camp just took my stay to another level. She (of course) knows her way around a camera, but more importantly, she has the ability to explain things in a way that not only makes sense, but that also makes you feel as though you are working together. She clearly WANTS to teach, and she does this SO well. She also obviously has a real love of the bush and the wildlife that live there, and it was an absolute joy to spend a few days with her. Rain or shine – we had a great time – and the bonus was that I learned so much! If you have the chance to spend time with her – to learn from her – just do it. You won’t be sorry.”
Kay Moseley, photographer
"Enlightened Media captured the very essence of our holiday park in their filming and photographic work. Trai was a joy to work with, being pleasant and professional and good humoured throughout, despite early starts and long days. All of this and in (excellent) budget and on time. I cannot recommend Enlightened Media highly enough and look forward to working with them again in the near future."
Nigel Thompson, Golden Sands Holiday Park
"Enlightened Media offer a highly professional service and delivered an end product that far exceeded expectations. Trai and her team combine technical brilliance with an ability to grasp and understand whatever brief is asked of them which they translate into compelling footage, bang on message and to brief. Their creative and technical abilities dazzle, resulting in outstanding promotional footage and images which my clients and I were delighted in. Trai and her team are a pleasure to work with and deliver an exceptionally good value service. The best form of advertising is word of mouth and I have already recommended Enlightened Media to other clients and partners ."

"The Climate Change Schools Project, winners of National Climate Week’s inaugural ‘Best Educational Initiative’, worked with Enlightened Media in July 2011 to film our annual ‘Celebration Day’. Trai and her team captured the event in a terrifically inspiring and creative way, and it is a delight to be able to share the story of our celebration with others in such a unique film. We highly recommend Enlightened Media and hope to work with them again in future."
Dr. Krista McKinzey
Climate Change Schools Project Manager
"Our experience of working with Enlightened Media has been very positive. We worked on a suite of corporate videos together - the end result is professional, high quality and goes beyond the brief. Enlightened Media were professional throughout, maintaining high quality video standards and working well with all of our interview subjects. The completed videos look beautiful, thank you! "
Head of Internal Communication
"In spite of difficult weather conditions and problematic location logistics Trai and the team delivered what can only be described as an excellent service. Throughout the filming and editing process Trai remained understanding and flexible to our requirements and delivered a great film with results beyond our expectations. We would highly recommend Enlightened Media for any video production as they example a level of intuitive film making that only comes from a wealth of experience.
Hopefully I will be contacting you again soon!"
The Biscuit Factory is proud to launch Trai's first photographic exhibition, which takes a glimpse into her life behind the camera. The result is an eclectic collection of stunning images taken from Trai's personal and professional experiences.

TRAINING - feedback from Video Pioneers clients
I thought it was really well structured and flowed really well, as it taught you how to put a video together, things to be aware of like the lighting and sound and the importance of the difference type of shots and the best way to keep your filming steady.
I think that video will become increasingly important in how we show the work that we are doing with Clients and Customers and how we engage them.
"I liked how after a go at doing the filming, it was summarized and linked to the pages in the book so you knew where to find that information again when you need it."
"The trainers Trai and Ross were both really helpful and explained things in a clear and easy way."
"WOW! That was a fantastic presentation! You have an amazing gift of communicating with an audience. You covered so much material with such great enthusiasm, I enjoyed every minute of it. I've been working in TV production for 15 years and learned so much from you in an hour and half.
Thank you for sharing your time and knowledge with us today."
Lisa A. Jackson
"Wow, Trai, You certainly set the bar high for our speakers later in the week!
Everyone was raving about your presentation.
I knew you were going to be great, and you STILL exceeded my expectations!
This, I hope continues to happen every year for the foreseeable future."
