Philip Slade, Senior Architect, Blair Architects
Thomas Ryan was recommended to this Office by Heritage Tasmania to photograph the existing conditions of the Heritage listed Launceston Post Office which was a condition of the approval before alterations were carried out.
Under the Approval Thomas had to abide by the conditions for "Photographic Recording of Heritage Places and Objects" which required a Report, Contact Sheets, and Photographs - Tiff & RAW files. Thomas successfully completed this task in an efficient and professional manner and we would have no hesitation to use him again or recommend him for his photographic work to prospective clients.

We wish to commend you on your professional approach to your role as Guest Judge at our recent Artscape Exhibition. Artscape is a student exhibition of Visual Arts and Film and TV. With over 1200 artworks to view in detail your efforts to give each one your very creative viewpoint and interpretation was greatly appreciated. We were extremely grateful for the six hours you spent adjudicating each year level. As art teachers, we were impressed by your insightful and careful consideration with the most commendable art comments we have had in some years.
These comments were so impressive; we typed them up for all the most outstanding artworks and Judges Special mention selections so our public viewers over the week end could read your commendations. They were well received by our visitors and especially brought joy to our hard working and talented students who were thrilled to read your reviews.
Thank you once again for your time, effort, and your professional expertise in the field of Visual Arts. We highly recommend you for any position or role that will value your experience and practical ability to evaluate Visual Art.
