Our church was without a website and so I approached Pete Smithies Media to help us out. Pete produced a great website that was easy-functioning and connected to Facebook to ensure our most current information was available. Updates and advice has always been given promptly, and the website has helped us immensely with different organisations hiring our building spaces from all over the country.  We recommend Pete Smithies Media.

Pete created and has managed my website for many years now. I don't have the time to update any content so I send a quick email to Pete and any change is completed in no time at all! Even the smallest request is never too much trouble which I really appreciate.

Simply put, he makes it all very easy for me! Thank you Pete!

I have known Pete for about eight years and found him to be, not only an excellent person to work with, but technologically and artistically talented. He has designed my book covers, websites, assisted me with computer problems etc., all with efficiency, patience and skill. His website designs are impressive and original. His experience spans over many years. I highly recommend him as one who you will want to use time and time again.

John Walton | Local & National Church Leader for forty years


I met Peter in 2009 at a business course and he was the guest speaker.

It was lucky for me that he did that speech, afterwards I decided to work with Peter to do my business website.

I was very impressed with the work that he did.

His work was outstanding with such professionalism.

I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I thoroughly recommend using Pete Smithies Media for all your photography, website, graphic design, and video production needs. Pete genuinely provides the personal touch that we all look for when wanting to capture special moments in our life or produce high-quality, professional works that stand out from the rest. His diverse skill set is impressive and the quality of his work is testament to the amount of time and effort he puts into each and every project.

Very professional and efficient services provided by Pete Smithes Media to tailor exacting requirements of my business needs. With such professional knowledge and industry experience, my expectations were exceeded.  Advice and better ways to deliver an end product, and meet my customer  requirements, resulted in the best possible solution. Many thanks Pete Smithes Media.

When my mother passed away in October 2011, I asked Pete if he could record Mums funeral service for us as a remembrance tribute for my family, and also to send to family members overseas who were unable to be with us.  He did this for us with professionalism, consideration and complete respect for us all during this difficult time.  He did an amazing job and I am delighted to have my DVD - A Reflection on Mums Life. Pete, you are awesome. Thank you

Julia Procter | Taihape


Pete has quickly taken up threads of our ideas and formed them into coherent and appealing media.

I appreciate Pete's honest appraisal and direction as the website for Konini Photo Blocks takes shape.

Janet Francis | Konini Photo Blocks


Pete has worked with us for a few years now, from completely designing our website for us, to updating it regularly. He has always been so easy to deal with, and so efficient. His design skills never fail to impress me, and every time he is asked to help us out we are blown away with the result.

Ben Adam, Rebecca Mead | Whanganui River Canoes



Pete has been responsive to our needs and tolerant with the dumb questions while getting our web site up and going.

Very helpful and prompt. We are happy to recommend his services.

Judy McAnulty | NZ Women’s Christian Temperance Union


Pete has made an awesome job of creating our website. We wanted a creative yet informative website that would be helpful for parents considering sending their children to our school. I have had great feedback from parents, and it is certainly helping to lift the profile of the school. The website is easy to navigate.  I love the photographs that he took of our school before getting the website up and running. Every time I go onto the website I think, “Wow, what a great little school!” (I know it’s great, but Pete has a gift for making something look its best!) He has also given excellent help and assistance to our school administrator who is responsible for sending “stuff” to him so that the website is kept up to date. Thanks Pete.

Kathy Forster | Principal Ngamatea School


Pete redesigned our fabulous Tarata Fishaway Lodge Website  and check out the amazing scenic rafting video he created. He helped us step by step and didn't complain about all our changes and questions along the way. We have had lots of great feedback. It is very professional and looks awesome and just what we wanted. It has boosted our business and it is so easy to keep it updated, just give Pete a call or drop an email.

Thanks Pete, we highly recommend you to everyone.

Pete Smithies is a true professional. I wanted an interactive cd rom to give to delegates attending a business forum I organise annually. His  guidance and idea were very valuable and the end product superb. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Simon Tupman, Director | Lawyers With A Life


We thank Pete for designing our website which shows our B & B in the best possible way. We continue to receive many positive comments about our site and gain the majority of our bookings as a result. We enjoy working with Pete and are impressed with his ideas, professionalism and prompt service

Pete and Lynette | Ohau Highland Bed and Breakfast


We asked Pete to update our website.  Thanks it works a treat.  Even when I want to have another tab added, its done without any fuss. And fast too.

Thanks Pete you’re the best. You make my job so easy.

Jackie B | Lifechurch, Palmerston North


My husband and I went into business for the first time last year.  As soon as we heard Pete speak at our Small Business Course we knew we wanted him to be part of our business.  Since that time he has been a wealth of knowledge, a person of practical IT solutions and guidance as well as being endlessly patient (as I am not very IT literate).  We recently completed our 6 month review and both my husband and I agreed that if we did it again we would definitely use Pete and his business.  We would highly recommend him to any business especially those that are too small to have a specialist IT support person.

Elizabeth Ross | Director  | Babaganush


Pete has developed our web site and has done an excellent job, he has also fixed our computers on occasions with success every visit. We at Westlorne highly recommend Pete and his team.

Roger Bidois| Managing Director | Westlorne Ltd


I know we have thanked you, but honestly, Pete, sometimes words can't really express what one wishes to say. Our web site is more than we hoped for : layout, phrasing, video and photos. We had no concept of Logo, colour etc However, within 24hrs you had come back to us with a suggested Logo (which, as you know, we love) and a draft of our website.

We have seen websites where there is too much happening, not easy to navigate etc but you certainly have a gift.

Bruce and Dimi Cooper | Tantillus Stud


If it wasn’t for Pete Smithies, Britain would still have it’s Empire and be Great. Talk about a cock –up! From the moment he stole (sorry, unknowingly found in his duffel coat!) pickled onions from our humble 24 hour cash- and- carry we knew we had to get rid of him any way we could. So we told him the website he created for us was fantastic, the ongoing help and support was unbelievable, his IT knowledge was without peer and he captured the flavour of our business perfectly. Did that  get rid of him? No, believe it or not, he is still beavering away coming up with ideas to assist our business – cheeky bugger.

Our website is very well visited because Pete optimised it effectively to appear high in the search engine ratings. We are very happy with the way that any requested changes appear on the site very rapidly. Pete is highly efficient and professional.

I would like to say: “Pete Smithies was a fantastic tutor and technician for new-users of ICT on the Computers in Homes project in Raetihi.

He was professional, warm, funny and compassionate so that learning computing and the Internet was a positive and worthwhile experience for them.

Pete is well organised in his contracts and totally solid in his reliability and commitment to people.

Di Das | National Coordinator | Computers in Homes Programme


"I found Pete a pleasure to deal with. On time, reliable, and providing a fast professional service, with great communication throughout".

Richard Aslett | Mangaweka "Yellow Church" Gallery, SH1.


Peter is to be warmly congratulated on creating our new web site, with flair flexibility and

expertise, given 1.the lack of help , and input we were able to give him, due to our inexperience and time constraints 2. the need for it to cover 4 directions, the 2 sites we operate and our mix of paid and volunteer staff. 3 he, literally had to go the "extra mile with the distance from his base to our operations which he happily undertook

Jeremy Nash | Chairman of Trustee | Craters of the Moon Charitable Trust


Pete took over website in its very early stages.

In my feeble attempt to explain myself not knowing a thing about computer technology and how it all works Pete has built the site exactly how I want it to be and still does today.
