WHAT OUR READERS SAY...


You have such a beautiful magazine! I always make sure to get a copy and think the photography is exquisite. I also read the ads and try to support your advertisers. – Phyllis A.

I came across your magazine while traveling the Sunshine Coast and was delighted to discover it. The colors and picture choices were inspiring. – Braden B.

We just picked up the latest ZOOM at The Bakery in Sechelt, and it's one of the best issues we've seen. What I love: it's free and readily available; the ads that make ZOOM free keep up the tone and quality of the photos in the articles. Thank you for producing an outstanding Coast magazine! - Joan W.

I am relatively new to the Sunshine Coast and your magazine never fails to amaze and delight me. Besides the professional beauty of the publication it has that wonderful human connection to the pieces such as the touching story of Diego and events celebrating our communities. I am a fiber artist and was very pleased with the article that you did for the show at the Fibre Works Gallery recently called Under My Feet. Yes, we are very fortunate to have a publication of your calibre right here on the Sunshine Coast. Thank you! – Constance C.

I love your publication, and send it to family who used to live on the Sunshine Coast.” – Marion

Discovered your magazine when we visited Sechelt this past week. Just love it! The photos are fabulous and I love the way you have presented them. The bright, intense colours seem to meld together to make a vibrant presence. Please tell the advertisers that we used the ads to find places, goods etc. that we were interested in. – Sally S.

I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude and commendation on your “ZOOM” presentation for the PH Women’s Connection. I am a relatively new coaster and when I picked up my first copy of ZOOM in 2010 I remember how delighted I was by its content. Seeing the beauty and possibilities of what the coast might offer me in pictures strengthened my resolve that I had made a good decision moving here. Your presentation today reflected to me a picture of deep passion and commitment to your values. Now that I have met the man behind this work it will mean even more. I look forward to the next issue of ZOOM. I am inspired. – Helga G.

I must say I’m very impressed by your publication – the design, layout etc. are all very professional! – Louise A.

Your magazine is a work of art and we appreciate all the hard and fine work that goes into it. – Ron and Carol in Halfmoon Bay
