Kind Words

At Coboat we work hard, fast and focused – before we party. So we are happy that in Amit we found the perfect partner for this project. She turned a mess into a piece of art. This might sound as if I am exaggerating a bit. True. But just a bit. Amit understood (and created) the spirit of Coboat and transformed it into words. Fast. Thanks for your support and your commitment!

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Amit Janco. As the former editor of Inspired Bali  I had the pleasure of receiving and reviewing several of Amit’s articles. Amit has exhibited outstanding abilities in writing and editing, with a good sense of rhythm and detail. I know her as a thorough, diligent and hard-working editor. I found her to be an innovative thinker, enthusiastic, and keen to pitch story ideas and contribute images. The many photographs that she submitted have graced our past issues. She would make an excellent contribution to any research, writing or editorial projects.

I was so grateful to have Amit work on the editing and proofreading of my teaching manual. She did a fabulous job. Very professional!

At Bali Silent Retreat, we try to pour love and divine energy into our environment, our creations and activities; food, gardening, yoga, silence and meditation. From the outset, we intended to incorporate a garden labyrinth into our site design. Thanks to the vision and persistence of one of our earliest supporters, Amit Janco – a writer and photographer who dreamed of creating her first labyrinth (and the first one on the island of Bali) – and with the invaluable assistance of staff and volunteers, our labyrinth was in place long before our facilities were completed. We feel blessed to have the labyrinth on-site; and we’re grateful to Amit for bringing it to fruition with such dedication and attention to detail. We think our labyrinth’s ‘magic’ has grown from the love and commitment that accompanied its installation.

Thanks for offering to photograph my work. I really appreciate you helping me meet a deadline, for being available at short notice, for being open to my ideas, offering suggestions and producing such great shots! It was fun working with you – a creative collaboration made possible by your flexibility, enthusiasm for the subject, sensitivity and sense of humour! You have a lovely way of working, engaging with the subject sensitively and with enthusiasm and in a very nice relaxed manner. I would love to do more collaborative work in the future!

Amit has an incredible eye for beauty. Over the four days of our photo shoot in and around Ubud, she continuously sought to portray myself in the most creative and beautiful light. If one is born with a creative eye and mind, then she has it all. Amit was upbeat and energetic; but also patient in finding the most creative solutions whenever we found ourselves in the most unexpected (and unusual!) circumstances. Collaborating with Amit was a tremendously enjoyable experience, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for that extra creative edge!
