Barney could never do enough to make the various aspects come together. He was relentless in securing models, addressing any issues and then doing the photos in the studio and on location and editing with ghost mannequin photos as well. He was always polite and personable. The fee seemed too low for the work he put in and I was always amazed at how much he did. It turned out that it was, in fact, more than the quote but that makes sense.Highly recommended!
It has been an absolute pleasure to have Barney work with us again on this project. Indeed, his photography is simply outstanding and his engaging writing style leaves you wanting to read more. Thank you Barney for another great effort.
