This Workshop is GOLD! It's helped me a lot in my client interaction. Being a natural introvert, I'm not always comfortable chatting it up with my clients. Having a framework with which to approach each situation (client meetings, first 15 minutes of the shoot, moodboard reviews, etc) has been really helpful. It's given me a good sense of confidence and improved my overall business. 5 Stars for sure!
