WHAT THEY ARE SAYING?
“You did a nice job of creating a sense of place with your backdrops and props, you had a great presence on camera and your instruction was very clear. I really enjoyed the balance you found between action and instruction. You were also able to capture so much within 6 minutes, which I know we all really appreciate.”
