It was so refreshing to work in a space where everything had been thought of to facilitate the running of a smooth snag-free shoot. There was amazing catering provided by the lovely Tara, a dazzling handling of all things logistical by Crystal and the ever present Ben, always nearby to lend a cheerful helping hand.
A fun, enjoyable and professional experience”
