"It was a pleasure working with Bruce. He was VERY familiar with what looks good and what doesn't. He was very personable and easy to work with. Direct, but not too direct. He certainly knew all the perfect spots and angles to beautiful photos. He was very calm, patient, yet very funny too! Bruce and I shot for a few hours (10am- 4:30pm) taking pictures with many different props, lighting, layers, and clothing pieces. He captured many very creative, artistic, and romantic like shots. He kept me very well engaged, while maintaining a fun but relaxed atmosphere. Bruce really has a great eye for beautiful shots, and I am honored to have worked side by side with him to create such beautiful works of art. (I especially loved how Bruce took that extra time to make sure that the photos did not look staged, fake, or too cliche - he created lovely images that captured the beauty within every aspect of our shots. ) Bruce was totally dedicated to getting great shots - even sitting on the floor a few times for a better angle! He also worked with me to make few additional changes to our photos such as removing an Exit sign from the background of the studio, to softening up an image. Bruce's patience, professionalism, skills, and artistic eye were and are, all deeply appreciated. Everyone else whom I have spoken with in regards to Bruce and his work; loved him; and love his work. I highly recommend Bruce and I would certainly love the opportunity to work with him again. Nothing short of AMAZING!" Read less
