"Mike, I have to say that until now I thought that taking a picture was about asking someone to smile and clicking a button. The images you have sent me have caused me a major problem; They are all outstanding. You seem to have captured just what I was hoping for even though I struggled to articulate it. This image has positioned me just where I wanted to be and I can’t thank you enough for going to the efforts which you did. You are amazing and I can’t thank you enough. I will definitely be passing your details onto anyone I know requiring a photographer at the top of his game. Now, let’s go to print! Best wishes Richard."
