I selected Hide to photograph my classic Mercedes. My decision was not based on his bid price, which was slightly higher than the other bidders. My feeling is that the price is secondary to the project. I selected Hide because of his attitude toward my project; he addressed my specific need. Other bidders sent the standard reply, telling me that they are excellent wedding and baby photographers, etc. I felt that Hide was the only bidder who actually took the time to read my comments and consider my project as special.
At the shoot, he exhibited every characteristic that I needed to make my project work. He was patient, took direction and suggestions with enthusiasm, and added his own creativity and technical experience to bring my project to a very successful conclusion. Hide is a delightful person and an excellent photographer.
I will definitely hire him again in the future.
