Only the best of photographers bring that to their work.”“Walter matches my level of concern about the project - which means everything to me. Independent business owners juggle a lot of projects - but you never feel that working with Walter.”“It’s important to me that I work with ‘go-to’ people. Walter offers this “trust” quality. Basically, I don’t have to worry about the project once I’ve handed it over to Walter."
