3 Ways to Use Client Reviews

I’m always surprised to hear that many photographers don’t follow up with their clients for a review. When I ask why, their answer is usually something like “I don’t want to bother them”, or “I don’t really have a need”. After some more conversation, I realize that maybe the reason many photographers don’t ask for a […]
