    Amazing concept to improve not just your photos, but your interaction with clients

    Posted by Michael A. Gruich Jr. on 19th Oct 2017

    After seeing something cimilar being sold for $175.00 online, I decided to search for other options and came across "Lead the Way". I was able to see samples, actual testimonials and it was a great value for the money.
    Took me a couple of hours to get through things and I used a lot of it on my next session that was a couple of days later. Yes, it really worked. I always have a good relationship and talk with my clients, this enhanced things quite a bit for the camera and the photos I was taking. My clients have been very impressed and seem to enjoy themselves even more.
