" ... when the heavens opened up, Richard calmly embraced the situation. Being the talent he is, he was able to turn what could have been a disastrous situation into imagery more magic and incredible than we ever expected. It reinforced the importance of hiring a true experienced professional. 
Thank you Richard."
