Dear Fiona

I have wanted to be seen as an expert in the field of headshot photography but didn’t know how to go about marketing myself.

After working with you during this past year, I have learnt so much collaborating alongside you, and you have given me some great opportunities.

Thanks to your amazing network, skill and expertise, I had the opportunity to attend a workshop in London. Following on from the workshop a blog I have written has been accepted by the Guardian Small Business journalist and is going online today.

Without your support and encouragement I certainly wouldn’t have even contemplated sending something to a national newspaper. I might actually be on the way to becoming an expert!

I certainly will never have any problem recommending you to anyone who needs and understands how important PR is for their business.

Thank you,

Lis McDermott
