"We were directed to GibsonKochanek by our media company, who recommended their studio for some important portrait work. It was obvious from the moment we walked through the door that Marta and Barbara were skilled managers of people, as well as photographers. Their charm and charisma were absolutely pivotal to their direction consequently of big personalities to achieve images that not only reflected the best of her subjects, but which stand in our view as works of art in and of themselves. It’s no surprise everyone wanted a copy of their own pictures, even though they were taken for the purposes of a commercial project. Marta and Barbara are real talents, and deserve all of their success. We shall never use anyone else for as long as they remain available for work."
