I don’t have to go far to drop in on a good client. Clayton, Missouri is close to my home office and is also where my wife works. Just a few days ago I stopped by Brighton which has their main office in the heart of Clayton, St. Louis’ second downtown.
I was there to see Jerry Gennaria to talk some shop and catch up on what we’re each doing photographically.
Jerry’s role on the strategy side at Brighton puts him in good company with the firm’s leadership and as a former creative, it allows him to have some offer valuable insight to his clients that’s based on his previous creative stints.
Jerry is also a rabid photographer and has an equipment arsenal that dwarfs mine. He has three distinct systems from Sony, Fuji and Canon.
Very few of my clients have Jerry’s insights into what it takes to actually manage the photographic craft. That alone makes him a valuable client, but all of the other aspects of his generous personality is what makes him a friend.
