Steven J. Levin Testimonial

Mitch, just wanted to let you know that I had that same large hats painting photographed by another photographer that you had done for me because I wanted to compare the results.

Yours is by far the better one.

The old method I had been relying on of going from transparency first and then to a scan is really pretty inferior now that I see them side by side.

Wish I’d had you photographing my works these past many years. Oh well, live and learn. Thanks!
