Before James started handling marketing and PR for CameraLends, we couldn't get any press. James has lead us through two very important PR launches landing dozens of stories in major industry outlets. Additionally, he keeps our community engaged over Facebook, Twitter and email marketing newsletters. I can't believe how much of a difference James has made!
