Joe was very helpful and communicative. The shoulder mount kit was exactly as described and he even included a bag for me. Thanks!

Very down to earth and knowledgeable in his craft. A great person to work with and look forward to in the future.

Joe was very accommodating for my pickup and drop off. Equipment was in great shape and worked well. I only wish I had been told that the fan needed to be turned on to take the light to full output.
