This, his talent for making the ordinary look extraordinary and the fact that he's a true pleasure to work with, make him a winning combination every time." (Tammy Peters, Director of Communications at Mandarin Oriental, New York) "I hired Nils for a pretty tedious task. He had to shoot the employees of the entire company and fit in the top executives for all countries who were in a whole day meeting popping in and out with no warning. He was very professional. Treated each new employee as the star of the day and remained creative under big pressure and tight deadline as this has to be done all in one day. I highly recommend Nils. He puts people at ease and bring a lot of experience on the table. It shows!" (Stephane Bee, Art Director, http://www.stephanebee.com/)
