His experience as a DJ has given him an awareness of DJ needs - and his experience as a videographer has taught him why those needs are often ignored, and why many DJs are "not recommended" by videographers (and photographers). Learn specifics of why videographers do what they do, and why the dance floor doesn't need to be a battleground between wedding professionals with different needs.
