No, I would not host them again.
"Brittany was amazing and so were her models! We had an unfortunate incident with her photographer (not the renter's fault of course) who was so rude to my wife and I that we nearly asked her to leave. The photographer was getting frustrated that she couldn't understand how to use strobe lighting. She argued when I asked her to use a sandbag on our light stands (with our strobes attached) and was a bit abrasive throughout the shoot (we tried our best to stay out of her way). The photographer only had a 24-105mm kit lens and so she couldn't fit her group shots on a standard 107" white seamless due to wide angle lens distortion. The photographer somehow convinced her that this was our fault and Brittany gave us the 'tip' that we needed a 'bigger background'. I'm confused why they didn't use the 25' of white wall with a vinyl floordrop if space was an issue. Because the photographer seemed so new and inexperienced shooting in a studio, I politely explained that she needed a telephoto lens to 'compress' the background and she needed to shoot from a further distance. I showed her what my unedited eCommerce photos on white look like (I am a commercial photographer with 20 years experience). She made a disgusted face and a few more rude remarks. My advice: hire a better photographer. What we rent is just a space - what you do with it is your choice. Blaming the studio owner because the photographer doesn't know what she's doing is a bit unfair."
