A more productive question would be:
What's the secret to making a successful photo session.... for great photos will come from a successful photo session.
Here's my answer. (off the top of my head)

"Understanding the client's need and purpose for the photography, bringing the production tools and skills to meet the challenges of the photo shoot, giving the client feedback so they have a great shoot experience, making it easy for the client to view and select the best images for their needs, provide post shoot retouching to make the selected images great."

The people who are my long time repeat clients... My creative colleagues... The bay area with it's amazing talented, intelligent and interesting folk... Creative event planners who I love working with... The great educational institutions here that are the nexus of many photo projects I've had the pleasure to shoot, such as portraits of newly minted young doctors at UCSF, The World Education Conference at UC Berkeley, visiting VIP lectures at Stanford, and countless seminars I've photographed over the last 30 years at many lovely hotels. The photo workshops I taught... I enjoy everything about the work I do...

It's a great story! Funny... a little sad and quite ironic. I'll tell you over cocktails sometime.

30 years experience has allowed me to handle nearly all photo assignments. I've shot interiors for trade journals and interior designers, Travel and Panoramas for education projects funded by the National Science Foundation, Public Relations photo projects for (arguably) the largest PR firm in america: Hill & Knowlton, cover Northern California events for the Israeli Consolate and AJC, photograph artworks for the Oakland Museum-where my wedding work is in their permanent collection (4 large prints purchased for the show in 2003, WEDDINGS: CALIFORNIA STYLE), I am often referred to clients by concierges at San francisco best hotels for Business portraits, event coverage and family pictures. I'm friendly, funny and comfortable with all people. Dogs really like me.
