I love the process. The need to be on your game to capture a prefect moment, to interact with clients, to manage their expectations and deliver a product which underscores the value of professional photography.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
With commercial shoots the key is to set expectations upfront. A run sheet, what the client can do to get the most from the day, what to expect from me on-site, where I will place equipment, etc. when the client feels informed they can relax and let the session unfold. For events it is very important to take charge, to be personable and (gently) guide people to capture the best moments. Also, to contrast that, it's important to be invisible when required.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I typically receive great feedback from client, but was formally acknowledged by this year's Casey Relay for Cancer for doing a great job at their event.
