Anyone have suggestions on where to enter the client (who hired you for the shoot) in LR metadata? I've been doing that in the keywords field, but would prefer to have it elsewhere if there's a practical way to do that.

I would think that down in the "Workflow" area of the LR metadata window, "Job Identifier" would be what you are looking for. Or you could "hijack" a field from say, IPTC or Image, such as "Headline" or "Intellectual category" ... most photographers shooting for clients (like our portrait studio) don't bother putting anything in those fields ...

This is how i do it:
I'm putting al information about images into the metadata of the images (where, what, when, copyrights)
All information about my workflow (what needs keywording, what needs edtiting, wich client, work in progress/delivered, etc) i put into catalog sets. Normaly this information wil never be synchronised to the original files. It's only information for me.
