It’s customary for commercial assignments to involve collaboration. All the participants in the project need to be prepared to work together.
Photography, the way I practice it, is a solitary pursuit. This means only my eye is in the viewfinder and only my finger releases the shutter.
That’s the way I like it, even though I make my living with a camera through hired commissions.
Naturally, the art buyer is entitled to get what they want for their money. That means I have to balance my personal inclinations with the desires of those who write the check.
As long as I remember to stay on track, it always works out.
