Seeing through the mind of my client has been important part of my photography. Many times, when working directly for a client, they rely on my vision to create art from their products. Other times, the client has a clear vision of what they want and it is my job to understand that and to bring it to life.
When working with an art director however, it is imperative that I be able to see through their eyes. I have to create an image that they and their team have imagined.
Commercial photography has no place for egos. We are a creative team and have to function as a team. If my vision is different than that of the client, it is the client that takes precedence. That being said, after we get the shot that the client is asking for, if it is possible, I will deliver an additional version that gives the client a choice, something above and beyond what is expected.
