Photo Assignments

“How you structure an assignment so it does what the client wants, satisfies you, and solves his problems at the same time becomes almost conceptual and political, instead of photographic.  I try as much as possible to talk with the clients who travel with me, and say ‘Look, what you’ve got me doing at this point is something that I wouldn’t shoot unless you were paying me.  I’ll be happy to shoot it, and do the best job I can, but let’s try to make it something that’s so exciting that I would shoot it anyway.'” – Jay Maisel

  1. Maisel is certainly a good source of advice for photography!
