I had a job photographing a corporation that wanted me to somehow portray their middle aged, grey-suited employees as young, colourful hipsters. After the job was completed, the feedback from the company was positive, and the agency managing the job signed off on it.
A few days later, the CEO of the company got back in touch, asking if I could do another half day to try a different idea he had for the hero shot for their website. The idea was completely different from what they had included in their initial brief, but the agency told me to humor him.
I went back to shoot his new idea. While doing so, I heard the marketing manager tell my assistant how great the photography I’d done was. The CEO then said:
Client: Yeah, so great he had to come back to do it again.
