I was hired to photograph an 800-person outdoor event. At one point, all the attendees were standing in a field.
Client: So we need you guys to get a shot from
up above. Like, from an aerial view.
Me: Uhhh… you didn’t mention any aerial shots before today.
Client: Is that a problem?
Me: Well, neither me nor my camera can fly. Is there someplace I can go to get a higher angle?
Client: How about from the roof of our building?
Me: That could work? Does it have roof access?
Me: That could be a problem.
Client: It’s also nowhere near here.
