In the Shadow of the Capitol

3 Minutes and counting

Thursday, January 25, 2007 Concept/Objective:

Assignment ConstructSo, this is the anatomy of an assignment. Specifically, it’s about how it came together, and was executed, and how, when you’re a professional, with the right tools, you can make it happen, despite countless challenges. On January 16, the phone rang. It was the Art Director for a publication group that was handling a regional publication that wanted a portrait of a Member of Congress. The interview was schedule for January 24th, and the Communications Director also wanted the photography to take place that day. We discussed the details—small circulation regional trade magazine, cover and single image inside. When asked about their budget, their figures were slightly lower than where I felt comfortable being, by about 20%. A negotiation ensued, and the result raised the figure to 10% less than I had originally proposed, and I forwarded on a contract to that effect, which was signed and returned prior to the shoot taking place.Assignment Construct
