As an international location photographer, l have experienced many scenarios whilst creatively documenting the built environment.                          
Communication with the client is initially the main focus. When a client and photographer jointly accept a commission, a relationship begins – usually with a phone number, plans, creative requirements and an address.                                
​To begin a commission (assuming the estimates have been accepted) one must travel, source accommodation, photograph … and repeat 3 days in a row per project (minimum). Observing weather conditions is an art in itself. The conditions must be suitable for photography. Confirming with the client that construction and landscape is complete. Having access to the project prior to arrival is paramount to a smooth creative experience for the photographer. Projects in first, second or third tier cities in China require sufficient spoken Mandarin language.                                                                                           During the documentation of creatively capturing the built environment, the photographer communicates with CEO’s, Marketing managers, architects, interior and landscape designers, civil and structural engineers, drivers and guards.
