I recently photographed Charles “Chuck” Schwab for Charles Schwab Inc. Like many photo sessions with CEO’s the actual taking of the photos is the easy part. Getting to that point often involves lots of hoops that need to be jumped through. In this case one was simply getting into the boardroom where we were to photograph “Chuck”. In the end it was a security guard that got us there. Every photographer should know that the building security guard could often be one of your best assets. Be nice to them!
