- He's not a willing subject. He usually asks if I can get someone else and then comes up with excuses was to why he can't.
- He's more difficult to photograph than anyone else I know! I've dealt with three year olds, mind you.
- It helps keep marital harmony if I don't.
This is usually what I end up with, preceded by a grunt and a frustrated "Fine!"
However, he is a GREAT assistant. He will drive me to whatever destination I have in mind, even if I have no clue what I want. He will keep kids entertained and happy during the boring parts of a session. And he keeps me sane when I don't think anything I do is good enough.
