Another solution is to take a break from traditional architectural techniques and work more directly with the people. Lifestyle and documentary-style shooting are fast paced, highly interactive, and require flexibility plus an open mind.
Working with kids is a special gift. In my experience, children tend to have open minds, open hearts, and are generally enthusiastic. I refer to this phenomenon as “kid magic” and I love it. I’m lucky to be the father of two, so I get a lot of kid magic in my personal life, and I’m particularly grateful when I get to experience a bit of kid magic during a shoot.
