Of course, you can combine the editorial pictures with more portrait like pictures to get a complete coverage of the Government Relations Manager.

Moving on to the portraits it is really nice to use lenses with a maximum aperture value around f/1.2, f/1.4, f/1.8 or f/2.

And this can both be normal prime lenses (as 35mm/f1.4, 50mm/f1.8 etc) as well as telephoto prime lenses (such as 85/f1.8, 105/f2.8 etc).

And remember, it is always worth getting a bit uncomfortable in order to get the best picture of the Government Relations Manager. Ask the Government Relations Manager if you can join them for a working day, no matter where and in what surroundings.
