But perhaps he felt comfortable saying no in that situation because he felt he's "experienced/knowledgable" enough about those type of shoots to allow himself an opinion because he's done so many of them and it's just a "small staff photographer" after all?

This shoot however, is with a "big" photographer, so yeah, he probably felt intimitated. Because it was a high profile fashion photographer who is supposed to know everything better than Zac. But I'm not sure it's the specific photographer per sé but rather the type of shoot. Where Zac probably thinks he doesn't know enough to object to anything and just goes along with it.

Just like Burr said in Details, he's so concerned with pleasing people around him that he forgets about himself/the most important thing. When your ass is on the line, it doesn't matter if the photographer is more experienced - ridiculous things are ridiculous and he should say so. He's not there to make friends with the photographer.

So, I think he's at a point where he sometimes needs to put his foot down even though he might not be the most knowledgable person about something. Of course he should still listen to other (more experienced) peoples opinion but he also needs to challenge them, even if he's the rookie. He doesn't (and shouldn't) be a total asshole about it but just doing whatever people tell him, won't cut it longterm.

It applies to this shoot, other PR movies but also which movies to do. Who told him to do TLO eg? Did he really want that and thought it was a good idea? Footloose showed that going against everyone else, was a good thing which everyone in the biz applauded and it turned out to be a respected move. I'm curious if TLO was his decison or someone else?
