Philippe -  I agree totally.  That is the hardest part of this kind 
of photography.  You have to get what the agency needs but you see so 
many photo opportunities that you could come back and spend more time 
with on your on.  I've been very fortunate to be able to go ahead of 
most of my groups and spend a week photographing by myself.  I love 
doing that.  The photography of situations that are important for the 
group can be very stressful.  You did a wonderful job and I know they 
are very happy. I hope you do get to go back on your own.  It's such 
a wonderful experience to shoot what you want and not necessarily 
what is required.
