How do you reconcile that with your notion of photographic creativity?
Where do you discern conflict?
If you trawl through my first gallery in the web site, all of the shots were produced by seeing the best moment that existed - or I was quick enough to catch/anticipate within the context of location.
It's simple: you have the girl, you have whatever location you hoped would suit the theme, and then you just do it. The technique, for me, was based on my earlier years/experiences doing fashion: you discover a basic shape and run a set of variations within the setting and when you think you have it covered, you move on to something fresh and run through whatever that sparks off in both your minds - hers and yours, that is. It's why a good model is a prerequisite, and trust me, a lot of clients don't get that, try to cut corners and then you, as photographer, carry the blame for the inevitable disaster. It's a situation into which you walk with eyes wide open; the choice is stark: take the money and run, knowing it is going to end the relationship (most likely outcome) or stand on your pride and refuse, in which case you lose both the money and the client.
The creativity is in the interplay between the two minds. Both minds have to be able to do it, and gel. That's why some good models and photographers always work together beautifully where other mixes of equally talented people never will.
