Thoughts For Photographers

Please I implore you . . .


Of course when you're late to your own shoot or you sneeze coffee out ya nose and into the face of your client, then perhaps you ought to be.

But for the love of all things creative, can we stop with the shuffling, head bowing 
"er yeah, I don't know why that's in the folio either" or the 
"it's not my favourite shot but this one person once told me it was ok" 


Trust the Boss as my old tutor used to tell me, whilst jabbing me in the stomach. 
You know deep down that you're doing yourself a disservice.

A happy portfolio makes for a happy photographer!

    1. Ha ha! Yes well you've learnt your lesson.
      in fact just the other day someone said how much they are loving the new work you're producing. :)

  2. You need to show you are in control and a professional. Non creatives often need direction, and if you are shuffling your feet, no matter how good you are, they will lose the faith.

    1. It's not just that, though I do agree, it's the fact that the photographer forgets they are also their own audience.
      They get swept up in worries of "will this win me a job" and seem to discount their own instincts.
      Don't get me wrong they're too close to a lot of the work!
