Relax, it’s just a camera!

How would you describe your comfort level in front of a camera on a scale of 1-10? Ten means that you can’t get out of bed in the morning quick enough to be in front of the camera and strike a pose. You absolutely love this experience and it makes you feel amazing. One on the other hand means that as soon as you see a camera you run as fast as you can. Hiding is your first instinct as you cringe at the thought of having your picture taken.

Watching a potter work makes for a fascinating lifestyle branding session

Posted Posted in Business Photography, Lifestyle Photography, Personal Branding


Have you ever had the chance to watch a potter at work? As soon as Karen touched the clay I could see her demeanor change. A light went on in her eyes, her fingers came to life as they touched and formed and smoothed the clay into shape. You could just feel that Karen loves working the clay. That to me is what personal branding photography is all about. It is way more than a basic headshot or product image. Getting to the core of your business and telling your story from the heart is what makes these images so powerful.
