Do you consider yourself unphotogenic? If so, you’re far from alone! I lost count long ago of how many people have told me that, literally apologizing as they stepped in front of my camera. This includes gorgeous, successful, accomplished and otherwise profoundly confident people, who you would least expect to be camera shy.
The good news is that we can all shine on camera and have consistently stunning photos and videos to promote our companies or careers. This is totally possible for you too, and well within reach once you master a few key concepts. If you’ve followed my posts for a while, you’ll know that I share plenty of insight and ideas to help you with this, so stay tuned for more. In the meantime, here are some thoughts to help shift your paradigm:
Nervous is Normal
It’s perfectly natural to be nervous for a shoot, especially if you’ve had disappointing experiences in the past. Photo and video shoots are collaborative, creative processes, which means venturing into the unknown. This can be scary and exhilarating at the same time. It can also swing open the door for a quantum leap into your genius zone.
Time to Shine
This is a place of pure joy, success and fulfillment. If the thought of being in your genius zone lights you up, then the fastest way to get there is to have faith in your inner nudge and take action now. Trust me, it’s worth it. Remember, as professional photographers and videographers, we’re here to help you shine, and you can!
