Here we are, almost two months into 2017. OMG time flies when you’re having fun! I hope you’re having fun? And how are you doing with your goals for this year? I’m not sure about you, but one of my objectives is to expand the reach of my business. This includes sharing plenty of photos and videos, because regardless of where and how we promote our companies or careers, compelling visual content constitutes a critical piece.

If this is something that you’re considering, then today’s 2 minute vlog is for you, sharing some quick ideas to help you prepare – mentally and physically – for your next photo or video shoot. This is the penultimate excerpt from my most recent in-studio confidence on camera workshop. Browse my blog to view the previous six videos, and stay tuned for the final one, which explores a particularly significant topic, namely your living visual legacy.

For more in-depth tips to help you prepare for your shoots, here are links to 3 more of my videos, each covering a key aspect of preparation: 5 Ways to Prep for Your Shoot, How to Get into the Mood for Your Shoot and Rock That Camera Visualization. In the meantime, I’d love to learn about your favourite ways to prepare for a shoot! Please share a comment below to let me know, and perhaps spark ideas for other readers too. You’re also welcome to contact me with any questions about photo or video shoots. I’d love to connect with you.
