Wow. I can't believe that ten years ago today, this company officially started.
I'm currently sitting here at our downtown studio getting ready to go to an awesome celebratory dinner with my team at FLAME, a great hibachi grill in midtown. But as I was getting ready, I decided it would make sense to capture this moment by writing a blog post so I could look back and see where I've been, what I've done, and where I hope to go.
One of the biggest questions we get is how to look more confident on camera. Some people worry that their eyes look too wide, others that their expression looks unnatural, and still others (especially people who look young) that they won’t project the confidence to enable people to take them seriously in their line of work.
The goal with this article is to hopefully show you that no matter how uncomfortable you normally are on-camera normally, a few tricks can help you go from looking worried, anxious, and fearful to relaxed, happy, and confident! I truly believe that everyone is much more photogenic than they think!
There are two primary things to keep in mind regarding confidence:
As a headshot photographer, I hear the same thing almost every day: "I'm going to be a really difficult subject because I'm not photogenic at all."
And then I'll say, "No, don't worry about that!"
And the response is almost always the same...
"No, but I'm REALLY not photogenic."
Fortunately my team and I have worked with enough people and learned enough about angles, expression, and lighting that we're able to work with almost anyone and help them find a photo of themselves that they'll love. I decided to compile this list of 5 reasons that prove you're actually more photogenic than you think you are in order to help you see yourself in a whole new light (no pun intended).
