Feeling Good!

Today I scheduled a few hours to help a colleague of mine who is working on her Certification Images. While waiting for her to arrive this morning I received a phone call from a lady needing executive portraits (head shot) for the annual report for her company. We went over our calendars and really couldn’t find a date that was good for both of us even looking as far as November. I offered her a time next week but she really wanted to have her hair cut and makeup freshly done for her portrait and that was happening today. Just happened that I could fit her in this afternoon in between appointments and I am so happy I did.

It was wonderful helping a fellow photographer with the requirements for CPP (Certified Professional Photographer) image submission. We looked at her images and then played in the camera room while I taught her how I make the lighting right for my clients and made suggestions to perhaps help her achieve her goals. We had fun! I love being a CPP Liaison and helping other photographers raise their bar. I believe it contributes to our industry, making it stronger and healthier. In conversation I learned  this photographer wants to specialize in corporate head shots. I mentioned that was my next appointment and she asked if she could stay and watch me. Of course I didn’t mind.

It was a wonderful session with a beautiful lady. A professional herself, a Marine Biologist who does research. She was kind enough to allow me to teach while I worked and told me she thought it was intriguing to see how much goes into making a portrait, even one as simple as a “head shot”.  Afterwards we sat together the three of us and selected her images. She got them down to four, although she really only needed one. That thrills me! My client told us that she had never been to a professional before and was amazed at the difference it made.

All in all, I helped a fellow photographer fine tune her skills, I helped a professional lady get exactly what she was looking for and more and I made myself feel good doing what I enjoy doing and doing it well! A successful day, now I will go play with my grandkids!

Do something that makes you feel good today!
