You sell your business, Sounds obvious right?
The Biz Photography has been shooting business photography for 17 years and in that time have created a lot of marketing collateral. In those years the amount of times that the business owner has baulked at the opportunity to be photographed in their business continues to astound me.
I won’t even try to go into the psychology behind this, believe me I’ve heard every excuse under the sun. Excuses like I look ugly, I take bad photographs, I look old, I look fat, I have 2,3,4 chins, I don’t smile.. etc I think you get the picture.
Generally I manage to talk people into it by striking up a conversation and getting them to relax. I do this by showing them how they are looking on the back of the camera. Subsequently, by getting them to laugh and generally making them feel happy and good about themselves.
Maybe I’m in the wrong business maybe I should have been a psychologist ?
Come on people have some self confidence! The next time you are taking some photos for your marketing collateral put yourself in the picture and don’t forget to smile, In the end people are going to buy you.
Here’s some business owners getting it done
May your business be awesome
