There are a ton of good photographers out there, and most people don’t know the difference between good and great images. If they are hiring a photographer based only on a review of their images, they will most likely choose the less expensive shooter.

When someone stands awkwardly in front of my camera, I talk them into a natural pose. Some people want to pose themselves. I suggest we try a few shots their way, and then let me direct them for a few more shots when I understand what they’re looking for. This always works, and invariably they choose shots that I posed. I use little tricks, like having a person with a double chin slightly extend their head (“like a turtle” I tell them) to tighten everything up, or I suggest they sit up and slightly tilt toward the camera for a subtle aura of confidence.
