WHAT MOTIVATES PEOPLE TO HAVE PHOTOS OF THEM

PREVIOUS / NEXT

PHOTOGRAPHY by KRISS on 16 march 2016

Photography is about feeling good about yourself.
In most cases, clients either male or female finally decide to treat themselves to a private photoshoot in a period of doubt of their image or when they finally feel they have accepted it.
In either case, it always has something to do with their own perception of their looks and the reality that a camera and professional eye will deliver them.

So our job I guess is to make the magic happen, help people discover their bodies through another eye, and while doing so, help them get the confidence they need.

I have encountered many people suffering from low self esteem or simply seeking attention.


Most of younger clients, boys and girls equals, come to us to consolidate and verify that they look gorgeous.
I am exaggerating a bit but actually not so much.
They usually are clients who have been working a lot on their young and toned bodies and just want to make sure, beyond the daily selfies and hundreds of likes that they look that good and that people will notice it on their social medias.
A few times I met young people who were only interested in having the photos for themselves, and I didn’t see them published on their networks afterwards.
But the vast majority of 20 to 25 years old get a photoshoot with a pro for fun and ego boost.

This is not a bad thing but what happens when the body ages while the spirits remain the same ?

Then you get clients between 40 and 50 years old who either lack self confidence in their image and want to see if a photoshoot can change that or those who have come to terms with adulthood changes and want to prove to themselves they are perfectly fine with their body which is still beautiful with its flaws.

We work with all types of clients and we get all types of queries even weird ones sometimes (perhaps another post).

The couple of photos I have chosen to illustrate this article were realized with a 40 something woman who wanted to know what their tattoos really looked like.
She said she saw them everyday in the mirror but never really realized what other eyes than hers could see.
Now I guess she knows and it was a very nice experience as is it always with people who put their trust in us and strip down to the simplest apparel, shy or extravagant, and let us realize these intimate shots of them that they never dared doing before.

The shots are posted raw and I apologize for the dirtiness of my black background.
