Their best customers are always smiling. But that has little to do with the fact that they are basically very cheerful folks. Who wouldn’t be when you are finally on your annual vacation. No, in good times, and in bad times too, such as they are, resort photographers tend to bring out the best in people. Not just resort photographers, mind you, but most professional photographers. It works in their favor.
It is always good for business when you are able to portray people in a positive light. Once the photographic displays are up on people’s walls or published in different media spaces, plenty of other good people get to see it. And they all wonder what the proverbial fuss was all about. Just why are all these nice people smiling so much. What happened to them? Imagine taking that much sought after vacation.
You are somewhere that you only dreamed of being before. And by the time you alone, you and your family, or just you and one special other one, are finally in your dream valley, along an idyllic coastline, in luxurious settings, you are overwhelmed. And exhausted. So much to see. So much to do. It is enough to give you the jitters. How are you expected to keep a steady hand on the trigger in order to capture those fine moments?
Well, you don’t really. You let your professional resort photographer to take over. It is better that way because this way, you get to be in all the pictures. Instead of being behind the lens, trying to get others to smile, you are forced to go behind the scenes. But not while your pro photographer is about. Let him call the shots and see how easily he gets you all to smile.
