Ep 44 – Corey Poirier – Finding Your Voice

Photogs! We are the ring leaders of the shoot and it's up to us to dictate the energy, the enthusiasm, and make it a fun day for our clients. But if you just hide behind the camera, without putting on a 'performance', you'll never make your clients feel comfortable and the photos will show it. I talk with Corey Poirier about being a performer in your photo session. We discuss overcoming your fear of public speaking, how you can turn your passion into a business, and understanding what you like doing in your business and what jobs you can outsource.
