Ep.21 On Mentoring And Keeping Calm
It’s been a busy week here with portrait shoots (both family and commercial) and a wedding thrown in for good measure! But it’s not all been work, it’s also been our local Summer Beer Festival which is a glorious celebration of all things summer with some ale, cider, Pimms, gin and laughter for good measure: plus it was the World Cup with England playing Sweden so it was always going to be a lively affair!
And it’s the football that set me thinking about coaching (or as we, in the photography fraternity prefer to call it: mentoring) – it’s importance and it’s benefits.
This week also saw one of our shoots rearranged on the fly and I talk a little about the psychology of dealing with a dramatic change in the schedule while still (somehow) satisfying the brief. All in all, a busy week!
