One of my favorite and core creative practice is taking my own Self-Magic-Portraits.
I am doing this for more than one reason. In fact, there are 10 reasons why to do it!
Hi, this is Monicka, from monickacliosakki.com and I would like to share with you the 10 reasons why you should create Self-Portraits for your business, but…especially for you!
Just do it. At your own time, by yourself, at your won pace, from wherever you are.
2. YOUR APPROVAL
You get to approve them. You keep doing them, taking them, till you are happy!
3. COST EFFECTIVE
It’s cost effective. You don’t need to hire a photographer, you don’t ned to pay subscription, royalty free, take as many as you want!
4. FLEXIBLE + ON DEMAND
No need to limit yourself to one setting or one good hair day.
5. ON BRAND MARKETING
Create your own marketing materials, with your face. It’s so easy to re-brand yourself every time you have a new idea, or you are growing.
6. STOCK UP
You can actually create a bank, a stock of your own images, so then, when something will come up, and you need an image, you just have them, ready! Pick and plug and go!
Ouooo, this one is big!
You will actually have a consistency in your look, between your pictures and your videos. Some times I see these amazing pictures of women with their hair back, and all makeup, all pretty and all done, but then when they are doing their own videos, the levels, the difference is too big.. Sometimes I am not even sure if it’s the same person!
8. PLAY + EXPERIMENT
This is your opportunity, since you are not limited to one set! They different things! Different air, different clothes, different styles, different lighting, different themes. See what calls you. See what looks good on you. See what describes better what you do. And most importantly, what you WANT to do!
9. RE-DISCOVER YOUR SELF (AND BRAND)
Aaaah! Further explore and discover yourself. By doing this practice you’ll be getting in the inside of you. You can actually develop your brand. Let’s say you have a photographer come for an amazing photoshoot: sometimes maybe you wouldn’t even know what to ask for! So this is your opportunity to discover what you are made of and how you want to show.
10. QUALITY TIME WITH SELF
Oh, that’s my favorite one! Quality time with your self! Yea..yea..yea… when was the last time that happened???
It’ much better than reading a book, having a massage or a pedicure… it’s some really fun fun times, it’;s like having drinks with yourself! It’s just…ah! I need to go.. I need to go.. To just be with my Self!
So, now I would like to invite you, yes, yes, yes, to a free challenge event where I will you and show you exactly my techniques, my technical stuff, and also the soft skills that you will need to start creating your own Self-Portraits.
