Things I’ve noticed with my hair:
No (island) vacation this year so I dug up some photos from the past. Syros, Kyklades.
Sometimes it amuses me when customers try to intimidate me.
I guess that since I’m a young girl I should go ahead and give in so they can walk all over me. Let me tell ya, it won’t work and I know I am in control of the situation since I’ve played that game before. Plenty of times actually, I’ve been a pawnbroker for 4 years.
My co-workers and I occasionally wonder why I get the bully tactic used on me when they normally never do. Of course the same customers giving me grief will do whatever they can to suck up to my co-workers. My manager laughs because he knows I will not be fazed by such childish antics.
I’ve never yelled, cursed, or laughed in their faces and I still treat them like the other normal customers. Being able to maintain composure is part of how I take control over their immature behavior. Besides I’m not much of a reactive person that I’ll go off on somebody, ain’t part of my nature. That doesn’t mean I will kowtow just because someone came in with their grouchy “I’m totally intimidating” pants on.
The end result is those, few, customers making fools of themselves in public and they will never get what they want from me.
As photographers, it’s important we read between the lines and get past what someone is saying and understand, really understand, the true meaning. It’s not always easy, as we have to hear beyond the words and get to the heart of the matter.
Luckily, you have me to guide you. And part of that guidance is the brand new “Photographers Translation Chart.” Some of the most commonly used phrases explained and translated so that anyone can understand them.
(Note: According to my own unscientific research, the translator is accurate 91.3% of the time.)
I found an awesome use for that free mag holder from #remora It worked out great when I mowed the lawn and didn’t have any pockets in my shorts. #freebies #holsters #guns #notreally
