As the founder of Gooseberry Studios, I’ve photographed hundreds of people over the years and a common comment I hear time and time (and time) again from individuals from all walks of life is that they don’t like how they look on camera. They see every minute ‘flaw.’ They focus on their insecurities. They have trouble facing the face that they present day in and day out to the world.
