What would you do if someone sent you a link to an online forum about YOU and then you got on and read the positive and the negative talk about your Photography. So strange Honestly liberating to say the least the more I read the more I was amazed by the stories people construct off your website. This is so cool this is the same thing your clients do when they see your website for the first time. How wonderful to hear a very honest insight into the reaction of your work. I got a little defensive here and there cried with laughter on another but mostly was fascinated.

What really intrigued me was the discussion on BEFORE & AFTER which as you know I don’t agree with and my blog states this constantly if you take a photo of a woman straight out of bed and then apply hair and makeup then obviously she will look different, but if I don’t show before and after people think I shoot models and the ‘realness’ of the before and after are great for my clients. I am Humbled that people are discussing me and it’s good because if you can have your work publicly reviewed and not want to jump over a bridge thats ok.
At the end of the day when you get home and wash away your face and remove your fake lashes, put up your hair extensions remove your push up bra wash off your fake tan and take off the pretty lingerie and the shoes that give you another 5 inches, and moisturise your shaved legs you are a REAL woman inside and out pretty packaging or not, and call it pop culture or society we support a multi billion dollar industry called BEAUTY hmmmm. All in all a very positive experience I like that I even caused a stir. I love what I do, my clients love it and I’m proud of myself my business and my brand, I am not ashamed anymore I will say it out loud I will stand up and SHOUT . . . I AM SUE BRYCE AND I AM A ‘GLAMOUR PHOTOGRAPHER’ ha ha ha shut up and sit down.
Another shoot from this week from Before to After . . . enjoy. PS She’s beautiful before she’s beautiful after but no matter how beautiful you are nobody wakes up in Hair & Makeup & reflected light. POW
