Visual Aids #003: This holiday season, take stock

200611bc_bglenn When nothing seems to be going right, it’s easy to lose your perspective. When you’re stressed out, says Burnie Glenn, CPP, let yourself float for awhile. You might not be a world-famous photographer, but remind yourself that what you do is important to the people you photograph, Glenn says. “Sometimes it takes a blow to the head with a celestial two-by-four to get the message that it’s time to move on and find something better.” It’s a matter of attitude and faith in yourself, he adds. “The Titanic was built by professionals; Noah’s ark was built by amateurs.”

Burnie Glenn, a past president of the Dallas Professional Photographers Association, and his wife, Marcia, own and operate Glenn’s Photo Studio, specializing in weddings and portraits, in Dallas, Texas.
