Photography and Connection

Taking the camera in your hand, meeting eye in eye, documenting human life, street life, family life, taking a selfie, watching an old family photo album and telling stories that are behind your photos to your friends or children – all that is CONNECTING – the act of making connections.
Photos make it easier for people to connect. Because when people show their pictures, they open up to each other. A roundtable of photos is a fascinating experience. We will do it during the course “ONE IMAGE – MANY WORDS. Photography in Coaching and Personal Development”. Today, I’m showing a few pictures of me at work – let’s connect. Do Raniszewska

What is important in it for you?
As a coach, you probably want to make the coaching you do stand out as memorable, inspire your clients to authenticity, unblock thoughts and emotions. Photographs make it easier and faster. I’ve been using photos and clients’ snapshots for a couple of years already and I’m always amazed how they are very helpful in enhancing self-reflection and deeper insight, finding new perspectives, giving the voice to intuition, the raise of emotions and lead to engagement, ‘aha’ moments. They also help to break the ice and get out of a rut.

people are like trees, You can tell about yourself through photographs of trees.

You can tell about yourself through photographs of trees.

In October I am on a morning walk in the park every day. I take pictures of trees. The tree gives a sense of rest and security. It inspires me. It symbolizes life, strength, persistence and family. And the silhouettes of trees are like people. They express emotions. This leaning ‘feels’ differently than the soaring, which reaches the sky. Old massive oak raises other sensations and snow-white, slender birch the other. You can tell about yourself through photographs of trees. Man is like a tree, ingrown to the ground and crowned towards the sky. The more grounded it is, the higher it grows. I need roots – values to make the right decisions. I need a trunk – a fracture proof spine. And the entire network of relationships – the branches by which it exists. We are a combination of everything we receive from others and give to others.

Photography in Coaching Course - Inspire Your Clients to Authenticity, Unblock Thoughts & Emotions

Photography in Coaching Course – Inspire Your Clients to Authenticity, Unblock Thoughts & Emotions

Is your professional GOAL to always become A BETTER COACH?

What creative tools and techniques do you use to make the coaching stand out as memorable? What results are possible when you introduce new stimuli into your work? How do you break the ice, get out of a rut, shift perspective and create aha moments?

Look, PHOTOGRAPHY IS THE LANGUAGE OF TODAY. The human brain is engaged by visuals. Research shows that when our brain detects images, dopamine is produced which increases interest and engagement. And photos make it easier for people to communicate and to express thoughts in a free, non-judgmental way. Simply, because it is easier to say something about what you see than about what you can’t see YET. And because they provide metaphors. Photos catalyze coaching communication. But there is another important fact about photos in coaching: In coaching, clients’ snapshots can serve as records of clients’ resources and as ways to better understand the self. Ever since personal camera became widely available, people used it to create records of themselves and their lives in photographs. Personal photographs mirror, materialize and document the experiences of human life: biography, relationships, dreams, accomplishments.

An OPTION that you have to become a better coach is to use photo-based tools and techniques during the coaching sessions.

I’ve been using photos and clients’ snapshots for a couple of years already and I know that they are very helpful in enhancing self-reflection and deeper insight, finding new perspectives, giving the voice to intuition, the raise of emotions and lead to engagement, aha moments.

A unique book on using photos in coaching

Books are a uniquely portable magic. I’m 4 months on Amazon!

A unique book on using photos in coaching“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” Stephen King’s quote. I’m celebrating today because “ONE IMAGE – MANY WORDS” has been 4 months on Amazon by now. I believe that optimism is a foundation of courage and is essential to achievement. But nothing would happen without a dream, a vision, and great support from people involved – and esp. Agnes Monod-Gayraud, Judy Weiser, and Jacek Szczepański. I’m happy and grateful.

You can read about and buy the book on Amazon: LINK 2 THE BOOK ON Amazon

It’s worth!

Enjoy and stay inspired, Dorota Raniszewska 🙂
