Lately I have been coming across a lot of people that for sure would benefit from implementing a little bit of photography 101 into their life. Photography 101 as in “know your sport“. In photography that means exactly what it sounds like. If you don’t know football you either learn it or you just don’t shoot it. It’s as simple as that.
In everyday life it’s the exact same thing. If you don’t know marketing just don’t do it and so on. However, in this modern time of age everybody seem to believe quick short cuts is the – only – way forward. I really wish they were but in all honestly do short cuts like ever work out the way they were planned to?
In my profession I watch people fill up their memory cards and just empty them online in the aim to make a quick buck. Does it work? Most probably yes, at least in the short run. Is it a good business plan. Not so much. Sooner or later people will see through the lack of quality and get fed up with your work.
And call me a snob but personally I’d go for quality every day of the week. Which leads me to my broken Louis Vuitton zipper.
The other week I realised I could see my phone screen through the zipper in one of my Louis Vuitton bags. Which in all fairness have been around for quite some time, but what a drama. Now it has to be exchanged and updated and I’m just like “woaw this will cost me a lot of extra time”. Until I realised Louis Vuitton have actually set up camp in the revamped Bijenkorf in Rotterdam. How genius is that?
Or so I thought.
I bet those bitches working there would not even let me and my friend who visited from Brussels into the store. In all the store just felt extremely unfriendly. Reminding me strongly about IKEA Delft where they round up customers like cattle by the check out points!
And here’s the thing. If you judge a book by its cover or you have zero people skills, please don’t work with customer service. It’s as simple as that.
Me and my broken hand bag on the other hand are now planning for a road trip straight to the mother ship in Paris. Cause who wouldn’t want to go to Paris like any day of the week 😀
