    I’m horrifically unphotogenic, so it wouldn’t bother me in the slightest. I don’t think it’s a rude thing to say, but I guess it might depend on tone or something.

    Yes it would bother me!  Were you blinking in pictures or looking the wrong way? She probably means you are prettier in real life than in the pictures she was looking at!

    No, I don’t think that’s rude. Some people really aren’t photogenic, and sometimes, on bad days, I’m definitely look like crap in all photos taken. Then there are days when I look freakin awesome. I wouldn’t feel bad if someone told me that. It’s not like she’s saying “you’re ugly.”

    It might and it might not, but it would really depend.  To me, unphotogenic COULD be a compliment in that she could be saying you’re so pretty, but it’s just not captured on film.

    My grandmother is a lovely woman and she has aged well, but she does not photograph well at all. Even if she was laughing just before the picture was taken, she’ll come out looking drunk, high, angry, asleep, startled, etc. It’s become something of a family joke. 

    So, no, that wouldn’t really bother me much.

    Honestly, I have only ever had one or two people in my entire career that were difficult to shoot, but even so, it was still fine with a lot of coaching and being able to relax and have fun.  I just think lots of times it’s very awkward/uncomfortable for some people.  If you are one of those people, it is well worth the money to hire a professional who makes you feel comfortable and relaxed.  If they are at all good a photography, and they have a warm personality that you feel good with, you will be fine. 

    PS.  Some people have no tact.  Ugh.  I’d rather be called ‘unphotogenic’ than rude.

    Yeah, it would bother me. Even if I suspected that it wasn’t true, it would bother me. It’s just such an unneccessary comment. I mean, if you’re applying at a modelling agency, and you’re not photogenic, they should and will tell you so. However – In no other life situation is such a statement required.
