#81: Why photographers should discover their Enneagram type with Ellie McKinney
Welcome to a brand new series (yay!) of Shoot Edit Chat Repeat, the podcast for people photographers. Hosted by two leading UK portrait photographers, Vicki Knights & Eddie Judd.
This week we chat to wedding photographer & educator Ellie McKinney about all things Enneagram. Ellie uses Enneagram in her mentoring and her business, and we wanted to find out from her what it can add to our own businesses.
Do you know your Enneagram type? It’s a great tool to use not only in your business, but in your life.
Knowing your Enneagram doesn’t put you in a rigid box. It helps you to become more self-aware and have a better understanding of those around you and how your clients perceive you.
Here is the most accurate free Enneagram test that Ellie recommends.
But she does recommend investing the $12 to get the official Enneagram test done here.
You can check out Ellie’s work and education here.
We’d love to hear what Enneagram type you are and if you felt it sounds like you! If you join us as a patron, for just $5 a month, you’ll get access to the extra questions we put to Ellie where she gives us a rundown of each Enneagram type.
