My older brother is a genius. Seriously. He’s doing his doctorate at Cambridge University and he knows quotes and authors and many other things off by heart.
It’s all quite intimidating – until you get him and his lovely new wife to pose for a couple shoot and realize geniuses (geniusi? :-P) also struggle with those first few minutes in front of a camera. Payback for some of those mean tricks we played on one another as kids?
Just kidding. Well, about the seriously awkward part (a spouse generally helps in making a shoot less awkward). He still is a genius. And we had a blast of a time at Emmanuel College in Cambridge.
