Furthermore when taking a picture in front of the mirror I look okay also when looking in mirrors in shops and looking in reflections I believe I look good?

You just literally described me. If others take pics of me, I look hideous. If I take a front facing pic of myself, again, I look hideous. But if I take a pic in front of a mirror, voila. I look decent.
We're just not photogenic :(
People always tell me I look better in person too. Eh. I'll take that as a compliment lol
I guess it's better that way. Some people I've seen look pretty in their pics, but then seeing them in person I'm like "wtf? is this the same person?" Some chicks are fucking good with pics, but look busted in real life.

It's just your impression. I believe that when you're in front of a mirror you can control better your body and facial expressions to take a better picture. You don't have this total control when you're not in front of a mirror. So it gives a different impression.
