SLR Digital Cameras 2012

If you have a tight budget, and can gather $500. dollars…sounds like alot to some, but if you’d stop buying certain electronics for just 3 months you’d get this amount and be ready to make MORE money with a very professional camera. Not the best… but close enough for your success. This is the Canon EOS Rebel T3. This does not include a lens.  I advise you to look into  35 mm – 80 mm lens. That way you can...

Start A Photography Business

Just for the record this past week I went with a Judge and her staff to march in a parade.  The Judge was campaiging for a higher office.  I offered my services for free, and simply asked that that they acknowlege me in the credits.  That is free advertizing and again I had a blast, as well as front row seating! (sort of speaking I was in the parade).  It may sound corney, but I was able to get alot of publicity and my name out there. ...

Photography… How To Prepare

Photography…   How To Prepare

Shooting family Portraits Take Great Photos! I know I must shoot around the families’ schedule, I let them pick the time. I prepare them that I start on time. 1. I arrive 10 minutes early. If you arrive before then you are just a nusicence. If you are late you have set a bad image for the family and may never recover. 2.  Set up equipment. Most public parks, musumes, galleries, libraries, etc., will allow you to bring famlies on...

Let’s make Money With Your Camera

What a great opportunity I had during the 2012 St Patrick’s Day parade. I made $1,000. in a short 2 hours.  The colorful costumes worn made picture taking easy.I grouped friends around, shot them, and grabbed their e-mails within 15 seconds. I found that by getting  e-mails quickly, I was able to sell 72 people a photo..(some bought more than one).  I could have sold more customers, but I got tired of working and joined the fun! Buy...

How To Make Easy Money

Now seriously..I highly recommend that you charge for your services, but if you have not developed a serious customer list, than this is one way to start. The way I started.. like I mentioned in an earlier post, shooting the neighbor’s son with his dog and several other area families. But, when I gained some confidence for shooting events, I asked a professional for help, and I asked if I could “tag along”. Well, it was...
