Make Money With Your Photography

Do you have a nice yard? My best studio is my backyard. I shoot pets, seniors, families, children playing all in my “Studio Yard”. I also take the client inside to my indoors studio. But, the outdoor natural colors are incrediable in photographs. Check out the video below. NOTE: All of my photographs are crystal clear, sometimes the transfer in this blog is not as clear as it really is....

Making Money with Photos

Everyday photos can be made ~ Available for sale! Traveling can produce sales in ways you never imagined! The tour guild requested some photos of his lecture. An Artist requested some photos I took of her Art History talk. Travel with an entire Museum tour group, shoot the trip for free and then sell the photos back. Your work should sell it’s self, meaning you take what you think would be of interest to people not just what you like. Being a successful Photographer is catering to clients desires not your own desires. You can add your style, but to make money with your camera you need to take what your client...

Making Money With Your Camera

Making Money With Your Camera

The month of July can be your most productive month, you should have a full schedule.  You will be hearing all about other families having their portraits taken but you don’t seem to be on that band wagon yet. Problem is, you must spend money to make money. I send out postcards on a regular basis starting in March. The postcards are cheep, it’s the postage that will kill you! The e-mail thing has to be people that have contacted you. Apparently, third party emails are not legal. Who knows if it is enforced. People can simply delete your emails, but a postcard they read first then throw it away. If they read it a few times they will remember your name in time of need. Add photos to businesses web sites. Sporting Events Senior Portraits Family...

Spring 2015-Shooting Photo Sales

Spring 2015-Shooting Photo Sales

   FAMILY PORTRAITS, SENIOR PORTRAITS, EVENT PORTRAITS   Traditional photography is for futures to see the past. They are what we look back on, to remember… that’s why every event and holiday should be recorded with family, home, office and environmental candid or professional photographs.  That’s what’s left! What could be more fun then photographing a teenager’s senior portrait?  Nice job you have! The students “fresh face look” is great for close ups. Students have so many music and sporting activities, they take you to The Eastman, golf courses, rinks, tennis, basketball courts, soccer, & football fields, on boats, the list goes on and on. There you have the opportunity to have that different look, the idea of where they spend their time.  Without overwhelming the subject the background only needs to be a hint of the location you are at. Of course, the color and geometrics have to come together in harmony, you have to make this ART, not just a family photo they can take that themselves with the help of Uncle Harry! Truth is, timing is everything!! Lucky you to be able to locate yourself on such great playing fields, what a nice day. See, teenagers are...

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 shoot indoors with the wider angel and classic outdoor with the 80mm. This young boy’s senior portrait shows why you need a flash even outdoors to light up the faces.  This is dull. When shooting a couple or single person remember to shoot them a bit back… less close up. You can always bring the photo closer, but rarely can you crop to to put the subject back.  Also…staying back makes the customer like themselves better.  Less imperfections are visible.  This still needs to be forward…but with room to crop. Always leave enough room at the top of the subject’s...
