Hi all. I've been shooting cross country and track & field the last few years of our local D1 High School. I've mostly been shooting for our local paper. Last fall I was asked by the local AD to shoot a couple of his middle school games. I gave him a CD with a bunch of images. I told him he could do what he wanted with them as long as he did not give them to parents. A lot of them ended up in the yearbook. To be honest, they were mediocre at best - it was the first time I took pictures at a FB game since the late 70's - glad my name wasn't on them.... :smile: Anyway, I emailed him a few weeks ago and told him I would like to cover his Friday night varsity FB games for the paper. Even though I know I can get on the field, out of courtesy, I asked him for permission. He responded and asked if I would cover his High School games this fall as well as middle school games. We have several middle schools. He asked me to stop by to discuss. I'm happy to do so, however, I don't want to do it for free. Our town (burb West of Cleveland) is a typical mid western town with lots of unemployed blue collar/white collar workers. $5 4x6's, $6 5x7's, $9 8x10's and so on don't sell too well... I learned my lesson. This past Spring the person who runs the girls track program for the middles schools asked me to go to some meets, get shots of every girl and she would buy them. I spent lots of my time going to the meets, PP'ing several hundred shots, and (being the nice guy that I am) gave her 65 shots at a buck-a-piece. The idea was she was going to direct the parents to my site to buy copies. I got lots of hits but no sales. I'm not a pro but at the same time my time has value and I can't give it away. So what are some thoughts, suggestions, and strategies to think about in regards to talking with this AD? Looking for some advice from you pro's! Thanks.
