Ok this is what happened. I was asked by my son's highschool if I could take some pictures of the Senior Band Members and also the Drum Majors for the 2008 - 2009. Of course I was hesitatant at first because i was like "No I really don't have time". I was contacted a second time...apparently someone thought I said "Ok sure I have time". At this point I could not say no. I went into this knowing I was not going to make money...this was a like a PRO BONO type of work. This all transpired about a week before school started. So the head band mother sends me an e-mail and said..."If you can be there around 1:00 p.m. on so and so date ... that would be great". I took the shots and send the images to the printer who was doing the program. Well as i was laying in bed i had this idea to send the band mother a collage of the 40 band seniors and also the drum majors. I used the school colors as my back ground. Since the program was going to be in black and white I figured I would send her a low-res image of the color collage. Well my idea had worked and she loved it. She sent me another e-mail asking if she could sent this to all the parents...of course I said sure. Two days later she called and said she was getting lots of calls for orders she wondered if she could just give the parent my phone number and e-mail address. At this point I was thinking "Hell yeah!". Long story short...I sold 40 collages at $25.00 a piece (8x10's). Some of you wondered how you can make money in this business...well it's great if you have children who are in high school who may know kids in band, cheerleading,...etc...parents will buy pictures of their children every single time. Now after this I will put my business card in with the 8x10 and hopefully get more individual seniors that I can shoot. Please feel free and steal my idea...it worked for me.
