Last month I finally got around to creating a Pro Smugmug account. I really didn't know what to expect with regard to sales, but I doubted that I'd ever sell the first shot. Just for kicks, I decided to shoot a couple softball games and a couple baseball games. Two days ago, I got an email from a parent asking if I would print some of the shots on the site for her. (I had only handed out a couple business cards, so I didn't even realize that anyone knew about the site.) I told her that she could order prints directly from the site. She emailed me back and told me that she would definitely think about it. I decided to take one of the shots of her kid and desaturate everything around her. I posted the shot, and emailed her about it. Here's the shot... Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) She loved it. Today, I recieved an email from Smugmug informing me that 5 photos have sold. I also had emails from 2 other parents requesting information and ordering directions. With a little luck and a bit of work, the site just might pay for itself. I just hope the prints turn out well. Positive word of mouth goes a long way in small towns.
