    My local paper started on online youth sports photo gallery. to get it started, they sent some of their photographers to some of the city leagues to get some shots. Since I'm shooting all of the divisions of one of the rural leagues, I contacted the editor in charge. I submitted a pic or two from each division, and they created a seperate gallery for them;

    on Friday, they ran a plug for the youth sports gallery in the printed paper. they used on of my T-Ball pics for it;

    saw his mother at the diamond yesterday morning. needless to say, she was estatic about it. :biggrin:

    which sort of made up for the pain inflicted during the conversation with my nephew's wife, as to why one of her kid's wasn't printed in the paper. :biggrin:

    but, that's another story. :wink:

    Thanks, Lisa.

    Thanks, Gretchen.

    Thanks, Marcos.

    Thank you, Ty.

    Thanks, Gale. yes, I know I didn't get paid for it. but I did it more for the league, than myself. listening to his mother talk about it was worth more than the $25 I would have been paid. :biggrin:

    Thanks, Anthony.

    Not necessarily. Everyone has their own motivation. I'm working on building up a stock portfolio, but I have no interest in charging individuals for photos.
  11. That's pretty cool. Congratulations!!
  12. That second shot is great! Brings me back to my illustrious t-ball career.
