| p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Asked to be official HS Photog - Need advice |
I have been asked to become the official, and only, photographer for a local high school (came abut through a LL basebal tourney I shot a couple weeks ago). 12 games starting in 2 weeks plus team and individuals. The team is pretty loaded this year and expectations are very high.
All sounds good, but I am questioning a couples things:
1) Gear is 7d x 2, Sigma 17-50, Sigma 50-150 and Sigma 120-300 (all OS and 2.8). I also have a 1.4x and 580exII. While I think I am up-to-par for the gear, would be nice if someone could verify it for me or make suggestions.
2) The football team has a dedicated website - it's where all the parents go for info on practice schedules, game schedules, fund raisers and so on. The organizer wants me to present him with a weekly disc of images (all watermarked) and they would be uploaded to the website. To purchase, parents would be directed to my website and all monies would go to me. Entrance to the games would be covered as would drinks, but no upfront pay. I am a little worried about this as it means for several weeks I am away from the family on Friday night (although, I guess they could go to the games since my daughter will eventually be going there).
For you guys that do this, am I up to par gear-wise and have you found that your efforts pay off at the end of the year? Would you give me some tips on pricing or PM me how you handle pricing (personal website through SmugMug so printing wouldn't be through me)?
