| p.1 #1 · Best way to sell for multiple football games |
Hello, I'll be shooting Multiple Young Childrens Football games tomm.
Minimum of 4-6 Games from 8AM-5PM.
My Co-Worker is a Coach and brought to my attention that they don't have a photographer.
They had one last year, and she charged $10 a cd of photos. She roughly made $3,000 cash
in one day. She wasn't a photographer, Was just taking photos of her kid and all the parents decided to pay her to take pics of all the kids. The pics werent too good.
She won't be doing this and I find this to be a great oppertunity for me to make some money
and THEY came to me.... [U]Since it's the last day of games for this year.[/U]
I shoot Canon 5D and I'll have a 400mm 5.6 and a 70-200 f/4 so I know they will be happy. Also have my canon 85 1.8 I might get quick portraits of each kid somewhere.... I'm there, Might as well. Potential profit.
My question is, With this large amount of people I need a good way to selling photos without getting lost....
I have the Pro Smugmug account. So I have that to my advantage.
my website is [url]www.periutphotography.com[/url]
They told me if I made a flyer, they would hand them out to parents.
My thinking was $10 for Unlimited Photo Downloads of Parents Child from my website if Cash Paid that day.
And $5 a photo download for those who don't pay which would be paid through smugmug.
They would Provide me with their Name, Email, Team and Jersey #
I would Email them a Coupon Code Allowing them to download the Photos of their child.
While, doing this correctly would probably take forever, I could just email them all the same coupon code and giving access to the album. But the way I worded it, sounds secure so most parents might just stick to their own kids.
As of right now it seems to be the easiest form of easily controling and taking care of this.
Flyer would say something like this

Professional Youth Football photos
Unlimited Hi-Res Downloads of your child $10 If paid in cash today.
Paying today gives your child Photo Priority
Single Hi-Res Downloads available after event at $5 Per photo
blah blah blah.
My Wife (as of last Saturday) said she could set up a small table, and handle the people filling out the form and paying.
So Everyone would be directed to her, and I would just get the team and jersey #s to be sure to snap a few shots of.
Now of course I thought, Well one parent will pay and the rest will share,
But the coach ( my co worker ) said he thought so too, BUT that it was oppisite and tons and tons of parents just paid cash that day.
Honestly, If I made $800 I'd be incredibly happy to the core. Hell, My two week Full Time pay check as a firefighter was $850.... Yeah....
I don't however have custom bussiness shirt to wear or anything. Wish I did....
