Now is the time to plan for next year’s business

Hi There!

Are you interested in getting into the school photography market?  While this market can be difficult to break into, I’ve got a little secret on how to successfully get your foot in the door by providing a service that the “big guys” usually don’t bother with.  What is it?  Preschool and Kindergarten graduation portraits!  These are fun to do and easy to sell!

January is the time to begin talking with schools so that they can plan on having you come in to do the pictures in April or May.

I’m currently ordering supplies to stock up on my Little Graudates kits, and need to know how much to plan on ordering.  Want to know more about this highly lucrative business plan?  Click on the image below and feel free to contact me with questions (or simply comment below).  Thanks!

Have You Tried Using The “Zoom Effect?”

Here’s a neat trick that gives you a different effect when taking a picture - it’s called the “zoom effect.”

From the article:

If you want to have a little fun with your digital camera next time you go out with it have a go at experimenting with the zoom effect.

In essence, the zoom effect is a picture that looks like the subject is either moving towards or away from you with motion lines.
