Thread: 2 day event on Schools and Nursery Photography

  1. #1

    2 day event on Schools and Nursery Photography




    Dates to be confirmed. March 7th/8th provisional.

    I have had many PMs over last few months asking about doing another 2 day event.
    I have been asked about doing 1 day or even going around the country to make it easier for folk to attend. I have looked at this and the 1 day is not enough. I always plan on having 4 child models and a full range of kit for you as photographers to shoot all styles including Chroma key to away and use as port of your portfolio. Venues are not bad in price but the model hire goes through the roof. min of 2 hours and expenses extra can make it very expensive.

    1 day is for going through what school wants want, what the photographer can expect and a half day shooting with kids that have been briefed to be right pain in the butt. we have 4 regulars that do a half day at half the normal rate and a bag of chips. so there would be no benefit financially in travel costs and 2 nights in Premier inn or pay agency fees.

    This will be the last 2 day event for at least 18 months if not more.

    Thought i'd also mention it's not just about doing Schools for your self. You can just learn and get contact details of all the the Major National firms that take on freelance photographers.
    A great way to fill in the diary when you are shooting. Cash for Shoot and Burn.

    Hi Paul, Is there anything you want covered?

    We have a new software company that is 16 times cheaper than Halse and much better and cheaper than the Ozzie and American softwares.

    A few new lights to try out. Would not want you to be covering old ground with other stuff we talk about.

    If we can get more than 10 I see to getting the costs down a bit from 200 for the 2 days. As courses go that is still a very good price.

    You will have child models for portfolio building covering multi pose and Chroma key for schools. You will also take away a binder of lighting and build large groups. Details of Prolabs and software suppliers.
