I have a selling group in fb and I see these people offering to do photoshoots but they refuse to mention what equipment they use, they have no website, they have invested almost nothing but are taking peoples money. After investing a few thousand dollars myself and years teaches myself how to use my cameras and all about photography, I get very little in return other than selling a few prints and shirts in my online stores which only pay me a small percentage, and selling an occasional photo to a magazine or whatnot. I decided I should offer my services, so I have been trying to learn all I can about portrait and wedding photography. It’s hard to get a foot in the door since one needs experince to get clients when you can’t get clients without experience. My gradkids are not willing to be my subjects, but perhaps when they get older they will be more cooperative. I did do a shoot last week and it went pretty good. Most all of the photos turned out well even though it was a dark day. I think next time I would want to use a tripod but I’m happy with the way they came out, and the clients are happy too. .
Please don’t pay these fraudsters to take your family photos, give me a call, I would be thrilled to take photos of your family, kids, weddings or any occasion. all six 22- eight 2 nine 3.
