Hi, I have been considering shooting HS Sports for Maxpreps or similar in an attempt to make some supplemental money off my photography... FYI, if you shoot for Maxpreps (I'm already approved and have one daytime game published), and parents buy the pictures, you get 100% of the image sales ($8-30 per image depending on resolution). If the pictures are published in media (they are owned by CBS), you get ~50% of the royalty. I'd like to make at least $20/hour (shooting+PP time) in the short term, and quite a bit more in the long term. Discuss: 1. Potential income (per game day/night). Assume school frequently gets into regional finals for multiple sports but does not often progress past round 1. 2. Potential income by sport (football vs LaX vs baseball vs ...) I realize HS FB season is over now; LaX is starting up but I've had trouble in the past getting the ball sharp at night. 3. Maxpreps benefits & polices. e.g. a. flash required at night or indoors b. very strong emphasis on sharp photos, must include faces. Motion blur strongly discouraged. Very tight crops required. Basically they strongly prefer portraits in the field over action shots. c. annoying resolution and crop requirements (all photos must be exactly 3000x2216 (or 2216x3000)) d. press passes, etc. 4. fast workflow (the exact resolution requirement is painful) 5. other related income opportunities? Personally, I don't shoot portraits, so I have no interest in picking up clients while at the games (though I probably would refer people to someone else if they did ask). But discussion is welcome. The local paper does sometimes print submitted photos, but only sometimes do they give credit (I'm not sure if that's the submitter's choice), and I doubt they pay. For the record, no one else is already shooting the home games of the HS near me for Maxpreps. A local newspaper photographer/sports editor does shoot some of this HS' games for the paper, but rarely posts them to Maxpreps. However, he does post many pics from another HS to Maxpreps. Anyways, I stay out of his way when I do see him as I don't want to interfere with his primary sources of income (the paper and/or Maxpreps), and I'm planning to ask him if he's shooting these games for Maxpreps.
