Beginner Photographer Pay for School Events
by Amy Marin
(Hackettstown, NJ, United States)
Hello! My name is Amy. I'm a senior in High School and last winter is where my passion for photography began.
Couple days ago, I got the idea of creating a video and photo montage for my graduating class. It's a surprise. I've been learning by watching videos on youtube and trying new techniques.
So I'm good to go on that part, the only thing that I need help with is that I will be going to all the events and as many of the home games to take photos and videos. I mentioned this idea to my older sister (photography doesn't interest her but money does when it comes to things like this.)
Basically, she just told me that I should talk to the principal about it and see if I can get paid by doing these things since I will be sacrificing a lot of my time to be able to finish this project of mine. It's my goal to make it as amazing as I can.
My friends know that I am a photographer and they all love my work. So they also want me to take personal photos of them and I know I shouldn't do it for free so I told them that I would give them an estimate but since I'm new with this pricing area, I'm not sure where to start off.
Thank you for your time!
