But with exhibits of your Washington DC event photographers, you are there by “invitation” – or at least that’s what most people believe to be the case.

Sometimes photographs are not enough to tell the whole story. Very old antique family pictures with no written records inspire us to wonder who these people were, how they lived, what they felt, and what was important to them.

That makes the image all the more important in the lives of those who possess it.
Benefit Race Photos. I photographed pre-race, race course, finish line and awards for a local race that benefited the agency in #4 above. I posted the images for sale on my gallery and shared the revenues with the agency. The images were also released to the nonprofit for them to use in event photography marketing and promotion. This also led to getting more sports work for another sporting event, which will result in additional visibility and revenue.

Consider the future potential of your niche. Photography is always changing and it can take a lot to keep up with the pace. Are you willing to give what it takes in your niche. People will always expect more and if you are able to give it it them you will a solid photography business. As always you will need to take action on the photography information that you read to make a difference.
