    These would be extremely helpful in my new business. I think this is a market that is ready for a twist on the traditional school portraits. Thanks!

    I would love to add this aspect to my photography business and I think this would help me start down that road. Very excited to check it out!

    These products would allow me to produce some structure in my marketing materials as well as how I market – especially in areas that are looking for something new and different.

  11. 11

    I am super excited about winning these fantastic guides to help our business move into the boutique school photography market. We have a ton of private schools and home schoolers here and this would so help me to provide for them the type of images those discerning clients demand.

    Marci says:

    Thanks again for another awesome giveaway! This is such a great concept. I can’t tell you how many people complain about the standard school pics (they haven’t changed in 40+ years!) and I am pretty sure our preschool programs in the area do not have a portrait program at all. This concept would also work great for large day care centers. Thanks MCP!!

    We just had a local Charter School approved and my daughter will be attending next year. Before I read the Get Schooled post yesterday I was thinking about emailing the principal to put my photography services on her radar. This would be a perfect addition to my business, I am so excited about the possibility of providing higher quality school photos!

    It’s been suggested by fellow parents that I start doing into school portraiture. With my own children in the local schools, I have contacts that would help me get my foot in the door. This would certainly help by providing a roadmap to successfully accomplish this goal and get the word out in this area which is saturated with schools.

    I’d love to win this awesome contest! School Portraiture is a great way to grow my business, especially at my daughter’s private school – her school portraits are always miserable! I’d love to be able to give parents something they’re PROUD to hang on their walls.

    Angel Pope says:

    I think these products would help my business as I have recently moved to NE Kentucky. What I have observed in this area is that people will not let the economy stop them from spending money on photos of their children. The people here seem to cherish the memories and will give up other “luxury” items before they will pass on purchasing photos. But I’ve also noticed that the quality of photos offered aren’t always the best. I know I didn’t want to buy my own child’s school portraits because they were so posed looking and it just didn’t look like her. I think if I could hone in on the skills that it takes to create quality school photos then I will have cornered this market.
    I’ve recently gone from working outside the home to staying home and am leaning on my photography now as a business rather than just a hobby. That being said, any help I can get without having to invest money is like winning the lottery for me! I don’t want money, just knowledge!!! ;-)

    Melissa Dunne says:

    I definitely believe everything happens for a reason. Last week my friend brought up her kids preschool pictures and how awful they were, so we started talking about me contacting preschools to do thier school pictures and this put the idea in my head. Two days later I read the MCP blog post about the Get Schooled Guide, and the very next day a friend contacted me out of the blue from her preschool that she runs and asked me if I did school pictures! It made the hairs on my head stand up because it was just all laid out right before my eyes! I am so excited about this venture and know that it will be a great way branch out in my photography business. I would love to win these guides, because I definitely need some direction on where to begin! Thanks so much for the contest!

    David Bier says:

    This is perfect timing for me. After seeing the generic rubbish produced by my son’s nursery, I went in a couple of days ago, spoke to the manager…and I am now their photographer for this year! Having some advice on how to make my natural style work in a high volume situation like a nursery would help all the parents get the memories they deserve…and would also help me get my new business off the ground.

    I would love to have these as i love doing preschool pictures and would like to have most of my business doing school portraits. All it takes is a few minutes getting that great picture, parents are happy but more importantly that school picture may be the only picture that child get professionally all year why not make it great. Would love to have new ideas so that I can come back with something a little different each year.

    I think all the products are very great tools!!! I launched my photography business in Sept. 09 and to this day I don’t have a solid client base. I am lucky if I get one person in a 3 month span. I Have tried everything I have learned but still I think I would need something more edgy, new and fresh. The school portraiture guide and marketing kit is something that would benefit me and shape me into the photographer I dream about..

    I have been following you on facebook and your blog for awhile now. I love your blog and all of your wonderful tips. You have had some great contests, but this one is the first one I have entered. I really NEED this kit. I am a beginning photographer and I am very passionate about capturing precious moments for my clients to treasure forever. I, like Courtney have the disadvantage of living in a new place and therefore lack the social networking groups to get my business off the ground. I have considered school portraiture, but I have no idea how to set it all up. I would LOVE to win this set!!! Thank you for the opportunity!

    I’m taking a “Launching Your Photography” business class this semester, working on my photography, and collecting as much as I can about different types of services to offer. The class covers obvious services – weddings and family portraits – but it doesn’t cover the details of offering school pictures. So this might be the perfect reading to supplement my studies!

I love this product! Her ideas and style are so engaging! I would love, love, LOVE to have this complete set and start this arm of my business. THank you so much for doing this contest!

  202. 202

    I am so wanting to get into school photography but didn’t know where to start. There is such a need for it here in my community. Unfortunately they mostly use deathtouch, or a local photographer that has always done it and therefor always doing the same thing. Just like they said, cattle. I am so excited that “Get Schooled” is here to help us out.

    on the spur of the moment today I decided to stop in at one of my favorite kids boutiques for a quick peek and I ran into a woman that I had been thinking about lately….. she and I worked together at IKEA almost 10 years ago and I alway wondered what had to her….. I walked into Dragon Lilies and she was right there… carrying her 4 month old son Chase….. we did the usual…. how are you? how many kids do you have now? what are you up to these days….. funny thing is many of our big answers were similar…. 4 kids each and each stretching our photography creativity…. Caylee is a creative photographer and you can see her lovely portrait work here…. http://cayleesecretanphotography.blogspot.com/2010/01/photobucket.html

    living near a small rural community and having many others nearby I often get asked to take pre-school or sport or dance photos and I am not quite sure how to be most efficient with this…. I think the “Get Schooled” portaiture guides would “guide” me in the right direction!

    After years of disappointing and almost offense school pictures I contacted my daughter’s school last year to begin exactly the type of photography “Get Schooled” is referring to above. I have shot three schools the past two years but would love to expand this aspect of my business.

    I just feel all parents deserve photos that look like their children…

    Hi there! I would love to win because this packet could really help kick start my photography business! And I very much need that PUSH in order to justify quitting my dayjob. My two children go to daycare and their school pictures are just horrible! I hate buying them. But the ideas on the Get schooled Blog are brilliant! I would buy those photos in a heart beat! And feel strongly that most of the other parents would too! If I could pull that off I know that would give me the “push” I need to finally be free of the torture I call an 8-5. Please pick me! Save me from this cubicle!!!

    Just trying to get my business off the ground…still new to the community so I don’t have the contacts all of the local “home grown” photographers do…this package would be a wonderful to help teach me the ropes to school photography so I could have something new to offer the local schools which in turn would then turn into, hopefully, repeat business outside the school…the product looks wonderful! Thanks for being so generous with the contest.

    I truly believe that knowledge is power. More you know and more you will get ahead. As a start-up business, there are so many things I’ve never even thought about as a photographer, therefore I know Get Schooled: School Portraiture products will help me tremendously. I wanna win! :)

    These would be great! I have worked in a special needs preschool for 20 years. Our parents always want “school pictures” of their preschooler. Unfortunately, most school photograhers don’t have the time or experience to “work” with our little ones to get them to respond for a great photo. Most seem to get annoyed when we try to help them out.
    Thanks a bunch!
