    I just fumbled through a round of school photos for a homeschool academy in the fall. I would LOVE to get some of the get schooled info to help me do better in the spring. Thanks.

    wow, this is fantastic, I’ve always wanted to add this to my genre and this would be a great help.

    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!

    Oh would love to know the ins and outs on getting into school portraiture, especially school portraits with style. very excited, thanks so much!

    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!!

    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.

  12. January 20, 2010 at 9:27 am —

    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.

  13. January 20, 2010 at 9:26 am —

    oh my goodness! i want to win so bad…i was so inspired by courtney’s school post yesterday…would love this!!

    i was just telling a photographer friend how great the ‘get schooled’ guest post was yesterday. this giveaway is so perfect – i am gearing up to do a second shoot at my daughter’s preschool next term and this information would be so fantastic! i am particularly interested in seeing the ‘it’s picture day!’ book template. =)

  15. January 20, 2010 at 9:21 am —

    These products look amazing! I am starting a new business and this would be a fun segment to work with!!

    I am just starting out and want to start on the right foot. With such a high new business failure rate, I feel that learning from people that have established business plans and ideas would give me an edge up.

  19. January 20, 2010 at 9:12 am —

    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 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!
