Your opinion

10 posts in this topic

I have just posted in the womens forum about leaving my job blah blah blah and my daughter wants the two of us to do portraits together only there is a catch (a darker side of Brittney)and I think it will really draw in the younger generation of customers. I have been really considering photography (especially since my hubby gave the go ahead) I've posted some of my daughters work she uses both make up and photoshop and I have many many many digital backgrounds to add to them. I would like your opinion as to weather or not you think this could work. Remember down here there are some really creepy people.

DeeDee, no reason why it couldn't be a workable niche within portrait photography.

There are "creepy" people everywhere, but the fact that you live in a well populated area, with major cities not that far away (Florida isn't a large state) means that you'll have a much larger customer base to draw on. That will be important, because the number of people who want such portraits taken probably will be a fairly small percentage of the population.

I figured they would be around the ages of 17-22. She doesnt want to focus on just creepy things, she does a great job with makeup her friends all come to her for prom, ect. So she wants to do the make up for glamour shots mostly.

I hear ya on FL being well populated. Maybe its the fact that were all so close together that it seems there are far more creepy people then there really are.

Cant forget all the seniors here from up north grin

I think it could work, but like any business it's all going to depend on how much and how well you market the business. You may want to hire someone, or maybe take some marketing classes yourself to help get you going.

Sounds like you've got a good support network, DeeDee. And I think you'll be much more likely to succeed if the "creepy" portraits are merely one aspect of your photography business.

I envy you Dee Dee. I've always wanted to go into business for myself but haven't found anything that I feel would make it in my area. Good Luck to you. We'll all be pulling or you!

    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942    
    • Nick, so what are the top schemes the left plans to conjure up for impeachment?
    • Go Pats. They need one for the thumb.
    • And I am sure it will be a waste of server space You do understand that you just defined the meaning of the word conjecture don't you?     But there is conjecture so you have that  The only thing odd is that you are falling for the same type of fake news the Birthers fell for during the Obama years. Don't you understand you are quickly becoming the JV of libertopia?    Well, If you feel compelled then go ahead and forward your research to the proper authorities so they have a better chance at putting together the evidence to prosecute him because apparently without your insight they are not able to connect the proverbial dots. 
    • The dnc had russian propaganda that the russians hacked and released? Guess they provided the transparency the left is always so concerned about.
    • It's just a compilation of sources done on a public google drive. Pasting makes it searchable on this site.   https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzLcl2gcA6O_SWN3WWM4WTlMZ2M/view
