Your opinion

Recommended Posts

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!

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
