shooting event photos on spec, anyone do it?
Apr 16, 2012

I'm sure this has been discussed before here, and if anyone can point me to a thread that would be great.

First off I shot professionally for 25+ years till 2008 when family care forced me to take a hiatus to focus on being a caregiver to my father. I did extremely well for many years.

I am considering shooting non organized events, such as candids at ball games, candids at motorcycle rallies Bikers with bikes", and other "open" events, where there is not a hired gun to shoot and print on the spot.

My plan is to shoot, hand them a card with the website on it where they can order prints, digital files, etc.of the photo I just shot "for free". The website will be a homepage off sugmug, so they "look for free" and order if they wish.
I am sure this has been done, anyone have any experience or suggestions?

Thanks
