I Have Another Great Idea!
Aug 4, 2012

Do "event photography" street style!

Here's the concept:

Put on your photo vest. Strap on the the dil...oh wait, that's another concept...strap on your camera gear. Head out to a touristy spot. i.e. if you live in San Francisco, head to Pier39, etcetera.

The trick here is to "look" like a real professional photographer, even if you play one in real life. Bring lots of business cards.

Inevitably, the tourists loitering about will ask about your gear. Many tourists are keenly interested in cameras for some reason. When you are engaged this way...offer to take photos of the tourists. Tell them you are on "assignment" but would be happy to take their photos. After you do the old click click, hand them business card and tell them that when they get back to Germany or Denmark to check out your website whyby they could order prints.

On parting, do the hang ten sign against the side of the head and mouths the words "Call me. Maybe."

Tada! Free money.

You're welcome.
