First "pro" photoshoot tonight - I'm nervous. Any advice?
Jan 30, 2013

I'm doing a volunteer photoshoot for an event tonight. It's going to be me shooting people giving 5 minutes talks about various subjects, and doing crowd shots and networking in between. It'll be my first "pro" photoshoot I guess, although I've done a lot of photography already. I'm nervous for some reason.

I have 2 cameras (Alpha A77/80-200mm HS for speaker shots & A700/50mm for portrait & crowd shots), a speedlight, wireless triggers and a light stand, business cards and extra batteries.

As far as networking, I'm not sure what else to say other than introducing myself and asking if they need photo work. Any advice on getting potential clients and the photoshoot in general?

Thanks!
