My coworker is coaching a youth basketball team and needs someone to take the pictures of the team and individuals, then put together a package for the end of the season, including 8x10s wallets, etc. I'm very new to this, but I'm willing to try it out. My main concern is where do I get them developed? Will someplace like Walmart or CVS develop these? Any suggestions for taking this job? Thank you for any advice!

If you load the pics on a site like Shutterfly (really easy to do) they will print and ship them to your home for less money than Wal-Mart can process them for!

I do this very thing quite often in my area. MPIX has always done an outstanding job for me. You can also get magazine covers, trader cards, buttons, etc that seem to be popular with parents.

I use Canon gear...have several bodies and lenses and am quite pleased with them.

Costco

+1 for Costco if you do not have a site such as Exposure Manger, Zenfolio or similar. The only warning about Costco is that if you have a calibrated system, be sure to tell them to turn off Color Correction.
