I did a little bit of looking around, but didn't find good answers to my specific questions.
I've been doing a fair amount of action photography lately - mostly dog sporting events. I've decided to try and get into kids sports, mostly because my daughters will be playing in a couple of years, and my 70-200 has JUST enough reach for the smaller fields that the little kids play on.
So, my main question is how to get started, since I don't know anyone who's got small kids in sports. Should I just approach a coach at a game and ask him? Should I post an ad on CL and offer my services trying to target parents directly? I don't really care about doing the individual or team portraits, so I don't know that I would compete with whatever photographer they've already got on the job?
I plan on setting up a Zenfolio account so it's easy for parents to order prints or get digital downloads, so that part of it I think I'll be able to handle.
My other question would be about putting up pics of the entire game on a Zenfolio page. Am I going to offend parents if I'm there for one kid by handing out my business card and saying that I'll be posting pics of their kids on the Internet? People can be tricky when it comes to kids so I'm trying to figure out how to approach this the best way.
Hoping for some great words of wisdom!
