I posted this in "General Photography talk" but the thread was quite old, last post April last year.
My situation. My daughter is in gymnastics and is doing fairly well in her training for her age group/level.
I want to get photos of her and also help the club out at the same time.
I've spoken with the head coach at the club about taking pictures of the kids at competitions and events around the city. I also offered my amateur/hobbiest services with two goals in mind; 1. experience for my self 2. pictures for the club.
I was clear and very to the point about wanting to help, but...but, I am not a pro.
She asked me to come up with a proposal about what I am offering.
I am asking the experienced (you) what should be included as far as a pitch to the board. Like I said, I am looking to help the club out by offering photos for the website and also for the wall where the kids can see themselves. I would include a watermark, but only to identify that I took them and to promote myself if the images are worthy.
Is there anything I should keep in mind when drafting a proposal? Anything I should stipulate or offer also...images to the parents with a kickback to the club?
My daughter is doing really well in her training and I really hope she gets to compete eventually. I mainly want pictures of her, but want to offer the club something as well.
Thanks in advance.
