If they won't "GIVE" you a list...you can always buy the list. https://www.google.com​/#q=student+mailing+li​sts (external link)

I tried to pay for them, they claimed that since they have a contract with the school photographer they are not legally allowed to sell the list to another photographer.

makes me wonder if they are allowed to sell the list to a type of company that they dont have a contract with, like a dry cleaners or computer repair shop. :D

I have heard that this is not true. I have been told that the student list has to be made available no matter if there is a contract with photographer or not. Schools just like to say that to photographers. But the companies that sell student mailing list have a way to get the list without you ever talking to the school. You just pay more usually. Again...this is what I have been told...I have never tried to get a list! hmmm I might try!

Thats what I thought, I even pointed out that due to the freedom of information act *I assume thats true* they have to provide the list, the first two just stopped responding there, and the other talked to their lawyer and pointed out that they are in tn and im in va and that was that, they actually mailed that one to me, must have visited my website to get my mailing address.

Ive heard of people buying lists elsewhere but ive heard that the lists not directly from the schools are full of mistakes.

I wanted to try it out this year, pick a handful of students from each school and send them 4 mailers over a course of 6 months, just to see how it went.

I think you are looking for consistency in places it doesnt exist. State laws and local school board policy may place limits on the sort of information you are seeking. So what may be true in one jurisdiction may well be the opposite in another.

I suppose one could just look in the local newspaper for names posted for sporting teams and honor roll and such to compile your own list.

But how would you get mailing addresses from the newspaper announcement?

I just stopped by my local High School and went to see the counselor. I had never met her, so I introduced myself to her and she told me she had seen some of my baby/kids work. I told her what I wanted to do. I told her that we would like to offer the students more than just the headshots the contract photographer provides. She told me to have a seat and withing 3 minutes I had a list of all of the 11th grade students this year! (We also booked a session for her 4 yr old grandson while I was there!)

Jay, was it printed or digital form? :)

Do you ask for any counselor or is there a specific one to ask for? :)

This one was printed...I don't know if they could have emailed it or not, but I asked for a list and this is what they gave me. It was suggested that the counselor is the best to talk to. The counselor is the one that helps all of these kids work on scholarships and college apps, so she had quick access to the list!

Some very good friends of mine asked me to take photos of their senior. Not my normal cup-o-tea, but I love portraits, so it was something I wanted to try. We ended up picking a day when it rained cats and dogs and did our best to find creative spots at a near by state park. We got lucky and caught some breaks in the rain which allowed us out of the buildings...

I was very blessed to have a great, relaxing time with him, and his parents. His dad, my best friend, was my "grip" for the lightstand with my 580EXII and a Cheetah softbox and his mom held a 5-in-1 Westcott folding reflector. Not bad!

Comments/Critiques welcome.
