Great Book!

Did you actually shoot all of the sports and location shots? How do you structure your pricing on something like this as it must have take you a lot of time to shoot, edit and put the book together.

Again thanks for the comments.

With respect to pricing and exact details I like to keep a bit of that somewhat confidential. I do charge a sitting fee that covers the first shoot, the first shoot is about 2 hours and includes studio and location. Then there are some reduced "sitting fee" charges for me to run and grab some "editorial" style shots of the kids event.

I have special pricing that includes prints and the book...I have a set number that I try to reach for doing each senior.

99% of my work is done through Style Creative Photography in Frisco. I've not updated the website in months (working on that as we speak). Hopefully by this time next week my senior page will have a very different look. Right now it is about a year old so there is not much to see.

Please forgive my ignorance but: do you find that you have success selling more than one copy? Do extended family members often buy one as well as the subjects immediate family? Do other kids buy copies of each others books? Just wondering.

Yes and no...I've not seen other kids buying other kids books but it is not uncommon to sale multiple copies to senior.

GREAT work! If you don't mind giving out a trade secret what is the cost for something like that?

OP stated they'd like to keep the pricing confidential.

To the OP- Awesome job, really top-notch work there.

Im interested in the setup for the last shots, if you would care to let me in on that. =) Approximation would be great to lead me in the right direction..

Whoops... sorry, didn't see that. I withdraw the question :-)

They are simple silhouettes.....I don't recall the exact settings but simply I put the main light behind her and exposed for that...I had her go through a sequence of poses...played with the white balance to get the warm glow.

IMO what makes these work is that they are in a tunnel so the framing of the shot really worked. The tunnel provided motion/depth to the image.

Really great stuff, Any chance you would share any of your techniques on the textures and background, frames etc on a few of these. They are't numbered so I can't tell you specifically hopefully you understand LOL

They are numbered if you look on the bottom of the page...on occasion though I have noticed that some browsers won't show the image numbers while viewing simpleviewer.

Some of the textures and backgrounds are things I've collected over the last year or so...some are variations I've edited from Photoframe 4.
