A Stock and Assignment Pitch Opportunity

Wednesday, January 16, 2008

An inquiry came in from a photographer looking to make available his images to a small but well-heeled contingent of sports enthusiasts.

Client's Request:

The photographer made observations at a recent trade show for these enthusiasts that the photographic imagery that the people he was trying to buy from was poor, and could use improvement. Further, a review of the local sports shops dedicated to this field determined that the photographer could pitch assignments to them of their storefronts and interiors.

Advertising Still Shoot In Tandem with Video Shoot

Tuesday, January 08, 2008

An inquiry came in from a good friend of mine looking for insights on this:

Client's Request:

“special” photography (i.e. it’s not unit photography) to take place during and around a video production of a national fitness expert working on endorsement of multinational health-related product.

Shoot to include:
- 16 scenes of her performing various fitness maneuvers, which includes 2-4 of her using the health-related product
- Single image on seamless for use as cut-out of expert in various (see below) electronic media.

Experience tells this photographer that is is highly likely that the set will be lit well enough that s/he can use the lighting set up for the video portion of the assignment.

Ad Agency Request for Unique Images

Tuesday, January 01, 2008

A call came in from a colleague who was asking my advice for pricing a request. This is the request.

Client's Request:

I’d really like your help.  I have shown some images to an ad agency that is doing work for a huge sporting goods company.  They’re from a {league} game so it’s not something that can be easily reproduced.
For what it’s worth, I have purchased your book and have found some helpful advice but I have no idea how to respond to the agency’s request for pricing.
