We shoot team and action photos for various folks around town. We have a pretty simple sales pitch: Better Pictures. Better Prices. Better Service. What else would you like to know?
One more thing. I will also shoot and make available the very best action shots of all the teams I shoot.
Can you shoot my kid?
You bet. After numerous inquiries from parents, I've decided to make it official. For $49, I'll capture your son or daughter at his/her athletic best. Win or lose, you'll be able to see the expression on their faces. I'll give you at least a dozen high resolution, watermarked files for viewing and sharing. And an 8x10 of your choice. (If you're a Bellevue Steeler or cheerleader, I can probably get you a package from the thousands of shots I've already taken.) Let me know if you're interested.
We have a number of new items this year, from 8"x10"" Statuettes to 24" Stick-Em-Ups. Also new this year are 10.5" x 13" metallic print Memory Mate plaques, and the
Big Ticket, a 30" tall ticket replica. We also have our usual selection of photo packages, key chains, magnets, buttons, calendars, trading cards, coffee mugs and the like. Did I mention our money back guarantee on all of these items?
I shoot all kinds of pictures for all kinds of reasons. What I don't do, is offer a kickback (subsidy, percentage, shooting fee, etc.) to the league. That would force me to raise my prices. I will miss some opportunities with this position, but I'd rather form partnerships with the teams that agree with me.
I believe the parents already spend enough without having to pay more than they should for pictures. If the league needs more money to operate, then they should charge more accordingly.
Ask your board members how much they're getting from the photo guy. That's how much more you're paying for your pics. And that's what lets me offer: Better Pictures. Better Prices. Better Service. If you agree with me, let me know. And ask your league, "Why aren't we using Bellevue Photo?"
