Sports Portraits

Post by Ernst-Ulrich Schafer » Sun Apr 08, 2018 7:09 pm

One of our speakers at my PPW Convention was Pete Rezac. Here is my lst attempt from learning from him. I'm working on Marketing this sort of portraiture to my area.
Hefty price up front, I pick out the best, they receive a matted and framed 20X20 BW portrait.

Excellent Ernst. You should do well with this. By "this type", do you mean youth sports portraits in particular? I would think that would be a good market. The parents who line the little league and soccer fields here would be a prime target if someone ever developed it. I know I would invest in quality images of my grandsons if such were available here. For those kids who love sports, it's a much more compelling memory-maker than a portrait in the dreaded dress-up clothes.

Love them both Ernst, but the second one HAS got to be a favorite.
