I shoot several Jeep events and am getting more into Ren Faires and ComiCons. Most are within a three hour drive and I travel light (2 bodies/lenses, extra batteries, monopod, water) with any extra gear in the truck should I need it. The figures posted are total since June so it's rather pitiful.

2. Perhaps wear a shirt or t-shirt at the events that says who you are or advertises a bit for you.
Interestingly enough, the last event I did I was given an official "MEDIA" staff shirt and people kind of left me alone. When I did that event last year I had my photo vest over the t-shirt so people didn't see it and I had people coming up to me asking about how to find my pics. Of course, last year I was not as prepared and a different arrangement had been made with the venue. Needless to say, I lost money last year and while I did sell a bunch of photos from this year's event it's not near enough the volume I would want. Unfortunately people expect the immediacy and "free"dom of the internet now days.
