Why $20 Trip sponsorships
and Major Sponsorships are important.
Most people don't give it a second thought when they see a professional photographer show up at an event. Hopefully they think, oh good, there is a photographer here. I just got back from the auto repair shop for the third time in three weeks with another 400+ repair bill looming over my head tomorrow and I want to make sure you know the whole story of what it takes for me to show up at your event.
I have to have almost $4000 worth of camera (mandatory for the indoor action shots), about $5000 worth of expensive computer and software, thousands of dollars in gas, motel and food travel expenses that I only rarely get reimbursed for, and over $3000 dollars worth of repairs to keep my pickup on the road in 2012 alone. Camera cleaning last year was almost $1500 because they were filled with dust. In total, every year I need about $10,000 just to make the rounds. Photo sales last year were about $3500. To make up the difference, the $20 trip sponsor subscriptions and major sponsorships are my lifeline.
I don't need to make a profit to come to events, but it is critical that I at least cover my expenses. My day job as a graphic and web designer pays my bills thankfully, but there is not a dime left over to cover my photo trips. So if you enjoy the photos I take, please support me by making a $20 trip subscription or a larger trip sponsorship. I love doing this work and sharing it brings me endless joy.
I am putting new photos on my Facebook page almost every day that I'm home so be sure and check there often! Thanks!
