50 (or More) Free Photoshoots Across the US!
First let me say that the Free Photo shoots and the Workshops are two distinct and separate activities. They are not related, however, if you are attending a workshop and would also like to register for a free photo shoot you are welcome to do so.
This is the premise: While I am on this crazy once in a lifetime trip all over the US, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to document not just the scenic parts, but also American life, as it is. The idea would be to include 50 (or more) portraits of Americans doing American things, not so much as your-run-of-the-mill-looking-into-the-lens-portrait-sessions, but something truly unique, maybe a favorite family activity or interest or even a cool Sky Cam shot at the Dinner table would be sweet. I want every image to be so utterly unique that it couldn’t be duplicated and it would stand out as something extremely special to the families or individuals who win. To register all you have to do is submit a unique idea, and I will carefully consider every application and select at least one winner for each state (and in some cases maybe more).
Winners of the contest will have their sitting fee waived and will receive a copy of the digital negative used in the book (if and when it prints). I wish I could offer more with this but due to expense and the enormity of the scope of this project, plus the fact that it might fail completely and not happen- this is the most I can promise to the winners in writing
. If winners are interested in special orders, prints, albums, CDs, these will be made available for a nominal fee. I will say, it will definitely be worth your while and be a once in a lifetime photo opportunity. (BTW-If you are interested in learning photography, and cant attend a workshop, this is a fun and inexpensive way to get access to me for an hour or two. ☺ )
Winners will be selected on 3 criteria:
1. Uniqueness of their idea
3. Time Availability
The shoots will probably last 1-2 hours, but we will take as long as we need to get it right. Check my workshop schedule to see when I will be in your area.

Paid Portrait Session Info:
Also, I know when I first mentioned the trip, I had a lot of people say they would like to do a regular Michael Andrew type shoot. If you are interested, I would be happy to do this if (and only if) it fits into my schedule. Please contact me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org, with the Subject “Paid Portrait Session Inquiry”. I typically charge $500-750 for a family session- but if we can agree to keep it under and hour, I will offer a special price of $200, including all of the original digital negatives (non-photoshopped). This will be better for me as my time will be limited.
Thank and Best wishes!
