The flowers are blooming, the bees are buzzing, I've started my garden, and Easter is tomorrow morning (He is risen! He is risen, indeed!)...It's almost that time of year--GRAD SEASON! Working for Village Photographers is how I got my start in professional photography. They do all sorts of stuff, but VP specializes in candid photography for Greek events at Auburn University and graduation photos for high schools, colleges, and universities all over Alabama and Georgia (plus one in Pennsylvania).
I moved out of Auburn, so most candid photography events don't make me enough money to be worth running back and forth from Tallassee. Grad season is a whole other story. Today, I got my tentative graduation schedule, and it's going to be a busy few weeks coming up. I'll be working TWENTY-ONE ceremonies between April 28 and June 2. Happily, the vast majority of those are two or more ceremonies on the same day, which means those twenty-one grads are on eleven days. This looks to be an exceptionally lucrative grad season for Village Photographers and, by extension, for me.
Having my grad assignments nailed down means that I can also float the possibility of some spring and summer wedding photography. I'll have more about that in an upcoming post.
