Out of the blue a couple of days ago, I get a call. Would I be interested in doing a sports portrait shoot in Miami. It was a very detailed conversation and I was honest about where I feel that my skill level is at. The potential client was clear in what he was interested in was what is basically my signature style which is exclusively speedlights and reflectors. The fee was much more than I usually charge plus expenses and accommodations for me and my assistant. The kicker was that a series of shoots may result. I felt this could be a scam of some kind but I was not asked to put up any money. I was asked for my address and that was it. Today Fed Ex shows up with a contract, a deposit check and plane tickets. I get a call today from my client asking if I received the package and too hammer out some final details. I also get the full story on why the call came so out of nowhere. The original photographer they hired became embroiled in some legal issues that made my client want to distant himself. The shoot is on the 25th. The guy they had hired shoots in a style that mirrors mine. No other photographer that could give them what they wanted could book on such short notice. I was not the best out there, just the best available. I guess I can either succeed better than I ever imagined after this or maybe I prove to myself that I have peaked already and am over my head on this one. Hope I don't tank on this one like so many high draft picks bust in the NFL.
