    My daughter recently had her first pictures made at school and that got me to wondering. I have no interest in being a school photographer, b/c I do have a day job right now, but how are they paid? Do they typically charge the school a nominal fee and then also get money from the prints, or do they strictly work for the sales of the prints. If they get a wage from the school also, how much do they get? Anyone here a school photog?

    Oh.... OFTEN, you're expected to return a "discount" to the school, along with many other premiums... IE: calendars, certificates, rolodex cards with photos, id cards....

    It can be very competitive.

    I agree that most of the photographers for the school offer massive discounts for the school either a flat rate or depending on how much is brought in from the students.....

    They also offer other items outside of just the photos in attempts to make money as well.

    Quick search, this may help http://www.schoolphotocompany.org/packages.html
