    I am an Advertising Account Executive for a local ad firm, client needed a photo shoot done and I decide I could pull it off.

    Well, I guess I did cause she signed off on two photos for use in the campaign.

    I think I am in the right business to promote my photos and such to various advertising people.....now if only I could get the photo business to pay as well as the Ad Manager business I would be happy he he.....I think once the billboards make it up, I will take photos of them and then post them up here.

    Congrats on the account and especially the billboard. Let us know how you billed for the photo rights. I bid for a shot on the side of a bus. 200 dollars for the shot and a negotiable fee of 3 to 5 thousand for the rights. I think that kind of exposure should be compensated for. I lost the bid, but I don not think I was too far off.

    $250 for the shoot, and about $360 per month in advertising commissions......

    it was for a Teppan and Sushi place, so I also get "taken care of" whenever I want to eat there.

    Thanks for the info. Of course the client thought I was on glue when I gave him my bid. Then I got worried that I came in too high. Like I say I stuck to my guns. Now I am glad I did.

    I do see alot of potential in the exposure I will get when the campaign goes up...as a friend of mine who lives in Denver and is a pro says "I am just waiting to be discovered".
