Growing Up in a Successful Business

I recently attended the Fred Hall Outdoor Sports Show. Bart fell into his career, though he actually worked at trade ever since he was a youngster when his father launched sports shows. Fred Hall is a name well known on the West Coast in fishing and outdoor sports. For decades Fred produced the successful event that is held annually in major cities at convention centers. The premier sports show includes fishing, archery, hunting, travel, automotive, boating, houseboats, and many aspects of and surrounding outdoor sports. Not all of us are quite so lucky to be born into a business and career, and many actually shun the advice of parents who want us to take over a business.

Bart Hallís name isnít on the sports show, but he proudly carries a family tradition and those who know of his successful events seek him out to participate. Thousands of people attend his events and lots of business is done right on the convention floor. In addition to his business being a success, Bart Hall is actually helping thousands connect with healthy outdoor sports and lifestyles.


Portfolios are important (necessary) if you are looking for REAL, paying photo job.

Photo Regulations

Each city has different rules and regulations about taking portraits commercially at California beaches. Of course we know that low end photographers are looking to save a buck so they head to beaches with few or no fees and restrictions.

Sports Photography

Most beach sports photographers don't make a full time living in the trade, but they do have fun. Some of the best surf photographers, for instance, are surfers, themselves.

People Pictures

Everyone can take sunsets. Stock agencies have far too many. People pictures for editorial and advertising are in demand. If you can see a face, get a photo release!
