I just got a reply to an email I sent to a company advertising on Craigslist.
Jolesch Photography shoots high school marching band competitions nationwide.
I have been invited to shoot the events "in my area." Pay is $10 per band photographed. With big competitions this can be 24-40 bands, which means a decent amount of money.
I will naturally accept the offer, especially if I don't have to find a way down to Phoenix whenever these events come up. Shooting in Flagstaff would be perfect... otherwise I am going to have to find a cheap and easy way to Phoenix.
That's my mini-update for today.
