Re: cross country
I started shooting sports when my daughter ran cross-country. I wish I had unlimited time and resources to shoot everything, but I don’t. While I will try to get to at least one event in every sport, experience tells me that I won’t sell many photos of events where it is relatively easy for friends and family to get some of their own, like cross country. And I simply cannot afford to keep doing high school sports unless I can sell enough to cover more of my expenses. So I’m devoting most of my available time to sports where I can get significantly better results than most people because of closer access to the athletes and better equipment and know-how to deal with difficult lighting conditions.
