I've been thinking about this venture. I live in Hollywood, so I have pretty easy access to celebrities.
My issue/question is how would I go about selling my pictures to the highest bidder? How would I go about finding buyers?
Some of the B list celebrities who are super popular will "advise" certain paps of their activities and locales for those activities......for a kick back on payments from the major gossip media producers. If OC "Kardashian" pics can sell for $25,000, they know it. So they say, "Hey Papparazi man, we know you're getting 25K for pics of us. If you'll let us have some of that on the reg we'll tell you where we'll be before the other paps find out..."
Or so I've been told.
Yeah I've heard about that.
I was also thinking about selling pictures directly to local paps around me at the locations where we're shooting. Like right there, on the spot, cash on hand. I understand I'd be selling these pictures at an extreme markdown.. But hey.. CASH.
I don't know anything. I'm just looking for some ideas.
