Schooled Student Spotlight: Cami Turpin
For today’s student spotlight, we are introducing you to Schooled student Cami Turpin, of Blue Hill Images. Cami has been a Schooled student for about a year now, and in that time she has shot three schools, made an average of $4,000 per school AND has doubled her annual income. You go girl!!
Why fine art school photography?
Cami first signed up for Schooled because of her son. “My son goes to a charter school for kids on the autism spectrum, and my MAIN goal was to be able to do portraits for his school that truly show their personalities, and don't force them into uncomfortable situations.” She continues, “I had been offering school portraits to preschools for a while, and I was interested in offering them to larger schools, especially for schools with special needs kids… Schooled looked like a great resource for rounding out my shooting experience with the business side of things for larger schools.”
What was the most useful aspect of Schooled?
“The actual business side--the process of how to get from start to finish with a big school--was very helpful. I was able to get an excellent basic structure and understanding of the timeline, and then fine tune the process to my own workflow and schools.” She also talked highly of the students-only Facebook support group for Schooled. “The Facebook group is amazing, because I'm able to have others working in the trenches help me troubleshoot when new things come up (because they always do).”
