    Photographer at shows?

    So I was thinking of a new way to make a little extra money on the side, and I know if there's one thing horse riders love, it's pictures of themselves riding ;)

    I considered hitting local horse shows and taking photos, then giving the website to the people at the show and letting them go online to purchase them. I took photography class in high school, and have always been talented when it comes to photograph aesthetics and taking good photos. I can also make my own website and display the products neatly and professionally. I'd also invest in a nice camera, of course.

    Here are two of my main concerns:

    1) The shows I go to might have a hired photographer on site and of course me showing up and soliciting would be very bad.

    2) Some of the riders (or the riders' parents) might not consent to photos being taken of them. In other words, I'd need to get permission from everyone before taking photos.

    Not being at a professional level, I couldn't imagine being contracted by a club or organization to take photos yet. I mostly want to do small local shows - maybe held by 4H clubs .. smaller organizations that are less likely to contract photographers or that might appreciate someone taking photos. I could even donate my services, to get a profile started.

    Anyway, does anyone have experience with this that can offer a bit more insight into the equine photography world? How you got your start, the amount you typically expect to make per event, etc? Any discussion is appreciated. Thanks all!
