When I was a child, the eve of Halloween was a wondrous thing; The streets filled with pranksters and trick-or-treaters. Today, it seems much more reserved. For me, It just seems to be a time of year when my Facebook page fills with night club and party invites. On the uptake, this is a great time to get some event photography gigs that can expand your portfolio and put some extra cash in the bank. There are all sorts of events that take place that can provide a photographer with opportunities.
Depending on my schedule, I will hit the local Zombie Walk. These Zombie Walks are held nation wide and give you a wide range of candid shots. I do not know about other cities, but the event in Indianapolis is geared to benefit the local food bank.
There are plenty of parties that occur as well as night club events that can yield some opportunity as well. Bars and Nightclubs will often host costume contents and events that are sponsored by local promoters. You can work with these venues and promoters to shoot for the evening or set-up a small photo booth to sell photos to the patrons. Bare in mind that setting up photo booth is hit or miss as far as profitability .
