Adding Real Value for Students at Prom (Homecoming and Graduation)!

Value Price vs. Hidden Cost for Prom Photography

As we have talked with many school sponsors it is astonishing how many don’t know how much pictures are actually costing their students. Many schools allow a particular company to come to their dance because they show up for “free” or for a minimal fee usually under $1000 but what they fail to realize is that it is costing your students more in the long run when compared to Firefly Event Photography’s innovative approach. This approach is dedicated to helping add value to student events while saving them a lot of money. Continue reading to see how Firefly Event Photography adds value and savings for high school students.

Technology & Education: Things Have to Change!

At Firefly Event Photography & Entertainment, LLC. we use technology to improve the opportunity for all students to have professional photography at every event where the memories are important. I can’t imagine where the world will be technologically in 20 years but if companies aren’t using current technology to deliver more professional images, faster and for a lower per person cost then the students are coming up short. I am still shocked when schools decide to use companies that haven’t changed much since I graduated in 1991. Technology is always changing and these processes can be used to better the events high school students enjoy.

FireflyEPE is here to make a difference. Professional photography should be available for every students. Students should also have the opportunity to take multiple images and have those images delivered fast. That’s what we do at Firefly Event Photography. We deliver more professional images than any other company and always include unlimited access and downloading without charging any extra fees.

What Passion Helped Me Create

My company FireflyEPE means a lot to me. It is my way of giving back to the industry that I care about the most. I really care that high schools are fun and memorable. Through the years I have heard and said many complaints about the education system. I have heard many students complain about events like prom and homecoming that took sponsor months to plan. I have been a complainer just like everyone else until I got involved. Now I know the work that goes into these events.

Firefly Event Photography & Entertainment forces me to put those complaints away and just do what I love to do. When I first started Firefly there were times when I would wish I was a doctor or a lawyer. You know, daydreaming that someone would look at and say “he accomplished something.” Well too bad world. I am a guy that loves to deliver great products to high school students and have fun while I do it.
My wishes for Firefly are simple.

•I want to deliver our product now and have those kids be on our website in 20 years thankful that our product existed in 2013.

•I want to connect with schools that see the value of what we are doing.

•I want to connect with students that are frustrated with the same old thing while the world around them continues to change and develop cool stuff.

•I want to make life easier for the event sponsors and planners.

•I want parents to be thankful that they can get their kid’s images without pulling out the wallet again and again.

I left my teaching position in 2012 so that I could positively affect more students. I have a personal challenge of helping 10,000 students a year. Because of that personal challenge, I couldn’t see myself sitting at another job and saying “see I told you things were bad in education.” I believe my passion for giving something great to high school students will continue to catch on and FireflyEPE will be the premier company in Florida delivering great event photography. Since I have developed the FireflyEPE system I have found the one thing that gets me excited about giving my all as much as teaching and coaching did. I love what I do and I will continue to work extra hard to deliver great things to high school students.
