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.

Elements of the School Dance: The Committee

“Representing everyone can be difficult if you only plan for a clique or two.”

The committee has to represent all the students that may attend the event and get them excited about coming to the latest planned dance. A good committee leaves their bias at the door and allows for the group to take into account every student. The goal should be to serve every student not please every student. Serving every student includes making sure that the event has plenty of elements that a high percentage of ticket buyers will enjoy. The big job of the committee is to help students feel connected to the school. Get out there and connect to your student body. Find volunteers that can bring a fresh perspective to the event. Enjoy creating a wonderful event for your fellow students.

Q. How can your committee plan an event that will connect to a majority of your student body?

Q. Who are the different groups you have to consider serving. Do you know what they like or are you guessing?

Q: Is the committee a collective group of people that want the best for the students or themselves?

Firefly Event Photography & Entertainment, LLC believes that high school event photography should be creative, cost effective for all students and accessible for years. Our system helps every student feel like the homecoming king, prom queen and valedictorian.

Elements of the School Dance: The Sponsor

“You’re in the business of making the lives of others better through events. So prove it!”

The sponsor of the school dance is the leader. They are the adult that has decided to help the students have an event that otherwise wouldn’t have a chance of existing. They lead and guide the event in the direction to achieve desired results. The sponsor is well respected and understands that their event will be enjoyed by many but it is important to lead the way to a great event. Sponsors work tirelessly to keep the faith that students will support all the effort it takes to put an event on. Well before the first dime is spent the sponsor has to focus the direction for success. Sponsors are your teachers that do their daily job and then take on the responsibility of honoring tradition by giving their extra time and talents back. A great sponsor is rewarded with nonverbal feedback of smiles and laugher. Take a bow and get some rest. You are going to have to do it all over again next year.

Q: What are three most important goals that have to be accomplished by throwing this school dance?

Q: What will you do to ensure that a great event is delivered under your watch?

Q: What reward do you have ready for yourself when you achieve this greatness?
