Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Stomping Ground

Let’s face it, school portraits are boring. Flat and dull.

The WSJ has taken a a look at the industry and discovered some new companies trying to revitalize it.

Kelsey and Dennis Kleiman of Brooklyn, N.Y., were underwhelmed by their daughter’s school pictures. So Mr. Kleiman, a professional photographer, volunteered to take less-stilted portraits of their daughter’s classmates. It was such a hit with the parents that in 2009 Mr. and Ms. Kleiman, whose children are 3 and 6 years old, founded a school portrait company, Stomping Ground Photo. It is among a handful of companies trying to recast school pictures.

Stomping Ground photographs are taken against a plain background and capture kids doing kid stuff: jumping, laughing, pouting. It is now photographing about 20 schools in New York and Los Angeles. Parents can view proofs online and decide which photos to purchase.
