Why Take Sports Action Shots?
Taking sports photos is exciting and technically challenging, but the rewards can last a lifetime. Some of my favorite shots of my own kids are action shots from the field.
Unlike a posed photo, sports action photography lets you see your child in a whole new light, revealing the determination, effort, joy and disappointment – all things they’ll rarely display during a formal photo session.
What About Team Pictures?
While I love action shots, classic team photos still have their place. There is something magical about a team photo, especially years later when everyone has gone their separate ways. The traditional team photo package includes a few group photos as well as individual posed shots .
Sports Action Photography
I love action shots. I’ve taken tens of thousands of sports action shots ranging from baseball to wrestling. When taking action shots, I can focus on a single player (many shots of one player) or an entire team (a few shots of each player). For team action shoots, I’ll always do my best to get at least one good shot of every player that takes the field (may not be possible for players with limited playing time).
Do You Do Trading Cards ?
Many people love to share “trading cards” of their player with friends and family. While we do not offer physical trading cards, we can deliver images in “trading card format” for and additional charge. These images are suitable for the front of a trading card and use standard simple templates. Custom graphics design is not available for trading cards, but if you have a nice team logo in the proper format, we can incorporate it.
What Sports ?
One of the great things about being a sports photographer is that you get to shoot all varieties of competition. I most frequently shoot my own baseball player, but I am available to shoot football, basketball, lacrosse, volleyball, wrestling, marathons and golf. I’m open to shooting other sports as well, including cheer.
Sports actions photos are easy from a preparation standpoint, but require some scheduling work to pick a time and location from the season schedule that works for lighting, weather and availability. Once a game is selected, I’ll meet you there and take lots of pictures in various situations. For team action shoots, I’ll always do my best to get at least one good shot of every player that takes the field (may not be possible for players with limited playing time).
For traditional posed team pictures, I’ll take several shots of the team together and the players individually. Individual pictures are available in “trading card format” for an additional charge.
After the photoshoot, I’ll edit the pictures and deliver the best shots to you digitally. Once delivered, the digital picture files are yours to use as you please. Professionally prepared prints and print products can be ordered directly from our website. Please note that heavy digital retouching and special effects are not included in the session price. Check the Session Pricing Page for details about current pricing and what is included in my session packages.
