Sponsored Moments in Play!

I love a clean background because it always makes the subject in play stand out. Sometimes you don't have a choice when photographing in public venues. There is a lot of sponsor signage and team logos everywhere. When covering the game you have to take the action where it's happening.

Once in a while you get lucky when something amazing happens - framed up, locked into the play and it all just works.

And then sometimes you just have to laugh! Referees and other interference in photographing sports is inevitable. The way I look at it is, it makes me more agile and creative in my shooting.

Silence is a beautiful thing! Be patient and wait for that right moment. Go early and stay late is just part of a photographers business hours.

Sponsors spend an enormous amount of money to keep our athletic programs and athletes active. It takes a lot of work to get sponsors and even more effort to keep them. My marketing background makes me hypersensitive to appreciating and valuing great sponsors.

When photographing minor sports in recreational facilities positioning is critical to get the shot. Signage around the venue can add character to your photograph, bring depth and tell a story. A photo is worth a thousand words!

Most wall art is balanced around the gym floor. Team logos are generally behind the endlines and pennants/banners may hang from the ceiling. It is important to know your angles to prepare yourself for the frame.

Messaging and call to action is important in efficient signage. With great branding just a glimpse of a logo can stimulate a viewer to act!
