We generally only photography players that have been requested. If requests aren't made, it is most likely those teams and players won't be photographed. There are simply too many courts and players so our photographers focus on those requesting action photos.
The action photos are taken in a professional manner including close-ups, full lengths, and celebrations. Our photographers are asked to include the ball and as much of the player's face in the photo whenever practical.
You can request action photos in person at our photo booth. For some tournaments on-line action requests are possible as well.
As you make your request, you will need to provide your contact info, player uniform#, uniform color (if known), court and time. We also ask that you select your desired photo products (hi-res digital, prints, poster). This gives the photographer
important information so they can manage their shot selection and time. Because of limited photographers, we need to focus on those who want to purchase posters or a good number of prints or hi-res images.
Action photos need to be requested at least an hour ahead of your match so we can do proper scheduling. We book our photographers quickly so it's best if you request photos as early as possible in the tournament. Please don't wait until the last day
as you may not be able to get action photos that late.
If the match location or time is wrong or changes, you must notify us ASAP. For early, late matches, let us know the new approximate start time.
We will send a photographer to capture as many good action shots as possible during a part of the match you requested. Typically photographers take 200-300 photos or more per 15-20 minutes of a match. We focus on the players requesting action photos, but as our photographers are following the action, we frequently take
photos of others as well. If you believe others on your team are also interested in purchasing action photos, please invite them to request action photos for the same match. We can then focus on a group of players while we are following the action and increase the likelihood of getting action photos of the requested players.
We ask that teams request at most one match per day. We also ask that those requesting review the photos, add favorites to their album and even place orders from the photos from that one match. Only if necessary should a team make another request for another day.
Please be considerate of others who also want action photos and with limited photographers, we need to focus on those players who haven't had any action photographs taken.
There are many factors that make it challenging to capture good action photos:
- early, late matches
- team rotations where requested players aren't playing when our photographers are present
- flow of the game where requested players aren't involved with touches of the ball
- location of player within the court makes it difficult to capture the face of the player
If we don't get any photos or enough photos of a player, let us know. Our photographers are instructed to provide us this information as well, but sometimes we don't always get this feedback. If necessary, we will schedule another match to get more photos.
However, we limit each team to one match per day.
The action photos will be uploaded at our photo booth and be available for review on-line about an hour after the end of your match. For those requesting photos, you will receive a text message once the photos are uploaded.
You can review the photos on any of the view stations near our booth or on-line if that is available for the tournament.
You can create an album of your favorite photos. From this album you can then order posters, plaques, USB's, and prints as either ala carte purchases or as a package to save money.
Once you have placed your order, go to the checkout line so our staff can review and fulfill your order. If Pickup fulfillment is available for the tournament, you can also wait until you receive a text to
pickup your order. Plaques, USB's, and prints will be completed at the tournament. Posters will be mailed.
We do not accept checks, but we accept the major credit credit cards as well as cash for payment.
