How does the Individual game shoot work?
I come to your athlete's event and shoot them in action. I am focused on your player in all facets of their game so I only take 2 single players per game. For instance, you book me for your daughter's basketball game and another parent decides they want their child photographed too. You each pay the $75 fee and you each get a dedicated online gallery of your athlete, where you can download your images in high resolution and print them yourself if you wish. (At least 25 photos)
How does a team game shoot work?
I charge a $40 fee to show up and shoot the team in action. When I'm done editing, I make an online gallery for your team that you can send to your parents/relatives. The images can be purchased individually at $3 apiece or 6 for $15. You get a download link sent to you immediately after payment. If you make a favorites list, and don't feel like adding each photo, send me an email and I can just send you an invoice and then send your whole favorites list to you.
Multiple day events like tournaments will require the $40 fee to be paid per day.
How does a team Sportraits session work?
On a planned date and time, I will arrive early to get all of my lights and gear set up for team and individual athlete photos. These aren't your normal sports portraits so they will take more time and more shots, so plan accordingly.
I have an online order form you can send to your parents so they can order their athlete's photos ahead of picture day.
Currently, I am not offering digital downloads of these images. I will provide the digital images to a school (for the yearbook) or print shop at your request. I also offer print options like vinyl sports banners for these shoots. Please let me know if that is something you're interested in.
I will deliver the packages to your coach/school where they can pass them out.
Where are you based and do you travel?
I'm in Bigfork, MT. All of my sports options are based on a Flathead Valley location. I will travel out of the valley, with mileage rates applied. Feel free to contact me with any travel questions.
When will we get our photos?
An individual game shoot is usually returned to you within 24 hours, but no more than 48 hours. Team game shoots are generally about the same time frame.
Sportrait packages will have a 2 week turn around time from the day of your team shoot.
Do you sell prints?
I do, and they can be ordered through your gallery link. My print lab is in Minnesota, and is of the highest quality.
Your shoot (not including Sportraits) has a print release included so you can share your photos online and print them wherever you'd like.
