Registering an Athlete for Photos


Registration is a way to ensure that both action and sports-portraits are taken of an athlete during a game. I focus on registered athletes during the game and take photos that not only show the athlete in action, but also professional photos of the athlete outside the lines of play to reveal their experiences and emotions. All photos of the athlete are provided as high-resolution digital images that you are free to print and share (see below).


How much does registration cost?

A.Registration is $70 per athlete per game (there is a 3 game and a 5 game prepaid discounted package as well). Once you submit a registration form and I've confirmed that I can accommodate your request, an invoice will be emailed to you that can be paid online using a credit card.

NOTE: not only does the registration process ensure that you will receive professional photos of your athlete, but the cost per photo will be significantly less than the cost of buying photos individually.

When should I register my athlete?

A.You can register an athlete for any game in which I'm scheduled to shoot (please see the calendar of planned events on this site). Feel free to request that I shoot a game if I have nothing scheduled. NOTE: the registration process, including payment, must be completed before an event begins.

How many photos will I receive?

A.The short answer is - you will receive ALL of the photos where your athlete is the MAIN FOCUS of the photo (the reason I took the photo) and the quality of the photo meets my high standards with a MINIMUM of 20 photos. A typical number is 25 photos but often clients have received many, many more. The total number depends on how much the athlete plays or is active during the game.

When and how will I receive my photos?

A.Every photo that I post is carefully edited to ensure that the photo you receive is the best possible image. In general, your photos will be available within a week of the event. Once your photos are ready, they will be placed in a private photo gallery for you to view and download. The gallery will be available for at least two two weeks.

Will I own the photos?

A.No, you are purchasing a personal use license. I will still maintain the copyright but you are free to print and share within the provisions of the personal use license.

What if I don't like the photos?

A.In the very unlikely event that you are not satisfied with your gallery of photos I will refund your money. A refund request must be submitted before any photos are downloaded.
