Time to think about Sports Photography

So, it's supposedly spring although you wouldn't really know it given our weather! You can tell, though, by the amount and quality of daylight. I see that local sports organizations are starting spring registration and tryouts for their competitive teams. When we had three competitive soccer athletes in the house this was a very busy time of year for us, with multiple tryouts in many locations around the city. On the one hand I miss the chaos. On the other, not having to manage that chaos means I now have lots more time for photographing your team!

In addition to providing tournament and competition coverage and an on line print/digital file sales system, I also offer game coverage for your team and team/individual photo services for your club or organization (starting at $15 per player).

I've been doing Sports Photography in Edmonton for 10 years. I've been very lucky to have photographed lots of really talented young athletes have success over the years. Check out the 2006 Alberta U16 boys Provincial Team, gold medalists at the national Reese Cup tournament that year. If you're familiar with the local soccer community you will see several familiar faces:

To name a few: Randy Edwini-Bonsu (Eintracht Braunschweig), Marcus Johnstone (UAlberta Bears), Antonio Rago (FC Edmonton), Michal Misiewicz (Canada)

Athletes spend hours perfecting their skills and pouring their hearts and souls into their sport. They'll remember the time with their teammates and their personal accomplishments for the rest of their life. As parents, we are often so involved in supporting them following their dreams that it seems thats all we do. Take it from me, those hectic times do not last forever. Soon enough all you will have are the memories. Make sure that you have great shots of your young athlete through the years to help remember this fantastic time. Book your photography now and save 25% on all services booked by April 15.

Please check out more samples of my sports photography, and contact me to discuss your sports photo needs for 2013.

I'm excited that Edmonton will be hosting some of the 2015 Women's World Cup. It makes me wonder if any of the young ladies that participated in last summers ASA Provincial Championships will be there! There was some fantastic soccer played at the tournament and it was a privilege to be the Official Photographer of the event. The U18 Girls Champions were Edmonton Victoria, a team with much talent and passion.  Will we see any of these young ladies on the pitch then?
