A little planning and good communication prior to your shoot make for a great experience and fantastic images.

For families, this session includes pictures of children individually and together as well as family pictures.

Why hire a professional to photograph your athlete, dancer or cheerleader?
Many people can capture high quality images of their family members sitting still, but sports photography poses several special kinds of challenges. Cameras don’t see light the same way the human eye does, so stopping action in low light (in a gym, theater, or sports field at night) is a bit of a torture test for both the camera and the photographer. Without the right gear and an eye for where and when the action is going to happen, photos turn out blurry, “noisy” (lots of grain in the image), or you miss the shot entirely. To make sure I get the shot, I use some of the best gear available for sports photography, including fast, professional Canon lenses and the Canon EOS 1D-X, capable of shooting 12 frames per second and in very low light (night football games, poorly lit basketball games, etc.)
Sports action sessions last for the duration of the sporting event. Locations outside of Jacksonville can be scheduled but may involve an extra charge for travel time. For water sports like water skiing, wake boarding, surfing, etc., the session begins upon photographer’s arrival at the marina or beach.

30-60 minute pre-session meeting
2 hours onsite shooting sporting event within the greater Jacksonville area
