Jeff Gump

Once upon a time, all the players and coaches would gather outside on the bleachers – in the rain, in the cold, in the sun, shade or shadows – and some photographer would snap a photo. That was then; this is now. In this video, Jeff Gump highlights the changes in sports photography and how you can sell the newer, more improved ways of doing business.

Discuss how to loop in local media; discover why the green screen and modern technologies result in better images and a better experience.
