Sports & Events: Setup for Team Photos

Jeff Gump

Team photos – kids and coaches looking for where they need to be, parents with credits cards wanting to know what packages are available and can they substitute a poster for a magnet, camera equipment, cashiers, photographer assistants – it can all be a recipe for disaster.

Never fear – PPA Instructor and sports photographer extraordinaire Jeff Gump gives you everything you need so that Photo Day runs like a well-oiled machine.

Learn Jeff’s 5 Golden Rules of sports photography. If you glean nothing else, these alone can change how you do business. Next, establish the supply checklist for what you will need – everything from products and tables, pennants and pop-up tents. Yes, pop-up tents! Learn how to create a professional yet dazzling display. Develop a checklist so that no battery, light, tripod or extension cord goes unmentioned. Finally, learn the “miscellaneous” list that only an expert like Jeff knows.

No longer will Photo Day cause nightmares and cold sweats. Get ready to blow the Boy Scout motto, “Be Prepared” out of the water. You own this!
