Working my way up! (photos included)

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by Voyager1968, Jul 9, 2008.

  1. A few days ago I posted a few shots of the little league all-star playoffs that I was shooting for the local paper. Well, the sports editor liked what I did so much, that I was "requested" to shoot last nights game, and now I have tomorrow nights game as well! I know it'll probably cool off some, but I can't help but think that the "chain of events" and the good work I've done with them have opened some eyes. Perhaps, I'll be doing a lot of shooting this upcoming football and basketball season! :wink:

    steve sounds like you are on the right track .... just make sure that you are not getting taken advantage of. (make sure you get paid )
  4. Yup, I am getting paid per photo published and a round trip mileage rate for each assignment I cover.

    Congratulations! I'm with Topher. Be sure to get paid.
  11. Congratulations. That's great they are paying you for your talent and efforts!

  12. hey Congrats Steve...would love to see some of your published photos...
  13. Thanks everyone! Sometime over the weekend I'll try to post some of the pics I've shot. Right now I'm shooting the Little League District 18 Championships. I did one this evening, and I have another one tomorrow night.
  14. Did the game tonight, and now I have the legion game on Sunday to do. I promise to get some photos up this weekend.
  15. Well, here are the published photos as promised. The lighting conditions were harsh being they were early evening games, but I did the best I could. They turned out fairly well, but could have been better. I still have a lot to learn, plus they are cropped pretty heavy since I only have 200mm to work with. Sorry about the copyright watermark, but I'm not crazy about having to use Flickr to post photos here. I wish we could directly attach them without using a hosting site.
