High School Sport Photography

Professional Photography Services for High School Fall Sports

School is back in session and fall sports are now in full swing! Football games, soccer games, volleyball matches, cross country meets, golf tournaments, tennis matches, field hockey games, and swimming & diving events are on the horizon. Do you have a professional photographer to capture them?

Sports are an important part of the high school experience. Using a professional photographer to capture the action-packed moments of a sports event is the best way to preserve the memory for a lifetime. If you are a high school that needs professional images of your student athletes for website publication or yearbook purposes, Epic’s Artwork & Photo has you covered.

We Know the Rules

When it comes to sports photography, understanding the rules of the sport you are planning to photograph is key. Knowing the ins and outs of a sport is critical for anticipating action and capturing important moments. We know that the better you know the game, the better the images will be.

We’ll Be There, Rain or Shine!

We know the weather can be unpredictable. As long as the event is not cancelled, we will show up to shoot it! We have the professional equipment necessary to photograph crisp, clear images—even in rainy conditions.

We Anticipate Action

We are proactive, not reactive. If you are reacting to action happening on the field, you have already missed the shot. We know the rhythm of sports and the signs to look for when action is about to take place. You will be able to sit back and enjoy the game while we focus on capturing it.

We Use Fast Shutter Speeds

Live action photography is difficult to begin with, but it becomes even trickier with sport events. Why? Sports move incredibly fast—you have to have the equipment to keep up! Ever wonder why your images turn out blurry? That’s because the faster your subject is moving, the faster your shutter speed should be. We use fast shutter speeds and high quality equipment to freeze action and capture those “blink-of-an-eye” moments.

We Capture Quality Images

As a professional photography team, we focus on capturing quality images. Here are some principles that guide us when we photograph sports events.

Focus: Our images are in sharp focus.

Face: You can see the athlete’s facial expression and eyes conveying an emotion.

Action: An act of athleticism or emotional moment is taking place.

Equipment: The athlete is holding or interacting with a piece of equipment (the football, soccer ball, etc.).

Overshoot: You can never shoot too many images, but you can shoot too few! We make sure to capture an overabundance of images, so you have plenty of shots to choose from.

We Tell the Full Story

We consider sports photography a form of photojournalism. We want to tell the story that transpires before the crowd and capture it for all to see. Both teams matter to the story’s dialogue. We will capture and balance images between the home team and their rival to tell the full story of the game. We will get the shots that capture the highs and lows, the failures and victories, the struggle and triumph, and the game’s mood and atmosphere from beginning to end.

We Capture Action Off the Field, Too!

You can’t have action without reaction! Fans, coaches, mascots, parents, cheerleaders, and the student body are a part of the story, too. They reaffirm the event’s atmosphere, the emotional tone of the event, your school’s spirit, and the event’s significance.

We Stay Out of the Way

We will be on the sidelines getting the shots fans can’t get from the stands, but we will do so without interfering with the officials or distracting the athletes.

Professionalism is at the center of our services. As photographers, we know our presence at a sports event is a privilege. We aim to be as unobtrusive and discreet as possible while still getting the shots that matter. We respect the officials, coaches, athletes, staff, and audience at all times. We’ll get the action-packed moments you want without disturbing any aspects of the game.

The Epic Artwork Story

Epic Artwork & Photo all started in 2005 when Andrew Bourne was deployed to Iraq at the Syrian border. He needed a camera for intelligence reasons, so his wife Karen sent him a digital camera. He also photographed the life of the Iraqi people around him. After he returned to the states in 2006 and Karen had a chance to finally view all the images that he took, she realized that Andrew had captured beautiful and harrowing images that later earned him a gallery show.

While in Iraq, Andrew suffered a traumatic brain injury. When he was finally diagnosed in 2008, he was told he needed a hobby to help rework the neurons in his brain, so when he brought up doing live event photography to Karen, she encouraged him to do so. Not only was live event photography a tangible exercise in therapeutic mindfulness, but it also engaged the brain and encouraged the development of neuroplasticity.

Andrew and Karen Bourne are a traveling photography duo with incredible experience and passion. Check out Epic Artwork and Photo’s portfolio here to explore their live event photography and the images Andrew captured in Iraq.
