However… if you are holding a sporting event such as a corporate 5-a-side competition or golf day or maybe your team has reached the Finals then you will want to have a record of the event for those who were there as well as those that couldn’t make it and I can take care of that for you. After covering a golf day, one client wrote “Stu quickly becomes part of the team at any event he photographs. Beautiful, creative pictures: it’s our members and guests who make the memories but it’s Stu who captures them for keeps”
Whatever the sport, there are always plenty of moments of humour, of trial and triumph as well as congratulation and commiseration. Each sport will have particular aspects that will govern how the photographer operates. With golf, tee shots and putting are critical moments so (as with the player) proper positioning and timing is essential; with equestrian events, the safety of horse and rider are paramount and so on.
