In 3 hours we managed to get through 'media day' style images with multiple images of each player, and also player portraits and team photos. 

  MelbourneSportsPhotography-6923MelbourneSportsPhotography-6923 MelbourneSportsPhotography-6908MelbourneSportsPhotography-6908

It was a lot of fun to work with these talented footballers, and we hope the players enjoyed the experience. We have already seen some of the media day images on Northern Knights social media accounts, and look forward to seeing more.

The following weekend, Melbourne Sports Photography founder Craig Dingle got along to see the Under 18 girls in action in the Coates Talent League. 

MelbourneSportsPhotography-0173MelbourneSportsPhotography-0173 MelbourneSportsPhotography-9984MelbourneSportsPhotography-9984

Northern Knights had a very close game with Eastern Ranges that day, narrowly going down in a very hard fought game. We hope some good action photos helped ease the pain of a loss.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-9729MelbourneSportsPhotography-9729 We haven't seen the Under 18 boys play yet, but hope to later in the season.

For Northern Knights players and families, we delivered your team photos and player portraits to the club in the last week of April. The club will be distributing the prints to players.

All the best for your season Northern Knights! Fly high!

Shooting Basketball Portraits as the Big V Season Starts https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2024/4/shooting-basketball-portraits-as-the-big-v-season-starts The Big V and NBL1 basketball seasons are now underway in Victoria, and the Melbourne Sports Photography team have been busy shooting action images and player portraits.

Recently Melbourne Sports Photography founder, Craig Dingle, worked with Surfcoast Baketball's Dexter Graham. Craig and Dexter created images together last year in a studio setting, and this time combined on an outdoor court in St Kilda.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-8405MelbourneSportsPhotography-8405

The very bright sunshine made for some challenging lighting conditions. The challenge was met using high powered strobes which over power the sun to create some dramatic portraits.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-8384MelbourneSportsPhotography-8384 MelbourneSportsPhotography-7976MelbourneSportsPhotography-7976

Craig and Dexter seemed to really enjoy the shoot - it might not be the last time we see them work together! All the best for the Big V season Dexter, see you next time!

Hawthorn Cycling's Hanging Rock Handicap https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2024/3/hawthorn-cyclings-hanging-rock-handicap It was Melbourne Sports Photography's pleasure to be involved in the 2024 Hanging Rock Handicap cycling race. This is a women's only cycling event hosted by the Hawthorn Cycling Club, and for the second year Melbourne Sports Photography founder Craig Dingle headed to Hanging Rock to photograph the event.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-2399MelbourneSportsPhotography-2399 The weather on race day in 2024 was terrific. A cool morning with fog over Hanging Rock gave way to a warm sunny day ideal for fast racing.

A field of around 70 set off in a series of groups based on their cycling ability - designed so that ideally all the groups come together approaching the finish.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-2919MelbourneSportsPhotography-2919 MelbourneSportsPhotography-5912MelbourneSportsPhotography-5912

The handicappers are likely to be pretty happy with their efforts in 2024 with the 'scratch group' of the strongest cyclists not quite catching the other cyclists. 

Thank you again to Hawthorn Cycling for asking Melbourne Sports Photography to photograph the event. If you would like to see all of Craig's images from the day, head to Hawthorn Cycling's Facebook page. 

To Hawthorn Cycling and all the participants, congratulations on a great event. We hope to see you again next year.

Creative Sports Portraits for Media Days https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2024/2/creative-sports-portraits-for-media-days An area of focus for the Melbourne Sports Photography team already this year is expanding our creative portrait offerings. These are available for club media days, teams, and individuals. 

Recently Kaitlyn joined us as we tested out options including using new backgrounds built by the Melbourne Sports Photography team, and using light wands to create light trails.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-4361MelbourneSportsPhotography-4361 MelbourneSportsPhotography-4378MelbourneSportsPhotography-4378

These images are really unique with every image different from each other. The effect is created in camera using coloured light wands to create patterns and shapes behind the subject. Here we used plenty of pink to match Kaitlyn's outfit. The colours can be tailored to match or compliment the colour of your club.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-4145 (2)MelbourneSportsPhotography-4145 (2) Bring on the gold background! This image was created using a background which Phil and Craig built. While it's a little bulky - making transport a challenge (!) - once on site it is quick and easy to assemble. The gold colour is going to look striking when players are in their playing uniform. We also have a silver version of this background and are looking for a club to try it out on.

If you'd like to discuss options for Melbourne Sports Photography's media days and creative portraits, please make contact with Craig. Details are on the contact page here on the Melbourne Sports Photography website. Have your club stand out from the pack with creative sports portraits.

Melbourne's Summer of Tennis https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2024/1/melbournes-summer-of-tennis Melbourne's summer of tennis is well underway and Melbourne Sports Photography's Craig Dingle and Sally Jacob were both on hand to shoot the Kooyong Classic in the second week of January.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-2332MelbourneSportsPhotography-2332 MelbourneSportsPhotography-2549MelbourneSportsPhotography-2549

This is one of the lead up events prior to the Australian Open, where the world's top tennis players seek valuable match practice and the opportunity to acclimatize to the Australian summer.

This year the 3 days of the Kooyong Classic were all warm days - in the mid 20 degrees celsius up to the early 30's. The players definitely got a touch of summer heat and the type of weather which is common for the Australian Open.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-1397MelbourneSportsPhotography-1397Sir Andy Murray in action at the 2024 Kooyong Classic

The standard of tennis was strong, and the event was well supported by Melbourne tennis fans.

Photographers have access to one side of the court, being able to sit close to court side to capture the action.

If you are in Melbourne next January, consider heading down to the Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club on Glenferrie Road to enjoy some top action prior to the Australian Open. And look out for the Melbourne Sports Photography team sitting courtside!

If you are considering contacting us to inquire about team photos, please do so sooner rather than later. We only have a small number of vacancies left between February and the end of June 2024.

MeltonWomenMeltonWomen

When you reach out it will be helpful to know:

* what are your preferred dates 

* how many teams and players you would like photographed

* whether there are also officials (coaches and team managers) and how many

* your preferred location

MelbourneSportsPhotography-2-2MelbourneSportsPhotography-2-2

Our studio equipment is portable and we can come to you for the shoot. We will need a good size indoor space, like a hall or club rooms. 

Once you have provided team lists and player details there is only a small amount of effort required by your club - getting the players, coaches and team managers in the right place at the right time! We aim to make the other steps in the process easy - starting with an online ordering facility, right through to delivering prints in individual and team packs.

Reach out to book in your club team photo session. Details are on the Contact page here on the Melbourne Sports Photography website.

Shooting Studio Dance Images https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2023/12/shooting-studio-dance-images In addition to photographing action sports and team photos, the team at Melbourne Sports Photography have spent a good part of the year meeting the demand for creative sports portraits. This has included a range of sports - footy, basketball, dance, and martial arts - and we are keen for that list of sports to grow!

This style of photography is becoming increasingly popular, reflecting how important sport is to the athlete, and also enabling creative lighting effects that are not possible "in game".

Dance portraits are very popular and we have completed two recent assignments in this space.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-0022MelbourneSportsPhotography-0022 First was a shoot with dancer Lisa Tan. This was based at a local hall in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne which Melbourne Sports Photography often use for this type of shoot. The second was with Comm23 at the Australian Allstar Cheer Federation Nationals Championships which were held at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre. 

If you are interested in creating some fascinating portraits for your sport, please make contact. Our equipment is mobile so that we can do these shoots anywhere that there is a good sized indoor space.

Shooting Dance Images with Vibe Studios https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2023/10/shooting-dance-images-with-vibe-studios August and September brought lots of winter sports grand finals. The Melbourne Sports Photography team have been busy photographing basketball, football, and hockey grand finals - capturing all the action and the celebrations. In addition, we have been shooting a series of studio images including a recent session with the team from Vibe Studios.

Photographing Melbourne Fitness Model Rei https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2023/8/photographing-melbourne-fitness-model Melbourne Sports Photography's Craig and Phil had a fun and productive shoot with fitness model Rei - with the team collaborating on unique images which demonstrate strength, fitness and vitality.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-0242MelbourneSportsPhotography-0242

For this style of shoot we use mobile studio equipment. If you have a suitable size space, we can come to you. Or if you prefer, we can organise a venue.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-0147MelbourneSportsPhotography-0147

Studio strobes are used to create the lighting effects. We use both battery powered and mains powered strobes, giving us flexibility on where we use the lights. For this shoot we were utilising an indoor hall with multiple power points, and so were primarily using mains powered lights. Our key light was battery powered making it easy to re position the light through out the shoot without power cables being in the way.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-0292MelbourneSportsPhotography-0292

Different colour effects can be achieved with the strobes complimenting the subject's wardrobe.

Creating Cool Sports Portraits https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2023/7/creating-cool-sports-portraits The team at Melbourne Sports Photography are getting more and more questions about sports portrait sessions which produce the style of images shown in this blog post. Here's some answers in advance of your questions!

1. What type of space is needed for this type of shoot?

This style of shoot needs a reasonable size indoor venue. The two images shown here were shot in a church hall, where Phil and Craig had one 'station' set up to shoot football themed images, and another 'station' for basketball themed images. 

If you have a hall or club rooms with some open space, we will be able to do this style of shoot on your premises. Alternatively, an indoor court or stadium is ideal. The Melbourne Sports Photography team's equipment is mobile and we can come to you. 

MelbourneSportsPhotography-5009MelbourneSportsPhotography-5009

2. What sports can you cater for?

Our normal answer to this question is 'all sports'! We do our best to theme the environment to your sport - for example, artificial grass to simulate the playing field for football, soccer, hockey, cricket, rugby, rugby league etc ... and lino to simulate the wooden floors used in basketball, netball, volleyball and other indoor sports.

We haven't done a sports portrait shoot for swimming yet, but we already have some ideas on how to do it!

If you are thinking about how this style can be adapted for your sport, please get in touch via the contact page here on the Melbourne Sports Photography website.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-5036MelbourneSportsPhotography-5036

3. How long does this shoot take?

For an individual athlete this style of shoot can be done in 45 minutes to 1 hour using a combination of different lighting techniques and poses. To have a discussion about how this could work for you, give Craig a call on 0419 010993.

4. Can you photograph teams in this style?

Yes. This style of shoot can be adapted to photograph teams, with both small groups and individual portraits. There are some practical limitations on numbers but it is a lot of fun to work with groups of people in this environment. We will aim to use coloured lights to compliment your clubs colours and add some pizzazz to your portraits!

Depending on the size of your team, it's likely to be a 90-120 minute shoot to cover your team and individual players.

5. What about school sports?

Add some flair to your school sports images! This style of shoot works very well in environments where we can photograph multiple sports in a single shoot. The Melbourne Sports Photography team can set up themed 'stations' flexible enough to cover a variety of sports. If you are thinking about how this style can work for your school, please make contact.

We hope this has covered some of your initial questions. For more details please use the Contact page here on the Melbourne Sports Photography website.

Melbourne Sports Photography Returning to Melton Phoenix Football Club https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2023/5/returning-to-melton-phoenix-football-club May and June is a very busy time for winter season sports team photos. The season is well underway, teams are settled, and there's some urgency to get team photo sessions complete, prints sorted and delivered before the end of the season looms.

This year the Melbourne Sports Photography team have been working with a series of new clients. In recent weeks it's been great to get to know the people at South East Melbourne Magic basketball club, and more recently, South Springvale Football Club.

MeltonWomenMeltonWomen And among the new clients, it's great to reconnect with clients that Melbourne Sports Photography has worked with before. This week Craig Dingle and Sally Jacob are back at Melton Phoenix Football Club. Craig and Sally shot their team photos last year, and have already commented on the growth in numbers, particularly in the juniors. The first day of shooting was completed yesterday, and the second day is on tomorrow.

While we enjoy working with our new clients, it's terrific when clients invite us back year after year. Thanks for having us again in 2023 Michelle, Danni, and all the players at Melton Phoenix Football Club.

Thanks Canon Experience Store https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2023/3/thanks-canon-experience-store The Melbourne Sports Photography team have a significant investment in cameras, lighting and other photographic equipment.

Recently, Craig and Phil, made several visits to the Canon Experience Store in South Melbourne. This was a very positive experience. We had one lens and camera serviced at modest cost and both are now performing as new. The more significant development was the time spent investigating the new range of Canon mirror-less cameras and RF lenses. The technology developments in mirror-less cameras are significant and all the major camera manufacturers are moving to mirror-less and away from DSLR's.

MelbourneSportsPhotography1MelbourneSportsPhotography1 The jump to the new technology does come at a cost. The very positive part of this experience was the terrific way Rob and the team at the Canon experience store patiently and expertly answered Craig and Phil's questions, and demonstrated the benefits of the mirror-less technology.

If you are thinking about buying new photographic equipment - consider a trip to the Canon Experience Store in South Melbourne. It's great to be able to try out the equipment before you purchase, and to be able to discuss issues with an expert team.

Thank you Rob and the team at Canon Experience Store in South Melbourne. There's now one very fancy mirror less camera and 2 RF lenses in the Melbourne Sports Photography stable! Look out for them at our next event.

Getting Started with Basketball Photography: Tips from a Pro https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2023/2/getting-started-with-basketball-photography-tips-from-a-pro Melbourne Sports Photography founder and photographer, Craig Dingle, has shot a lot of basketball. Last year, he photographed everything from the Juniors through to the World Cup in Sydney. We ask him for some pointers for people starting out in basketball photography. Here is what he has to say. 

Photographing basketball games can be a thrilling experience, especially if you're just starting out. With fast-paced action and exciting moments, capturing the essence of the game can be challenging. However, with the right skills and equipment, you can create stunning images that showcase the athleticism and grace of the players. Here are some tips to help you get started with basketball photography.

  1. Get the Right Equipment

As with any type of photography, having the right equipment is crucial. For basketball, you will need a camera with a fast autofocus system and a high-quality lens. A zoom lens that covers a range of focal lengths is a great option, as it will allow you to capture wide shots of the court as well as zoom in on the action. A fast lens with a large aperture will also allow you to shoot in low light conditions, which is common in many indoor arenas.

  1. Find the Best Shooting Position

The position from which you shoot can greatly affect the quality of your images. Ideally, you should be seated courtside or behind one of the baskets. This will allow you to be close to the action and capture the players' expressions and movements. If you're not able to get a courtside seat, consider shooting from a high angle, such as the upper deck. This will give you a bird's eye view of the court and can provide a unique perspective.

  1. Get to Know the Game

It's important to understand the rules and dynamics of basketball in order to anticipate the action. Familiarize yourself with the players, their positions, and their strengths and weaknesses. This will help you anticipate where the action is going to be and capture the most exciting moments.

  1. Experiment with Settings

Basketball is a fast-paced sport, so it's important to have a fast shutter speed to freeze the action. A shutter speed of 1/800th of a second or faster is recommended. Additionally, you may need to adjust your aperture and ISO settings to get the right exposure, depending on the lighting conditions. Don't be afraid to experiment with different settings to see what works best for you.

In conclusion, basketball photography can be a lot of fun and a great way to challenge yourself as a photographer. By getting the right equipment, finding the best shooting position, getting to know the game, and experimenting with your settings, you'll be well on your way to capturing stunning images that showcase the excitement and athleticism of the sport.

How Can Junior Sports Clubs Benefit from Professional Photography https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2023/1/how-can-junior-sports-clubs-benefit-from-professional-photography Junior sports clubs can greatly benefit from professional photography in a number of ways. Here are four ways that professional photography can help junior sports clubs:

1. Promoting the club: Professional photographs of the young athletes in action can be used to promote the club, its players, and its events to potential members and fans. High-quality images can be used in printed materials such as brochures and posters, as well as online through the club's website and social media channels. This can help attract new players and families to the club.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-2124MelbourneSportsPhotography-2124 2. Recruiting new coaches: Professional photographs of the young athletes and their coaches can be used to showcase the talent and skill of the team. This can help attract new coaches and volunteers to the club, who can help to develop the young players and improve the quality of the club.

3. Building a sense of community: Professional photographs can capture important moments, games and events, which can be used to create albums, scrapbooks and other keepsakes for the club's members, players and families. This can help build a sense of community and belonging within the club, and create lasting memories for the young players and their families.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-2958MelbourneSportsPhotography-2958

4. Creating a visual record: Professional photographs can create a visual record of the club's activities, which can be used to promote the club and connect with the audience. This can be especially important for junior sports clubs, who may not have the same level of media coverage as senior clubs.

In conclusion, professional photography can be an invaluable tool for junior sports clubs, helping them to attract new players, coaches, and families, build a sense of community, create lasting memories, and promote the club. By investing in professional photography, junior sports clubs can ensure that they have a high-quality visual record of their activities, which can be used to showcase their achievements and connect with their audience.

Team Photos with Basketball Hawthorn https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2022/12/team-photos-with-basketball-hawthorn It is exciting for the team at Melbourne Sports Photography to be working with Basketball Hawthorn again this season. This is the 4th year we have partnered with Basketball Hawthorn to shoot team photos and individual portraits for the Hawthorn Magic teams.

Last weekend we completed the photo shoot. It was super to see lots of smiling faces among the magicians, who are now well underway with grading for the 2023 season. The Melbourne Sports Photography team are now working on editing those images.

The 2023 team photo design is exciting and different to what we have done for Magic before. We will be busy over the Christmas and New Year break and expect prints to be ready prior to your first game in the new year.

Thanks for having us again this year Basketball Hawthorn and Hawthorn Magic! All the best for the 2023 VJBL season.

Photographing the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers Basketball https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2022/7/photographing-the-fiba-world-cup-qualifiers-basketball June finished and July started with an exciting assignment for the Melbourne Sports Photography team - covering the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers at John Cain Arena. The tournament featured teams from Australia, China, Chinese Taipei, and Japan.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-2375MelbourneSportsPhotography-2375 There was some terrific basketball across multiple games. It was great to see the games well attended and the support for the team from China, with several international stars, was notable.

The Australian Boomers were naturally popular with the home crowd and performed well across the series. They were undefeated.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-2-2MelbourneSportsPhotography-2-2 For the Melbourne Sports Photography team, our photographers are possibly the only ones in Melbourne who have shot under 12's through to national teams in basketball over the last 3 months. The game is the same, but the photography challenge is quite different, and we have enjoyed it all!

Many people have commented that they like the images from the FIBA World Cup Qualifier tournament. Thank you for the support!

Virtual Team Photos https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2021/9/virtual-team-photos Hello Melbourne. Lock down number 6 rolls on, and the team here at Melbourne Sports Photography are looking forward to the return of community sport! Let's hope it is soon.

Like many of our partner clubs, we are changing to meet the unusual circumstances brought about by the coronavirus pandemic. Our latest challenge has been helping clubs with team photos when we are not physically able to get people together. Out of this, the concept of 'virtual team photos' has been born. They will be a unique record of the club's history in a remarkable time.

We are currently working on virtual team photos for our first two clubs. If your club would like to explore this option, please get in touch via the contact page here on the Melbourne Sports Photography website.

Getting Through Melbourne Stage 4 Restrictions https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2020/8/getting-through-melbourne-stage-4-restrictions Hello Melbourne! We are past half way through the 6 week level 4 restriction period. Hooray! Let's hope the virus is under control and there is no need to extend or reintroduce level 4 restrictions, and that we can get back to sports soon.

For those that have been in contact - thank you for reaching out to the team at Melbourne Sports Photography. We have been significantly impacted by the absence of sports, as have many other businesses. We briefly thought we might be starting shooting junior football just a few weeks ago, and 5 days before the delayed season start that all came to an abrupt end. We're sure that would have been very disappointing for the players, as it was for us. We hope the short term absence of sport helps to contribute to the long term health and well being of the community.

If there is anything we can do to help you, please let us know. In the meantime, enjoy the half time break, and be encouraged we are into the second half of the level 4 restrictions. Keep smiling. Stay healthy. Sport will be back.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-3838MelbourneSportsPhotography-3838Enjoy the half time break of level 4 restrictions.

Hawthorn Magic 2020 Team Photos https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2020/5/hawthorn-magic-2020-team-photos A lot has happened since the Melbourne Sports Photography team shot the Hawthorn Magic team photos at the end of February and the beginning of March 2020. Melbourne Sports Photography post production team had a busy few weeks editing images and organizing prints, while at the same time the coronavirus impacted sports and there has been no basketball. The good news is the restrictions in Victoria are easing, and each day we are getting closer to community sport returning. Hooray!

More good news for Hawthorn Magic players and families - we delivered your prints to Basketball Hawthorn a few weeks ago, and they are now ready to be collected from Basketball Hawthorn office by your Team Manager. 

If you have any questions contact Melbourne Sports Photography via the Contact page here on the website.

Navigating Challenging Times https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2020/3/navigating-challenging-times Like many businesses, Melbourne Sports Photography is facing challenging times due to the impact of the coronavirus. We shoot large sporting events and tournaments - all of which are currently postponed or cancelled. Our pipeline of events booked in the diary has completely evaporated. How long will this be for? We wish we knew (!) and are taking steps to make sure Melbourne Sports Photography is there for you when sport returns.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-1751MelbourneSportsPhotography-1751 In the very short term we are still available to work with individual athletes, where we can observe the government protocols around social distancing and making sure we play our part in 'flattening the curve'. We have time on our hands, please get in touch if we can help you.

We can also provide access to older images we have shot. If you are looking for a present for the athlete in your life, there are currently very good deals available on canvas prints and other products. Drop us an email if you would like us to re-open an old gallery, or if we can help with your print products.

We recognise Melbourne Sports Photography is not the only business going through significant challenges. We wish you good health and best wishes in this challenging time.

Making a Splash in Diving Photography https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2020/2/making-a-splash-in-diving-photography This month the Melbourne Sports Photography team shot a diving event for the first time. The event was the Diving Victoria pennants week 4 competition held at Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre at Albert Park.

Diving is a spectacular sport to photograph, with the moves in the early part of the dive similar to gymnastics, and then extreme speed as the diver approaches the water! It is a sport which is exciting and challenging to photograph. Well done for the images produced Phil, Sally and Craig including some spectacular images looking down from above at the divers.

If you or your family member was competing, the gallery password is available from Diving Victoria.

The gallery will be open until March 4, 2020. We hope you enjoy the images.

Thanks Canon Professional Services https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2020/1/thanks-canon-professional-services At Melbourne Sports Photography, using top quality equipment and keeping that gear in good working order is important to producing high quality sports images. After a nice Christmas break we have started 2020 with a busy January photographing basketball, tennis, and commercial assignments with Melbourne Sports Centres and an international sports shoe manufacturer.  

MelbourneSportsPhotography-8081MelbourneSportsPhotography-8081

Recently Melbourne Sports Photography team members, Phil and Craig, headed down to the Canon Experience Store in South Melbourne. Canon Professional Services are based there and they did a fantastic job of cleaning camera sensors while Phil and Craig waited. It's reassuring to have excellent partners like Canon Professional Services able to provide support so quickly. We're photographing this week's sports with clean sensors, confidence the image quality is excellent, and knowing we have great partners to help. Thanks Canon Professional Services.

11,381 More Reasons to Like the Southern Peninsula Basketball Tournament https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2019/11/11-381-more-reasons-to-like-the-southern-peninsula-basketball-tournament Last weekend the Melbourne Sports Photography team joined thousands of young basketballers at the Southern Peninsula Tournament, and had a terrific time over Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Congratulations to the Southern Peninsula Tournament team for a smoothly run event and a great weekend of basketball. 

With over 400 teams and 4000+ players it was a big effort for the Melbourne Sports Photography team to shoot, edit and upload the images. While we didn't cover every team (sorry!) we did shoot nearly 200 games.

This evening our post production team have smiles on their faces as they have edited 11,381 action images over the last 4 days, and loaded them onto the Melbourne Sports Photography website. 

For a link to the gallery click Southern Peninsula Basketball Tournament 2019 Galleries

(The gallery password was sent out last week by the Tournament organizers - please check your email as you'll need the password to view the images).

Note, the gallery will be open until 12 December 2019.

Thank you again to the tournament officials and all the people the Melbourne Sports Photography team met over the three days. We hope to see you again next year.

Shooting with No Limits Basketball https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2019/11/shooting-with-no-limits-basketball Sally and Craig, from Melbourne Sports Photography, recently had the opportunity to work with No Limits Basketball. They spent the afternoon creating action images for the No Limits Basketball Academy players, the website, and the No Limits Basketball social media accounts. 

MelbourneSportsPhotography-9174No Limits Basketball What is No Limits Basketball?

From their website "Our passion is helping players reach their goal. We set out to create advanced skills training for basketballers of any level. Most trainers run through drills and skills they can already do. The players might get in a great 'workout' but won't be adding any new skills to their game. Improving your skills is a mixture of knowledge and practice. We supply both in a way that fast tracks your development, taking you to the next level fast!"

Where is No Limits Basketball? 

No Limits Basketball premises are in Box Hill South, Melbourne. This is where the No Limits Basketball Academy operates. In addition, they run school holiday basketball camps at a range of locations around Melbourne. Check out their website for more information.

MelbourneSportsPhotography-8248No Limits Basketball Thank you Pete and team for making Sally and Craig welcome, and for giving Melbourne Sports Photography the opportunity to create action images for No Limits Basketball. 

All the best for your Academy, Camps, and the upcoming USA Tour.

Southern Peninsula Junior Basketball Tournament 2019 https://www.melbournesportsphotography.com.au/blog/2019/10/southern-peninsula-junior-basketball-tournament-2019 This year the Southern Peninsula Junior Basketball Tournament is being held over the weekend of 16 & 17 November, and Melbourne Sports Photography will be there to photograph the action.

What is the Southern Peninsula Junior Basketball Tournament?

The Southern Peninsula Tournament is an annual event held in November, just before the start of the VJBL rep basketball season. Last year the tournament featured 440 teams and was held at 14 stadiums and 34 courts around the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. Those numbers speak for themselves - it is a big tournament and a great way for teams to have a hit out before the rep season begins.

2019 will be bigger than last year, with more than 4000 players competing across 15 stadiums and 35 courts. 

Melbourne Sports Photography will have a team of photographers to shoot 100+ games and 150+ teams across all divisions.

Southern Peninsula Tournament 2019 2Southern Peninsula Tournament 2019 2

Where Can we Find the Images?

The images will be available on the Melbourne Sports Photography website in the week after the tournament (we are aiming to have all images uploaded by Thursday 21 November 2019). They will be in password protected galleries based on age group. The password will be emailed to you by the tournament organizers.

What Can we Buy?

Images will be available to purchase as digital downloads and physical prints. Prices start at $8, and our most popular product - the high resolution digital download - will be just $10.

Will all Teams and Players be Covered?

Unfortunately, Melbourne Sports Photography won't be able to photograph everyone due to the scale of the tournament. We expect to cover 100+ games and 150+ teams across the weekend.

Look out for the Melbourne Sports Photography team at one of your games, and have a great, action packed weekend.
