Shooting Basketball Portraits as the Big V Season Starts

April 10, 2024

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.


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.

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!
