Why should I pay for SPORTDAD photos if I have my own camera?

There are a number of factors that differentiate SPORTDAD images from photos you might take with your iPhone or you own DSLR camera.

1. Experience - A top-of-the-line camera in the hands of an inexperienced photographer will get you inferior results. SPORTDAD photographers are professionals and are experienced at their craft.

2. Access - SPORTDAD has access to the field, court, pool, etc. that fans/parents typically don't.  Better vantage points make for better images.

3. Editing - Capturing the image in the camera is not the end of the process. A photo needs to be expertly edited in order to make it great.  SPORTDAD has extensive expertise using the industry's best photo editing tools.

But a picture is worth a thousand words, so click to see The SPORTDAD Difference that compares typical parents' images beside SPORTDAD images. Put down your camera, enjoy the game and leave the shooting to the professionals.

How do I buy photos?

If you pre-register to have images captured during an event, the images will be made available for download.  Easy!  Optional prints can be purchased by clicking the BUY PHOTO button and follow the prompts.

If you had not pre-registered, you may still buy images. Click on a photo and the click the green BUY PHOTO button in the corner of the screen.  If you want a digital download, click on the Download tab to see your options.

You can buy one or more photos.  If there is a bunch you like from a game/event, it could be more economical to download the entire album.

Can I download photos that display larger than what I see here?

Yes!  Small versions of images are shown on the website for preview.  Big, high-resolution files are available.

Will there be watermarks on the images I purchase?


What file size should I download?

You can buy digital downloads in two different file sizes. 

A 1Mpix image is fine for social media or emailing to Grandma.

An Original image is best for printing or for cropping.

Are there more photos than what is shown here?

Yes!  SPORTDAD shoots a lot of photos at each game/event.  If you are looking for more pictures of somebody, contact SPORTDAD

Can I request SPORTDAD come shoot at a specific game/event/tournament/meet?

Absolutely! Determine what budget you have in mind and send a note to info@sportdad.ca

How many photos will I get?

It depends on the event. At a typical game, we will take several hundred photographs, but not all are "keepers." We encourage people to focus on quality rather than quantity.  A few awesome images are far better than hundreds of mediocre ones.  

Is SPORTDAD insured?

Yes. We carry $2 million in commercial liability insurance. 

Does SPORTDAD shoot animals?

Yes, but only with a camera.  

Will SPORTDAD photograph my wedding?

No.  Unless it's in Bora Bora.   Then call.
