Before/During the Competition:
Pre-order photographs before your child skates and we will take a lot more images of your skater.
Skaters in Elements: With several skaters on the ice at the same time during Elements, we do not know who each skater is. When pre-ordering, please add a description of your skater in the Comments section. You may also want to tell the rink-side photographer which skater is yours.
You want to see the photos before you decide to purchase them. Understood. If you know that you want photographs of the skate, pre-ordering ensures that we take lots more images, increasing the chances we capture that perfect smile/jump/spin/etc.
What if you don't like the images? We give you your money back. No questions.
What should you purchase? Most people purchase the gallery, which includes all of the images we took of your skater during their program. You can also order prints now (or after you see the gallery) but pre-ordering the gallery ensures there are plenty of images to choose from.
How do you pre-order? Complete the order form (link below) and then pay at the SPORTDAD desk at the rink.
After the competition:
How/when you get your images: It takes us a few days to sort and edit the images after an event. The image galleries will be posted on the website a few days after the event.
No email notification required: No need to wait for an email to get your images. You will have the instructions in the confirmation email you received when you ordered the images.
Searching for images: The images should be tagged by the skater's name. The images will NOT be searchable on the web (Google, Bing, etc.) but are searchable on this website. For images of minors, their photos will have their first name and last initial only. Their full surname is not used for privacy reasons.
For those that pre-registered: Enter the password you created at registration to access your gallery. Click the yellow "Download" button and enter an email address. The website will zip up the images and send you a verification email with a link to the images in a couple minutes. Click that link to download the images to your computer.
Ordering prints: If you take the digital images somewhere to get printed, SPORTDAD does not guarantee the quality of the prints. We do however guarantee quality if SPORTDAD prints them. We print each image individually on a pro printer using high-quality lustre paper that is designed to last 200 years.
For those that ordered a single image or prints: Send a note to SPORTDAD with the skater's name and the image number(s) that you would like.
Didn't pre-order but now want images? Send a quick note to SPORTDAD indicating if you'd like the entire gallery, single image(s) and or prints. We will look to see if we have images of your skater.
Watermarks: Watermarks are removed when the images are purchased.
