At check-in campers will get their individual photo taken on a ProCamps step and repeat banner. They will hold the ball and take one photo, then they will tell the assistant their name into a tape recorder that is running and then proceed into camp. **If an assistant with a tape recorder is not at your camp just take one photo of each camper and there is no need to record their name or order.
Please adjust accordingly to have the photos look as close as possible to the examples below.
We will need one photo of every camper so speed is also important.
Sponsor Area Photos
Before camp begins, our sponsor area is open to all parents, campers, and family members. The key focal points are:
- Participation in sponsor booths
- Capturing crowds at sponsor table/tents
- Posing with Products
- Generic Setup
Our All-Up is the central location in which camp announcements are made, awards are given out, and the Host Athlete speaks. Key focal points are:
- Size of Camp
- Sponsor signage/setup
- Sponsor Awards
Each camp we take team photos. The Athlete will sit in the chair, the coach will stand directly behind the athlete, and the campers will be on either side. In some cases, a Sponsor Sign will be placed in front of the campers as indicated below.
We will be printing these as 4x6 photos. Please plan to bring a separate memory card for the photos, so that we can immediately retrieve the pictures and print onsite.
One on One Photos
Campers have the opportunity to purchase a One-on-One photo with the Host Athlete. These will be printed and signed on site as an 8x10.
Action shots should be taken of the Host Athlete interacting with the campers. Best effort to get a picture of every child interacting with the Host Athlete.
The largest amount of time during camp is spent taking these candid/action photos. Notice in the samples below that the photographer is positioning themselves to get a good angle of the campers face along with the athlete. This will help with the facial recognition process. Also notice that the ideal photos are with both the athlete and camper before the main "action" happens. A photo with camper and athlete is what we want instead of one at the end of the play when the camper is by themselves. Sitting at a drill station capturing the athlete interact with one camper after the next is definitly ok to do.
Below the random camp samples is a grouping from one specific camp showing the variety of different shots possible at one single camp. If the athlete is interacting with a camper we want to capture it, getting in a groove with the right angles to prduce shots like this will help early on.
Local media is encouraged to visit camp and cover the event. There is a media scrum in which the athlete answers interview questions. Key focal points are:
- Capturing the amount of media at camp
- Good photos of Host Athlete in front of Step and Repeat
Sponsors are invited out to the event. Photos of the sponsors with the Host Athlete will be taken at this time.
Up to 20 campers and a guest will have access to the luncheon where they have lunch and a Q&A with the Host Athlete. Key focal points are:
- One on One photos (ensure their credential is readable)
- Capture elements, signage, campers with autograph items, etc
- Q&A Session - need good pictures of both the athlete answering questions and the campers asking questions
Green Screen Photos
Stock photos need to be taken of the athlete at camp for future use. Photos should be taken with a backdrop as the background. These can be taken at the Media Scrum, Luncheon, or Sponsor Reception.
The athlete will hi-five every camper on site. We need photos of them with each child, so rapid fire when this takes place.
Photos of campers going through the lunch line are important to our lunch partners.
