The bottom line of large sporting events is being pushed all the time. Sponsorship and grants are becoming scarcer.
So, what do you do when everyone wants a memory from your event but you can’t afford professional photographers?
Let’s look at an example of a large multi-day, multi-sport event in Australia – the Australian Masters Games (AMG).
AMG had 8,000 participants a day competing in 49 different sports in 60 different locations in South Australia’s capital city of Adelaide.
In previous years AMG budget allowed for 4 paid photographers to cover the games. Clearly, it was impossible to capture all participants given the extent of the games played and venues used. Therefore the photographers could only cover the editorial shots needed. Participants lost out on their photography memory of their participation in the games.
AMG teamed with GeoSnapShot to provide 32 talented local sports photographers to capture all the event action.
Importantly, these photographers were free to the event organiser. The photographers felt proud to be supporting such a prestigious event in their local area.
They photographed all events and provided great editorial and participant photography at a low price, giving every participant the opportunity to walk away with a photo memory from the games.
GeoSnapShot also provides a single place for participants to view and purchase all photos from the event and a single place for the editorial team to grab what they need for all the editorial and social posts.
GeoSnapShot provides a unique platform to support sports events of any size, anywhere in the world. Contact us.
