Sports Photographer

With the caveat that many newspapers have culled their photography staffs in recent years, there’s still high demand in journalism for athletic photography — whether online or freelancing for assorted news outlets. These photographers prowl the sidelines and boundaries of various sporting events looking to capture and immortalize moments that are hard to detect with the naked eye. Sports photographs must have a keen awareness of their surroundings (so as never to be in the way of players) as well as a knowledge of when the most gripping opportunities for photos will arise during games.
