Details -

You will attend the Prep Hoops and Prep Girls Hoops Top 250 Expos hosted at Okun Fieldhouse in Shawnee, Kansas on October 16th, and you will be expected to be on-site beginning at 8:00 am.

Shoot times:

Boys headshots: 8am - 9am

Girls headshots: 2pm - 3pm

The main objective for this one-day event are headshots of each athlete in attendance, delivered the day of the event. During check-in, we will have each player come to you for a standard headshot. This way, each player will at least have one photo taken of them. Scroll to the bottom for instructions regarding the headshots. Share all photos with JPEG and PNG files only.

In regard to action photos during the gameplay, we don't need to capture the perfect play nor do we need many photos, but we are looking for clear photos of the front of players (Number and face visible). Anywhere from 20-50 total action shots during the day is more than sufficient. Maximize the downtime! Play stoppages and in-between the action photos are the #1 goal and lead to the best photos for our use. Light edits are recommended but photos don’t need to be perfect. 

You will be asked to share all photos with as soon as possible — and no later than the following day — via Google Drive or DropBox so that we can utilize them in a timely fashion.

Headshot Instructions

  1. Check in to the event, meet the director and get the backdrop that we provide.
  2. Taking the photo(s) (TAKE 2 PHOTOS of each participant)
    1. Photo 1: Make sure their number is visible and you can see their face.
      1. The purpose of this photo is to be able to identify who is who afterward for labeling purposes. On the headshot, you will be too close to the player to see their number, so this one is simply to identify the player.
    2. Photo 2 (Headshot):
      1. Capture from just below the logo on their jersey to several inches above the player
        1. Give their head some space
          1. The image can always be cropped tighter later if necessary. Don’t worry about including the lower torso and legs.
      2. Make sure the player is standing directly in front of the backdrop
      3. Make sure you are in a direct line with the player and backdrop so the backdrop does not appear to be at an angle
      4. Make sure you cannot see the stand for the backdrop in the photo

What we provide

  • We will pay you $300 by way of a direct deposit or paper check, as soon as we receive the photographs.
