About Us

Paul Yates, Founder & Photographer

Early photography was just a hobby, then semi-pro evolved into full-time experience, with hard-earned money paying for upgraded gear in the tens of thousands... the only way to get it right. Add experience with supportive clients and hundreds of hours of work, countless photo sessions and over years you become credible, and it becomes what you do. 

Career Overview

Photographers are described as persons who 'use their technical expertise, creativity, and composition skills to produce and preserve images that visually tell a story or record an event." 

The Real World

It's an accurate description, but a little dry. The real world of professional sport photography is challenging, with grinding hours and low wages. It's often less than glamourous, and humility is the key to survival. 

The Now

It's a great profession and rewarding beyond measure. You enter people's lives as a stranger collecting digital history. The second the shutter clicks, time stops. Cherished memories of who we were and what we did in that split second years ago become part of the registry of a journey through the time of our lives.

Share the big news

We take photos to market, sell, post, create, print, delete, archive, or give away to support youth sports. When you collect over 2 million images during 10 years of constant shooting you gain valuable experience about digital photography. We'll share our vast experience when working for you.

Offering Our Services

It would be our pleasure to work with you. Tournaments, team posters, special assignments, creative compositions, fundraisers, profiles and marketing sessions are where we work. Give us a call. If it's a big project, we'll bring any number of select contract photographers to get the job done. If it's small and simple, we'll keep it the same.
