Sports Photography

Do you need a photographer to cover your sporting event or Portrait shots for sports players?

Shooting the action during a game is difficult, and if you want to capture a sport it is best to hire a San Diego sports photographer with experience. Doug Sooley Photography offers years of proven experience as a professional sports photographer in San Diego with a portfolio of shots from all areas of sports.

Sports portraits are our specialty and we can create stunning images as part of one-time shoot, a senior portrait package or part of a recruitment package. However, we really strive to go beyond the traditional and get something that is unique.

Whether you want whole-team or single-player photos, Doug Sooley Photography will produce the quality photos you need. Doug’s attention to detail combined with his creativity is the key to unlocking incredible action and still sports photos.


How Are Sports Photos Different from Portraits?

San Diego sports photos are very different than portraits. When a sports photographer shoots, he or she is often required to move around the sidelines, capture the action and include photos of the crowd. No matter what the sport, a good photographer gets it all with high-quality photos.
