Sport Images for Club Match Reports
Why is there a charge for clubs to use images?
Like any other professional service a club may use (plumber, electrician, coach, physiotherapist, caterer, marquee hire, DJ/band, gym instructor/personal trader etc.) the creation of high-quality sports images is a trade for which the services are chargeable.
In the case of ‘services’ that generally means the use of images.
The charges for images are based upon:
- The skill, experience and knowledge of the photographer to capture the high-quality sport images
- Post processing and image editing time
- Professional cameras and lenses
- Image editing computer and software
- Image storage (terrabytes per season)
- Travel time and costs
- along with the other costs associated with running a small business.
