Photograph basketball to improve your sports portfolio

South Carolina Gamecocks Women's Basketball

Men’s and women’s basketball seasons have started! This is a great chance to improve your experience with sports photography.

The J-school has an arrangement with the Athletic Dept. that students will photograph a women’s game before they can photograph a men’s game. That way you learn the ropes when there is a smaller crowd and fewer media. It is much better to start earlier in the season before conference games. There is very little room on the court for media, so it can be a rough place.

However, this year the women are ranked #2 in the country! This is a great team!

My classes should go to Blackboard > Assignments > Sports to see instructions for getting a media pass for a women’s game.

For a men’s game, confirm with me that you’ve photographed a women’s game, then I will work with you to authorize a pass.
