virtual sports phoos

This photo started out as 9 individual photos, we then photoshopped
them together to make this Virtual Team Photo.

Team photos for youth sports and schools have traditionally been taken by grouping all the players and coaches together. Here at Roy Dressel Photography, we have developed a system that creates a team photo after the fact, never having to group the players together.

It’s called a Virtual Team Photo, and here is how it works.

We take the individual posed photo as usual, then a picture of the player standing straight ahead, looking at the camera. We will use that straight-ahead photo when we produce the virtual group. Doing it this way provides several advantages over the traditional grouping of players.

  1. Once we take a player or student’s photo, they are done. They don’t have to wait around to do the group photo.
  2. Every player looks their best in the virtual team photo. As you know, it’s not easy to get ten or more kids to all look good in that team photo, but the virtual team photo makes it easy to have everyone looking good.
  3. We save time. No more having to wait around for that one player who is late (and there is always one)
  4. We can include that one player who is late and did not make it in time. When we do a traditional team photo, there are times when we can’t wait for that one late player. Now, even if they don’t show up on photo day, they can come into our studio and be included.

If this sounds like something that you would like to offer to your league, give us a call or email us. Let’s make this year the best photo day ever with a virtual team photo from Roy Dressel Photography.

Roy talks about how we are going to do the Virtual Team Photo on photo day.
