The next level is looking for you. What will they see?

The next level is looking for you.


Coaches, future teammates, recruiters - What do they see when they look at you?


When they check out your Instagram or TikTok, are they finding the person they want to be their next great player?

Or do they move on to the other players they met?

Have confidence knowing - when you meet a coach or recruiter at a tournament or skills camp - you have professional-quality visuals when the next level checks you out online.

Images that showcase who you are and why you're passionate about your sport.

Welcome to the Creative Sports Photography experience.

Every athlete portrait session with Creative Sports Photography is personalized so you can enjoy the experience. The session itself should be a great memory.

The Real You

CSP's focus is on connecting with you, understanding who you are and why you love playing. That connection is the most important part of any portrait experience.

You'll have a whole gallery's-worth of images with CSP's signature lighting and portrait method available no where else. We also provide high-quality print products to make everyone envious.

I'm Dave Pidgeon, Creative Sports Photography's owner and chief image maker. I'm a former athlete, a youth sports coach, a parent, and a creative portrait lighting expert.

Fed up with out-dated and meaningless team picture days, I started CSP to elevate what it means to to enjoy an athlete portrait experience.

"Never have I come across a photographer that has so much passion for not only what he does but for the sport and player in general. A talent behind the lens but more importantly a friendly person."
