Why you can schedule great athlete portraits any time of day

Let's just be upfront about this - Sunset is prime time for elite athlete portraiture.

You've seen them in the portfolio. The color of the sky and clouds, the stadiums, the whole look. Ah-mazing.

However, it's super important to know -- the kind of stunning athlete portraits Creative Sports Photography makes can happen at any time of day.

Morning. Mid-Day. Cloudy. Doesn't matter.

Anytime of day works for great athlete portraits.

When I started CSP, it was critical for this service to deliver results at any time of day.

Why? Because you're busy. Way busy. Practices, games, tournaments ... it never seems to end.

You might only have time for an hour of athlete portraits at noon or 3 p.m. or at 5 p.m., which typically are challenging times of day when it comes to light and portraits.
