Default Sports Photographer Needed in Louisville

This is my first post and I'm not sure if this is permissible but.....

I photograph youth sports action photos. I'm doing a basketball tournament in Louisville on March 28th, 29th and 30th. I'm looking for some one with Canon equipment (preferably 20D and up) and 70-200 2.8L lens. Plus experience in photographing basketball and able to show me samples. We photograph action of each team and print on site.

If you meet the above requirements please either post here of e-mail me at steve@stevesheldon.com.

The tournament runs from 5pm Friday to 9pm and then SAturday from about 8am to 9pm and then Sunday 8am to about 6 or 7pm. Let me know your availablity. THese times are estimates and depends on the scheduling of the tourney.

Of course, you get paid (depends upon equip., experience, etc.) plus you get to wear a cool t-shirt that says 'Official Photo Guy' on the back. If your a lady I'll get one made up that says 'Official Photo Gal' or what ever you want.

THanks.

Anyone ever take an action shot in basketball where the athlete wasn't making such a funny face? Great pics Adam, but I was laughing the entire time I was looking at them.

People make some really weird faces in all sports. Men and women!

Those were all with the 70-200. Tv was 1/640~1/800, ISO was 1600~2000. I honestly think the lights change at some point in the game...

OK, I've tried calling Adam on his cell phone and he hasn't returned my calls. He told me by PM that he would be doing this for me and now I'm getting nervous. I also see that he is banned from the forums.

I need Louisville area sports photographers for Friday night and Saturday. Read the 1st post to see what I need. If you are available and have the equipment please send me a PM or e-mail me at steve@stevesheldon.com.

THanks.

Just wanted everyone to know that Adam e-mailed me. Told me that his mother had a stroke and he has dropped everything to be at her side.
