I shoot my son's 9U travel league games all the time. I just can't seem to get the money shots with my 5DMII. How is the best way to go about getting good action shots when you never know when they're coming???

these are great. I find the 2nd one a bit comical because that kids has got some long legs and arms and feet to boot!

Know the game your shooting, anticipate the action, and practice, alot!!!

Thanks, Vince! I do have access to the field but I'm kind of embarrassed to get out there. I guess I need to just get over it and get out there.

Are you doing any onsite printing or can purchase the pics at a later date.

Currently, I am only doing online orders, but I am actually ordering printers either today or tomorrow so that I can start doing onsite orders.

Thats great, sounds like a winner. Any idea what printers you are considering on getting? I have a Kodak 9810 I bought used and it works great, haven't had the opportunity to use it for any sporting events, but i'm sure it would perform well.

Yeah, I think I'm set on the Sony Sub-dyes. I going to get this one (external link) for 4x6 and 5x7 prints, and this one (external link) for 8x10s. I'm still considering a couple of Mitsubishi printers, but I have a friend (whose opinion I trust) who said the Sony performed great.

That one caught my eye also. He looks like my son, long limbs and shoes that could float a battleship. Nice photos.

Vince, how many more sales do you think you will get to justify the cost of the printers and the employees you will need to run them?

I've got tournaments lined up that will have upwards of 800 kids. None of my tournaments have less than 500 as of now. So depending on the tournaments my individual tournament costs (photogs, techs, paper, ribbons etc.) could be covered anywhere from as low as $700 in sales. The bigger tournament the more the money obviously. The larger equipment will pay itself off in time, but that cost will initially be absorbed by my overall business.

On another note, I'm going to buy the printers anyways for portraits, T&Is, etc. Currently, I use Mpix Pro and they charge me 1.99 for an 8x10, $1.09 for 5x7s, and $.69 for 4x6s. Comparatively, cost per print with my own printers will be around .15 for 4x6s, .20 for 5x7s, and less than .50 for 8x10s. So if I keep my current pricing, I will already be making between .40 and $1.50 more per print. I probably won't even offer 4x6s, but that's not the point. Considering I print upwards of 200 prints a weekend during a tournament (according to my website), .40 is a signigicant amount of money.

Important note also, I am not spending a penny that I do not have. No debt. No credit. I am letting the business grow at its own rate by using cash.

My son plays in 14U league, and I’m shooting with a 30D griped and a 70-200 2.8 non IS, with a mono pod at times. What advice can you give me to shoot and get the sharpest shot i can get with my gear? Now these kids are pitching at about 70 mph, I do get on the field but it can be hair rising at time. Your input we be greatly appreciated.
