i normally just wear something comfy. i am by no means "professional" though...
i guess it depends more on what im shooting.
for paintball, whatever gets me shot the least
for football/band on friday night, its mostly black because my schools colors are black and gold

i did have my own thing that i always wore... it kindof stood out a little though. see if you can spot me

I asked the same question here:
https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1065334
about this guy.

If this guy likes to get "up close and personal" with his subjects while photographing them...not to mention BLOCK THE VIEW of the audience, I think his next "assignment" should be to photograph the INDIANAPOLIS 500...FROM RIGHT ON THE TRACK!! (Wonder if he'd have to change his shorts as cars zip by him at 200 M.P.H.)

Talk about being inconsiderate of other people around you.:rolleyes:


Photographers do it in 1/1,000th of a second...but the memory lasts forever! ;)

I try to wear just black so I'm neutral. I shoot high school and youth sports and never wear
"my" home teams apparel or cheer for "my" team. Just last week to saw the complete opposite.
I just moved away to the other side of the field. Luckily, it was overcast so no issues with
positioning to deal with the sun. I could still hear them yelling from the other side.

Me shooting Bengals at Texans playoff game last year.

Generally a polo and khaki shorts. Jeans if it is cold, which it isn't because I live in Houston.

If I wear a team logo, it will be for something that is irrelevant to the sport. So I would wear my alma mater's logo at an NFL game or an NFL logo at an NCAA game, but I generally attempt to avoid it all together.

First off, the "no cheering from the press box" rule to me is good...UP IN THE PRESS BOX, but when you're down on the field, and IF you are an actual sports fan, it's kind of hard NOT to get caught up in the excitement of the game.

If you are a professional, you will act professional. If you cheer on the sidelines, you will likely get your credential revoked and possibly be banned from the future. I have seen it happen. Every one of us down there are fans. I shoot my alma mater's games (where I played) and I am a huge fan and donor. But I don't cheer on the sidelines. A friend of mine is banned for life from shooting one of the three pro sports teams in his market.

dress for the wage you want.

I'm going to start shooting NFL wearing shoulderpads and a helmet. :lol:
