We partner with your organization, focusing on ensuring your picture day goes smoothly as well as the delivery of the images.
No Paper Order Forms! No Purchase is Necessary to be photographed!
All orders will be online and you will be able to pick your photos and your items and packages online after viewing your photos.
Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to your scheduled picture time.
Upon arrival, find your coach and/or team and stay together as a group.
Products will be displayed on Picture Day to allow you to see some specialty items.
Our friendly attendants will be available to assist you with any questions
Before players enter the staging area please double-check:
1) Jerseys are tucked
2) Strings are tucked into pants
3) Faces are clean
4) Hats and/or hair is in place
We ask that only players and coaches enter the photography area. We understand that some younger players may need additional assistance from their parents but we ask that this be kept to a minimum. Any parents within the photo area are there to help the coach with all of the players, not just one. Keeping the area free of congestion allows for a smoother operation and results in an easy, quick, and stress-free Picture Day.
Parents are not allowed to take pictures within the photo area. This distracts the players, slows down the process, and potentially reduces the quality of the photographs if players are looking away at the parents. Please respect this policy and allow us the opportunity to make the best possible photographs in an undistracted environment.
Ordering photos is easy - it is all online, and no more paper order forms to fill out! You will receive a text alert when your photos are ready.
You should have received an "Access Code" from Thunder Sports Photography regarding Photo Day (if not, please Contact Us ).
Text your Access Code to 90738 or go to galleries.photoday.io and enter it there. When your photos are ready, you will receive a link to view and order your photos online.
We Take Care of Everything
Our goal is to make your picture day a fun experience for the kids, an easy, and stress-free experience for the parents, and as simple a process for the program organizers as possible. We bring our own equipment, signs, tents, and anything else needed for that day.
Organized and On Time
At Thunder Sports Photography we know how to plan for and execute a smoothly running picture day. We provide plenty of friendly and knowledgeable staff to keep things running smooth and on time all day.
We’ll Customize Our Services Based on Your Needs
Whether your league has a few dozen or a few thousand athletes, photos to be done indoors or outdoors, at one location or multiple locations, we can accommodate. We’ll plan with you in advance to custom tailor your picture day based on YOUR needs.
Highest Quality Available
Our images are more than just the typical pictures provided by most other companies. We produce professional-quality sports portraits that players and their families will be proud to display and share with their friends and relatives.
Studio Style Lighting
Our style of photography utilizes “off-camera” studio style lighting. This approach offers consistency of light in different conditions and also consistent speed while maintaining the best quality.
We Are Fully Insured
We are fully-insured with both liability insurance and workers’ compensation coverage.
We can provide additional riders for locations upon request.
Our equipment is only professional series cameras, lenses, and lighting. Unlike most of our competitors, we don’t use cheaper consumer or “prosumer” type equipment. We recognize that many parents today have high-quality cellphone cameras which create amazing photos, however, there is no comparison between a cellphone picture and the picture using professional series lenses, lighting, and cameras. In addition, we carry a back up for everything, and in most cases backups to our backups. In the rare case something does fail on-site, or the wind knocks something over or something breaks, we have plenty of backup equipment on-site and are prepared to quickly replace the photography equipment.
Turnaround & Delivery
Fast Turnaround! Your coaches and parents will be amazed - photos will be received back while the season is still going on!
While other companies take 4 weeks or longer, we turn around your photos in 3 weeks or less.
This is the most convenient way to deliver the pictures. Each package is mailed directly to each player.
With COVID, more and more families are receiving everything directly to their house. We are no different.
Depending on your league we may offer incentives to parents.
One offier is if they purchase a credit in advance or spend a certain amount, they may receive free shipping. Otherwise economy shipping rates are usually under $5.
We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all our products.
