Seattle Saracens Official Club Photographer
"My passion for photography consumed me as I watched my children play sports throughout the years. I enjoyed experiencing their games from the sidelines where I could capture the essences of their determination through the camera lens".

Seattle Saracens Match Day Photography Guidelines
The Seattle Saracens welcomes photographers to take photos during games.
The most prominent factor in determining photography guidelines is safety. Another highly-significant factor is the continuity of the game itself without interruption or distraction. There are also issues of privacy, event management, stadium rules, and others which are all considered and adhered to.
Game/Club/Match officials have the discretion to ask a photographer to change their vantage point if the official feels the players’ ability to play without distraction is being jeopardized by the photographer’s location. The players’ comfort/performance should never be compromised. For safety reasons, tripods should not be kept near the playing field at any time. Photographers should always respect the view of those who may be behind them.
Photographers are requested to remain at least 6 feet from the side/touchlines and end lines at all times and are generally restricted from the team bench areas unless otherwise indicated. Generally, flash photography should always be avoided.
