This is the first blog post from a new series…
College sports is a multi-billion dollar industry, and photography plays an ever increasing role to communicate newsworthy events, increase school brand awareness, and engage alumni. And it’s not just college basketball pictures–nearly all athletic teams demand photography for sports posters, magazines, official rosters, framed prints, and more.
There’s a lot of opportunity for universities and colleges to take in additional revenue from these sales, and savvy schools are starting to understand how the photography departments (which have traditionally been cost centers), can become revenue generators for the school. Colleges, universities and even high schools are finding that the tools and features available on their PhotoShelter websites are making photo sales possible. Below are a handful of examples alongside some of our favorite college sports photos.
