Photography Guidelines

FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY
Flash photography, including on-and-off camera flash / strobe units, is permitted at all OSAA events. Remote flash / strobe units should be used wherever possible. Please avoid shooting directly into participants' eyes with flash-mounted units. If the OSAA representative on site views a flash as a safety issue due to the layout of a particular venue, the photographer may be asked to disable the flash.

DESIGNATED PHOTOGRAPHY LOCATIONS
Note: The OSAA or game officials may alter the following photography locations due to safety or to accommodate a specific facility.

  • BASEBALL / SOFTBALL
    Designated areas along the first and third baselines (must be designated dead ball areas).
  • BASKETBALL
    Each end of the court. Set up at least 10 feet behind the end line.
  • CHEERLEADING
    At least 10 feet off the competition mat and out of the direct line of the judges.
  • CROSS COUNTRY
    When shooting the start, photographers must give the field a minimum of 50 yards to allow for time to shoot and move off the course. Photographers may shoot from either side at the finish line in designated areas, but are not allowed in the race path.
  • FOOTBALL
    Sidelines except within the team boxes. Set up at least five yards behind the sideline.
  • GOLF
    Observe golf etiquette. Be aware of camera noise; shoot only after the ball is struck. Remain off greens and tee boxes.
  • SOCCER
    Sidelines except within the team boxes and endlines between the 18-yard box and the corners of the field. Set up at least five yards behind the sideline or endline.
  • SWIMMING
    Corners of the bulkhead. Allow space for officials to walk both sides of the pool. Due to use of sound and flash starting systems, avoid flash photography during the start of a race.
  • TENNIS
    Either side of the net and the corners of the court. Do not change positions until the players have switched sides.
  • TRACK & FIELD
    In all events, consider the safety of yourself and the participants and provide a reasonable cushion. Provide a 40-meter cushion when shooting sprints and hurdles head on. Remain off the shot put, discus and javelin fields.
  • VOLLEYBALL
    Set up to shoot at least 10 feet off the court. If shooting at the net, remain behind the officials and do not set up between adjacent courts.
