How our team photos work:
- Players order team photos using order forms that have been distributed to each player prior to photo day.
- Players return their payments and completed forms to their team manager. Please note: all players placing an order MUST do so by photo day to avoid a late surcharge.
- The team manager returns the team envelope to the photographer on photo day.
- Each team will be photographed, then individual portraits as per the order forms.
- Team managers will be provided with the group photo proof following photo day for final sign off.
- 10 working days after ALL proofs have been approved, your photos will be returned to your club for distribution.
For clubs purchasing photos on behalf of all players: Clubs may choose to purchase team photo packs on behalf of the players. We require 50% of the estimated total with prints being delivered after final payment has been made.
