What Do Sports Videographers Do?
A sports videographer shoots footage of any sport played at the state, national or international level. Usually, the game footage captured is relayed live on television. They typically scout the location of the sports event to gain a vantage point and find the best angles. They set up their camera and other equipment, such as tripod, and ensure that they have the proper lighting to work with. Sports videographers are responsible for capturing all the action on camera and because of this, they keep the camera rolling even during time-outs. After shooting the footage, they alter the footage as required by the client. For example, if a news channel wants to show highlights of the game, the videographer may edit the footage and piece it together for exactly that.
Besides shooting the main sports footage, sports videographers may also shoot footage of the location, audience reactions, scoreboards, fans and players coming on to the field or court. They may also conduct interviews with coaches, players and fan reactions to add to the footage.
Sports videographers are hired by news and sports channels, educational institutes and private clients. They may occasionally also be hired by sportsperson to make a video portfolio. Typically, sports videographers work as freelancers and provide other freelance sport videography services such as compiling and editing existing sports video footage, adding titles and special effects to sports videos, and transferring videos to DVD.
