The Junior Snooker Academy is based at North Notts. Arena in Worksop and is run by volunteers. Each year they hold a presentation and awards evening to celebrate the success and progress of their members, with the evening hosted by a professional player; This year, former world champion Ken Doherty.
The event can only take place with the aid of their sponsors and the events on the night where frames against the pro are auctioned off. With this in mind it was important that we make sure the sponsors were prominent within the photos as well as covering the all important action at the table and the presentation of the individual awards.
The venue required us to use a mix of studio flash as well as battery powered off-camera flash to be able to cover all the angles due to the limited space around parts of the snooker table combined with the limited light from the single over table light.
After the event the images were uploaded in to our password protected customer portal so that parents could purchase photos of the night in a range of sizes. As part of our service the club received a percentage of the sales price back to help them raise much needed funds.
