Sport Photography

Photography is a key element of our brand. Images should engage the audience with a dynamic and energetic feel.

Ideal images:

  • Convey the theme of sport and exercise through the use of appropriate clothing, equipment and activity
  • Are dynamic and capture a sense of energy and movement
  • Should feel authentic with a positive, motivational quality
  • Feature use of vibrant colour on items of clothing, equipment of props
  • Images should be body positive and inclusive of all body types regardless of size, shape, skin tone, gender, and physical abilities


Portraits of students should feel natural and unposed to allow their personalities to come to life and demonstrate their place within the University.
