Does your team have one of these? {Baton Rouge photographer Michael Tortorich}

I really, really, really wish someone would have taken photos of my basketball team when I was in 8th grade.

Do you know how many photos I have of myself playing basketball that year?

That's an easy question. None. Zero. Zilch.

I don't blame anyone for this. My family wasn't into photography, so they didn't carry cameras around with them. My coach was busy coaching. And, well, all of the players were busy playing.

I know what you're thinking, "I won't fall for this slick sales pitch. I'll out-smart this wise guy by taking pictures of my kid from the stands with my iPhone. It has a built-in camera! Surely, it will be able to freeze the action in a dark middle school gym from 100 feet away!"

Good luck with that.

Even if you could do that, why would you want to do it? This is your kid. You want to enjoy the game, not work during it.

OK, so we've concluded that the best route would be to let someone else handle the photos (you are on board with that, right?). How much would you pay for action photography like this? Bear in mind, these photos will freeze in time all of these athletes, coaches, and managers as they were while a member of the team.

Lucky for you, you can answer the question. I can't. Unless I can figure out how to build a time machine, that is.

Not only can I supply this sort of action sports photography, but I can also tie it all together for a sweet collage like the one above.

Just think about how cool it would be to have a collage like this as a large print. I designed this one as a 12x18 inch size. I shoot large resolution files, so it's a snap to print huge poster-sized copies.

Can your phone do that?
