Sideline Etiquette

  • Stay behind the line! (or if no visible line, stay a minimum of 3 yards off the playing field out of bounds line.) Stepping forward or leaning out might help you get a better photograph or view of the play, but you just blocked all of the other photographers who can now only see the back of your head instead of the big play.

  • Stay out of the referee paths.

  • If you are not actually shooting the game, stay off the sidelines so that the photographers/videographers can shoot the game.

  • Do not enter the team boxes. This is usually the areas between the 25 or 30 yard lines. It is usually clearly marked with box lines (and screaming coaches!)

  • Never use a tripod while working the sidelines. Monopods are recommended for large lenses.

  • Be cognizant of cables from video/TV cameras, especially the sideline remote videoographers.

  • Never stand directly behind a kneeling or standing photographer. If he/she has to move suddenly to avoid getting hit by players, you will impair their movement.

  • Be courteous and polite.

  • Flagrant violators will be removed from the field.
