Photo services for the AAYBA World Series locations in Texas, and Missouri will be offered by GTR Sports Photography . This year you have two options:
- Pre-order for either your entire team or individually.
- Order online after the event completes
The difference between the two is that those pre-ordering will be certain that their team or if an individual will be photographed. Pricing is substancially more attractive. Those waiting to order from the web will not be guaranteed coverage. While our goal is to cover every team at least once, with the large number of teams, possible weather challenges, GUARANTEED coverage simply is not possible.
ORDERING ONLINE AFTER THE EVENT
Photos taken will be uploaded within seven days after the completion of the world series tournament and will remain online until January 1st. Please pay particular attention when placing your orders as there will be an early bird promotion for those ordering within the first week or two after the conclusion of the tournament.

PRE-ORDERING THE "TOURNAMENT SPECIAL" TEAM CD/DVD PACKAGE OR THE "ATHLETE SPOTLIGHT" PACKAGE
We give priority to teams who order the "Tournament Special" Team CD/DVD" or the "Athelete Spotlight" CD/DVD package. We will only photograph one team per game which will allow us to shoot every hitter from both sides of the field, all defensive players (obviously the pitchers, catchers, and infielders, will get more exposure), and once all of the basic shots have been complete we will shoot every play directed by the action which will enable us to get tons of basic photos while allowing the photographer to get creative and shoot quite a large amount of action photos as well.
With the photo CD/DVD our customers can print in any size and any quantity that they prefer by printing the photos at home on their own photo printer or taking the CD/DVD to their local photo lab which nowadays include Wal-Mart, Costco, Walgreen's, Kinko's, etc. The photo printers used today by these companies are equal to those used by the majority of professional photo labs.
- By obtaining their photos on a CD/DVD it enables our customers to email the photos to friends and relatives, upload photos to personal and team websites, to IPAD's, to cell phones, to My Space and Facebook pages, etc.
What we have found in the past is that when teams order photos generally eight parents per team will order at an average sale of right at $50.00 which is equal to two 8x10's or three 5x7's. With our team CD/DVD packages each player on your roster will receive a CD/DVD with every photo we have taken of their team, which will be substantially more photos than what your $50 has bought in the past. For moms who enjoy to scrapbook, this is an exceptional deal.
We offer two “Team packages” and one “Individual Player “ package as described below.
- Team Package - we will shoot one complete game, though we cannot guarantee the number of action photos we shoot for the entire duration of your game, as slaughter shortened games effect our numbers as well. If all of the players get into the game, we will guarantee that all players will be photographed. If they don't play there is nothing we can do, we cannot come to another game to photograph those that didn't play. The fee for this package is $325.00 per team and your photos will be delivered via a single CD/DVD which you can duplicate for your which breaks down to $25.00 per parent based on 13 players which is the average number of players rostered per team. Many times a team sponsor will pick up this fee. If you would rather have a CD/DVD burned for each player the fee is $495.00.
Even if only a small group of parents are interested in purchasing the package we can still shoot your children without photographing the entire team with the same discounted prices as above. Your cost per parent will be a bit higher but you will each get better coverage of your child. Even if only five parents order the $325 package your per parent cost is still only $65.00.
Individual “Athlete Spotlight” Package – we will photograph one complete game of exclusively your child and your child only. The camera will stay on him at all times while in the field and follow him through his at-bat and running bases. The number of photos will be dependant on his playing time and his position defensively. A pitcher or catcher could have the most photos taken while an infielder a little less, and an outfielder still fewer. However, if he is involved in an exceptional play we will have the photo. The fee for this package is $225.00 and every photo taken will be burned to a CD/DVD which like the team package above, will enable you to print as many photos as you wish, in whatever size you wish.
Since most parents that purchase as outlined above spend $50 for only 2-3 photos you can see the extraordinary price of our CD/DVD and online gallery packages. All orders must be pre-ordered two weeks in advance of your check-in date. We need this information so we know how many photographers to work. We will not accept orders on-site.
We will schedule on a first come, first served basis and will maximize all of our available time slots. If this TEam Special or Athlete Spotlight is of interest to you don't wait until the last minute or we may not be able to schedule your child for this service. This is not sales hype.
