Game Day Photography & Video Policy

All photographers requesting sideline access during a sporting event (including sub-varsity & middle school athletic events) must submit the following:

  1. Complete a Game Day Photographer application
  2. Complete a background check

Upon clearance from the background check, you will receive an email from the MISD Athletic Department about your status. In addition, a badge will be provided which must be worn and visible at all times while taking photos at any MISD-sanctioned sporting event.

NOTE: There is currently no fee for game day photographers, but Mansfield ISD will start accessing fees for athletic event photographers in the 2018-19 school term.

Sideline Etiquette

  • Stay a minimum of three feet away from the field or court.
  • Stay out of the officials' paths.
  • Do not enter the team boxes.
  • Never use a tripod while working the sidelines. A monopod is recommended for large lenses.
  • Be aware of cables from video/TV cameras, especially the sideline remote videographers.
  • 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.
