Chris Loh, might be there. You can talk to him and see what he says.

There will be an official announcement coming soon however, We have acquired Chris Loh as the official and exclusive photographer/videographer for the MWXL. What this means is that only Chris will have access to the fields to take pictures at the events. All pictures and videos will be available at the MWXL site.

This comes on the heels of complaints from teams regarding too many people on the sidelines causing interference with the referees dong their jobs. As well as the booming interest among our youth to take up photography as a hobby or area of study. So we have several people asking about taking pics at these events that we just cannot accommodate… I hope you guys understand.

Shoot me a PM, Post Up Here or Email me if you have any questions.

After reffing a small event last week I can understand how TOO MANY people on the side lines could interfere with the reffing. I think it's cool that you would secure one person to make all the events so that there is always one available.

However, can one photographer keep up with two fields? 20 D4 team and how many ever D3 teams? No way.

Just a suggestion ... why not allow 2 (or even 3), to increase the coverage of the event? You can do this by requiring no more than one photograhper on each side line for any given point. If A photo guy is on snake one point and B is on Dside, then they (as a comon courtesy to each other) switch for the next point. This would eliminate most of the interferance with the refs.

If for some reason they can't work together and be nice about it, yank the two photogaphers in question, let them answer to thier customers, ban them from future events, etc.

Agreed. I had talked with numerous people about photos for this event, and it doesn't sit well with me referring them to someone else who's trying to cover almost 30 teams on two fields.

Why not set up some sort of system? Have photographers submit examples of their work, and if its good, add them to a list of approved photographers. After an event, have the photographer send his 10 best pictures for promotional use.

This is a win-win for players and photographers. Players get their moneys worth in photos, and photographers get the business they want. Additionally, the MWXL gets more photos to themselves, simply because there are more photographers on the field.

If a photographer impedes the refs ability to do their job too much, kick them off the field.

This is exactly what we have done by restricting access to the fields to the refs, the players and our Media Staff, which consist of Chris Loh and whoever he has to assist him (If needed). This is not about the quality of work of other photographers. We chose Chris because of the freelance work he has done and think he is just a great fit for us. As far as teams getting their money’s worth, the photos will be posted at the MWXL website for the players and teams to go and get for free.

If Chris plans on bringing in extra hands, then that's a different situation. It's unrealistic to think that one man is going to be able to get any substantial amount of photos of all teams when there's 27 teams (assuming D3 is run) running on two fields.

If not, I'm sure Chris will be just fine

This.

Sure, Chris may not be able to take a photo of every moment on every field but he has a heart and drive that I've not seen from another photog.

If I'm reading correctly, all the photos he takes will be posted up for FREE online.

It's a win-win-win. The refs have only one other person to deal with. The players all get free photos. Chris and Stacy get to spend quality time together.

What's the problem?

Here is what I am willing to do for this event and moving forward... Besides MWXL's media staff, I will allow access for one (1) other photographer on the fields to represent the hosting field (NO EXCEPTIONS)... I will need to know from the hosting field who that person will be prior to the event.

If this person is you, GREAT! If not, that's the best I can do.
