Active Illustrated is a part time junior sports photography and blog business. It was my children’s sporting activities which got me interested in investing in camera and lens for sports photography.
Whilst most professional photographers are committed to sports involving paid athletes in national or highest state level sports, I dedicate weekends taking photos of children for parents to share with their friends and families.
I initially developed this site to provide an opportunity for parents to see and share sporting moment of their children with their loved ones.
However, when spending 100’s of games on the side lines it exposed me to some alarming adult behaviours. I became interested in how negative behaviours affected children in sport.
So, during 2017 I began to research the subject and what I found shocked me. I just had to share it with other parents.
I developed two programs for parents to help accelerate their children’s development and confidence in their sport by sharing recommendations from professionals, coaches and specialised educators.
“Off the Pitch with Active” & “Yellow for Yelling” are the two programs to help deliver the recommendations.
Provide opportunities for families to obtain excellent photos of their children in active moments capturing intensity, passion and enjoyment.
To share knowledge from professionals and specialist educators with other parents and to implement the “Yellow for Yelling” program in Schools, Sporting Clubs and Community Organisations in all codes.
An environment where children are attracted to play, keep playing sport and enjoy the experience of learning and developing confidence.
