I didn't buy a photo package. Do I still have to take backstage studio photos?
YES! All athletes are mandated to take studio photos, even if they haven't purchased them. These photos will be used for WNBF Canada's marketing, and athletes may be featured on next year's poster.
Where do I take my backstage photos?
The studio will be set up backstage during the competition. Before or after going on stage, please take your mandatory photos. If you see it is not busy, feel free to jump in and get your photos done!
Do I need to book a time for the backstage photos?
No, Only "InstaPro Package" purchases need to book a dedicated time for their 45-minute shoot.
How long does it take?
Can I take more than ten photos backstage?
Yes, as long as it is not busy.
Can I take backstage photos with my friends and family?
Group shots with your family, trainers and fellow athletes are welcomed. Please let the photographer and backstage manager know ahead of time.
What poses should I do? I've never done this before!
You can do your standard five favourite competition and or your favourite artistic poses. Our photographer will guide/coach you through the process on the day; his/her job is to ensure you look great! Please ask to see the photos after to ensure you are happy with the lighting style!
