Sweden’s number problem


Posted in Other Thoughts on August 30th, 2013

I’ve often complained in the Photo Journal when I photograph a team that chooses not to have numbers on their shorts. It makes life really annoying as you try and snap throw-away photos of players backs so you have a way of identifying them.

I’m not the only one that hates this, it’s been the subjected of many conversations with various colleagues. One of Pic-Agency colleagues, Sami Grahn, has decided to bring the question directly to the Swedish Sportjournalist Association in hopes they might raise the question within the Swedish football and hockey leagues.

I have a good amount of Swedish photographers reading this blog, and if you are among them please take a minute to leave a comment in support of this.
