Youth Sports creative poses

Wondering if anyone has any examples of non-traditional, creative poses for youth sports like baseball, soccer, basketball and football.

I've been shooting team and individual for these sports but I really want to just do individual shots for parents who are willing to pay a little more for better and more creative poses.

I don't need to sell a ton of photos because I do have a day job. I want to offer a better quality product that I enjoy shooting.

If anyone has any examples of interesting poses that are not just the normal boring stuff that you are willing to post I would appreciate it. I'm not trying to knock the normal stuff because I know it pays the bills for many photographers.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Youth Sports creative poses

I do not have them right in front of me, but for basketball this past season I did some fun portraits. Had a guard get in a defensive position and shot him with his arms in three different positions and combined them in Photoshop for a 6 armed defender look. Took one kid who could really jump, placed a strobe about a foot from the rim at 10 feet high with a softbox and shot him going up for a dunk but looking at the camera with a smirk on his face.

For baseball this season I want to do action portraits. I am thinking about standing close to second and have a kid jump and throw like he is turning a double play or getting down real low and having a kid slide into second head first. I am also experimenting with rubber cement and fire on baseballs and old bats. Get a fun shot of a hot pitcher or a slugger on fire. Of course a bucket of water and a fire extinguisher are on hand.

Combine these photos with some Photoshop work or templates from some place like Artistic Action and you have a winner.

Whenever I need portrait inspiration, I look at the work of Robert Seale of the Sporting News. He always has some incredible and stunning portrait shots of athletes.

Good luck...
