One of the results posted in the last blog was that 100% of respondents believed that good images can have a positive impact on the sport. In this post I plan to break down how teams use and feel about photographers. While everyone thought good images could have a positive impact, not everyone thought photography was important for the sport. In the questions where I used a Likert scale, on a range of 1-10 I will take 8-10 to be important, 6-7 slightly important, 5 neutral and 4 or less as not important. Approximately 81% thought that photography was important, 3% slightly important, 10% neutral and the rest, 6% as unimportant.
68% of respondents said that their leagues used images in both web and print form, 26% just on the web and the remaining 6% didn’t know. This 6% could have individuals not affiliated with a league. I should have put that as an option. So while people mainly consumed images on social media it is important to have high quality files as well. Compressing and sharpening blurry images which look okay on screen won’t cut it in print.
Well, that’s it for part two I will be analysing the survey and coming up with recommendations in the next.
