What is is an online community and resource for sports photographers and other working photojournalists.

It serves as an informative and inspiring site for anyone who aspires to be on the sidelines capturing great moments at their favorite sporting venue.

Sports Shooter History
Sports Shooter began in 1998 as an e-mail newsletter created by USA Today photographer Robert Hanashiro. His newsletter originally was passed along to a handful of sports photographers, photojournalists and colleagues as a way for Hanashiro to share his experiences, insight, concerns and rants about the state of sports photography.

Over time, Sports Shooter grew to include more than 7,000 subscribers and countless editorial contributions from professional sports photographers who donated their time and shared their wealth of information.

Recognizing the value in the content being shared among this small community of sports photographers, freelance photographer Brad Mangin initially reserved space on his Web site to archive each issue of Sports Shooter along with photos and links not included in the e-mail version of Sports Shooter.

Each article from the archive has been painstakingly edited and categorized into a searchable database that you see on this site today, allowing viewers to research any and all topics covered in the Sports Shooter newsletter over the past several years. Staff
