JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – As The Sin Bin’s Jacksonville Icemen photographer, my photos have been used for other online news articles, the Icemen’s social media platforms, or even by players sharing them to their social media accounts. I’ve also had several player face shots turned into giant heads on a stick for fans to hold up during Icemen games or have players sign during meet-and-greets.
Over the past two seasons, Icemen fan Tyler Bringman has used some of my photos to make custom edits that he gets the players to sign. I shared them on my own social media pages throughout the season, which increased their popularity. Fans can either choose an existing image or request that their favorite players be made into an edit so that they can then purchase the image without the watermark. Even players and their family members have requested copies for themselves. During the last Icemen meet-and-greet, I witnessed several players signing copies for fans.
Tyler creates edits for many other college and professional sports, including football, basketball, and baseball. You can look at his work on his Instagram page.
Check out this photo gallery of some old and new custom edits, from the 2019-20 Icemen season.
