But a new demographic has emerged: Photographers.
Veto League has gained popularity mostly through word of mouth. But in recent years social media has played a vital role. As the league continues to expand its web presence through Facebook, Twitter and this website, a new need was found... a need for photographers.
Veto League creates great moments, friendships and memories. But unfortunately many moments are captured just by memory and nothing further.
Young and inspired photographers in the Quad Cities have expressed interest in taking photos for the league. One of those interested parties is Mallory McLain. McLain lives in Rock Island and goes to school at Augustana college. In her spare time she enjoys taking photos and she posts them to a Facebook page dedicated to those pictures.
"Although I haven't done any sports sessions, I have a strong background and passion for them," McLain said in a written statement. "This is just a great opportunity."
McLain said she can attend most games following school starting in June. "I may not be able to make every game, but I can make a majority of summer games," McLain said.
Anyone interested in McLain's other work and possibly hiring her for that special occasion can visit her website for more information.
Veto League is still looking for other photographers who might be interested in shooting for Veto League for the games McLain cannot attend and to also cover the first two months of the season, April & May. Veto League is also open to having multiple shooters at games to get pictures from multiple angles. If you know anyone who may be interested in this opportunity, please have them email firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a non-paying job as Veto League is a not-for-profit league. We will link to Facebook pages and websites for anyone who takes pictures though.
Opening Day for Veto League is April 12. Games are played every Saturday and Sunday beginning at 11:30am at Douglas Park.
