Event Photography that Pays for Itself!

Add value to your next race or regatta with our professional and creative photography service. We offer a bespoke photography service for your event at no cost to the clubhouse, with skippers and crew able to purchase the resulting images directly from our website at extremely attractive prices.

Based around the marathon photos model we list images by sail number, this means its not only a great service for yacht clubs, it’s a great reminder of the fantastic event itself, perfect for marketing the next one!

HOW IT WORKS

With no charge* to the event organizers for this service, it provides an affordable way to add extra value to special events, all we ask in return is the organizers promote us in the lead up to, and during the event itself to make sure skipper and crew know where to purchase their photos after the event. Oh, and provide us with a vessel to get out on the water if the event is not in Sydney.

This means event organizers can secure a professional, skilled and creative photographer for the event without a direct outlay on the club.

We have a track record of success, providing competitors with creative and unique images of their boats that are incredibly well received, adding value to participation in your event.

*If asked to travel inter-state flights & accommodation will need to be discussed.

TESTIMONIALS

“The SPOT-A-YACHT team is fantastic at capturing every moment of the regatta, the ups, and the downs; they photograph all the boats in the regatta whether you’re coming first or last. The photo packages are great value and give you fantastic memories of the regatta. ” – Jared Macquart, J24 Southern Fleet
 
“The Balmain Regatta is our biggest event of the year, with so many moving parts it was a pleasure not having to hire and pay for a photographer for the event. SPOT-A-YACHT provided the club with freebies to give away to our hotel sponsors and they also managed to get a photo of the event on the cover of Afloat Magazine!  Their model isn’t like any other in the industry and as a result, we were able to spend our budget in other areas.  The guys at SPOT-A-YACHT are such a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend them to cover your next event” – David Stenhouse, Balmain Sailing Club

We Want Photographers

Founder Benjamin Williams Ready to Shoot

Do you take beautiful photos of yachts under sail?  We’ve opened our doors to all enthusiast yacht photographers to upload and sell their work to the yachting community. We’ve just launched a new and easy to use platform for photographers to submit and take control of their photos, pricing and orders. We’re looking to stretch our reach across Australia, so now is the perfect time to take advantage of SPOT-A-YACHT’s growing brand and community following.  To get your photos seen and to earn some cash in the process, just look for the photographers tab in the menu to register and get started or contact us for more information. 

 

Balmain Regatta

The Balmain Regatta happens every year in October from the Balmain Sailing Club.  Its a combination of Dinghies, Yachts and Vintage Skiffs.  It was a scorcher of a day, with very light winds – however, with a delayed start the winds soon picked up to cool down the day and get the boats moving.

We captured 400 photos from the regatta, that are now cataloged on-site.  You can find photos of your yacht by either searching in the search bar above or by visiting the Balmain Sailing Club Yacht Page  We had some trouble cataloging the vintage skiffs, so you can find a special listed created for the photos we couldn’t catalog here.

We also put together a small video via our YouTube Channel, The Hopeful Sailor.

Enjoy.

Start of the Sydney to Gold Coast

Saturday 29th was a beautiful sunny day, an absolute picture perfect day for the start of the Land Rover CYCA Sydney to Gold Coast Yacht Race – well besides the light winds.    We loaded up our boat with camera gear and waited by the large tanker in the middle of the harbour for the start of the race.  Once the yachts were racing, it was of no surprise that Wild Oats XI was the first out of the heads.  We traveled to the open sea with the fleet grabbing shots along the way.

Overall we managed to capture 238 images over 51 yachts, did we spot you and your crew?  Find out below.

New Look SPOT-A-YACHT

Welcome to Spot-A-Yacht 2.0, a new platform that we feel is better suited to what we do.   We’ve taken this opportunity to re-catalogue our database to offer you guys better value for money, as we now group your photos by day – which gives you the option to buy single images or save with the days bundle.  This is a similar business model to anyone who has ever purchased marathon photos.
