FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

What is sports photography?

Sports photography is normally associated with candid photographs of athletes taken during training or competitions. However, as a former elite tennis player, I know that those type of snapshots rarely capture the best of an athlete skills. That is why I created my studio Bonofiglio Photography to create photographic art that will focus on capturing the absolute best of athletes, dancers and performers.

My sports photography studio in Melbourne not only covers fitness but a range of activities such as dance and performing arts.

Me and my team at Bonofiglio Photography focus on getting to know kids and families to create artwork that will make them feel extremely proud of all the blood, sweat and tears they have put on their journey. And each art piece will be an ongoing reminder of their limitless potential.

  • promos, and more.
What’s your strength?

My biggest strength as a professional sports photographer is that I intimately know the journey of a high competition athlete because I was an elite junior athlete myself. I used to train 15-20 hours a week above my normal school life and understand challenges and rewards of life in competition.

Above that I coached sports during my 20’s with a strong emphasis on growing mindset, avoiding injuries and building technique at every level. So in my work as a photographer, I ensure I guide every single athlete to see the best in themselves no matter if they are a complete beginner or an Olympian. I work with people all ages, abilities and sports to reflect to them the most empowering images they have ever seen of themselves.

My highlight on each session is hearing athletes proudly say ‘Wow, that’s me’.

    The Bonofiglio Photography experience was great. Marina made sure she got to know each of the children and how they wanted to be photographed. Marina guided us through wardrobe choices, poses and choosing effects. She made each of the children feel comfortable in front of the camera and they all enjoyed the experience immensely.
    The pictures are all so amazing it was so hard to choose. The end product looks phenomenal on our wall. Thanks Marina

    2020 has been a year of many changes and disappointments. But the opportunity for our granddaughter to be part of the strong girls, has been a highlight. From the joy of hearing Millie telling me how cool the photoshoot was to watching her face when she saw herself for the first time. These are memories I will cherish. Thank you, really doesn’t cover just how appreciative I am for this wonderful experience for my family .
