About FatSpike

FatSpike.com came to life in May 2007 and aims to:

 

  • Give fans and players access to great beach volleyball photos
  • Promote beach volleyball and the lifestyle via photography and the Web

Some background

This is me, (<a href="http://schock.net" title="Go to Jason's Web site">Jason</a>). I design Web applications and work as an occasional freelance <a href="http://photos.jasonschock.com" title="Check out my photos">photographer</a>.

I started shooting AVP beach volleyball events in Santa Barbara in 2006, and then began putting all the photos online for friends to check out. Players and fans started finding photos via search engines and asking for shots.

With all the demand, I figured the photos warranted a site all their own, hence FatSpike was born.

What we do

Contact

It's pretty simple: we go to AVP events and shoot the matches. We then put the photos online where you can get copies. Digital copies with the FatSpike watermark are yours free for personal usage, like printing, desktop wallpaper, blogs, etc. Check out how to share photos.

You can also buy prints or digital copies which come without the watermark. Prints are great quality and guaranteed to be to your liking. And they keep the site going.

Commercial licenses are available as well. Please contact us about this.

We're always interested to hear what you have to say.
