Behind the Scenes: NHL Campaign Photo Shoot

Prior to the start of the 2015-16 NHL season, Team STX athletes came together at the Piney Orchard Ice Arena in Baltimore for our latest ice hockey campaign photo shoot. Athletes spent the day in front of the camera and on the ice with STX’s latest gear and equipment.

Go behind the scenes of the shoot with NHL pro athletes from across the nation, including Matt Moulson, Brandon Pirri, Reid Boucher and Mike Brown.

The players traveled to Baltimore, MD, for two full days of on- and off-ice photography and video. 

To get just the right shots, the photographers have to get creative with their body position.

A photographer finds the best angle to take images of the NHL players warming up as a part of the photoshoot.

Capturing crisp images of the motion and speed on ice requires a steady hand.

During the photoshoot, STX staff reviewed images in real-time to ensure the correct shots for the new campaigns are collected. 

There can often be a lot of downtime during a photoshoot. Here Colin McDonald, right winger for the Philadelphia Flyers, waits to hit the ice while the next shot is setup. 

The videography team took every opportunity to catch the athletes at full speed. 

It was two full days of activity and focus for all the athletes. However, they all still found a way to laugh and keep the energy up!
