2020 Sports Photography Gathering Cancelled


The DPPF prioritizes the health and safety of our grantees and the professionals on our boards. Therefore, we are cancelling this September’s inaugural Sports Photography Gathering in Golden CO due to the spread of COVID-19.

2020 grant winners announced

10 emerging photographers selected from a competitive field will receive an aggregate of $22,000 in grants and equipment, mentorships, and networking opportunities with top industry professionals. 

doug’s legacy

“As I got to know Doug, I appreciated his work ethic and professionalism. He worked harder than anyone to get “the shot.” Not only did he end up getting the shot he wanted, but he also represented a huge company that distributed his shots around the world. He made all of this look easy, and so I thought I must be doing things wrong. Unknowingly, he pushed me to become better. He opened my mind to a sense of creativity that I hadn’t had before. And although I had already been around for several years, he opened my eyes to a beauty that I hadn’t seen in the sport.”
