Mitch Hagy is the vision behind FOTOSPORT. Having competed in all forms of sport throughout his life including football, baseball, basketball, semi-pro auto racing and more recently triathlons, Mitch recognized a need for team & individual images that were more inline with the current age of digital photography.
FOTOSPORT 's multi-faceted business structure provides a one-stop shop for sports teams, booster clubs and clients wanting a variety of custom designed products.
FOTOSPORT provides photography, graphic design, publishing and digital solutions that far exceed the "old school" studios.
What used to take the majority of the day to photograph 250 high school football players now takes less than two hours. FOTOSPORT walks away with everything needed to provide picture packages for parents, images for the team website, images for the media guides we publish, images for creative posters, banners and flyers and the satisfaction that FOTOSPORT provides the most creative and unique composites custom designed specifically for your team.
FOTOSPORT has seen phenominal growth since its inception only 2 years ago. Starting in August of 2011, FOTOSPORT has experienced 99% referral based business with the help of a website and Facebook.
Mitch is a member of The Professional Photographers of America, The National Association of Photoshop Professionals and a self-taught photographer and photoshop creative.
Mitch was honored with the opportunity to speak to a sold out crowd about the business of photography, his approach and creative style at the DFW Photo Expo held every year in Arlington, TX.
- The VISION
- THE goal
- THE VIBE
We are in the greatest age of photography and graphic design, so why does our child's team and individual pictures look like they are stuck in the 80's? FOTOSPORT concept & application has revolutionized the picture day process to save time and eliminate headaches for coaches, players and parents.
What would take half a day away from precious pre-season practice time now takes less than a couple hours for a team of 250 players.
No need for risers or stands, no blinking, shadows or a player not paying attention. The lighting is controlled, the individual is now the focus and the flexibility to add and remove players from JV to Varsity teams is endless.
Utilizing the latest high-end photography equipment, computer technology & techniques, FOTOSPORT creates an experience like no other in the High School Sports Market.
Athletes, coaches & parents agree, FOTOSPORT offers a true one stop shop for all their media needs that lowers their overall cost and puts more revenue into their booster clubs and team programs.
FOTOSPORT is the fastest growing sports photography company in North Texas with 99% of its clientel deriving from referrals.
Let's face it, of the three things most dreaded by coaches nationwide, uniform issue, uniform return and picture day, photographers are viewed as a necessary evil.
FOTOSPORT works with successful organizations and coaches from CHHS, Trinity, Southlake, Lamar, Coppell, Grapevine, Northwest, Byron Nelson and many others.
FOTOSPORT also licenses photographers to provide the same creative photography and graphic design for coaches and organizations around the country.
THE OVERWHELMING DESIRE TO WOW
IS OUR OXYGEN
One of the great dilemmas in business is following too many foxes. In other words, becoming a jack of all trades, but master of none.
The availability of local creative talent and the vision to combine them under one roof is the mission of FOTOSPORT. From photography, graphic design, publishing and print, FOTOSPORT is your one source solution for everything creative.
With the digital age of creative design, we can chase those foxes while mastering the final product. All elements of the composition, i.e. the subject, background, typography and final medium, while produced from individual elements, they all contribute nicely into the final product allowing us to enjoy the wide variety of creative composition, while obsessing over the finished work of art.
Here at FOTOSPORT we have been blessed with the vision, grateful for the business and excited for the future.

FOTOSPORT invites you to our studios in Southlake, TX or we can bring the studio to you. Our unique style of photography and our efficient use of technology is the starting point of all our creative work.
Where we have the most fun. Our graphic design services are here to provide traditional commercial design for media guide advertisements as well as our themed creative player spreads. This is all about the vision where the possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
FOTOSPORT provides full turn-key solutions for your print media. We handle the advertising sales, photography, design, layout and print with the same creative design you would expect and a true focus on the athletes.
Suppose you could take a printed media guide and add player introduction videos, or video highlights from the game that fans could tweet about or share via facebook. Suppose you could offer your sponsors and advertisers a place to offer interacive coupons, facebook links to their pages and video promoting their products. Would you believe you can?
FOTOSPORT now offers interactive, digital media guides for the iPad, Android and Kindle devices.
Athletes work hard training, practicing and playing the game year after year. Parents spend countless hours supporting their son or daughter in their chosen sport.
For those hoping to continue playing after high school it takes an even bigger effort to stand out among the other athletes.
Let FOTOSPORT create a player highlight page that is designed like you have already made the pros. Add elements like action photography, stimulating visual graphics and musically themed video that will catch the eye of scouts and be the envy of your competition.
Are you a photographer that would like to offer your clients the level of design you see here? Not sure you can learn 15 years of PHOTOSHOP in a month? FOTOSPORT can help! Begin offering school sports teams in your area the same level of design you see here regardless of your location.
Good design iS good business.

One of the big movements happening in photography especially Senior Photography, is that the old school lean up against the tree or the chin on the knee while sitting pose is no longer considered high-end photography in my opinion. Seniors and their parents are looking for something unique and dramatic. Something to capture the emotion and excitement of the time.
This is one of my favorite aspects of creative photography & digital artistry. This is where an athlete, musician, dancer or really anyone for that matter can claim that Hollywood moment....something custom that you can't find anywhere else.

Grapevine High school
I had been shooting for Grapevine Basketball for awhile so I had seen these group of players grow up before me. They are a great bunch of athletes and had a great year".
I had just learned a few new techinques that I was eager to try out and this was a perfect shot to do it. Each were individually photographed and then processed and blended togther.
As you can see these guys look as good as they play and it was a big hit.
keller High school
This was the creative spread to the 2014 Keller Baseball media guide.
Our printed media guides are a huge hit. Once a theme is decided we get to work creating a look and feel that carries over into the entire season.
These boys didn't know what to expect. Especially when we photographed each of them individually in a locker room. Yes each player you see here is individually photographed and painted into the scene we later create.
