Courtney has been capturing moments as a social media and communications manager for FOX Sports Detroit since 2012. Her photography is a blend of production shoots with professional Detroit athletes, special events, game coverage and behind-the-scenes moments, including fans and broadcasters. She loves the creative process and the way photos connect us. Courtney’s passion for photography goes beyond the sports world into nature, where her photos freeze a moment in time to tell a story and invoke a feeling.
Allison, a photojournalist and photographer based in Detroit, got her start in sports photography at The Michigan Daily, the University of Michigan’s student newspaper. She came to love the challenge and adrenaline of covering live sports, and first came to baseball photography as an intern for Cleveland in 2017. Allison considers herself lucky to spend springs in Lakeland, Fla. and summer nights at Comerica Park.
Monica is a live content creator for Major League Baseball. A native Michigander, she’s ecstatic to work for her home team and call Comerica Park her office. She graduated from Central Michigan University, majoring in photojournalism. She loves to photograph the action, special achievements and personalities of the athletes. “Intensity, hard work, drive and passion are words I would use to describe sports,” she says. “I’d also use those same words to describe my journey as a sports photographer.” Her advice to young women who choose creative careers: set goals, push limits and follow your dreams. “The dream may be challenging, but it’ll always be worthwhile.”
