About Us

We are a local husband and wife team who have lived in the Hudson Valley for 12 years.

Ratsey Photography

Tired of the same green screen/pick a background style sports photos and school sports portraits, we saw a gap in the market that we were compelled to fill.  Our goal is to provide sports portraits that are unique, creative, artistic and fun.  As parents of athletes, we know the passion that our kids have for their sports and we want that to show in the portrait that goes up in your home.

In June of 2020, we designed the the "All In This Together" school banner during Covid.  With schools in lockdown and sports on hold, this campaign took on a life of it's own.  We saw schools from Long Island to Buffalo, participating in this campaign in a show of unity during a very daunting time.  That same year, we jumped on graduate lawn signs as a way to further showcase the kids who were forced to miss the most important high school milestones such as graduation.

2 years later, custom door banner and lawn signs continue to be one of our favorite projects as we work with graduating seniors in our local surrounding schools.

We are proud to work with local schools, gyms and clubs.  Our approach is simple: we create the kind of image that we, as parents, wanted for our own kids.  

Our passion is to showcase THEIR PASSION.  

Please contact us to discuss your sports photography needs.
