For Syed Salman, also known as Sal of Sal Media, keeping his passion alive, building a venture out of it, and seeking growth across the board are just a few of the things he has done to boost himself and expand his influence in the sports world as a professional sports photographer. After years of working as a cyber security expert, Sal decided to turn his hobby into a career. Now setting his sights on making a name for himself in the industry, he is launching his very own media company that would feature his exceptional works nationally and globally.
Sal grew up loving sports and photography. He was a passionate athlete as a young boy who spent his time participating in many sporting activities. He also enjoyed having a camera with him throughout his teenage years. He spent a considerable time taking pictures of everyone just to capture a perfect moment. He nurtured this love into adulthood until he had to focus on other things and relegate his childhood hobbies. However, now, he’s ready to take his photography skills to the next level.
Sal Media came to life as a product of a rekindled passion, which is mainly focused on sports photography; capturing moments when players make a hit, make a wicket-breaking throw, or do anything remarkable during a sports match. “We capture everything from the moment a shot is taken to the facial reaction of the players. We make sure not to miss any moment as those moments cannot be relived or replicated if not properly captured when they happen. Sal Media is the home of everything sports photography, and we have our sights set on creating memories across different sports,” Sal said.
As a visionary, out-of-the-box thinker and perfectionist, Sal has captured some iconic sporting moments but now wants to extend his entity’s reach to work directly with sports brands, teams, figures and companies. His goal is to see Sal Media out there delivering crisp images of the world’s favorite sports celebrities. Some of the photos he has taken are displayed on his website.
Over the next few years, Sal sees Sal Media becoming a top choice for brand management, design management, web development, professional videography, professional photography, and streaming services. “Everything in my life has prepared me for this time, and right now, I’m confident we are ready to take on the world. I have put together a dedicated team, and the natural love I have for capturing magical moments is the force driving the company forward. We’re all about never missing important moments, and we hope to prove that by working on as many sports projects as possible,” Sal affirmed.
There is no question that Sal Media is bound to take the world by storm.
