I know I can't believe they have spectators right next to the basketball court during games.

They could potentially distract the players and/or get in the way.

Who allows such things?

She seems to be at a lot of the tournaments which makes me wonder....how many pictures do the pros need of themselves?

LOL heck yeah it is. I've done both video and still and video is WAY more of a PITA. If you pack right, with still photography you can maneuver ok. I used a pro-video setup once and there is no running anywhere with that gear and attached cable. I had to have a grip follow me around coiling and uncoiling. I tried the wireless setup and it really wasn't much better other than not having the kid follow me around. With video you're holding that daggum camera ALL THE TIME because you never know when the producer is going to start screaming over the headset for a shot. With still photography you're kind of your own producer and set the camera down and give your arms a break now and then.

They’re professionals, trust me if it bothered them they’d let it be known.
Yeah she also is in a relationship with Nate Perkins and tours with most of these people. I think most of them are plenty comfortable with her taking the pictures. They understand its her passion/job just as much as throwing the disc is theirs.

The PDGA and DGPT, as well as manufacturers, use fresh photos for articles, social media, and other advertising. The more, the better.

I've never looked at a bunch of filthy frolfers and thought Man, I'd love to travel around and take up close photos of these guys.

Good for her. Doing the jobs Americans don't want.

Um. Let's think about that a bit.
You are a professional, and competition happens to be your best chance to market yourself, and grow the sport you are also probably trying to earn a living from.
Also. Really good action photography doesn't come from being far away. It comes from being close enough that something can happen, like say a disc can hit you, or the competitor can run into you. But you are able to capture it in detail.
Being far away won't get that kind of access.
