Good sports photography requires instincts, timing, knowledge of the game and an understanding of the emotional currents which run through all athletic endeavors. Whether photographing your child’s soccer game, little league, basketball practice, or attending a professional sporting event, the principles of photographing action and movement are the same. In this workshop by a leading sports photographer, and former photography editor at Sports Illustrated, you will learn to take better sports and action photographs. Drawing on examples culled from Adam’s nearly 30 years in the field, and through daily assignments at sporting events in the area, you will become immersed in the elements which go into producing powerful and dynamic sports imagery. Based on years of experience covering major professional events and Olympic competitions, as well as other editorial experiences, Adam will introduce the tools, techniques and tips that professionals use to read the action, and produce winning photographs; techniques which can be employed no matter what level of competition you wish to photograph. Whether new to action photography, or already with some experience, you will come away with a richer understanding and improved skills for photographing the rich world of sport.
