Class Experience

Learners will learn the best camera settings for sports photography and where to position themselves around the field/court to get the best shots. They will also learn what makes a great sports photograph and how to best capture action sports and sports feature photos (what happens around the game and not just in the game).
I have loved to watch and play sports since I was a kid and I have been photographing them since I was in high school. As a professional I have photographed the NFL, the NBA, FIFA soccer, NCAA games. I’ve also photographed hundreds of youth sporting events and continue to do so. I have over 25 years of professional photography experience and 16 years of teaching experience. 
This is a one time class and there will be no homework, but I suggest that the learners go out and practice the techniques discussed in the class.
I recommend that students have a digital SLR camera or a mirrorless equivalent camera that uses interchangeable lenses. Sorry, phone tablet cameras will not work for this class. They do, however, work for some my other classes.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
