->> We are looking over more applications --- some from December and others recent submission --- there is a lot that goes into the evaluation.

As I have said in the past: The essay portion of the application is very important.

Once we fill all of the student and non-student spots in IX, a waiting list will be started. Any openings will be filled from the waiting list. (And we will continue to accept apps for the waiting list.)

Thanks again to all that have applied ... and it you haven't? Better hurry is all I can say!

This will be a VERY cool 5-days i So Cal!

I just wanted to say thanks to Bert and the rest of the Academy staff for even allowing people the opportunity to do this, regardless of if I get in or not. And I mean that sincerely. It definitely sounds like a great event.

->> Mike Goulding is in the (SSA IX) house!

I am very happy to confirm that Michael Goulding will be able to join us as an instructor for SSA IX in April!

For those of you that do not know Mike, he is a staff photographer at the Orange County Register and has been a regular member of our faculty over the years. The last workshop, he was not able to join us and we really missed Mike's involvement. Mike is not only a wonderful photographer but also one of the best teachers I have had at our workshops.

Mike joins previously announced instructors: Matt Brown, Rod Mar, Dave Black, Wally Skalij, John McDonough and Shawn Cullen!

Before joining the OC Register, Mike was on staff at the Torrance Daily Breeze and the National Sports Daily.

Check out the SSA videos and you will see Mike doing what he does best: interacting with the workshop participants. You can see his work
at his Sports Shooter member page:
http://www.sportsshooter.com/members.html?id=4570
and at his personal wbesite:
http://www.mikegouldingphotography.com/

THE coolest sports photography event of the year got even cooler!

->> Yes, thanks to Nikon, USA for the funding that allowed college and university students to attend the Sports Shooter Academy IX tuition-free!

We had over 80 applications and the process required a portfolio and an essay submission.

I wish we could accommodate all of the students that wanted to attend, but there was a limited number of spots available.

(There is a waiting list and any openings due to drop outs --- and we've had a few --- will be filled from the waiting list.)

->> Well, since was an idiot and broke the rules, I thought I'd chime in with what this thread was actually meant for.

I'm really excited to be coming, and I hope I'll be able to really diversify my skill set. I've never really used remotes, or spent much time with off camera flash, so I think those are the two things I'm most nervous/excited about trying.

I'm also really curious to just see what types of things people come up with and see how other people see the same events differently at the end of the day.

->> I can't believe that the Sports Shooter workshop is just right around the corner!!! I am so excited, I have a feeling it's going to be one of the best ones yet! What I am most excited for is all of the feedback and direction from the instructors. Bert, Matt, Rod, Wally and Shawn are just so good not only at what they do but at teaching others, not to mention that they made the last workshop so much fun. I'll never forget Bert and Matt jumping around like kids at the football game because they were so excited! I also can't wait for Dave Black's workshop I think it will be a great addition. And of course I am looking forward to meeting all the new photographers!
