COOL Sports Shooter Academy 14 News!

->> The COOLEST sports photography event of the year is now even COOLER!

Seattle Seahawks' team photographer Rod Mar will be taking a week off from his very busy schedule to be a part of the SSA14 faculty


LA - based commercial and editorial photographer Joey Terrill will be conducting a 3-day lighting program.


Joey has crafted a three-day lighting program that will be a sort of workshop-within-a-workshop. These lighting sessions will be conducted simultaneously with the regular SSA schedule. We are still working out the details, but the idea is Joey will give a 2 hour presentation and demo in the mornings, each day covering a different aspect of lighting and producing engaging and eye-catching portraits. Each session will progress on the previous day. These sessions will be speedlight-based so equipment is not an issue. From speedlights the jump to large studio strobe systems will be easier and more organic.

Here is just a sampling of the topics that Joey will cover:
How Light Makes You a Better Photographer
What Light Can Do
Laws of Light: Size
Laws of Light: Distance
Laws of Light: Quality
Speedlights: Big Light in a Small Package
Light Control
Conceptual Lighting
Lighting in Layers
Shaping the Face
Multiple lights

If you are not familiar with Joey, below are links to his personal website and his insightful blog:

And on Facebook

Rod has been a huge part of our workshops in the past and we are all very fortunate that he will bring his experience, knowledge, insights and high energy to SSA14.

You can check out his work on his personal website:


His blog is filled with fun behind-the-scenes photos and stories:

I have traveled from Sweden three times to attend the Sports Shooter Academy. And it has been really great all the times. Cant come this time. But for those of you that can make it happen. "Just do it" ;)
(And yes, i do hope to come back a fourth time in the future).
