Samy's Camera to sponsor SSA Tim Mantoani Memorial Award

->> A big SHOUT-OUT to Samy's Camera for continuing to sponsor the Tim Mantoani Memorial Award.

This is very special for those of us that have been involved with the workshop over the years. Tim was a very big supporter of the Sports Shooter Academy, helping us promote good photography and professionalism. He also was a featured speaker and a member of the faculty for numerous workshops.

We presented the first Tim Mantoani Memorial Award at SSA13 last November and Samy's Camera stepped up to the plate to sponsor it. Workshop participants decided the winner, voting for that person that demonstrated the spirit that Tim considered important: Professionalism, hard work, selflessness, teamwork and good cheer.

We have a page dedicated to Tim's memory at our website:

Thanks again to Samy's Camera for their dedication to the Sports Shooter Academy and to photography education.

For more about Tim, here are links to some videos we produced at the workshops he was involved in:
