Sports Shooter Academy Photos on Big West Conference Site
By Sports Shooter Staff

The Sports Shooter Academy is just a few short weeks away and everyone can look at the photographs that the participants and faculty will be making on the big West Conference's web site.

Participants in this first-ever hands-on workshop from Sports Shooter will be filing photos to the site "on deadline" after each of the evening events.

"This will give The Academy's participants, especially the students, a chance for some real life experience in producing strong, story-telling images on a deadline," said Sports Shooter's Robert Hanashiro.

Thirty participants and six faculty members of The Academy will be covering Big West Conference men's and women's basketball, tennis, water polo, baseball and volleyball Feb, 17 - 19. The public can view galleries from these events at

The Academy will conclude with an awards brunch on Sunday Feb. 20 with prizes donated by Think Tank Photo. Awards will be given out to the best photograph and the best body of work produced during the workshop.

The Sports Shooter Academy faculty is: Matt Brown, Southern California freelance photographer, Wally Skalij of the Los Angeles Times, Darrell Miho, former Sports Illustrated lighting tech and now a Southern California freelancer, Dave Black a Colorado-based phtographer and Hanashiro. Brooks Institute of Photography students Max Morse and Jeff Bottari are volunteers assisting the faculty.

This workshop is one of the first to be held in cooperation with an NCAA Division I institution.

Nikon is the primary sponsor of the Sports Shooter Academy.
