Sports Shooter News & Notes

Sports Shooter Academy Boot Camp

Freelance photographer Dave Honl and Michael Goulding from the Orange County Register were added to the faculty of the upcoming Sports Shooter Academy Boot Camp it was recently announced on

Also on the workshop faculty with Honl and Goulding are freelance photographer Matt Brown, Robert Beck from Sports Illustrated, Myung J. Chun from the Los Angeles Times and USA TODAY's Robert Hanashiro.

The Sports Shooter Academy Boot Camp is sponsored by Nikon. Also supporting the workshop are Dyna-Lite. Think Tank Photo and Samy's Camera.

The Boot Camp is a two-day hands-on, shooting education program with a different emphasis each day. Participants can register for single day or attend both days.

Day 1 on Friday, September 5 will be a football workshop with participants shooting both "American football" and futball (aka: soccer). Boot Campers will cover the opening day of a college soccer tournament at Cal State Fullerton in the afternoon and in the evening, for those that want to shoot some football, we will lead a group to the Santa Ana Bowl for the Santa Ana College vs. Cypress College game. Because we will be shooting soccer, we will have a remotes class at the stadium prior to the start of the first game. The evening will be one-on-one editing and critique sessions with the workshop faculty and the best work from each participant will be shown and awards given out for the top photographs.

Day 2 on Saturday, September 6 will be a daylong lighting workshop/shoot out. Participants will break in small groups of 6 - 8 and groups will rotate through different portrait scenarios. Athletes and models will be at different locations for the participants to pose and light under the guidance of the Boot Camp faculty. Lighting equipment from speedlites to studio strobes will be used to make portraits in the various set ups. The evening will be one-on-one editing and critiques with the workshop faculty and the best work from each participant will be shown and awards given out for the top photographs.
