Sports Shooter Academy VI Updates
By Sports Shooter Staff
Rod Mar, Michael Goulding and Dave Honl have just been added to the Sports Shooter Academy VI faculty. The hands-on, shooting workshop will be held April 8-12, 2009 in Southern California.
"I am absolutely thrilled to be part of the Sports Shooter Academy," said Mar.
This will be be Mar's first time as part of the Sports Shooter Academy, while Goulding has been a regular member of the faculty and Honl was involved in last fall's SSA Boot Camp.
Mar, a long-time sports photographer on the staff of the Seattle Times, recently left the paper to start a new career freelancing. Goulding is a staff photographer with the Orange County Register, while Honl is a freelance photojournalist based in Southern California. Honl will be leading several small strobe/speedlite portrait lighting classes at SSA VI.
Sports Shooter Academy VI has filled all of the available spots, but is accepting applications for those that want to be placed on the waiting list. Any openings due to dropouts or non-payment of tuition will be made only from the waiting list.
The Sports Shooter Academy is a 5-day workshop that enables the participants to shoot NCAA Division I sports through an agreement with the Big West Conference and members schools Cal State Fullerton, Cal State Long Beach and U.C. Irvine.
Each evening SSA participants will review their work one-on-one with the faculty who will help them edit and select photos that will be shown in the daily slideshow. The best photo of the day will be recognized and awards will be given out at a Sunday brunch for the best single photograph and the best body of work made during SSA VI.
Mar, Goulding and Honl join previously announced faculty members: Matt Brown, Southern California freelance photographer, Wally Skalij and Myung J. Chun, staff photographers at the Los Angeles Times and Robert Hanashiro , Sports Shooter founder and USA TODAY staff photographer.
Sports Shooter Academy VI is sponsored by Nikon, which enable college and university students to attend the workshop tuition-free.
Other companies supporting SSA VI are Think Tank Photo and Samy's Camera.
In addition to NCAA Division I baseball, track & field, volleyball, water polo and tennis, workshop participants will also have the opportunity to shoot boxing, beach volleyball and horse racing at the historic Santa Anita Track.
Classroom session topics include: using remote cameras, digital workflow, location portrait lighting and being a professional and business practices.
