Sports Shooter Academy Lighting Luau update
Mantoani and Beck added to Lighting Luau faculty; Evening speaker session to be open to the public

By Sports Shooter Newsletter staff

The COOLEST lighting workshop of the year just got even cooler.

The Sports Shooter Academy Lighting Luau announced the addition of Tim Mantoani and Robert Beck to the faculty. The workshop, April 22-23, 2011, will open the Friday evening session to the public where Mantoani and Beck will make presentations.

The Lighting Luau is a hands-on workshop held in Orange County, Calif. that will give participants the opportunity to shoot portraits in various real-world working situations under the guidance of an award-winning faculty. Also on the Lighting Luau faculty are So Cal freelance photographers Matt Brown and Dave Honl, along with Sports Shooter founder and USA TODAY staff photographer Robert Hanashiro.

Mantoani is an editorial and commercial photographer based in San Diego. Beck is a long-time staff photographer with Sports Illustrated.

Samy’s Camera is sponsoring the open speaker night. Nikon, USA and Dynalight are supporting the Lighting Luau, providing equipment for participants to use during their shoots.

“Having Tim and Robert involved in the Lighting Luau not only adds two visionary photographers to our faculty mix,” said Hanashiro, “It adds two wonderful teachers. These are two great guys who are willing to share their knowledge and experience.

“Samy’s Camera stepping up to help me make our evening session into an open event gives us a chance to share their Tim and Robert’s work, insight and inspiration to a bigger audience. I think this will be a fabulous evening!”

Registration for the Lighting Luau will begin in a week. Details for registration and to the Mantoani/Beck presentations will be available on the workshop website:
