Photographers and photo editors from two of the country's leading sports photo creators will team up as instructors for the 13th annual Sports Photography Workshop in Colorado Springs, CO, June 25 through June 30.

The Sports Photography Workshop, run by Denver-based photography and publishing agency Rich Clarkson and Associates, LLC., announced that workshop instructors Steve Fine, Director of Photography at Sports Illustrated, and Mike Powell, Chief Operating Officer and former Director of Photography of Allsport, will be joined by: Maureen Grise, Sports Illustrated Associate Picture Editor; Porter Binks, Sports Illustrated Associate Picture Editor; Brandon Lopez, Managing Editor for Allsport USA; Jim Gund, Sports Illustrated photographer; Jamie Squire, Allsport staff photographer; Bill Eppridge, Sports Illustrated staff photographer; Dave Black, freelance photographer; and Joey Terrill, commercial and illustrative photographer.

"Although workshop participants will be photographing daily and having those photographs critiqued by the staff each morning, the workshop focuses primarily on providing the participants with an outlet to learn how to become better photographers. Becoming a better photographer does not only mean learning how to take better pictures but also how to become a better business person," said Jennifer Finch, workshop director.

Workshop sponsors will also be on hand throughout the week to make the Sports Photography Workshop a memorable experience for those in attendance. Kodak Professional will provide film and processing to workshop participants while Nikon Professional Services will provide loaner equipment and technical expertise, and Energizer will provide each participant with a supply of batteries for the week.

Photographers interested in learning more about the workshop can contact workshop director Jennifer Finch at 1-800-745-3211 or visit the Rich Clarkson and Associates, LLC, web site at


* For a complete review of Canon's new EOS D30, cruise on over to Phil Askey's website at:
(As noted by Jeff Snyder earlier in this issue, this is NOT to be confused with Canon' answer to the Nikon D1. But the D30 MAY offer us some insight into what kind of feature set Canon is considering for any future professional digital camera.)

* And for a look at Kodak's new DCS620x, (the new super low light digital camera) go to Rob Galbraith always informative DigiNews site at:

* Also, Epson announced this week a new photo printer, the Stylus Photo 2000P which boasts a "lightfastness rated at more than 200 years under fluorescent lighting conditions, ina glass frame, before noticeable fading occurs."

The 2000P has a resolution of 1440 x 720 dpi and a large printable area up to 13`` x 44''.

For more information on the Epson Sylus Photo you can read a press release at:

This printer may not be for everyone, it has a rumored price tag of around $900 and apparently isn't a speed demon in churning out color prints.

The Epson Photo Stylus Photo 850 and 1250 were announced earlier in the year at the annual Photo Marketing Association convention.
