Call in sick, ditch class for the day --- the Sports Shooter Academy Luau returns on February 27, 2013. The Sports Shooter Academy Luau is a day of photography, education, inspiration and fun, featuring presentations by top professionals in the business.

The speaker line-up includes:
- Todd Bigelow (Southern California freelance corporate & editorial photographer)
The Business of Photography
- Lucas Gilman (Colorado-based outdoor and adventure photographer)
Photographing the Great Outdoors ... and Marketing Your Work
- Ian Ray (PocketWizard Senior Technician)
Demystifying Hyper-Sync - High Shutter Speed Strobe Photography
- Robert Deutsch and Robert Hanashiro (USA TODAY staff photographer)
Iron Photographer Lighting Challenge: Big Lights vs. Speedlights
(Think: Food Network show Iron Chef meets location portrait photography.)

Doors open at 10AM and the first presentation of the afternoon session will begin at 1PM; the evening presentation will begin at 7:30PM. The SSA Luau is open to the public, pre-registration is necessary to attend.

- Nikon Professional Services will be conducting a free clean & check clinic and showing off their latest professional cameras, lenses, speedlights and accessories.
- Samy's Camera will be running their mini store with specials for attendees.
- PocketWizard will have a technical representative in attendance, showing off products
(including the new PocketWizard Plus III and FlexTTI) and answering your remote questions.
- Honl Photo will be demo'ing their cool lighting mods.

If you remember the original Sports Shooter Workshop & Luau, this is a continuation of that fun photography event, featuring inspirational and educational presentations that are geared to help the seasoned pro, beginner and student.

The Sports Shooter Academy Luau is being held in conjunction with the Sports Shooter Academy workshop, which begins the following day. We hope to hold more events of this type in the future, so I hope you can join us on February 27, 2013 in the O.C.!

The Sports Shooter Academy Luau is sponsored by Nikon Professional Services, Samy's Camera and Honl Photo.
