Adventure Photography Workshop at the Maine Media Workshops

I hate to keep talking about workshops here on the blog so much this month, but I have pretty much all of my workshops for the rest of the year coming up in the next few months. Hence, that is why there have been so many workshop announcements this month. With that said, there are a some spots left in my Adventure Photography Workshop, which takes place on August 19-25th next month at the Maine Media Workshops. If you would like to sign up for the workshop we will have a great time and it will be a week-long intensive workshop. I hope to see you out in Maine! Here are the details:

Adventure sports photography can be an adventure in itself, involving breathtaking locations, extreme conditions and working with elite athletes in risky situations. It requires a host of skills, including technical excellence with the camera, familiarity with the sport and the ability to keep your goals and safety in mind throughout.

Designed for intermediate to experienced photographers, this workshop concentrates on creating unique adventure sports and lifestyle images. We focus on outdoor sports like: kayaking, mountain biking and trail running. Using athletes as our models and Maine’s coastal landscape as our backdrop, we explore innovative ways to capture the essence of each sport. Topics covered during the week include research and preparation, composition and camera angles, equipment selection and use, using natural light, fill flash and battery-powered strobes, and autofocus techniques.

We also learn how to work with athletes who are putting themselves at risk and how to capture the intensity of the action. Each day finds us out in new locations and in the classroom editing and critiquing images, and meeting one-on-one with Michael. In addition, Michael shares his insights and experiences in the adventure marketplace, including career development, portfolios and how to shoot for stock, editorial, and commercial clients.

Students are required to shoot digitally and laptops are encouraged (highly recommended).
