Peter Read Miller is one of the most acclaimed sports photographers in the world, and this workshop looks like a great opportunity for anyone who wants to learn more about how to shoot sports-related assignments. Four additional instructors and speakers are joining Peter Read Miller during the workshop, which will undoubtably add to the value of the workshop (see below for more details). The workshop, being held in Denver, CO, is limited to 25 participants, and the press release for the event, containing additional details, is copied below:
Los Angeles, CA â€“ March 8, 2011 — World Class Sports Illustrated Photographer Peter Read Miller has announced he will conduct his annual Sports Photography Workshop in Denver, Colorado on April 4-10, 2011. The workshop, now in its 7th year and limited to only 25 attendees, will provide a personal and hands-on approach to teaching a variety of shooting and lighting techniques that have helped Miller’s photos grace more than 100 Sport Illustrated covers. Workshop participants will have an opportunity to apply their new skills to live sporting events throughout the weeklong workshop. Photographers interested in learning more about the workshop or registering to attend can visit Peter Read Miller Sports Photography Workshop.
In addition to receiving expert tutelage from Miller, attendees will also receive additional instruction from other industry notables including Steve Fine, Director of Photography at Sports Illustrated, Grant Leighton, advertising / portrait photographer and instructor at U. of Colorado (Denver), photographer / videographer Max Morse, and Shawn Cullen, lighting technician at Sports Illustrated.
Learning to take better “action” photographs is only one aspect of the workshop. Attendees will also learn how to properly light subjects using strobes — in the studio and on location — arena lighting and how to set up and use remote cameras.
“It’s very rewarding for me to see the quality of work students are producing toward the end of the workshop and their enthusiasm and passion for photography makes the entire experience both educational and a lot of fun,” explains Peter Read Miller. “Everyone leaves the workshop a better sports photographer and some have gone on to find work with professional sports teams, Getty Images and other newswires.”
Tuition for the workshop is $1,495 and includes all instruction, one-on-one portfolio review with Peter Read Miller, and all model/location fees. Workshop attendees are responsible for their own travel arrangements including air and hotel. Special hotel rates have been made with the Marriott in Denver.
