My experiences at the Sports Shooter Academy published

Posted in California, PR, sports by bermanphotos on April 1, 2010

This post may have been written on April Fools Day, but this is no joke — founder Robert Hanashiro gave me the opportunity to write about my experiences attending previous sessions of the Sports Shooter Academy, a three-day hands-on sports photography workshop staffed by talented working professional photographers. Now in its 7th year, Sports Shooter Academy will take place in Southern California next week.

The article was published today, so please have a look. Sports Shooter Academy: “A Face Melting Experience”
Even if you are not thinking of attending, read my observations — they are useful for all photographers.

I attended SSA V (2008), where I won Best Student Portfolio & Picture of the Day. I had such a good time that I reapplied and attended SSA VI the following year! The workshop is a really great time — I have made some really cool friends out of the experience, grown as a photographer, and above all, learned a lot! The great weather for a week is nice too.

That workshop drove me to search for and make different, unique photos from the competition. The lessons I learned there have stayed with me to this day.
