Sports Shooter Academy Lecture Series
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to postpone our in-person workshops. To continue our tradition of sharing and teaching the Sports Shooter Academy has gone virtual … temporarily.
The Sports Shooter Academy Lecture Series continues our goal to educate, inspire and enlighten. This series of virtual presentations brings together a diverse collection of photographers discussing their careers, work and lives.
From sports to international news to projects to rock n roll, the Sports Shooter Academy Lecture Series presentations will appeal to both students and seasoned professionals. All sessions will have plenty of time for questions during and after the presentations making them truly interactive. Rather than cram all of the sessions into a single weekend, we are spreading them out throughout 2022.
Additionally registered participants will have access to the virtual judging of the Sports Shooter Academy Annual Contest. If you cannot make any session your registration fee gives you exclusive access to recordings of all presentations.
