Thanks Rich for passing this along!


Labor Day Weekend, September 2010
Lime Rock Park, Conn.

Capturing the speed and beauty of auto racing is one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of sports photography. The Lime Rock Park Motorsports Photography Workshop offers you the opportunity to learn and improve your skills – taught by the top motorsports photographers working today – at the most scenic race track in North America.
Lime Rock is offering both one-­‐day and two-­‐day workshops during Historic Festival 28, September 3-­‐6.

Composition, choosing locations, camera angles, techniques, equipment selection and understanding light are among the topics discussed briefly in the classroom and practiced extensively track-­‐side during the one-­‐day workshop. Students will work with each instructor and learn their individual approach to photographing motorsports.

The two-­‐day workshop adds flash photography, learning to interact with drivers and crew, discussions on car-­‐to-­‐car photography, rigging and shooting on-­‐car cameras, and photographing a race “on assignment.” Each day will end with a review and critique of each student’s best images. The workshop is designed for intermediate to experienced photographers. Each student must own a digital SLR camera with interchangeable lenses and possess a basic understanding of how a camera functions. Further requirements needed at the workshop include: two digital media (compact flash card, SD card, etc.), rain gear, long pants, and closed toed shoes.

Nikon Professional Services will offer on-site support and a wide variety of cameras and lenses for photographers to test throughout the day. (Owning a Nikon camera is not a requirement to attend the workshop.) The Nikon gear is not meant to replace your personal equipment, but simply be an added benefit to workshop participants.

Instructors include Rick Dole, George Tiedemann and Robert Laberge.

o George Tiedemann has 30 + years covering motorsports as a contract photographer for Sports Illustrated and ESPN the Magazine. He has covered more than 25 Daytona 500s, 20 Indy 500s, 4 Olympic Games, and numerous Super Bowls and World Series. He is a contributing photographer to Corbis Photo Agency.
