Sports Illustrated photographer Damian Strohmeyer will take you on a trip through his twenty plus years photographing sports for the world's largest sports magazine. From the frozen tundra of Green Bay's Lambeau Field to The Big House at the University of Michigan, from Fenway Park to Yankee Stadium, from sweaty gyms to frozen sidelines Strohmeyer will bring you the photos and the memories from the places and events that captivate the world's sports fans. Super Bowls, World Series, Stanley Cups and Olympics the photographic journey will be as rich in learning moments as it is in memorable photos. The presentation is geared toward photographers of all levels, photo enthusiasts, and sports fans of all types.
After learning about various sports and how to capture moments in them in the morning session, the afternoon session will be a completely hands on opportunity to practice those skills at an actual event with constructive feedback on site from me. If we have time we will then edit and critique the images we have shot when we finish the actual photography.
