Professional Sports Photography Tips

Today's post is from Picture Correct and is by a leading sports photographer. In addition to some useful tips and great sports photos the main part of the post is an interesting and informative hour and a half long video.

Much like it’s subject matter, sports photography is one of the most competitive styles of photography. There are limited spaces available to photographers at many sporting events and those fortunate enough to get a press pass are usually competing with other highly skilled photographers in hopes of taking a photograph worthy a Sports Illustrated cover. 

Damian Strohmeyer, professional sports photographer, has done just that numerous times  and he is here to share some of his experiences and advice with those who have an interest in the genre. Strohmeyer’s presentation is about an hour and a half long and packed full of great photos and helpful tips. Have a look: Professional Sports Photography Tips – PictureCorrect
