Students will learn to think like a pro shooter to help them understand how to improve their photography skills.
Combine technical mastery, artistry, game or event knowledge, and understanding of the human condition to make great photos.
Learn what is possible when you combine passion with knowledge.

Using sports as a platform, this course provides beginner
and novice level photographers a foundation for shooting dynamic subjects in a
variety of settings. The student will learn valuable insights into getting
those professional level photos at sporting events, music venues, plays,
presentations, re-enactments, and many others.

In order to shoot like a pro, you have to first think like a
pro. Knowing what camera settings to use is an absolute necessity, but it is
the equivalent of knowing how to use the features of your car. Knowing how to
turn on the wipers will not make you a better driver. In a sense, this course
assumes you know how to start your vehicle. It is my job to help you become a
Formula One driver.

Many forms of photography rely on the photographer to
manipulate the subject and environment in which he, or she, is shooting. This
course helps you understand what to do when your subject and environment are
totally out of your control. You will learn how to anticipate and compose great
photos in the most difficult of shooting conditions.

Action photography (Sports, street, weddings, candid, event,
and basic photojournalism) is not a spectator sport. If you have a desire to learn
how you can take great photos of dynamic subjects in interesting venues, then
this course is for you.

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
