This year I was honored to assist the famously talented Mark Reis and a staff of world-class sports photographers at the Summit Sports Workshop held in Denver, Colo. July 10-15, 2019.
Students delved into lighting for sports and high-speed-sync flash techniques, light painting, remote camera operation, athletic portraits, archiving and file management, portfolio reviews, and more!
