GFCREW WORKSHOPS

We recently held our first ever GFcrew Workshop in Myrtle Beach, SC. It was limited to 25 students and it sold out. We covered baseball, softball, a track & field meet, adult flag football and a sports portrait session. In addition, we had classroom lectures and critiques led by Peter Read Miller, Zamani Feeling and Steve Fine. We also spent time on the business side of sports photography with a session by Haim Ariav and Matt Winer, co-founders of GFcrew.

 

Here’s some behind the scenes photos of the workshop in action.

FAQ

WHO SHOULD ATTEND THE WORKSHOPS?

The workshop is a great place for anyone who wants to improve the overall quality of your work, especially in sports photography. If you have a passion for photography and an interest in sports, or a passion for sports and an interest in photography, or a passion for both sports and photography, then you are the perfect attendee. If you already shoot sports photography or are trying to get into the business, then this is a great opportunity to become a better sports photographer and further develop your craft.

WHAT PHOTO GEAR SHOULD I BRING TO THE WORKSHOP

You should bring the gear you already use to shoot with. The purpose of this workshop is to teach you how to get the best possible results with the gear you already have. The same is true for lighting and remote gear.

WHAT COMPUTER GEAR SHOULD I HAVE?

Everyone should have a laptop computer (Windows or Mac) with some photo editing software such as Lightroom, Photoshop, Photo Mechanic, ACDsee, or similar program. You should also have memory cards, a card reader, and a USB flash drive. It is also a good idea to bring an external hard drive if you have one, as you will probably end up with more images than your laptop can hold. While this is a shooting technique workshop, it is not a workflow workshop, you will need to download and edit your images on a daily basis.  Everyone will have an opportunity to turn in selected images on their USB drive for a daily anonymous review and critique. The very best images will be showcased on the workshop website and Facebook page.

WHAT ABOUT TRANSPORTATION DURING THE WORKSHOP?

The workshop does not provide transportation to the scheduled sporting events. We highly encourage carpooling or sharing rental cars with other students. The GFcrew Facebook page is the best way for you to communicate with each other and coordinate things like carpooling, rental cars, and sharing hotel rooms.
