ADVENTURE PHOTOGRAPHY WITH MICHAEL CLARK AT THE MAINE MEDIA WORKSHOPS (AUGUST 19-AUGUST 25, 2012)

Designed for intermediate to experienced photographers, this workshop concentrates on creating unique adventure sports and lifestyle images. The workshop focuses on outdoor sports such as rock climbing, sea kayaking, mountain biking and sailing. Using athletes as our models and Maine’s coastal landscape as our backdrop, we explore innovative ways to capture the essence of each sport. Topics covered during the week include research and preparation, composition and camera angles, equipment selection and use, using natural light, fill flash and battery-powered strobes, and autofocus techniques. We also learn how to work with athletes who are putting themselves at risk and how to capture the intensity of the action. Each day finds the students out in new locations and in the classroom editing and critiquing images, and meeting one-on-one with Michael. In addition, Michael shares his insights and experiences in the adventure marketplace, including career development, portfolios and how to shoot for stock, editorial, and commercial clients.
