When starting out in Sports Photography it’s difficult to begin finding your creative style. Going out and practicing with friends or local athletes is the best way to start building your portfolio. But what happens when you want to take your images to the next level?
Join Red Bull Photographer Dustin Snipes, as he takes you on a journey through the creative process behind photographing 3 sports at 5 locations with 5 athletes. He'll be working with students to show the best ways to communicate and inspire the athletes he's photographing, as well as how to maximize time spent with them.

Loved all the ideas and why he's positioned his athletes the way he did, and positioned the lighting.
I met Dustin a few years ago at and NPAC conference. It's nice to see him doing these teaching videos. His work is very inspiring to me.

Less talk and all action.. This is the best
no mumbo jumbo talks and straight to practical work..
I really enjoyed the multiple exposure video, the pity is that they are no videos to talk about the post processing of this image.
