ACTION PHOTOGRAPHY BASICS: GREYHOUND DOG RACING$45 registration must be prepaid to Melbourne Cameras in the Winn Dixie shopping center on the corner of Wickham Rd & 192. 3146 West New Haven Ave

DATE: Saturday, March 10,[masked]:30am

Learn to photograph action with local photographer Chris Haber ( as you get special restricted access to Melbourne Greyhound Park 1100 N Wickham Rd, Melbourne, (321)[masked] Saturday, March 10,[masked]:30am we will meet at the entrance of the race track. When they open at 11:45 we will have lunch and a class discussion in the grandstands. MGP has waited table service, hamburgers, hotdogs, a full food menu and a full bar. Racing will begin at 12:30. We may have time to photograph the dogs being weighed in in the morning through the window. We will also shoot the tractors smoothing the sand between races and the dog handlers moving the dogs into their starting positions in the race gate. Races will run until the 18th race at 4:30pm, participants may stay and photograph as much as they want or leave whenever they like.

This is a great chance to learn with a couple weeks left to practice before racing season ends here in Brevard. A couple weeks after this class is over we will likely NEVER SEE LIVE RACING HERE AGAIN due to a bill in the Florida Senate.

BRING: zoom & wide angle lenses, HIGH SPEED memory cards, wired remote, tripod or monopod, hot shoe bubble level, step ladder (if available), camera instruction manual, money for lunch, notebook & pens. Photography related equipment will be available through Melbourne Cameras at a discount to class members. Super zoom & other lenses are also available for rental and sale from Melbourne Cameras at a discount to participants. Camera Screen Loupes and Should Sling straps will be available for sale on site, cash or charge.
