Still Photography Workshop - Shoot the Toronto Football Club game, June 7, 2014









We expect to have the new A77 2 for this event. It should be great for soccer.

Great sports photography demands great lenses and lightning fast cameras and Sony offers both. This workshop is a chance to try out the latest Sony cameras with the latest top of the line lenses. 

I have a couple photo passes for the Toronto Football Club game at BMO Field. If you're a Sony camera user, or even a Canikon user but would like to try the latest Sony camera, this workshop is for you. Passes are limited but add your name to the waiting list because I often get additional passes.

Bring your own Sony camera, extra memory cards and extra batteries, and a monopod, we'll have additional gear for you to try and Sony staff will be on hand to answer questions about your photography and help you create great images.  You don't have to own a Sony camera to attend this event but you do have to use one at the event, so Nikon and Canon users are invited. If you don't have a Sony camera to use, let me know and I'll arrange one for you.

This event is outside and runs rain, shine or bugs. Please dress for the event. You will have to sign a release at the event saying if you get hit with a ball or injured in any way, it's not my fault. You will be standing on the sidelines along the endzone for the whole game, with a press pass, there is no seat. 

Attendance and "No Shows". If you can't make the event please cancel 24 hours before the start of the event. If you fail to cancel you'll be recorded as a "No Show" and if this continues, you'll be dropped from future events.

    Hi everyone, though not able to attend this Sony event, if those on the wait list are interested, I am selling my season ticket seats for this game. Face value, $120 for the pair, north side, top row behind our net. Please let me know ASAP. Thanks!

    How does the wait list work? I was on top of the wait list last week when there were 4 confirmed going. Now there are 8 confirmed going and I am still "on top of" the wait list. Or I read too much into the order of the wait list?

      to give everyone a fair chance to join a meetup the waitlist is not first come first serve. We also record last minute "no shows" from previous events which affect chances to attending future events.

      Thanks for the clarification.

    I have an a65 and a[masked]GII. I'd love to attend this, especially if I can use my[masked]GII with the new a77II, those should make for a killer combination! Naturally, I have a monopod as well :o)

    For an event whose registration was supposed to open up June 2nd, this one got full fast. Are the "Registration will open on xx date" comments accurate or just place holders?

    May 5, 2014

    • Rob S.

      Just place holders till I find out how many spots I can get.

    Lifetime soccer player here and TFC fan since their first season, hope space will open up =)

    I hope that a spot opens up for me as I recently acquired the A77 and I am in the market for a telephoto lens. It would be great to try out a few lenses before deciding which one to get.

    I'd like to try new A77 2

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
