Sports and Action Photography
Ray Taggart, our Guest Photographer this month has many years of experience photographing the outdoors, Sports and Action of every kind.
I asked Ray if he would jot down a few lines to give us a preview of what's to come....In Ray's own words....
"I may not have shot for Sports Illustrated…. yet. But I have shot professionally for the PGA, the ISU(International Skating Union), the PBR (Pro Bull Riders association) US Speed Skating, US Soccer, the MLS and Real Salt Lake. I have photographed 4 World Cup skating events, the US Olympic trials, the MLS Cup Championship, 2 World Cup soccer matches, and I’ve covered international soccer events in 3 different countries. I’ve gone back stage and photographed Bill Cosby, The Eagles, Robin Gibb (Bee Gees), and many legendary Jazz musicians. I photographed Paul McCartney and Kenny Chesney, Journey, Stix, KISS, Foreigner, 38 Special, REO Speedwagon and a lot more. I’ve learned a lot about shooting in weird light, in high energy and high stress environments. "
"So, I have a few tips and tricks that I have picked up from some world class photographers and well as learned on my own. See what equipment I use and how I use it. We’ll talk about workflow issues and deadlines. I’ll talk about how to make money at this and licensing issues and how to get into different events. We’ll laugh, we’ll cry, we’ll learn…… but mostly we’ll laugh. "
Come to the studio and listen to Ray as he shares his experiences with you. Join us for an hour and a half of exciting, action packed fun.
