Sports photography can be considered my "medium of choice". Very rewarding, yet difficult and demanding, sometimes really close to the subject itself, maybe.
Sports photography has a lot to teach: you will learn to anticipate actions, both in a general way, and in correlation to the sport you are shooting. Every bit of your gear must be accurately prepared and double checked, as if your life depended on it. Your life won't depend on your gear, probably, but your pictures will. And actions aren't repeatable, nor anybody will pay attention to you if you don't snap the picture of the winning team cheering. You can't ask for a second chance. You will also learn to respect boundaries and other photographers, and take the best possible pictures without invading somebody else's space (or background).
|I have been photographing sports since 2006, and regularly since 2008. I have covered many different disciplines and events, both at local and sometimes national level. I am mostly experienced in Ice Hockey and Volley photography, but I have some experience also in Handball, 5-man Soccer, Track Athletics and Martial Arts. I regard any sports I have never photographed as an entirely new subject, and I demand myself to improve each time I am exposed to it, by learning its dynamics and becoming more and more experienced.|
