Sports Photography has followed a "single image" trajectory for decades. In fact, coverage of sports has whittled down to an almost -like formula process - photographer attends event, photographer captures two or three good action shots; photographer tops off the day with a pic of jubilation - or dejection - and the job is done! This cutting-edge online photography course, taught by an award-winning visual storyteller of sports, shows you how to change all that in your approach to sports - to think and work "outside the box" and to tell the story of sports and their personalities in a richer and more dynamic way.
