Teaching at the Track


This summer I am offering very limited opportunities to join me while shooting at the track. Each opportunity will include:

  • Personal instruction, based on your specific needs.
  • Technical tips on exposure, lighting and composition.
  • Logistics on how to time your day at the track so that you get every possible shot for each race.
  • A few "secret" places where the light is magical even in mid-day.
  • A discussion on vision - how can you make your images look like art, and not iPhone snaps?
  • Follow up advice and critique on processing your images is also included (via email or phone).
  • Each day will be limited to a maximum of 3 participants.

Cost per day per attendee: $50.

More dates will be added if these first three fill up. 

If you don't see a date that works for you, let me know. I can try to add a date that does.

You will need:

  • Camera body and long lens in the 70-200 or 70-300 range, extra batteries and memory cards.
  • Very comfortable walking shoes.
  • Weather appropriate clothing - it could be blistering hot and sunny or damp and cold, in Chicago, we just never know.
  • The ability to stand and also move quickly for at least 3 hours, including climbing up and down stairs.
  • Cash to pay for your ticket into the track and for refreshments.
  • I'll send you additional details on how to get there and where to meet after you've registered.
