This is a presentation that I did at the Apple Store in Berlin. I wasn’t allow to record the presentation itself, so I re-recorded at home. So, unfortunately you’re not going to be able to see me reenact all my shoots as I did for this gig. But I hope you’ll find it informative. It begins with how I got into sports photography, my approach to sports photography as a business, how I shot certain shots, and many other topics that should keep you busy for an hour.
Enjoy the show.

Thank you for this. I’ve been an aspiring sports photographer for the past 30+ years (as you say there’s very little money to be made in this industry unless you are will to sacrifice time away from your family, which I was not). I contract mostly with colleges when they travel to Southern California.
My son just spent the summer play baseball in Germany and I became friendly with a number of the photographers there. I sent them the information to you presentation at the Apple Store hoping some were able to make it.
Yours and Matts philosophies are right in line with mine. I’ve referred a number of colleagues to your blog and hopefully they are donating to your cause. The information you give is not available in manynplaces. Thank you
You must be the lost son of Matt. :)
I really appreciate the shout out and the word of mouth. We try to grow as organically as possible and people like you helping us spread the word is extremely valuable to us. So thank you.
We try to make it simple (and difficult) for sports photographers to better their skills. More people the merrier, so please keep on telling people about us and we will keep on creating great to mediocre contents. :)
