New York-based photographer James Farrell will present an active sports photography workshop on the Northwest College campus from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday.
Farrell will kick off the two-part workshop at 9:30 am in the Fagerberg building, room 70, with a lighting and pose demonstration with athlete trappers.
After a short lunch break, he will resume by demonstrating how to prepare and edit his footage from the morning session for submission to sports magazines and corporate clients using Capture One and Photoshop.
This event is free and open to the public. Workshop participants will need to wear a face mask and social distancing.
âWorking with active subjects is my specialty,â Farrell said. âPhotographing dynamic images that give the true vision of what it means to be an athlete is always my goal.â
Throughout his career he has worked with clients like Peloton, FitBit, NFL, ESPN, Runner’s World, Fitness Magazine, B cycling Magazine and Muscle & Fitness.
Farrell brings his expertise to share with photography students in the NWC’s Photographic Communication Program as well as sports photography enthusiasts in the Big Horn Basin.
Funding for Farrell’s Visit is provided by a Perkins Grant, dedicated to bringing current technologies and industry trends into classrooms focused on delivering out-of-the-box programs.
