The third week of July, forty sports photographers from all over the USA assembled at H&H for our annual H&H sports boot camp. We spent 2 ½ days learning the ins and outs of the sports photography business. We had an amazing lineup of speakers this year sharing their wealth of knowledge and experience with the group. Leigh LaForest, of JL Photo, discussed bids and presentations. Jim Seers, H&H sports consultant, shared his passion in sales with the group. He also shared tons of information on marketing, products, and commissions along with being the MC of the event! Jeff Edwards, who filled in for the ill John Pittman, discussed hiring and the business side of sports. On the last day, John and Cindy LaBarge, J&C Imaging, shared how they handle posed action sports-from lighting, photographing, designing, and sales!
The highlights of the camp included hands on time at a ball field with models, networking, handouts and guides along with an evening at the Royals game!
We had an amazing time getting to know everyone, helping, training, and discussing EVERYTHING about sports photography! We are currently working on next year’s events, so stay tuned for more information. We would love to have you attend in 2014!
