This summer the Olympics comes to the UK - which makes it a great time to brush up on your sports photography skills. BJP has teamed up with the Eyes in Progress workshop to give one reader a free place on its sports photography masterclass, which takes place from 23-26 May in Barcelona.
The workshop will be led by Reuters photographer Eddie Keogh, who has shot seven World Cup finals and won many awards for his work. Nine participants in total will get hands-on practice at football, hockey, athletics and BMX events plus photograph a diving session at the Montjuic swimming pool in Barcelona's former Olympic park. Participants will also be given group critiques, tips on editing and portfolio reviews.
“Iʼve had a passion for photography and sport since I was 17; 31 years on and I still love both," says Keogh. "My goal will be to see you improve your skills and knowledge of sports photography but most importantly, enjoy it. We donʼt pick up our cameras because we have to, we do it because we enjoy taking pictures and seeing the results."
The workshop is aimed at professional photographers or advanced amateurs and usually costs €900. To be considered for the free place, submit a portfolio here by 22 April and include in your project description the words "BJP CONCOURSE". The €100 booking fee will not be required, however please note, air fares and hotel costs will not be covered. Eyes in Progress runs small-size masterclasses in Paris and Barcelona, and other workshops it is running this year will be led by Patrick Zachmann, Joan Fontcuberta and Mark Power.
