Women’s Action Sports Photography Workshop

Have you ever wondered how the photographers capture incredible mountain bike action shots from the trails? Well, now you can find out with Shextreme‘s action sports photography workshop taking place at Pedalabikeaway in the Forest of Dean.

Shextreme was created by Dr. Ruth Farrar who is also the founder of the World’s first Women in Adventure film festival; Shextreme Film Festival. Her aim is to provide a positive solution to improve gender equality and diversity in adventure filmmaking and photography by training up the next generation of female adventure media makers. This workshop will provide you with the skills necessary to effectively frame in the field with an industry professional. Using rad female mountain bikers for models, you can boost your photography portfolio and enhance your artistic eye while learning how to work with athletes to capture the most dynamic shots.

After a few hours on the trails, Shextreme will host an editing masterclass that will help teach you how to bring your photos to life with the use of software and apps so that you can push your photography to the limits. This will be followed by a seminar on how to harness the power of social media, get your photos noticed and published in magazines.

Save yourself years of trying to figure it all out on your own by joining this awesome supportive workshop sharing insider industry advice directly from the pros. By the end of the day, you’ll come away with some great action shots for your photography portfolio, along with professional tips and techniques for boosting your profile, reaching a wider audience and getting your work noticed by brands, athletes and fellow creatives.
