From the frozen tundra of Green Bay’s Lambeau Field to the Big House at the University of Michigan, from Fenway Park to Yankee Stadium, from sweaty gyms to freezing sidelines, Damian will share photos that have captivated sports fans the world over. Damian’s program will help you fine tune the process of capturing action photos with technical tips and practical advice about covering fast moving events.
