Sports Shooters Listing
Hey folks, I believe some of you attended Jed's Sports Photography Workshop over the last weekend of January - now I'm starting this thread to know who's interested to join me when I go to sportshoot events.

This is a typical user's setup:
1. (D)SLR preferably because of the "machine gunning" that may be more evident in sports than anything else :D
2. f/2.8 lens (70-200mm range) or f/1.8 lens (f/1.8 are rarely used, slower lenses can be overcome with high ISO except when you want OBVIOUS bokeh) - compact digicams are still welcome anytime!

If you would like me to inform you of any upcoming sports shoot that I do not deem open enough that I inform *everyone* on Clubsnap, but you would like to go, please put your CS User ID and your contact number below. Once I have confirmed something I would be going to, I will PM each and every one of you. I have already done so for the SRRR Canoepolo Finals held last weekend. Some events may restrict us to a small presence, so even after I PM you, I hope to get a fast response so that you will be in the list of photogs I may lead along.

Update:
Right now, the list is growing and growing, so there may be a situation where some shoots I organize will have a quota on the number of photogs (we can't possibly cram 200 photogs at a single event, right? ;) ) and so I may PM everyone, and the first XXX number of photogs to reply will be included for the shoot. I'm not good at explaining, but I think you guys get the idea, yeah? ;)

Requirement:
1. I need to validate your interest, by viewing your current portfolio of sports shoots, because some sports events may be no-nonsense kind. Don't worry if you feel it's not up to scratch or what, I just need to verify that you are a sports fan, that's more important.
2. Patience and endurance to last through the event so that you can still get at least a few good keeper shots.
3. High level of mastery of your own camera.
4. Be "on the ball" yourself and check your PM regularly.

Disclaimer: I'm not responsible for any condensation, damage, rain, financial loss, or any other form or injury/loss that may happen during the shoot. Be warned! :D

Sehsuan - please refrain from posting potentially inflammatory items and which may result in legal action by way of defamation in your posts.

Please check your PM from me regarding the group. :)

I will update this very first post to reflect the most current list of photographers who are interested, so what you have to do is just to post below my original post and state your interest, or that you wish to take yourself off the list. Please also note that I am NOT obliged to do you favours etc, because I'm already doing you guys a favour by updating you guys on a volunteer basis. OK, OK, so I'm lonely when I'm the Lone Gunman to appear at an event... :bsmilie:

Disclaimer: Please note that we are in no way, Official photographers for any event, so we are more like members of the public, except that we are a group with a special interest. Please do not approach the event organizers and convey the understanding that you/we are the official photographer(s) when we're not. Thank you! :heart:

Happy Sports Shooting! :)

nemotohp and biscuit, would you have any basic sports shots you have? just to verify you have been trying to shoot sports first :)
Hi sheshuan I have shot a number of national matches for AP, but would be fun to have some kaki to go with when i am not doing anything official. Shot for marathonphotos as well.

I've taken dirt bikes and kayaking photos before. And i would like to participate in sports photography and learn from you guys.

Can someone provide dates for upcoming sports events? There are indoor rowing, biathlons, national cheerleading competitions in Feb and Mar.

Hi
The upcoming Sports Events for Feb and Mar are rather interesting. Is anyone interested? I will try to shoot the rockclimbing, gymnastics (if non-officials are allowed), handball, cycling.

Does anyone has the canoe polo photos? I would like to see them. Thank you.
