John has covered World Cups, a variety of major sporting events and the Commonwealth Games and was one of only two NZ photographers at the Rio Olympics and will be joining us freshly back from the Tokyo Olympics. We can’t wait to hear about his experience as a photographer during the Olympics and as professional sports photographer. What it’s like to work for a wire service and filing images while still on the side-line capturing the action. John will explain how the latest technology allows the rapid turnaround of photos clients now demand. Not to mention the chance to get some pro tips and advice from John and Michael during their workshops.
