About Action Sports Photography with Art Brewer – Skateboarding
FEBRUARY, 27, COSTA MESA, CALIFORNIA
In the 1970’s California Skateboard culture, along with the dynamic influence of skate photography, left an indelible mark on America’s cultural identity. Skateboarding is all about motion, skateboard photography is all about capturing the fluid aspect of the sport. During this hands-on course, Art Brewer will teach you the skills necessary to not only photograph skateboarding, but also a variety of other sports and action. If you are interested in shooting surfing, in-line skateboarding, soccer, baseball or anything else, Art will demonstrate how to best capture the shot that will tell the story of the action. You will learn about the gear you need, optimal camera settings that allow you to stop motion to achieve sharp focus, aesthetics and technical aspects of skateboard and action photography and composition techniques. This is an intimate, hands-on class with multiple skaters and on hand and students will be broken into small groups with ample opportunities for capturing the skaters in action.
**Students will start at the Santa Ana Samy’s store and will move to Hurley’s Indoor Private Skate Park in Costa Mesa to photograph the skateboarders.
Lunch will be provided as well.

Art Brewer Bio:
“In the language of images, the photographs of Art Brewer are known for speaking with penetrating truth, enllivened with an edgy wit. As a subjective experience, his images thrill us with their presence, bringing us somehow back into ourselves.“– Drew Kampionv Brewer began his career as a teen shooting local Laguna surfers and freelancing for Surger Magaine. A self-taught photgrapher who once studued with Ansel Adams, he has circled the globe countless times chasing the worlds’s best waves and the surfers who chase them. When the surf is lacking, he spends his time shooting portraits, travel images, underwater creatures and the number one sport that surfers do on land: skateboarding. Brewer has evolved and has established himself as a top commercial photographer. These days the athletes meet him on location or in studio for clients such as: Esquire, Playboy, Quiksilver, Muscle & Fitness, Pepsi, Dasani, Surfer, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and the list goes on…
