All Skill Levels Welcome
Join Hunt’s Photo Education for an action packed photography walk! On this walk, we will be giving instruction and photographing the fast-paced Southwick National Motocross at The Wick 338! We will discuss basic settings for the different scenarios we will be in (see below), including exposure, composition, focusing, and how to effectively capture the mood and action of the day. All skill levels are welcome- be prepared for a fun day!
We will arrive at the Wick at 8am. We will have tickets to have access to the pits at the track until noontime, where we will have the ability to photograph much of the preparation leading up to the practice runs and race. We will also have the ability to photograph around the track during the practice runs, which run until about noon. We will only have pit access until noon, after which we will still be able to photograph the races through in the afternoon. Your ticket will give you the ability to stay at the track for the entire afternoon; our instructors will be on-hand until about 3pm.
What to expect
There will be a lot to photograph in the morning, from pre-race preparation, such as bike maintenance and taping, to the practice runs by the bikes. In the afternoon, race photography will be our emphasis, but you will also be able to photograph reaction shots from the eclectic crowd. We are coordinating this event with the Wick 338–we encourage you to visit their site to see some of the photographic opportunities.
This event will be a unique experience! Join us for a truly action packed day!
