Ever wanted to shoot professional sports from the sidelines?! Now’s your chance! Join Canon Live Learning Orange County for this once-in-a-lifetime immersive learning experience with Major League Soccer’s LA Galaxy Team Photographer, Robert Mora and Canon’s Lead Trainer, Jon Lorentz. This hands-on workshop is for individuals interested in all levels of sports photography. During the three-day workshop, you’ll learn the latest sports photography techniques and Canon technologies that enable sports photographers to capture that decisive moment in time—AND you’ll have the unique opportunity to photograph from the sidelines of BOTH an LA Galaxy (MLS) AND an LA Galaxy II (USL) soccer game!
