Gear Talk with Kent Locke | Sports & Action Photography

Sports and action is an exciting, challenging and dynamic field of photography.  It requires that the photographer has not only a good understanding of the sport itself, but also knows what gear to use and how to use it effectively to capture the action.

In this talk we will discuss what makes a great photograph and learn what gear is necessary to capture that perfect moment.

We’ll have an awe-inspiring selection of long lenses, newly released cameras, and latest tech available to play and engage with – this will be like the candy store of photographic gear! Our Orms gear specialists will be right there to answer any questions you might have!
