will affect your photography. You will find out about major trade shows in the
industry.



What does it feel like flying in the chase plane of space Ship One, photographing
one of the historical events of your lifetime. How do you hold your breath when
the horses of the Kentucky Derby are coming around the final turn and you alone
are responsible to record this spectacular moment? Do you know what kind of
camera Oscar nominated Jeff Bridges prefers? Do you know how many photographers
cover the Indy 500? What is it like being a photographer in the NFL? You just
have to listen to this outstanding broadcast each week and hear the voices of
these very talented photographers.
