Fotolia Academy Soccer 2010 - In Berlin

Fotolia makes you fit for the World Cup: Berlin photo workshop starts on May 29th.

Soccer 2010 - step up on your microstock know-how and shoot in a real soccer stadium in Berlin-Tempelhof, under professional guidance, and for a whole day. The soccer workshop is the kick-off event for our new workshop series "Fotolia Academy".

Planning. Shooting. Post Production.
Perfect moving images, strong emotions and optimal perspective: In small teams you learn about ready-made sets and everything that you'll have to consider at an outdoor microstock shooting.
From planning (brainstorming, planning, organizing) on the actual shooting (technology, lighting, models, and props) to post production (post-processing of images, perfect indexing) - a real insight into the entire workflow process of a stock photography shoot.

Your trainer. Your lawn. Your team.
Workshop will be led by the professional photographer Marc Brink Meier, who completed his training at the renowned photographer vocational training center Lette-Verein Berlin. His stock photography career started over ten years as an assistant to Klaus Tiedge - one of the first major German stock photography pioneers - in Cape Town. Brink Meier won the 2008 Gruner & Jahr Photo Award in the category "Documentary."
Marc accompanies you while shooting, and reveals his tips and tricks for perfect photos. You can transfer it directly into practice and increase your skills and perfect portfolio.
The props and actors - experienced amateurs and models - are provided by Fotolia. All you need is your photo equipment.

Join. Learn. Sell.
You'll leave this workshop equipped with valuable experience and great new photos, which you can directly sell exclusively through Fotolia.
