Shextreme Alliance: Action Sports Photography Workshop

Shextreme Alliance is excited to announce our first action sports photography workshop taking place in the Forest of Dean on Sunday, May 19th 2019. This is a fantastic opportunity for aspiring female photographers to learn from industry professionals with our hands-on workshop and masterclass sessions.

Taking place at Pedalabikeaway in the Forest of Dean, this workshop will focus on how to frame in the field with an industry professional. Using rad female mountain bikers for models, you can boost your photography portfolio and enhance your artistic eye while learning how to work with athletes to capture the most dynamic shots effectively.

After a morning on the trails, our editing masterclass will teach you how to bring your photos to life with the use of software and apps so that you can push your photography to the limits. This will be followed by a seminar on how to harness the power of social media, get your photos noticed and published in magazines.
