Tim Morley has given the sports photography class the opportunity to not only learn about photographing sports action shots, but has also allowed them to travel to sports’ practices on Michigan State University’s campus.
On Monday, July 27, Morley took his students to photograph the swimmers at the IM West building and later walked them to a Michigan State weight room to get action shots of the athletes that were training. Morley and his class took a bus to a skate park in East Lansing and plan to bus to a basketball and a hockey practice later in the week.
“I like to put the students in situations that they would be in when they are working with their own publications,” Morley said. When they are not traveling around campus, Morley hopes to teach the students how to edit the sports shots they have taken.
