Keynote speaker for the 2014 Black Hills Photo Shootout will be Sports Illustrated shooter/Nikon Ambassador/SanDisk Extreme Team member Dave Black. Dave's presentation on Friday, September 26 will kickoff the weekend of great photo shoots and instruction.
A veteran of 12 Olympic games, Dave has also covered many other major sporting events and is almost a full time instructor at workshops across the country and through his own "Workshop at the Ranch" instructional photo blog. I saw Dave present at a workshop several years ago and I can say you won't be disappointed.
Check out more info at the Black Hills Photo Shootout website and Dave Black's website.
As for the Shootout itself, I don't think you will find more bang for your buck in the world of photography workshops. With a great keynote speaker like Dave Black, plus two full days of workshops and photo tours from instructors who know the Black Hills and Badlands best, and some social events thrown in, this is a terrific value. Details on the workshop sessions and registration will be coming soon at the Black Hills Photo Shootout website and the corresponding Facebook page.
