Event Details

Samy’s Photo School is pleased to invite Porsche Club of America, Los Angeles Region members to an exclusive photography workshop at the Petersen Automotive Museum with Automobile, Car & Driver, Life, Road & Track, Sports Illustrated and Time Magazine photographer Al Satterwhite.

 

*Please note, in order to attend this workshop, you must be a Porsche Club member.  Due to class size limitations, this workshop is not open to guests of Porsche Club Members.

During this half-day workshop, Al will teach you how to bring out a car’s personality, and your own, beyond a simple snapshot. Learn how to capture a sophisticated image that is more artistic, inspiring and engaging.

Al will show you the techniques he used to shoot stunning ads for Ferrari, Ford, Honda Motorcycles, Jeep, Mazda, Oldsmobile, Peugeot, Puch Bicycles, Saab, Specialized Bicycles, and Volvo.
In this workshop, Al will discuss capturing images of racing over the past 40+ years of shooting auto racing for numerous publications. He will show what he has photographed and how he goes about doing this. Al will also discuss his two recent books on racing, the Racers and Carroll Shelby, which were highlighted on CNN.  He will also talk about composition, locations, camera angles, techniques, equipment selection, and understanding light.

After time in the classroom, you will have the rare opportunity to photograph two Porsches from a roof top studio using various angles and available lighting. We will get close to the cars, experiment with different viewpoints and focus on compelling details to heighten your ability to shoot cars like pro.  Attendees  will receive a $25 Samy’s Gift Card.

 

 

 

Instructor Bio:
   Al Satterwhite spent many years covering auto racing and other sporting events for Automobile, Car & Driver, Life, Newsweek, Road & Track, Sports Illustrated and Time magazines. He has photographed auto racing extensively over the years, most recently publishing the Racers, featured on CNN, and Carroll Shelby. He has covered the Daytona 500, 24-Hours of Daytona, Sebring 12-Hour races, Indy 500 and other motorsports venues around the US too many times to count.
   Shooting race cars is a challenge to capture the grace of cars in motion. Covering auto racing is more than photographing speeding cars. The human element is a big part of the excitement. The drivers and crew in action add to the drama.
