Steve McLeod Photography in association with APSC - Australian Photo Shoot Collective are proud to bring you our first edition of Sport Snappers, "Editorial, Agency and Client" Photography Info Day.
This is a rare opportunity to get an insight into the three disciplines of professional Sports Photography along with the backstory of how three different Photographers came to be at the top of their game. Daniel Wilkins covering the ins and outs of all things editorial, Paul Kane from Getty Images discussing his role shooting for a large image agency and Daniel Carson who will give us a run down on his experiences being contracted by a client.
All three have been kind enough to make themselves available for questions between speakers.
This is a one-off event with limited tickets likely to sell fast.
Early Bird tickets go on sale on the 29th of September.
Our three key speakers;
5.30pm - 6.30pm Daniel Wilkins from Daniel Wilkins - Photographer, Professional Press Photographer.

8.30pm - 9.30pm Daniel Carson - DCimages Photography
Daniel’s photography career started in sport and when he grows up wants to be a real photographer one day.
In 2008 he did his first tour with the Kookaburras (men’s Australian Hockey Team) to Holland for the Champion’s Trophy. From that moment on he followed the path that rapidly opened in front of him paved by shooting international hockey. This took him around the world multiple times from Beijing in 2008, and losing count of the amount of Champion’s Trophies for both the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos internationally as well as two World Cups in 2010.
Early 2012 saw a new AFL Media take shape and Daniel was brought on board covering AFL in Western Australia including shooting the 2015 AFL Grand Final in Melbourne. Along as being a casual Stringer for Getty Images, he currently is the official photographer for the AFL, Hockey Australia and Hockey WA, The West Coast Fever (Netball WA), Swimming WA and Photosport NZ where he covers Rugby, Boxing, Hockey, Cricket and Motorsport.
