SCHEDULE OF WORKSHOPS
Shooting Action with Sony
10:30am to Noon
with Patrick Murphy-Racey
Former Sports Illustrated Photographer and Sony Artisan Patrick Murphy-Racey has been shooting the Sony a9 camera body since before it was released in March of 2017. He has covered football, soccer, tennis, baseball, NASCAR, PGA, and all manner of assignments shooting people moving, dancing, and jumping. PM-R has shot over 700 assignments for Sports Illustrated and will offer his experience, advice, and show images of what is now possible with the a9’s new “Real Time Tracking” AF system which employs a high level of artificial intelligence that can recognize human faces, eyes, and even color and pattern. Patrick will show a wide array of images and explain how they were captured using Sony cameras and lenses. Life at 20 frames per second is FAST and so is the new AF motor technology that is being used in Sony’s G-Master lineup of lenses from 24-600mm. At the heart of the a9 is the sensor and Patrick will describe in detail why this camera has no equal.
The Art of Storytelling
1 to 2:30pm
with Taylor Rees
Sony Artisan, Filmmaker and photographer, Taylor Rees, will share her most recent expeditions and projects while in Chile, Argentina, far eastern Russian Seas, Iceland, Congo and Nepal. Taylor will break down her tactics in run-n-gun interviewing, how to capture a story with small crews and share some never-before-seen footage from upcoming projects. She will also walk the group through the types of equipment she uses on these types of shoots, as well as the equipment she uses on shoots closer to home.
Going Prime Time

MEET OUR SPEAKERS
While Sony Artisan Patrick Murphy-Racey is best known for his 30-year career shooting sports action and athlete portrait work, he loves to teach and share what he knows with upcoming photographers. While action photography and high end lighting has always been a key feature of his work, at heart, he considers himself a “recovering newspaper photographer.” Murphy-Racey’s photography has graced the pages of Sports Illustrated more than 500 times with four covers. He has two books to his credit, “Run Through the T” on Tennessee football, and “Unscripted,” on the WWE. Patrick is the winner of the Humanitarian Award from the National Press Photographer’s Association and is a member of the ASMP. Murphy-Racey has always been a "gear guy,” and a well known vlogger in the photo industry. He tries always to stay on the edge of technology which led him to Sony’s mirrorless cameras in 2013.
Taylor Rees is a documentary filmmaker, photojournalist, and avid adventurer. She is driven by an insatiable curiosity to explore and share stories beneath the surface to bring about greater understanding around natural resource conflicts, climate change, conservation, and human rights.
