So one of my past photography teachers emails me from time to time about new photo opportunities in the area. I'd like to share with all of you the email she sent to me last night...
Earlier this summer a woman who works with the AZ Diamondbacks contacted me about an event they were organizing that would bring in local photo students to learn more about sports photography and have a cool behind the scenes experience. I didn't hear anything for months...until yesterday. I apologize for the short notice, but the event is scheduled for this weekend on Sunday. I am out of town this weekend, but if you are interested in going contact Elizabeth directly, her information is at the bottom of this email. You have to purchase a ticket, but prior to the game you get to meet the team photographer, go behind the scenes, etc. It could be a fun day for sure--especially if you like baseball!
hope you are all well
Diamondbacks Photography Outing
When: Sunday, August 16th. Meeting time at 10:30
What: Pregame meeting with team photographer, access to behind the scene areas.
Price: Discounted tickets ranging between $17-$37. Depending on desired area.
Who: Anyone is welcome to join the event.
Please contact me directly with any questions.
Not sure if I'll be able to get work off on such short notice but this definitely sounds really cool. You get to see the game, learn about the biz, and check out a bunch of stuff most people don't get to see. I called Elizabeth and she said there's a great chance you'll get to see the players up close as well.
