Red Bull Photography Academy 2019 - Cape Town
Opening your inbox and seeing an email from RedBull Media House definitely elicits a double take. Queue the crazy excitement… I was invited to take part in the RedBull Photography Academy with a group of other crazy talented photographers. Being one of only two woman (fist pump to Nina - my fellow lady photog in the group) ever invited to take part was pretty cool.
To say this was an amazing experience feels like an understatement. It was one of the most intense weeks of my life and definitely one of the best. Not only did we have an amazing crew of academy participants that made the whole experience a blast. We also had lectures from some of the top RedBull photographers. These guys are at the top of their field and were so knowledgeable and I feel like I learnt more in 8 days than the last few years combined. After the lectures we had access to some amazing photography equipment and superhero RedBull athletes. We were given briefs that had to be executed in a certain time limit. We each acted as assistants for each other during the shoots and were given guidance from the instructors. The support from the RedBull photography crew from Austria was amazing.
This experience taught me so much and allowed me to experience so many new creative ideas and test them out. Being in the company of some other really talented photographers who have become great friends was such a great learning experience.
Thank you to RedBull photography for such an amazing experience and to all the participants for making this amazing opportunity an unforgettable experience. Here are some of my shots and some behind-the-scenes shenanigans.
