Sports photography Workshop: IRONMAN COZUMEL

Sport photo graphy workshop

This yearly sport event is one of the mayor events of the island Cozumel. It attracts athletes and visitors alike.
The Ironman triathlon athletes have to swim, bike and run. The race day starts early at 6:00am and ends at midnight the same day.

As a matter of course if you like to learn about sport photography you do not have to be at the race the entire day.
These hours just give you enough time to work as much as you like.


This 3 day workshop lets you dive in this amazing atmosphere of action, cheering and emotions. Under previous instructions of Tatjana Biermas
- experienced action & sport photographer that has covered successfully the Ironman events in Cozumel in the past years - you will be able to capture the different disciplines (swimming, biking and running) and have a day full of fun.

For beginners and advanced photographers with Digital SLR (DSLR). You should have basic knowledge of your camera and lens(es) - such as using the semi automatic settings (A, S, T). It is not suitable for the digital 'point & shoot' cameras...
