Sports photographer Thomas F?hnrich shows you what's possible with the A9 III and how to take action-packed photos of athletes.

For all those who are unable to be there in D?sseldorf, all of the workshop's presentations will also be streamed live on YouTube and can be viewed there afterwards.

However, the focus will also be on giving all participants the opportunity to implement what they have learned directly on site and work with the Alpha 9 Mark III. The necessary equipment will also be provided and a Sony expert will help participants on site with technical questions.

Definitely! Not only will you have the opportunity to ask your questions directly on site, but you will also be given time & equipment, to use the Alpha 9 III in the set up to put what you have learned directly into practice.
Thereby Thomas helps you with questions and gives further tips & tricks to make the pictures even better!

In addition, a Sony expert will be on site to advise and support all participants with technical questions about the Sony equipment.

All participants will receive a personal memory card on site so that they can take the pictures home with them.

Of course, the most important aspect should not be forgotten: Only on location is there the opportunity to network with other photographers and learn from each other.

You do not need your own Sony camera to participate on site. One of the purposes of the workshop is to get to know and try out the various cameras & lenses from Sony.

So if you're thinking about getting into the Sony system or upgrading your existing Sony equipment, this workshop is the perfect opportunity to test the various models. But the main focus is on the new Alpha 9 III.

The fee for participation on site is 79?.
