Sport photography and sports journalism insights for students

Student photography enthusiasts recently got a glimpse into the world of sports photography and sports journalism at a workshop organized by Royal College '73 Group at its premises in association with the Royal College Photographic Society.

The workshop was attended by a large gathering of students from schools in Colombo including Royal College, Ananda College, Thurstan College, Bishops College, Devi Balika College, Dharmapala College, Isipatana College and St.Thomas College.

Participating students said that this workshop gave them some additional skills and tips on taking sports photography and also that the workshop made them keen on pursuing a career in sports journalism.

"We wanted to open up young minds to new avenues of careers and professions such as sports journalism and sports photography, and with the help of Canon and Metropolitan we were able to source exceptional speakers and trainers for the workshop for the students to benefit," said Mr. Jehaan Ismail, President of Royal College '73 Group.

The workshop was conducted by experienced photo journalist Eranga Jayawardena of South Asia Associated Press and ANCL journalist Sulochane Perera.
