Behind the Red Bull Academy


Over September 2016, was held the Red Bull Photography Academy in Salzburg.

Throughout the course of 12 days, 6 Red Bull photographers attended workshops and lectures held by 8 other photographers, who acted as trainers, empowering them to think outside the box, be experimental and go beyond limits.

Sports, Culture, Business & Technique

The Academy was based on 4 modules: Core sports, culture, business and technique.

With over 10 athletes present, photographers were able to interact with their subjects, gain “hands-on experience” of sports photography and improve their technique.

“We learned from the best in the industry; that made me become a better photographer”
