Your Instructor: Chris van Riel

Hey! I’m Chris van Riel, I’m an action photographer from The Netherlands who focuses on dogs.
When I started photography I began with portraits, but it didn’t take long until I discovered how much animals come alive when playing and moving. 

Ever since I specialized myself into photographing the art of motion. With joy, focus, power, and action, there’s so much potential for great images. 

It’s a great challenge to capture it at the right time but I just love every bit of it!

During this course I’m going to go back in time, to when I first started, and take you with me on this journey to become a better action photographer. There’s so much that I wish I knew when I started – so I’m going to make sure you don’t make the mistakes that I did!

During these webinars, there will be several episodes where I will take you behind the scenes. To show you from my own perspective how set up for my shots and how easy action photography can be if you’re willing to fully specialize yourself in this.

What's Included?

LIVE Sessions begin February 2024, and will take place every 2 months, giving you a full year of action-packed learning. That means there’ll be a live webinar in February, April, June, August, October and December! 

Even if you join throughout the year, you will have immediate access to the past recordings, as well as being able to access the future sessions live.  

You can also choose to sign up for just a single webinar, or to add on a feedback option to get access to a private group in my Community, to ask Chris questions, troubleshoot, and get help and feedback between the webinars!
