They can sign up for the YOG’s photography workshop, where experienced photographers and trainers will provide hands-on training at sports events such as the weightlifting, volleyball, athletic and rowing competitions at the upcoming Friendship Games.
Participants will be provided with equipment and given tips to improve their sports-photography skills. After the workshop, SYOGOC will assign selected participants for specific photography roles during the YOG.
