Join Sports Illustrated Photographer Peter Read Miller and friends on September 14-18, 2016 for 5 days of shooting action at a variety of games and learning in Knoxville TN.

On Saturday, the class will shoot from the sidelines at the UT vs. Ohio University football game. The energy you will feel of a major college football game inside the historic 102,455 seat Nyland Stadium is beyond words.
