I'm excited to announce my seventh annual workshop at Snowbird, UT, Jan 22-24, 2016. This intensive 3-day program is geared for photographers of all levels who are passionate about skiing, snowboarding and the outdoors and want to expand their photographic knowledge and skills. Participants will learn about all aspects of winter outdoor photography with morning and evening classroom sessions and daily on-mountain sessions that give participants a chance to practice their skills photographing professional skiers and snowboarders in action.
Again this year, I will include instruction on the use of strobes in action sports, including classroom discussions and demos, as well as on mountain practice with professional lighting equipment.
All participants should have a basic understanding of digital photography and be able to ski or snowboard advanced areas on the mountain comfortably while carrying their camera gear. Students are required to bring proper ski/snowboard equipment for any conditions, a DSLR camera with assorted lenses, a backpack to carry equipment while riding, a laptop with image processing software installed (Photoshop, Lightroom, Aperture, or other similar programs), a memory card reader, thumb drive, and at least one external hard drive for storage.
The Scott Markewitz Photography Workshop includes three days of instruction, both on the mountain and in the classroom as well as three nights at the Cliff Lodge, lift tickets, early tram (conditions permitting) and breakfast. The cost for the workshop is $1630 (per person, double occupancy, including taxes & fees) and interested parties can register by calling Snowbird Central Reservations at 1-800-453-3000. For locals who don't require lodging and/or lift tickets, please contact Scott Markewitz directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for workshop only pricing.
Whether this is your first workshop or you've attended a past session, this is a fun and informative program that will improve your skills and expand your vision as a photographer.
Hope to see you there!
