One of the ski industry’s most prestigious photographers, Scott Markewitz, will hold his third annual photography workshop at Utah’s Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort Feb. 9-12. Participants of the Scott Markewitz Photography Workshop will learn about all aspects of ski and winter outdoor photography with morning and evening classroom sessions and on-hill practice photographing professional skiers and snowboarders in action.
“This will be an exciting and rewarding experience for everyone, and will challenge students creatively, technically and physically,” said Markewitz. “Snowbird is the perfect venue for this workshop. I’m really looking forward to showing participants the incredible snow, terrain, scenery and photographic opportunities that the resort has to offer.”
This intensive four-day workshop 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. On-mountain sessions will give photographers a chance to practice their skills with Snowbird’s athlete team as models. Participants will also have the opportunity to take pre-public Trams and work with Snowbird Ski Patrol.
The Scott Markewitz Photography Workshop includes four days of instruction both on the mountain and in the classroom as well as three nights at the Cliff Lodge, lift tickets, early Trams and breakfast. The workshop costs $1,250 (double occupancy, plus taxes and fees), and interested parties can register by calling Snowbird Central Reservations at (800) 453-3000. For locals who don’t require lodging and/or lift tickets, contact Scott Markewitz directly at email@example.com.
All participants should have a basic understanding of digital photography and be able to ski or snowboard most areas on the mountain comfortably while carrying their own camera gear. Students are required to bring their own DSLR camera with assorted lenses, a backpack to carry their equipment while riding, a laptop with Photoshop installed (CS2 or higher – also recommended to have other image processing software such as Lightroom, Aperture and/or Photo Mechanic), a memory card reader, at least one external hard drive for storage, and must be ready with the proper ski/snowboard equipment for any conditions.
