The Master Will See You Now

Published: January 21, 2011

Scott Markewitz, the legendary ski photographer and longtime Powder Magazine Senior Photographer, is hosting a photography workshop at Snowbird, Utah, on Feb. 3-6.

The details: The intensive three-day workshop is geared for photographers of all levels who are passionate about skiing and the outdoors and want to expand their photographic knowledge and skills. Participants 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 a fun and exciting experience for everyone that will challenge students creatively, technically and physically.

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.

The workshop includes three days of uninterrupted 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 (TBD), and interested parties can register by calling Snowbird Central Reservations at (800) 453-3000.
