Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort is proud to host the second annual Scott Markewitz Photography Workshop, Feb. 3-6, 2011. This intensive 3-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 with one of the most celebrated snowsports photographers working today. 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.
“We’re excited to build on the success of last year and teach photographers of all skill levels how to capture world-class ski and snowboard images,” said Markewitz. “Snowbird’s combination of unmatched scenery, snow, accessibility and access to professional athletes makes this the perfect venue to stage a photography workshop.”
“Scott has been capturing timeless images in Little Cottonwood Canyon for more than two decades,” said Snowbird Vice President of Resort Operations Dave Fields. “We’re honored that he’s chosen Snowbird to stage what is surely one of the most unique and elite photo workshops in the action sports world.”
The Scott Markewitz Photography 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 $1,690 per person for a single occupancy room or $1,250 per person for a double occupancy room.
With more than 25 years of experience, Markewitz has garnered over 400 covers on publications such as Outside, Men’s Journal, Ski, Skiing, Powder, Mountain Bike and Runner’s World.
