After an incredible trip to Alaska, I came home and a few days later was on the move again. Friday I was shooting for Salomon at Snowbird, Saturday and Sunday shooting at Breckenridge, for Vail Resorts, on Monday shooting for Mountain Hardwear in Marin County, and on Tuesday and Wednesday back in Colorado shooting for Powder Magazine in Boulder and Aspen. It was a whirlwind trip with late night flights and a lot of driving, but really productive and a lot of fun.

I’m excited to announce my Third Annual Scott Markewitz Photo Workshop that’s taking place this coming February 9 – 12 at Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort.
Attendees of my 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.”
I’m really stoked to get at this again, it gets better and better every year. And with all the recent snowfall we’ve been having, this should make for some amazing turns and great accessibility of the mountain. This will be an exciting and rewarding experience for everyone, and will challenge students creatively, technically and physically. 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.
Spec’s on the Scott Markewitz Photography Workshop:
– 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.
– 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, please feel free to contact me 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.”
Can’t wait to see you all up there!
