6-DAY ADVENTURE SPORT PHOTO WORKSHOP

 

ITALIAN DOLOMITES
FEBRUARY 26 - March 3, 2017

 

*4 SPOTS AVAILABLE*
 

OVERVIEW

In February, 2017, I will be leading a course in the Italian Dolomites, detailing all the ins and outs of being an adventure sport photographer. We'll spend some 'classroom' time at the hotel, but a good portion of our days will be spent outside, discussing techniques and shooting together. I'll be giving both commercial and editorial mock assignments, followed up by collaborative critiques. This will be a bit like trying to cram all of my photography degree into one week, in an incredible setting, while having a ton of fun!

Although many of the techniques we'll discus pertain to most aspects of adventure sport photography, given the season, this workshop will be skiing-focused. Participants need to be strong skiers, in good physical condition and have a good understanding of backcountry skiing. We'll have a pro skier to work with for the duration of the workshop. 

This workshop is being held in the Italian Dolomites due to their sheer beauty, incredible accessibility and warm, Italian hospitality. We might be ski bums at heart, but we won't be sleeping in our vans or in a hostel in Italy. This workshop will be held at the 4-star Hotel Monzoni, which has incredible food and a spa. George Clooney even stayed there once (wow)!

ADVENTURE ITINERARY

Seeing as we'll be in the mountains, the weather will dictate much of our schedule. We'll try to ski and shoot in the morning, then follow up with round-table style discussions in the late afternoon. The Dolomiti Superski terrain we'll have access to, is completely mind-boggling in terms of backgrounds and sheer size. Within our 6 days of skiing and shooting, we'll find the group's balance between exploring new areas and coming back to terrain we want to shoot in optimized conditions. Over the course of our 6 days together, we will: 

• explore the incredible lift-accessed backcountry at the Passo San Pellegrino

• ski to and spend 1 night at one of Italy's best mountain rifugios

• shoot the incredible winter night sky

• ski and shoot at neighboring Marmolada ski areas

• explore a few of the area's quaint villages
