Building on the popularity and feedback from the last three years, Whistler Outdoor Photography Workshops is pleased to announce the dates for a Fall Whistler Outdoor Photography Summit, September 26-29, 2013. This year’s summit is in conjunction with the Whistler Arts Council and Out of Bounds Backcountry Photo Contest, a premier photo exhibition with a $1,000 cash prize.
“Photography in Whistler and the outdoor activities that we love go hand and hand just like the athletes and the equipment they use on the mountain. Documenting and sharing our adventures with others inspires us to be out in the mountains even more.” – Director Blake Jorgenson
Now in its fourth year the Whistler Outdoor Photography Workshops is back with a new four day long summit. This year there will be two separate workshops for intermediate and advanced photographers. There will also be an evening lecture series open to the public to learn and be inspired by world class photographers and industry leaders. They will be sharing their best images and the stories of how they were created.
