“The High Cascade Photo Workshop is set up to teach any interested person the way to capture snowboarding photos like the ones seen in the magazines. While our focus is on capturing the action, we also cover all aspects of what it takes to be a professional in this field, including digital workflow, preparing photo submissions and communicating with clients as well as riders. There’s also plenty of advanced shoot techniques and secrets revealed, including a flash photography seminar during the evening sunset shoot on Mt. Hood. There’s a lot of ground covered in the workshop and most of it can be applied to other types of shooting, not just snowboarding.” – Andy Wright
