Whistler Outdoor Photography Workshop


This last weekend, I was invited by Blake Jorgenson to tag along with the WOPW. A small group of enthusiast photographers were teamed up with some of the industries finest to shed light on photography and it’s multitude of techniques and skill sets. Blake organized some heaving hitting photographers including the likes of Eric Berger, Paul Morrison, and Jordan Manley.

The course consisted of three days of shooting, which included two days on the ski hill shooting with pro athletes James Heim, Rory Bushfield and Logan Pehota, and one day shooting mountain biking with Stephen Matthews, Rory, and myself. It was very cool to follow the group around and gain insight into the creative processes behind producing amazing photos.

Another day was spent in the Westin, where the students learned the ins and outs of editing in Adobe’s Lightroom, and the instructors used examples of their best work to explain how they edit their own images. The instructors provided intelligent and constructive critiques, and helped each of the students compile their best work from the session and package it into a slideshow presentation.

The plan is to continue offering these courses in the fall time and in the winter, and considering the depth of the talent the instructors are drawing from, it is an invaluable experience, and easily well worth the money.

Here are some of the solid images that the class produced of me on my bike.
