It’s Friday which means Video Post Friday!! Scott Markewitz is universally recognized in the world of ski and bike photography. As a former pro skier action sport photography was the obvious choice.
He’s had over 400 covers from Men’s Journal to Powder Magazine, and in this short documentary he explains the importance of knowing the subject you want to shoot.
There are few names in the world of skiing and bike photography that are universally recognized. Scott Markewitz fits this category. As a former pro skier, it’s no surprise that since diving into action sports photography, he’s been killing it – having been published on over 400 covers from Men’s Journal to Powder Magazine. His relentless work ethic and drive to ‘get the shot’ has produced countless iconic images and one of the most diverse portfolios in action/sports photography.
We had the opportunity to follow Scott for a few days at his home base in Salt Lake City, Utah. It quickly became apparent why he’s so successful at his craft. He is very engaged with not only the sports he is shooting, but the athletes as well. There’s a certain dynamic between Scott and the athletes he works with, which is well reflected in his photos. Within a 36 hour timespan, he captured three different sports with a half dozen athletes, including Carston Oliver, KC Deane and Julian Carr.
When he doesn’t have a camera in his hand, Scott spends his time with his son Julian and wife Veronique. They were kind enough to let us in for pancakes.
