Like Cambell’s is to soup, and Kleenex is to tissue, if someone asked you to name a top snowboard photographer, the name Mark Gallup would be uttered.
With about 24 years under his belt, he has seen it all! From winning the Colorado Mountain Media awards, besting 25 global photographers, in a 3 day grudge match, to dozens of magazine portfolios, about 100 covers, and countless images published worldwide, covering snowy stories where ever snow falls on the planet, Mark has earned what some editors call “legend” status.
“There is no other photography environment like shooting action on snow” says Mark. “The light changes every second, your dealing with a vertical world full of hazards, and a anything-can-happen action sport that demands ninja reflexes or you’ll come up empty handed! Then you start factoring in lighting gear and you open up a whole new world of challenges.”
The end results of flash filled action shots can be some of the most rewarding shots you’ll ever take.
Over the years Mark has learned a few tricks of the trade and is now offering an on slope, get your fingers frosty, lighting workshop that is sure to open your eyes and take your mad skillz to the next level at the speed of light!
