Man, the High Cascade Photo Workshop is something else. Where else can you go and get some of the best instruction in how to shoot action photos by some of the leaders in the field? The photo workshop has churned out many professional photographers including  TransWorld SKATEboarding senior photographer Sam Muller, Robbie Sell, Mark Kohlman, and Ben Birk. Andy Wright is becoming the new director of the workshop, so we figured it would be best to let him explain what went down this year, and what to expect as a member of the High Cascade Photo Workshop.

“This was 10th year of the High Cascade Photo Workshop. The workshop takes place at Mt. Hood, Oregon for one week every summer.  I’ve been a part of 6 of these seminars now, and this summer was the first time we held class in June. The snow is definitely a lot more plentiful this time of year. We even had a day of shooting with new snow falling and some of the photos the students captured looked like they could have been shot in January. This year saw the return of my fellow instructors of years past: Tim Zimmerman, Christy Chaloux and Kari Rowe. In addition, newly anointed TransWorld SNOWboarding Photo Editor, Chris Wellhausen spent extensive time at camp going over photo submission practices as well as a lot of individual teaching on the hill. TransWorld SNOWboarding Senior photographer Scott Serfas also made his first appearance at the workshop where he presented his recent slideshow entry that was in the Telus Pro Photographer Showdown. And finally, High Cascade staff photographer Aaron Blatt broke away from his photo duties with High Cascade regular camp to spend extensive time in the classroom and on hill with kids this year. With a few special appearances from workshop founder Trevor Graves, this might have been the most talented group of instructors assembled yet. Judging from the quality work the students produced during their time shooting both on and off  the hill, a strong argument could be made for this claim. If you are interested in learning how to create images you see in the issues of TransWorld and on it’s website, this is definitely the place for you.”
