Chris Burkard is excited to be leading a 5-day adventure photography workshop this November (2016) at Sundance Resort, UT. This Adventure photo workshop will have a large emphasis on action sports and will include working alongside professional athletes. Activities such as mountain biking, climbing, fly fishing, high lining and more will be shot throughout the week. Each participant will get an in depth look at the techniques used to capture these and other action/outdoor sports. We will also have the opportunity to shoot landscapes and night photography with an overnight camping trip for one day of the trip. This workshop also includes extensive classroom time with multiple edit / critique sessions.
