Long Lens Ski Photography Tech Tip

Join Corey Rich on the ski slopes and learn how to take action shots.


AdoramaTV presents Getting the Shot with Corey Rich

For any skier worth his salt, when it dumps 3 feet of snow, that usually means it's a "powder day"—time to ditch work and hit the slopes. But for photographer and director Corey Rich, a powder day means it's actually time to go to work.

Fortunately, that work means going up on a mountain, skiing and using those rare, blissful conditions of fresh-fallen snow to make epic ski pictures. Having spent a number of years shooting the still assets for one of this country's premier ski resorts—Kirkwood Mountain outside of Lake Tahoe—Corey knows a few things about what makes a great ski picture.

In this Tech Tip, he brings you close to the action with several choices for long lenses, and provides tips for navigating all the variables from finding good snow conditions and locations, to working with models, to the "rat race" of out-skiing the general public. Learn to work with mountain light, build a composition, keep shooting no matter what, and capture that decisive moment that tells a great visual story about your most epic powder day.
