Skiing Magazine contributors and professional photographers Grant Gunderson and Tom Winter are expanding their Image Quest Photo camps into Europe, with the announcement of Image Quest Italy, a new multi-disciplinary camp that adds an athlete component for skiers in addition to the camp’s courses for photographers looking to break into ski photography.

“This year we’re really expanding the opportunities for clients,” Winter says. “In the past the camp has been very photo driven. The photo element is not going to go away, and it is still a key component of what we do, but now we’re including an athlete experience designed specifically for skiers who are looking to break into the sport and get sponsored. They’ll build an image portfolio, learn the secrets of working with action sports companies and team managers and get expert advice on how to develop their own brand.”

According to Winter and Gunderson, this addition to the camp gives up and coming athletes the opportunity to work with established lensmen such as Gunderson, who has scored numerous magazine covers including the cover of Skiing Magazine’s September Photo Annual issue.

“This is a great chance to work with a variety of different photographers, all of whom will have different styles and approaches,” Winter says.

But it’s not only about the photos.

“The athlete component of the camp will delve into marketing, brand management as well as how to look good when in front of the lens,” Gunderson says. “It’s a huge opportunity for athletes who are looking to break into the ski business.”

This winter’s camp is scheduled to take place in Monterosa-Ski from March 23 through March 29. A massive complex of multiple lifts, valleys and villages, the area offers unparalleled opportunities for both skiers and photographers and is served by Milan’s Malpensa International airport, offering easy access for travelers.
