Come join us in the high country of Revelstoke, British Columbia.
This three-day course puts you in the field under the watchful eye of trail running’s top pro shooters. Learn the tricks of lighting, composition, getting in position, anticipating movement and more, from the photographers who have succeeded in the field.
You will also learn how to efficiently edit your images, and how to improve them in Photoshop. The camp also covers what magazine editors look for in submissions, and how to improve your chances of getting published.
The 2017 Trail Runner Photo Camp will take place August 8-11 in stunning Revelstoke, British Columbia.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Days are spent in the field shooting some of the sport’s top trail runners. On the fantastic trails of the Mount Revelstoke and Glacier national parks, our crew of athletes will run while you shoot and receive instruction. In the evenings you’ll return to the hotel for dinner, photo processing and a critique of your day’s work by the instructors. The goal is to improve your photography each day and have you go home with professional-level photos.

This year’s lead instructor is Fredrik Marmsater (below) one of the most active and respected mountain-sports photographers in the business.
Our assistant instructor will be Bruno Long. Bruno is a professional adventure photographer based in Revelstoke, BC, Canada. After growing up on the East Coast of Canada, he moved out West at the age of 19 and hasn’t looked back since, trying to make up for lost time by living first in the Jasper National Park and then moving to Revelstoke over a decade ago. With a focus primarily on self-powered adventures, he has spent the past 10 years honing his mountain skills while ski touring, mountain biking and trail running all over British Columbia.
With a fast-and-light approach to shooting, he has developed a keen eye for the beauty that surrounds him while at the same time trying to keep up with his long list of amazing partners in the mountains. Never one to shy away from a long, arduous adventure, he takes a unique landscape-based, action-second approach. Thankfully for him, the area surrounding his home is one of the more beautiful places on earth, with no lack of stunning vistas.
Also instructing will be accomplished sports photographer Randy Levensaler (also Trail Runner’s Art Director).
Each student will receive a photo-assignment agreement—you’ll be shooting as a professional, gaining invaluable insight into the field, and getting the opportunity to have your photos published in Trail Runner. Every student will get the opportunity to have photos published in a gallery on trailrunnermag.com. Break through to the next level with the Trail Runner Photo Camp!
