 FRESH DIRT

The Sweetest Gig on the Trails
Q&A with adventure and mountain sports photographer Dan Holz

Dan Holz, 37, of Seattle, Washington, has a day job most of us would regard as a dream job—traveling to beautiful parts of the world as a full-time active lifestyle and mountain sport photographer. He’s worked with clients like Patagonia, REI, Sierra Designs, 5:10, Feathered Friends and several international nonprofits.

Below, we chat with him about his job, his participation in our 2011 photo camp and his transition to full-time photography.

For seven years, Big Stone Publishing (which publishes both Trail Runner and Rock and Ice magazines) has hosted a photo camp for outdoor photographers—pro, amateur and aspiring all welcome!—to gain experience in the field, hone skills, develop a portfolio and network with industry pros.

Learn more about this year’s trail-running photography camp here—and if it piques your interest, just ask for the “Dan Holz Discount” by Sunday, August 4 to receive 20% off your camp entry fee.
