Title: Ski Patrol

Location: Deer Lagoon, Whidbey Island, Washington, USA, North America

Description: For a story I shot and wrote about the Mission Ridge Ski Patrol, but never got published as the magazine went under. It was a challenge as I’m not the best skier, but these guys were great at volunteering to stage a litter run.

Lens: Canon 28-300mm L
ISO: 100
Focal Length: 200mm
Aperture: f/8
Shutter Speed: 1/500
Altitude: High, but not too high as it is just Eastern Washington.

I’m excited to be heading to Central America to teach photography in November and December of 2017 in Costa Rica and Panama. One trip is from Costa Rica to Panama, including a transit of the Panama Canal and a number of National Parks and islands, while the other is the same itinerary in reverse.

I’d love to see you on either trip and you can save $200/cabin by using code CH2U117 when booking either of those Costa Rica/Panama itineraries. Click here or email me for more details.
