Exposure – Film + Photo Camp 2024

Exposure Camp

What better location to hone your shooting, filming and editing skills than in beautiful Whistler, BC using some of the world’s best skiers + riders as your subject matter, along with action models from the world of skating and biking. We bring together some of the top filmmakers and photographers in the action sports industry to act as your mentors and instructors. With a combined Film + Photo Camp you can specialize in either or practice a mix of both –  the choice is yours!

Program Details

  • Exposure offers training and workshops in both technical and creative aspects of action sports film and photography.
  • The program consists of practical shooting sessions on the glacier and at other select locations around Whistler. There is usually also a dedicated sunset/night shoot up on the glacier (weather permitting). Your subjects will include the World’s top skiers and riders along with talented athletes in the other Whistler action sports.
  • Editing sessions and workshops in our private edit suite with one-on-one guidance in creative and professional editing techniques from your coaches.
  • You will learn about the latest digital equipment, editing and postproduction software, uploading to web platforms, etc.
  • The goal is to create a finished edit/slideshow by the end of the session, which will be showcased to an audience of Momentum Campers, coaches and staff on the final night. Your shows will be profiled, if you choose, through Momentum channels, to our wider online audience and to camp sponsors.
