2018 Coaches 

Jeff Schmuck – Former Editor of SBC Skier Magazine and now Forecast Magazine, Jeff has been part of every Exposure camp and brings a wealth of industry knowledge to the table, to help give you a step up into a career as a pro.

Photography Coaches

Mason Mashon is one of the most prolific Whistler based ski, snowboard and mountain bike photographers, in an area saturated with camera talent. He has honed his craft in a location known worldwide as the holy grail of action sports. Mason’s photography draws from a deep well of influence and he is an accomplished athlete himself, excelling at mountain biking, skiing and surfing, so intrinsically understands the environment and culture of these sports. He is also used to being in front of the camera, as a presenter of the action sports TV show UnderExposed, which follows his life as a freelance action sports photographer.

Chad Chomlack is an award-winning photographer, with 25+ years of experience. The images Chad likes to shoot are often stark and emotional –  simple elements held in perfect balance. He loves to document other cultures and excels at capturing honest moments, knowing that sometimes the best view of the action is from the edge. Never posed, always poised, Chad Chomlack quietly captures the images that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Film Coaches

Jeff Thomas is an award winning, visual storyteller, filmer, and Director of Video Production with Origin Design. A jack of all video trades, his previous roles at Switchback Entertainment and Poor Boyz Productions have taken him across the world, filming in all manner of locations and conditions. Jeff was the mastermind behind this year’s acclaimed movie ‘Magnetic‘.

Dave Mossop from Sherpas Cinema is a highly talented, experienced and creative director, and one of the most acclaimed Aerial Directors in the business. He has directed films of all genres from Nature and adventure documentaries, to music videos, commercials and feature length films.

Past Exposure Coaches have included:
Blake Jorgenson, Reuben Krabbe, Johnny Decesare, Josh Berman, Nick Martini, Tyler Hamlett, Darren Rayner, Mike Douglas, Zach Moxley.

What you will Learn and Create:

Exposure offers training and workshops in both technical and creative aspects of action sports film and photography, plus creative and professional editing techniques. You will learn about the latest digital equipment, editing and postproduction software, uploading to web platforms, etc.

The aim 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 through Momentum channels, to our wide online audience and to camp sponsors, giving your work great exposure!
