Online: Special Guest Series- Creating Images on Mt Washington in Winter with Joe Klementovich
December 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
December 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Photography in the winter can be a challenging, and photographing on Mt Washington, one of the most erratic weather locations in New England is no exception. Photographer Joe Klementovich has spent over 25 years working in the White Mountains, as a search and rescue leader, avalanche forecaster, photographer, drone operator and guide. Over those years Joe has experienced the punishing winds and the lowest of frigid lows and knows a little bit about how to photograph in this type of inclement weather!
In this session, I’ll go over everything. Starting with personal gear because you can’t be creative if you’re cold and uncomfortable. Then we get into the camera equipment, batteries, lens, covers, and pack it all uphill. We’ll go over weather apps quickly and other resources that can help with local forecasts in the White Mountains, one of those being avalanche conditions. All that taken care of we can get into the creative side of being on Mount Washington in Winter. We’ll talk about action sports, skiing, and ice climbing as well as the challenges of getting to the right place at the right time. We’ll go over shooting landscape images in snow and bright light conditions, how to get those details in the snow, and how to make the most of your day or night in the mountains.
