Island Lake Lodge launches "The Photo Shoot Out." A new
event showcasing local and up and coming pro photographers and athletes
March 24, 25 & 26 2008.
Event: Island Lake Photo Shoot Out
Place: Island Lake Lodge, Fernie B.C
Date: March 24, 25, 26 2008.
The first annual Photo Shoot Out at Island Lake is an exciting
opportunity for local and up and coming pro photographers, skiers and
boarders to break onto the scene during a 3 day catskiing competition
throughout Island Lake's world renowned terrain. Untracked powder and
the majestic Lizard Range of the BC Rockies make Island Lake the
ultimate location for a Photo Shoot Out.
Six photographers will be chosen and be
given the opportunity to hand pick three athletes to shoot over the 3
days. Once the day of shooting is complete at Island Lake, the group
will head to Historic Downtown Fernie where photographs from the days
adventures will be shown at a local watering hole. A panel of judges
will decide on the best photographs of the day, taking into
consideration components such as the composition of the shot, the best
line and the best powder shot. The best photos, along with other
categories such as people's choice, will be rewarded daily with prizes
supplied by our industry partners.
Steve Kuijt, guide and general manager
of Island Lake Lodge explains the purpose of the event: “This is a
fantastic opportunity for both grassroots photographers and athletes to
gain exposure and ride the epic terrain at Island Lake.”
