Scott Markewitz, From Extreme Moves to the Other Side of the Camera

For almost thirty years, Scott Markewitz has been living in Salt Lake City, Utah. Originally attracted to the area for skating, skiing, and other outdoor activities, he now takes advantage of all the photographic opportunities available year-round. With his involvement in skiing, cycling, running, climbing, and other sports, he knows the best locations for many kinds of photographic setups no matter what season.

Markewitz skied as a hobby, and eventually turned pro after earning a degree in Marketing from the University of Utah. As a professional, he skied for many photographers and even flew down the slopes in a few movies. “I definitely gained a lot of experience working with the photographers at the time, so I guess you can call that my photographic training,” he says. “I went from one side of the camera to the other.”
