Learn from the pros and shoot top trail runners in the field
Come join us in the gorgeous Revelstoke-area high country. Bruno Long
This three-day course puts you in the field under the watchful eye of trail running’s top pro shooters. Learn the tricks of lighting, composition, getting in position, anticipating movement and more, from the photographers who have succeeded in the field.
You will also learn how to efficiently edit your images, and how to improve them in Photoshop. The camp also covers what magazine editors look for in submissions, and how to improve your chances of getting published.
The 2017 Trail Runner Photo Camp will take place August 8-11 in stunning Revelstoke, British Columbia.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Days are spent in the field shooting some of the sport’s top trail runners. On the fantastic trails of the Mount Revelstoke and Glacier national parks, our crew of athletes will run while you shoot and receive instruction. In the evenings you’ll return to the hotel for dinner, photo processing and a critique of your day’s work by the instructors. The goal is to improve your photography each day and have you go home with professional-level photos.

This year's lead instructor is Fredrik Marmsater (below) one of the most active and respected mountain-sports photographers in the business.
Our assistant instructor will be Myke Hermsmeyer. Myke is a former athlete and brand-content manager currently working as an endurance-sports photographer focused on ultrarunning and trail races in remote mountain environments. Some of the races he has covered include the Hardrock 100, The Rut 50K, Franklin Mountain 50K, Mount Marathon, the Moab Trail Marathon, North Face Endurance Challenge Series and the 2016 4 Deserts Sri Lanka stage race.
Also instructing will be accomplished sports photographer Randy Levensaler (also Trail Runner's Art Director).
Each student will receive a photo-assignment agreement—you’ll be shooting as a professional, gaining invaluable insight into the field, and getting the opportunity to have your photos published in Trail Runner. Every student will get the opportunity to have photos published in a gallery on trailrunnermag.com. Break through to the next level with the Trail Runner Photo Camp!
