About the Deep Summer Photo Challenge
Six Photographers | Three Days | One Epic Slideshow Event
Back for its 6th year, the Deep Summer Photo Challenge turns six different lenses on some of the best mountain bike action and terrain in the world. The Challenge does not ask for a career-long body of work from the contenders. It demands a slice of big-scale action captured in a small segment of time. This year's show promises more variety and a broader perspective from a stacked field of photographers with expanded boundaries to the Sea to Sky Corridor (Squamish - Pemberton) and a required element from within the Whistler Mountain Bike Park. With three days to shoot, the constraint of time is as inspiring as it is unforgiving. The six Deep Summer Photo Challenge shows will be presented Wednesday August 14 under the stars in front of a massive crowd in the state of the art facility at Whistler Olympic Plaza.
