Steve Lloyd has a winning knack for photographing skiers on steep, deep slopes in the Cottonwood canyons.
The 36-year-old Cottonwood Heights man won the Ski Salt Lake Shootout for the second straight year, defeating seven other photographers in the sixth-annual contest sponsored by Visit Salt Lake.
"It was nice to win the prize money," Lloyd said Friday of the $3,000 first prize. "But the money was just icing on the cake. I already won, getting all the photographs I got in the competition."
Eight photographers and a squadron of athletes had five days, Feb. 11-16, to show off Salt Lake County’s four resorts — Solitude, Snowbird, Brighton and Alta — in ways that depict picturesque settings, challenging slopes, fluffy powder and ambiance.
