Steve Lloyd Wins Ski Salt Lake Shootout… Again

(By, Derek Taylor)-- For the second year in a row, Salt Lake City native Steve Lloyd is the Ski Salt Lake Shootout overall champion. Lloyd beat out a diverse field comprised half of local photographers, and half of professionals from all across the globe, including Alaska, Australia, Cleveland, and Chamonix.

“In my estimation, every single team produced at least three to five great photos. The winner would need to produce eight,” says POWDER’s Director of Photography David Reddick, the head judge for the event. “That winner was unanimously the team of Steve Lloyd. Steve and company absolutely crushed it, producing a series of stunning shots.”

Mike Schirf, competing in his third Shootout, moved up from a third place finish in 2012 to take second place, and had two skiers in the top three for the Athlete’s Choice award. Australian veteran Tony Harrington took third. “The battle between second and third could’ve gone either way with these two,” says Reddick. “This was one of the more deliberated decisions amongst the judging panel.”

The eight photographers were teamed up with two local skiers, and were allowed to pre-select one athlete from anywhere to bring with them. They shot over four days—one each at the four Cottonwood Canyon resorts, and were asked to submit their best two photos from each destination. The photos were then judged by a panel of visual arts professionals consisting of Reddick, Salt Lake City photographer and author Lee Cohen, Ski Utah Creative Director Chris Pearson, and Sean Buckley, the Director of Creative Services for Visit Salt Lake.
