Marko Shapiro is one of the most legendary action sports photographers of our time. Marko was the captain of Team Clambin, and for 50 years, Marko has called Verbier home and has shot all of the ski legends there. On the podcast, we talk about how he created a timeless style of photography through skiing powder and reading light, shooting with Dick Barrymore, Wayne Wong, Glen Plake, Scot Schmidt, John Faulkner, Ace Kvale, and more. It’s a true history lesson with a guy who really owns his nickname “Grumpy”
