IMAGES BY JONATHAN SELKOWITZ
For the last twenty years Jonathan Selkowitz has been creating striking photographs of the best skiers in the world for international editorial and commercial clients. Covering World Cup, National Championships, World Championships, and three Winter Olympics, Selkowitz has provided the images that defined competitive ski racing, the U.S. Ski Team, and the athletes and community that he has become a part of.
Along with an unofficial minor in ski racing, Jonathan’s degree in Art History from Colby College has served him well in refining his style, whether capturing images of action, personality, product, or scenery. Selkowitz strives to “create visual motion in still images that authentically illustrate the grace, beauty, and uniqueness of the subject.” His global work experience has come from the ability to understand the nuanced needs of his clients and an amiable determined work ethic.
Recognition of the balanced approach to his work has come as being named official photographer of the U.S. Ski Team from 2000-2007, and awarded the title of 2012 Journalist of the Year by the Federation of International Skiing (FIS). Aside from almost every ski magazine, his work has been published in a wide variety of other publications from Rolling Stone, to Sports Illustrated and Vanity Fair.
Jonathan supports the U.S. Ski Team athletes in their promotional and fundraising efforts. He currently sits on the Doug Coombs Foundation Board of Directors in Jackson Hole Wyoming, where he spent nearly a decade teaching at the Jackson Hole Ski Area, and coaching with the Jackson Hole Ski and Snowboard Club.
