Biography

Iz La Motte is an adventure photographer and filmmaker who was raised in the Catskill
Mountains of New York and educated in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Today, Iz
splits her time between the deep snow and sharp ridge lines of Utah’s Wasatch Range
and the serene green spaces that surround her off-grid cabin in the woods of Vermont.
She has developed her craft into one that focuses on the human story and its relation
to the world. Iz believes that everyone has a story to tell. Her passion lies in working
with individuals and brands to tell their own impactful stories in a way that feels true to
them.

To Iz, the connection between female photographers and female athletes yields great images. That same dynamic is a focus of her recent work as a videographer, a medium with so much dimension it challenges her to think and act even more dynamically.

When it comes to filming skiing, you have to deal with extreme elements and have the athletic chops to keep up with professional athletes. Iz handles herself well in the mountains.
