Great American Southwest Photography Workshop

The American Southwest offers some of the most unique vistas and landscapes on planet earth. From Arches National Park to the Grand Canyon, there are literally dozens of amazing places to see and photograph! Iconic scenes are practically around every corner. Some, like the "Mittens" of Monument Valley, are blatantly obvious. While others, like the ancient Anasazi dwellings we'll visit, are truly a hidden treasure.

Mother Nature has done some of her best handiwork in the Desert Southwest. Carved by wind and rain, colorful red rocks take on some astonishing shapes. They've named a national park after these shapes; of course I speak of Arches NP. We'll hike up to the iconic Delicate Arch, for a once in a lifetime sunset opportunity.

We will photograph the Colorado River as it makes a perfect bend around a huge sandstone mesa over a 400ft straight drop. Your adrenaline will skyrocket as you capture images of this beautiful scene…and come away with a great story to tell your friends and family. People from around the world visit the American Southwest, because this incredible locale is one of the few places on the planet you can see such geological diversity.

Come join us for a 9-day adventure as we visit over a dozen iconic locations and teach you how to capture them in your camera. We've put together a very well thought out itinerary designed to allow you ample time to capture stunning images at each location. We'll cover a lot of amazing ground, but you'll never spend more than a few hours riding in our plush Mercedes van. During any down time, you can choose to relax and take a siesta, learn some post-processing skills, or have some images critiqued by our pros. This is the combination of a highly interactive learning experience and a vacation of a lifetime!
