photography in the world.
Pending weather, we will spend at least 2 1/2 days in Bryce Canyon National Park, 1 1/2 days in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments, and the balance of time in other unique red rocks locations.
Subjects will include, but not be limited
to: Unique rock formations, natural arches, slot canyons, canyon rim vistas, and night photography in internationally recognized dark skies parks. We will end the workshop with a group slide
show and critique.
About the Photographer:
Colin is an award-wining photographer who
has spent the past decade exploring the red rock Canyonlands of Southern
Utah. As a part time resident of Moab
since 2011, he has spent several weeks a year exploring the photographic riches
in and around Southern Utah in every season. He
is a certified photography travel guide in Arches, Canyonlands
& Bryce Canyon national parks, as well as Bears Ears & Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments.
All skill levels are welcome. Participants who have a basic understanding
of digital workflow and knowledge or exposure to Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom
will get the most from this workshop.
Though locations visited during this workshop are readily
accessible, the hilly terrain requires some moderate hiking (typically 2-5 miles round trip). Participants MUST BE IN GOOD PHYSICAL SHAPE
to climb and descend moderate to steep inclines. They should wear sturdy
and use caution on slippery and rocky slopes. Keep in mind that the
elevation in Escalante is 5-6000', and Bryce Canyon is 8-9,000'
above sea level.
Group Size: The workshop will be limited to 8

Airfare & Local
Airfare and local transportation is NOT included. There is not much in the way of public
transportation in the area, and the closest major airports are about 4 hours away in Salt Lake City(SLC) or Las Vegas, NV. Note: due to COVID-19, please plan to drive yourself (we may carpool for shorter drives, but for longer drives to Escalante it is more difficult to social distance in enclosed spaces such as vehicles)
Rather than adhering to a set itinerary, we will stay
flexible so that we optimize our time in the field, giving you the best chances
to capture great images based on weather and lighting conditions. For the Bryce Canyon part of the workshop, we plan to
photograph golden hour at sunrise and sunset each day, with time during the day
for additional shooting locations, instructional sessions, and down time. The slot canyons in the Escalante area are best photographed during the day, and involve more hiking.
Participants arrive in Tropic, Utah. Kick-off dinner and opening
presentation with a brief instructional session on the plan for the week, and
introduction to the area.
Tuesday thru Friday
Specific locations will be determined by weather conditions.
Morning field trip followed by breakfast. Group critiquing
session, slide show and workshop wrap-up.
