Explore the wondrous hoodoos of Bryce Canyon National Park day and night on this 5 day photo workshop in Southern Utah, home to some of the best light for landscape
photography in the world.
Pending weather, we will spend at least 3 full days in Bryce Canyon National Park, and the balance of time in other unique red rocks and slot canyon 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-winning 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 months 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 1-3 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 Bryce Canyon is 7500'-9,000'
above sea level, so a day in the area before the workshop is recommended if coming from 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. We will try to carpool as much as possible to locations, but if you are not comfortable sharing ride with other vaccinated individuals, plan on driving your own vehicle.
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. We will also shoot night photography on 1-2 nights, pending weather.
Participants arrive in Tropic, Utah. Kick-off dinner and opening
presentation with a brief instructional session on the plan for the week, as well as a sunset shoot.
