Our schedule is designed with flexibility, allowing us to chase the best weather, light, and conditions for perfect shots. Trust my expertise & over 10 years of exploring and photographing Death Valley and the surroiunding areas to guide you to the optimal spots to capture compelling photographs.

After our time in Death Valley...We're moving west, folks! Just two hours away, Lone Pine, California awaits us with its majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains.

You'll hone your skills in crafting compositions, working with a variety of light from soft to dramatic, controlling dynamic range, and managing depth of field.
