Join me in Zion in the fall for one of the most epic landscape photo workshop in the West. Zion is world famous for its scenery and is a much see and shoot location for any serious nature and landscape photographer. Over the week we will explore and photograph many of Zion's scenic gems from the world famous Narrows, the Watchman, Checkerboard Mesa and many, many more smaller and off the beaten path locations inside the park.


We will meet on day one at 2pm for an informal meet and greet at the hotel before heading out for a sunset shoot that afternoon. Each day after that will be full of adventure, fun and serious shooting. On most days, weather dependent, we will be out well before sunrise and for several hours after sunrise working big and small landscape images. In the afternoons we typically break for lunch and follow up with an informative classroom session focusing on both field techniques and developing images to their full potential. In the late afternoon we will be back in the park or its surrounding areas photographing world class desert scenery all the way up and past sunset. On one of the days, we will spend an entire day hiking and photographing the world famous Narrows of the Virgin River. On our final day, we will have a sunrise/morning shoot and be back to the hotel with ample time for folks to check out.
