Boulder, Utah Photo Workshop

The majestic Grand Staircase descending toward the Grand Canyon and the canyons of the Escalante are a creative photographer’s dream come true. Boulder Mountain rises to the west of Capital Reef National Park in the picturesque Aquarius Plateau of South Central Utah. It is the highest timbered plateau in North America, with over 50,000 acres of rolling forests of pine, spruce, fir and aspen, as well as expansive meadowlands. The area features the dramatic red rock canyons and sculpted formations for which southern Utah is famous, but it is a little known and refreshing alternative to more heavily trafficked southwestern locations.

This workshop is led by renowned photographers and natural teachers Jack Dykinga and Bill Ellzey. Each day we will be out to photograph during the best morning and evening light, following the daily weather conditions to make the most of opportunities. During mid-day hours, Jack and Bill will make presentations Inn on composition and creativity, light and exposure, digital workflow and maximizing image potential through post-production.

Based out of the beautiful Boulder Mountain Lodge, and with first-class dining at the famous Hell’s Backbone Grill, this is a superb workshop scenario, which helps explain why Visionary Wild clients often repeat this experience. We hope you will join us!

$3700 USD per person double occupancy; $4195 USD single occupancy. There is a no-lodging option available for $3295 USD.

Package includes lodging for four nights (checking in on Oct 15 and checking out on Oct 19) and all meals from dinner on October 15 through lunch on October 19 (including wine and beer with dinner). A prorated rate is available for those who do not require lodging.

  1. Can’t do this in 2019 but I’d be very interested if this tour, or a similar tour, is offered in 2020. I’m in my 80s, but I’m pretty healthy and active for my age, walking 2-3.5 miles a day and doing other exercise as well. But I do have a couple of questions – (1) roughly how much walking is done, per day – and how much of that involves climbing? (2) How many hours daily will the group be “in the field” (I realize that most photo tours have to get up at dawn or earlier, and also catch the “golden hour” of the evening).

    I’ve sold off all my DSLR gear, so I’d be bringing a Panny RX10 iv, tripod, appropriate filters etc.
