Capture some of the most inspiring and colorful scenery in Southwestern Utah on this weeklong all-inclusive photo tour. Different from other photo tours in the area, this landscape intensive adventure is perfect for the intermediate and advanced shooter who wants more of an active engagement with the landscape and is willing to explore hidden gems that are worth a little effort to reach.
With our limited group of 6, we focus on being light and mobile with our gear, without sacrificing professional results, as we explore both a few iconic locations and off the beaten path places that are worth hiking to and photographing with less crowds. Emphasis will be on the artful execution of the landscape image by mastering ethereal Southwest light and designing images for maximum impact.
Locations include: stunning, sweeping views of Zion National Park and its towering sandstone walls, intimate slot canyon hikes with possible flowing water, surprisingly colorful fall foliage in desert surroundings, and beautiful slot canyons and other photogenic places in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.
Included in this photo adventure:
• Comfortable, highly rated nightly accommodations
• Group transportation from St. George, Utah in executive 4WD Sprinter Van
• Outfitted and guided slot canyon hikes
• Constructive critique sessions with post processing instruction and guidance
