Join our photography workshop in one of the newest national parks, Joshua Tree, that was elevated from national monument to national park status in 1994, and for good reason.
The park’s nearly 800,000 acres have seen human habitation for at least 5,000 years. From the earliest known Pinto Culture (4,000-8,000 years ago) to the ranchers, miners and homesteaders of the late 19th and early 20th centuries – there is a wealth of archeological and historic sites protected by the park.
We are excited to be returning to this amazing place where there is plenty to photograph; from the iconic park namesakes, the Joshua trees to wonderful rock formations created by early volcanic and tectonic action and sculpted by erosion. This is a location where the light creates all sorts of surprises and patterns.
With luck — after all, we are in the high desert — we should be able to photograph the night sky in one of the locations we think is ideal for such photography.
We will see and photograph formations with names such as Skull Rock, Split Rock and Jumbo Rocks, travel through extended high plains dotted with the signature trees and the beautiful bu infamous and non-friendly Cholla Cactus.
For those who are interested, we will also be running a photo workshop in the nearby Salton Sea area with discounts offered for those who join us in both workshops.
