This workshop takes you to one of the most photogenic locations: the otherworldly landscape of Death Valley National Park. We will spend most of the workshop exploring the beauty of Death Valley, before concluding our expedition in the Alabama Hills, at the foot of Mount Whitney. On our last day at sunrise we will photograph the location where Ansel Adams created one of his most famous photographs: Mount Whitney from Lone Pine.
The itinerary for this workshop was designed with two goals in mind: convenient travel arrangements and exciting photographic opportunities. The workshop starts in Death Valley and concludes in Lone Pine, California.

We will meet you in Death Valley National Park. You will receive information on our exact meeting time, together with directions to Death Valley approximately two weeks before the workshop.
On this first day we will start with workshop and park orientation and introduce each other. After a first photography tutorial, which will address the goals of this workshop, we will focus on photographing sunset at Death Valley.

We will get up early to photograph the sunrise. After breakfast we will start an all-day exploration of Death Valley. We will photograph well-known locations such as Badwater, Artist Point, Dante’s View and much more. We will end our day at our chosen location where we will photograph the sunset. This will be a day to remember.

On Sunday we will again rise early to reach the Stovepipe Well Sand Dunes before sunrise and explore the photographic opportunities there for several hours. After Breakfast we will start our second day of photography and exploration, this time focusing on the lesser-known aspects of Death Valley.

On Monday we will do one more sunrise shoot over Death Valley from another stunning overlook (you will love our choice for that day). After breakfast and checkout we will proceed towards Lone Pine. After lunch we will proceed towards the Alabama Hills to search for a suitable location for sunset.
Monday will also be print review day. Make sure to bring 5 to 10 prints of your work, 8×10 or larger. Our print reviews are comprehensive and friendly, lasting from 15 minutes to an hour. The print review provides a superb opportunity to ask any and all questions about your work. It is also a wonderful opportunity to get feedback on your work, not only from Natalie and I but also from other workshop participants.
