An exciting, photographic instruction oriented Arizona workshop with professional photographer and instructor Alain Briot and art instructor Natalie Briot.
Here is a detailed account of our itinerary:
Friday, April 10th, 2020
We will meet you in Page on Friday evening 2 hours before sunset approximately. We will email you the exact meeting time and location approximately two weeks before the workshop. This location will be close to Page. We will photograph the sunset that evening from a location near Page.
Saturday, April 11th, 2020
We will begin our day at the famed Horseshoe Bend. This is one of the most hidden treasures of the area and sunrise there can be an unforgettable experience. Morning and mid-day will be spent in Upper Antelope Canyon. This jewel of the southwest is one of the most sought after photography locations. It will be your turn to create your images of this photographic wonderland. Later on that afternoon we will conduct a print review (bring some of your work, between 4 and 10 prints, 8x10 or larger). In the evening we will photograph the sunset over Lake Powell from one of the best overlooks around.
Sunday, April 12th, 2020
We will be up early to photograph the sunrise over some beautiful sandstone formations. After breakfast we will explore and photograph a little known slot canyon (not Antelope Canyon). This will be one of the highlights of the workshop since this slot canyon is little known and rarely photographed. Sunset photo shoot will be at a little known overlook with fantastic views of the Canyon Country.
Monday, April 13th, 2020
We will be up early to photograph the sunrise over Lake Powell from a different location than on Saturday evening. After breakfast we will spend several hours photographing Lower Antelope Canyon. After lunch we will conduct print reviews and afterwards we will continue exploring the sandstone formations near Page and photograph sunset from one of the locations we will be exploring.
Tuesday, April 14th, 2020
We will photograph the sunrise from a new overlook. The workshop ends after breakfast to allow everyone plenty of time to drive home.
About Antelope Canyon
Photographers love Antelope Canyon because it is one of the most photogenic natural sites anywhere in the world. Antelope Canyon actually consists of two separate canyons, about five miles apart from each other: Upper Antelope and Lower Antelope. Most workshops take you to either the Upper or the Lower part of Antelope Canyon, as these two canyons are called. But, doing so means that you only get to see half of this wonder of the world! Well, not anymore. We have decided to take you to both Upper and Lower Antelope Canyons in the same workshop! That way you can really say you saw it all (and photographed it as well)!
Plus, since we will be in Page, land of incredible rock formations and scenery, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to show you some of our other favorite photographic locations. So, we decided to take you to Horseshoe Bend, one of the most amazing overlooks over the Colorado River, for sunrise. We will also take you to a remote location where you will find Hoodoos, whimsical rock formations that are particularly photogenic, for sunset. You will also have the opportunity to photograph Lake Powell at sunrise and sunset from two fantastic overlooks. Lake Powell is world-famous for the incredible sandstone formations and for the unique colors the rocks take during sunrise and sunset. Finally, we will be taking you to some of the lesser known areas, some known only to Natalie and I, including slot canyons and other locations that we discovered on our own over the many years we have been exploring this area. This is truly a unique photographic workshop from which you will return with a great collection of images to add to your portfolio!
Furthermore, you will be practicing Photographic Skill Exercises daily. We will have handouts for you and will be explaining these exercises in detail. We will then work individually with each of you to help you with your exercises.
