Join Muench Workshops pro Michael Strickland for this floating photography workshop down the San Juan River. Spend 6 nights in the canyon of the San Juan under the stars, enjoying the river at its peak flow in the spring, when it's not too hot and the river moves you through a scenic wonderland at a relaxed pace.
Floating on oar-powered rafts, you will hear nothing but birds and the sounds of the river. This is a safe and comfortable way to travel, with plenty of room for your camera equipment – it allows for more time to explore and photograph. Our river guides will share canyon geology, early river running history, river ecology and many other facts and river lore.
Everything needed for the entire expedition is carried on the raft. Our group size of just five guests is nice and small, allowing for everyone to spend time photographing all the amazing locations with plenty of one-on-one time with Michael. You float the section of the river from 'put in' at Sand Island to 'take-out' at Clay Hills Crossing. Daily itinerary includes rafting, camping, hiking, swimming and, of course, photography.
This workshop begins and ends in Flagstaff Arizona where we will be driven by our river outfitters and guides from Canyon REO to the put-in location near Bluff, Utah. Following our seven days on the river, Michael will conduct an image review in our private meeting groom at Goulding's Lodge near Monument Valley.
This will be a great opportunity to raft one of the most beautiful canyons in the west, and capture images of beautiful canyon walls, streams, Ancestral Puebloan sites and so much more. We will eat like royalty at every camp, where our guides will prepare amazing meals with fresh meat, vegetables and herbs. All camping equipment will be provided.
You will come away with a much deeper knowledge in landscape photography, having spent an intense 7 days around many like-minded photographers in a spectacular location.
