Arches and Canyonlands


Location: Moab, Utah

Dates: November 3-7, 2024 Sunday at 7 pm – Thursday morning after morning shoot

Cost: $1899

Details: This is one of our favorite national parks. Tom has been leading photo workshops and doing assignments in Moab for the last 20 years. Photograph striking red rock formations on blue skies. Explore myriad arches against an iconic western landscape. On this workshop we will photograph the best features in Arches and Canyonlands National Parks including Delicate Arch, Mesa Arch, Balanced Rock, Landscape Arch, the Windows and Fisher Towers in Castleton Valley.

In addition to landscapes, we plan to photograph the night sky in front of Moab’s dramatic rock formations. We have timed this workshop to coincide with a newer moon so that we will have great skies for night photography. If we get cloudy skies we will use ND filters to create slow motion cloudscapes over touring red rock walls.

On this course you will learn about:

  • Exposure
  • Composition
  • Using filters (what you cannot find in PhotoShop)
  • Processing in Lightroom and PhotoShop
  • Photographing the milky way
  • Long exposure photography (clouds)

We will be photographing mornings and evenings with midday classes and image critiques.
