Location: Torrey and Bryce Canyon City, Utah
Dates: April 19-23, 2023 Wednesday at 7 pm (after dinner) – Sunday morning after morning shoot.
Description: Join Tom and Cree in Southern Utah to photograph stunning red rock landscapes. We have chosen Bryce and Capitol Reef National Parks for our destinations to avoid the crowds and make the most of our time in the field. We will look for golden light at dawn and dusk and head out again at night for sessions under the stars.
Capitol Reef iNational Park is an International Dark Sky Park. We have timed our visit to take advantage of moonless skies. During the day we will photograph the red rock cliffs, canyons, domes and bridges in golden light, At night will will use tripods and wide angle lenses to capture the night sky above these features.
The red rock spires of Bryce Canyon are one of the iconic images of the American South West. This is the perfect spot to capture vivid panorama photographs of thousands of rock spires. As you descend down the trail into the spires, the photographs become even more interesting with giant pines, sunstars and rock silhouettes to create interest.
We have chosen the best of Utah landscapes for this workshop!
