Arches and Canyonlands National Parks

Photography Workshop

Aug 16th - Aug 20th, 2020


Arches and Canyonlands Photography Workshops

Join us as we make our desert swing into two photographer playgrounds that have extreme opportunities to capture some of the most unique landscapes in the world.  Arches National Park, nestled just 5 miles north of Moab, is the largest collection of sandstone arches in the world. 65 million years in the making, these sandstone formations have risen and eroded to create alien like landscapes throughout the park. With over 2000 arches and breathtaking rock formations, photographers can spend weeks attempting to capture the essence of this park through their lens. Having navigated this park several times, we have established an agenda that will help our photographers capture all the beauty this park has to offer.  Canyonlands National Park, 30 miles southwest of Moab, offers some of the best landscapes to capture canyon mazes and sandstone pillars. From Island in the Sky to the Needles area, we will spend 2 days exploring and photographing this unbelievable landscape. This trip will also include night photography, capturing the Milky Way against the amazing foregrounds.  Not only are your group leaders experts in photographing and navigating these magnificent landmarks; they pride themselves on maintaining and respecting the natural environment of all parks they visit.
