Death Valley is a landscape photographer’s dream location. In this small group workshop you’ll explore and photograph our largest national park outside of Alaska while learning to expand your creative vision and better use your camera equipment. Death Valley’s 3.3 million acres are filled with mountain sized sand dunes, colorful canyons, volcanic craters, otherworldly badlands, ghost mines, sub-sea-level salt flats and peaks over 11,000 feet. As a bonus, we'll have a pre-dawn crescent moonrise during this workshop.
