Joshua Tree National Park is another of those places in the West that will beguile and amaze the photographer. It is a unique landscape marked not only by its signature succulent (not a tree, despite its name) but also by stunning rock formations of all sizes; spring wildflower, cactus and ocotillo blooms; gorgeous vistas; and the remains of early 20th century mines and cattle ranches (and rustlers). Rick LePage, who is co-teaching this workshop with me, says that it’s one of his favorite places on the planet, and I guarantee that after a few days in the park, you’ll be glad you came along. It’s that beautiful.

In Joshua Tree you can stop literally anywhere in the park, release a group of photographers, and everyone will come back with cool and unique images. It’s the perfect location to practice photography in an otherworldly place, with trees that look like they came from the mind of Dr. Suess and towering rock formations of all shapes and sizes that are as fantastic as the trees.
