On this photo adventure, we will explore many picturesque locations. This area is is overflowing with dramatic sandstone features including arches, monoliths, endless canyons, red rock, white domes, and countless stunning desert features to feast your eyes on.

Be prepared to enjoy more diversity in the landscape as we venture outside of the more well-known locations. This region is home to some of the most interesting badlands in the world. The colorful hues of Bentonite Hills, the bluish Mancos Shale badlands, and the deep martian-red badlands of the Chinle Formations are just some of the areas we will visit.

With its dark skies and endless foregrounds, we’ll also have several opportunities to photographing the stars in one of the few remaining dark skies in the US.  This is a drone-friendly workshop and we will be happy to assist with instructions on how to take spectacular photos using your drone!
