North Rim of the Grand Canyon
Alumni Photography Workshop ~ August 20th to 23rd, 2018
This workshop is reserved for those who have previously participated in one of our Grand Canyon workshops. We will be placing an emphasis on more advanced photographic skills. The size of this workshop is being limited to no more than 7 participants to insure that everyone gets one-on-one instruction.
This workshop includes single-occupancy lodging in Frontier Cabins at the Grand Canyon Lodge on the North Rim for all 3 nights.
Meals and Transportation
Meals are not included, but the workshop groups often have a great time dining together. Transportation and National Park entrance fees are not provided. We will caravan and/or carpool to our destinations as much as possible. Due to limited parking, you are encouraged to share rides with your fellow workshop participants.
For this workshop we recommend flying into and out of Las Vegas McCarran International Airport as it is most centrally located to the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. It is a 4.5-hour drive from the airport to the North Rim.
From mid-July through mid-September the Grand Canyon and most of the American Southwest sees a major shift in the weather patterns with the arrival of the Southwest Monsoon. This period typically has afternoon thunderstorms with brief periods of heavy rain, which can be great for photography. The high temperature can be in the 80s (27-32°C), with early morning temperatures occasionally dipping into the 40s (4-9°C).
About the Schedule
Specific details will be provided upon completion of your registration. The itinerary will be set just prior to the beginning of the workshop and will be fluid so that we can adapt to changes in weather conditions, thus allowing us to capture the best moments. Plan on early mornings and late evenings as we will be starting well before sunrise and shooting until after sunset. The schedule will allow for downtime during our mid-day rest periods.
What Makes These Workshops Special?
I have spent over 600 days exploring and photographing the Grand Canyon, from the South Rim, the North Rim and below the rim including covering all 277 miles of the Colorado River within the park. In addition to that, I have lived in the park as the Artist-in-Residence for Grand Canyon National Park. During this time I gained invaluable experience photographing the Grand Canyon in all conditions including snow, rain, dust storms, and lightning. The result is that I know where the best locations are but which locations are best under varying conditions. Be sure to check out what my fans have to say on Facebook and here about the workshops.

“I just wanted to drop you a quick ‘thank you’ in providing me with such an awesome workshop! It’s rare to find someone with your talents that also has the ability to communicate effectively and provide an atmosphere that is inspiring to learn within.”
“Early mornings and late nights!!! You keep it moving during your workshops, but it all is worth it at the end… Great pictures, great friend and overall just an amazing experience!! I recommend it highly!!! Thanks again!!”
“I’ve just completed my third Grand Canyon workshop with Adam, and they just keep getting better. He’s been very sensitive to my skill level each time and offers just the kind of advice I’m ready for.”
“I signed up for my first workshop with Adam with a love of photography, but as a novice of “real” camera equipment and no experience. Somehow I convinced Adam to take me on, and he promised to help me learn to use the gear. His love and knowledge of photography as well as the Grand Canyon are unmatched!”
“Grand Canyon photography workshop was awesome! The insight to the canyon Adam shared was so informative and the instruction concise. So helpful in getting you comfortable with all aspects of shooting landscape photography. Would highly recommend his workshops to anyone working on improving their landscape photography.”
