Serenity of Winter
Winter Photography Workshop at the Grand Canyon ~ January 18th to 21st, 2019
With the change of seasons comes a more peaceful and quiet time at the Grand Canyon. Winter brings a chance of snow and low-hanging ragged clouds. The days are shorter, and the park is relatively calm and quite making for a much more serene experience. This a fantastic time to photograph the Grand Canyon and to capture the dramatic vistas that only the Grand Canyon can offer.
The size of this workshop is being kept very small to insure that everyone gets one-on-one instruction, and so that you will have plenty of space to capture the canyon without feeling crowded or like you’re missing out on the best spots. As always, Adam’s goal is to help you realize your creative potential, to have a great experience, and for you to return home with great photos!
This workshop includes single-occupancy lodging in comfortable rooms at Red Feather Lodge on the South Rim.
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 Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) as it is the nearest major airport to Grand Canyon National Park. It is approximately a 4-hour drive from PHX to our lodge on the South Rim in the town of Tusayan, Arizona. An alternative is to fly into Flagstaff Pulliam Airport (FLG), conveniently located only 90 minutes from Grand Canyon National Park.
The rim of the canyon can be very cold during the winter months, and temperatures can go below freezing as early as September and as late as May. The high temperature can reach into the 60s (16-20°c) on warmer days. Winter also brings the chance of snow with the South Rim averaging about 60″ of snowfall annually. It’s best to come prepared for cold weather and to dress in layers. We will send an email a few days before the workshop with a weather forecast so you will have a better idea as to what the temperatures will be like.
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.”
