Private Grand Canyon Photo Workshops & Tours 2017-07-27T14:42:24+00:00


Your Schedule, Your Goals

Whether you are new to the world of photography or a seasoned photographer,  a private Grand Canyon workshop provides you with an opportunity to learn from, and to photograph alongside, someone that is passionate about this amazing place and the art of photography. Get the most out of your trip while learning new technical and creative photographic techniques, and photograph from some of the most stunning locations in the park. Adam is committed to sharing with you what motivates and inspires him with the aim of helping you realize your creative vision. 

Before the workshop we will send you a short questionnaire, your answers will allow Adam to better understand your photographic skill level and what you would like to accomplish during the workshop. Then, working together we’ll develop a program that ensures that you get the most out of your time spent at the Grand Canyon. Let us know if you’re traveling with family or friends as we can create a experience that is just as fun and informative for them too!



We’re often asked “which rim is best, the South Rim or the North Rim?”  The South Rim is the more popular of the 2 rims because it is easier to get to, and has more lodging available. The North Rim is only open from mid-May to mid-October, and it has fewer viewpoints to photograph from, but it is not as frequently visited and can be a more relaxing experience.

Each rim has it’s own unique photographic challenges and rewards, and either rim is a great photography destination. Many of our workshop participants find that once they’ve done one rim, they want to come back and experience the other, and often more than once. 



Sunrise, Sunset

The private workshop experience typically begins with a mid-afternoon through sunset photography session, followed by a sunrise through early morning photography session the next day. We prefer to begin in the afternoon, versus a sunrise start, so that we may have time to work together before the light gets good. The sunrise session typically begins approximately an hour before sunrise and is completed approximately an hour-and-a-half to 2 hours afterwards. The afternoon and sunset session begins approximately 3 to 4 hours before sunset and concludes about an hour afterwards.



Adam has spent over 500 days exploring the Grand Canyon, photographing it from the South Rim, the North Rim and below the rim covering all 277 miles of the Colorado River. In addition to that, he has lived in the park as the Artist-in-Residence. During this time he has gained invaluable experience photographing the Grand Canyon in all conditions including snow, rain, dust storms, and lightning. The result is that he knows not only where the best locations are but which locations are best under varying conditions.

from Adam:
“The Grand Canyon is my passion. This is place that I truly love and respect, and I feel it’s a privilege to share it.  Ultimately, my goal is to get you to the best locations, help you become a better photographer, and have a great time!”

“Not only is Adam a great instructor, but he’s such a wonderful person to educate people about the Grand Canyon. He was so knowledgeable – not just about where to get the great shots, but about the park and the surrounding area in general. Adam’s love of the Canyon and of photography is not only evident, it’s contagious.


“You were the consummate professional from our first contact through the end of the workshop, and you were extremely organized. You were an extremely enthusiastic and affirming teacher, and I learned a lot of things to help me take my photography skills to the next level. I also loved hearing all the stories and history about the Grand Canyon as well. It really brought the place to life for me.”
