Private Photography Workshops & Tours
Your Schedule. Your Goals. Your Trip.
My private workshops are all about you as I custom tailor the experience to your schedule, your photographic needs, and your skill level. It includes me sharing my photographic expertise, and photographing from what I have discovered to be some of the best locations at the canyon. I am committed to sharing with you what motivates and inspires me with the aim of helping you realize your creative vision.
What We Will Do
We will visit and photograph from a variety of scenic locations along the rim of the Grand Canyon. I will cover a wide-variety of techniques I use to ensure that I get sharp and well-exposed images, focus and depth-of-field control, using filters, planning a photo session to get the most out of your limited time. In addition to technique, we will also cover building different types of compositions including wide-angle grand scenics, telephoto landscapes, and intimate scenes. If the weather permits, we will also photograph the dark night sky above the Grand Canyon.
Workshops and photo tours are available on the South Rim year-round and on the North Rim from mid-May to mid-October.
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.
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.
Friends and Family
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! One friend or family member may tag along with each paid participant (‘participant’ is defined as someone who will potentially be using a tripod and has paid the workshop fee). Thefriend or family member is welcome and encouraged to bring a camera, but they may not bring or use a tripod.
The price for a private workshop or photo tour fluctuates with the season. Please contact Sally or I for current pricing.

“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.”
