Photography Workshops Designed for You
I specialize in creating custom workshops for those that want to get the most out of their limited time at the Grand Canyon. My private workshops are all about you as I custom tailor the experience to your schedule, photographic needs, and skill level. I have worked with everyone from beginner photographers to those with years of experience.
I offer workshops ranging in length from a half-day trip to multi-day intensive workshop experiences. I'm available for workshops year-round on the South Rim and seasonally on the North Rim from mid-May to mid-October.
What Will We Do On the Workshop?
My private Grand Canyon photo workshops give you the opportunity to work alongside me as I share my approach to making fine art landscape photographs. I'll demonstrate making images with strong foregrounds, layering elements of the landscape, and how to work with challenging lighting conditions. You will be able to take what you learn here with me and apply it to any location or subject.
Night Sky Photography
Photographing the Grand Canyon or surrounding terrain under a night sky can be a real treat. Grand Canyon is certified as an International Dark Sky Park. Depending on the moon phase, we may either photograph the stars above the canyon or photograph the canyon under the moonlight. This session is typically limited to 1-hour of shooting, beginning approximately an hour after sunset. I do not charge an additional fee for the night photography session. I consider it a bonus session if the weather cooperates.
What Viewpoints Will We Photograph From?
The South Rim of the Grand Canyon has nearly 20 named viewpoints, and the North Rim has seven designated viewpoints or overlooks. In addition to the designated viewpoints, both rims have many unnamed and unknown overlooks.
Many of these locations can be an excellent spot to photograph from, but the challenge is knowing the best places for the given light and weather conditions. For this reason, I typically wait to select locations until the day of your workshop so that we may adapt to changes in light and weather to put you in the best spot possible.
Friends and Family
Let me know if you're traveling with family or friends, and I can create an experience that is just as fun and informative for them too! A friend or family member is welcome to tag along with each paid participant.
I've been photographing the Grand Canyon since 2008. In 2009 I was one of three people out of 303 applicants selected to be an Artist-in-Residence that year for Grand Canyon National Park. Since then, I have spent, on average, 70 days a year photographing the canyon, leading workshops, volunteering with youth programs, and giving presentations about the canyon. My photos of Grand Canyon have been published by National Geographic, Arizona Highways magazine, the National Park Service, Grand Canyon Conservancy, and many others.
Grand Canyon is my artistic home and the place I am most passionate about. I look forward to sharing it with you.
