Winter Moon at Grand Canyon
February 3rd to 6th, 2023
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 ensure 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, my goal is to help you realize your creative potential, to have a great experience, and for you to return home with great photos!
Day 1: Meet and greet at 3:00 pm at Red Feather Lodge in Tusayan, Arizona. We will then travel into the park for our first sunset session from a location on the Hermit Road near Maricopa Point. Topics covered during this first session include setting up your camera for landscape photography and Adam's technical workflow.
Day 2: Sunrise session from Mohave Point to capture the full moon as it sets over the western canyon. The morning session will begin with wide-angel grand scenic compositions and then will transition to telephoto compositions. After the morning session, we will drive back to Tusayan to get breakfast followed by a mid-day break.
The afternoon session will cover working with backlit scenes. We will finish up by photographing the moon as it rises near the Watchtower just after sunset.
Day 3: The sunrise session will be from Desert View to capture the canyon with the moon in the western sky.
The afternoon session will cover photographing the canyon with the intent to create black & white photos. We will finish up by photographing sunset near Pima Point.
Day 4: The final sunrise shoot will be at Yaki Point followed by breakfast at El Tovar.
