What to Expect
The Colorado Plateau is one of the most beautiful and photogenic regions in the United States. Its splendor is simply indescribable. That's why we're bringing our cameras along! This incredible three day landscape photography workshop will start off in Page Arizona and finish at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. While both rims of the Grand Canyon are absolutely spectacular the south rim is overcrowded with tourists in the summer month. In contrast, the North Rim of the Grand Canyon is one of the quietest National Parks in the country! It's hard to describe how peaceful the north rim is compared to south.
While the South Rim is larger with more panoramic vistas, one could argue that the North Rim is compositionally more interesting. It as also well suited for astrophotography if the sky clears at night. This workshop includes an incredible amount of photographic opportunities including the world famous slot canyons of Antelope X and the iconic Horseshoe Bend which has produced some of my best selling prints.
There are no hidden fees with this workshop. All entry fees, tours and accommodations are included in the workshop price.

What's Not Included
Transportation, but carpooling is encouraged
The average highs at the north rim are in the upper 70's to mid 80's in the day with night time lows in the upper 40's. July is the heart of the monsoon season at the Grand Canyon which can make for dramatic photographs. The monsoons are usually short lived but they can drop a lot of rain at one time so it's important to be prepared with rain gear for yourself and your camera.
