ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
After a beautiful drive 1hour 45min drive from Las Vegas, you will find yourself in one of my favorite places in the US, Death Valley. Death Valley is a recognized International Dark Sky Park located in the remote area of eastern California about 100 miles west of Las Vegas, NV. We will enjoy 5 days and 4 nights with the milky way, and thousands upon thousands of stars overhead, alien like landscapes all around us, and you will have one dramatic portfolio of Death Valley at the end. You will learn when and where to find the milky way during each month of the year, shoot from the most amazing locations at night and during the sweet light with in-depth discussions on composition, light painting, post processing your images, and much more. I find that time, and flexibility are the most important things out in the field, 24 hours can make a huge difference in weather, and in light so there is a chance we could revisit some locations chasing the best light and photographic potential. 2024 will mark my 10 year anniversary of conducting workshops in Death Valley, so you know I will have some surprises in store for this group!
There are so many dramatic locations to photograph at night and during the day, we will certainly take full advantage of as many as we can while we are here. We will also set out to capture dramatic sunsets, sunrises, sand dunes, and all of the other unique landscape that the park has to offer including the elusive mudcracks! This is one adventure you do not want to miss out on!
WHAT'S INCLUDED :
REFLECTIONS OF HEAVENDeath Valley National Park, CA
Death Valley is the driest place in the US, but winter months bring some of the only rain of the year. Conditions are usually always clear and warm during the day and comfortable at night. It's perfect!
You have a few options for sleeping arrangements in Death Valley. Furnace Creek Ranch in Furnace Creek, and a few rooms in Stovepipe wells for you to enjoy. If you wish to camp, there are plenty of campsites at Furnace Creek and some rustic sites at Stovepipe wells. I would prefer Furnace Creek Campground around $22/night. Please make your reservations well in advance.
