The Valley of Fire is a unique state park hidden away only 1-hour from Las Vegas. The rocky desert landscape burns a fiery red when lit by the sun. Over time, these red rock formations have created arches, slot canyons and colorful variations that provide endless photo opportunities. With focus on creativity and learning, this workshop will help you to refine your eye and help you create a strong portfolio of some of the southwest’s most interesting rock. Join us for this amazing photo workshop in the desert of Nevada.

Nothing says America like the beautiful farmland that spans the eastern Washington and western Idaho states. This region, called the Palouse, is a vista-filled landscape of wheat, crops, barns and beauty unlike anywhere in the U.S. Join us for this summer photo workshop as we capture the harvest of America’s beautiful western farmlands.
After our 2016 Palouse Harvest Workshop, we decided that we needed to quickly revisit the Palouse region. While this workshop is usually offered every other year, we noticed how many barns, granaries and other photographic icons are beginning to fall, and are being replaced with modern and efficient buildings. If you have ever considered photographing the Palouse, please consider going soon so that you may capture the charm, history and uniqueness of this area.

Summer is here, and a great time to get out and photograph. As you are capturing all that summer has to offer, I want to remind you of the impact that fundamental design principles can have on your photography.
Are you photographing a mountain or beach? Where you place your horizon line can help you to create depth and dimension in your photo and also help call attention to the hero in your photograph. Consider referencing design tools like the Golden Ratio, Rule of Thirds or the Fibonacci Spiral when setting up your composition.
