Death Valley Travel Photography Workshop

Immerse yourself in the surreal sights and light of Death Valley with photography – February 2023

Total fee due:  December 15

Workshop Dates:
* February 9-13

Death Valley National Park, the largest national park south of Alaska, is known for its beauty and extremes. Within its boundaries lies both the lowest elevation on the continent and a peak rising just above 11,000 feet. Death Valley’s empty basins, endless vistas, towering sand dunes, and lush oases have inspired artists for centuries.

In our Death Valley Desert Photography Workshop, you will have infinite opportunities for spectacular outdoor photography and desert photography.

Michael E. Gordon, an internationally acclaimed landscape photographer, will be your instructor for our desert photography workshop. Michael has been discovering, hiking, and photographing Death Valley for 25 years, and his love of the desert landscape is infectious!

Michael has been leading Death Valley photography tours for a long time and knows the best locations for photographing Death Valley attractions and the unique desert lighting. He has chosen specific locations for our February workshop based on time of year and local weather patterns.

Michael is an engaging, hands-on instructor that will work individually as well as with the group on composition, exposure, equipment choices and technical matters. This desert photography workshop is packed with activity! The group will be actively working from sunrise to sunset, chasing the desert light in amazing locations.

We will cover a lot of ground in this workshop with each day including at least two locations. Dinners will be spent as a group discussing the day’s events and photographic solutions. The final evening of the workshop will include a critique session of all the students’ work led by Michael.
