  We will drive approximately 20 miles on unpaved roads and hike for about 1.5 - 2 miles with our photo and camping gear and to our sunset / camping / sunrise site. All participants need to take 2 meals, snacks and at least a gallon of water.

April 21st, Saturday: For the first half of the day will explore and shoot the Ah-Shi-Sle-Pah Wilderness Study Area. In the afternoon we will relocate our camping to the Valley of Dreams and will photograph some of the best locations in the wilderness. The total length of the hike can be about 4-6 miles. All participants need to take 2 meals, snacks and at least a gallon of water.

April 24th, Tuesday: We will have a 1.5 - 2 hour sunrise field session at the Bisti Wilderness and after that we will break up our camp and our workshop will be over.

Itinerary

I will take into consideration weather conditions, safety concerns, as well as our participants' personal goals, and I will make decisions to put everybody in the best position possible to create compelling images. For the duration of the workshop, we will be out in the field each day, photographing before dawn, and late into the evening, breaking late night. What we do in between depends upon the weather. If conditions are conducive to making images throughout the day, we will most likely do so. If they are not, we will hold informal theory sessions, going over basic and advanced digital workflow topics (as mentioned above.) We will break for meals, and we will also be certain to plan for a few hours each day to nap, relax, and backup images as needed.
