“Guardsman Pass Tour” we will start at the mouth of Big Cottonwood canyon, travel over Guardsman Pass to the Midway side. Photograph around Wasatch State Park, Guardsman Pass and Silver Lake areas (passenger car accessible).

We are teaching two Fall Color nature photography workshops at Guardsman Pass / Wasatch State Park. October is a magical time in Northern Utah. Autumn is valiantly trying to hold on, but by late October, gradually loses out to “Old Man Winter.” It is a fabulous time to enjoy Guardsman Pass and the Wasatch Back Mountain areas!

Our fall color nature photography field workshops teach you how to use high-quality outdoor photography techniques to shoot spectacular images. Subjects you will photograph during the 4 hours will include patterns of colorful leaves hanging from trees, floating in quiet ponds, and carpeting the forest floor. Beautiful backlit individual leaves, golden aspen leaves littered with brilliant red maple leaves, waterfalls encircled by autumn foliage, colorful rocks along Wasatch State Park and Big Cottonwood Cyn will keep your camera busy. With a bit of luck, we may have the opportunity to photograph gorgeous frosted autumn leaves. Perhaps a light snowfall may provide the chance to photograph autumn leaves amid the snow. When the evening is calm and clear, our groups are always at a spectacular spot before sunset to photograph a riot of autumn color and white aspen trees perfectly lit.  Over the decades, we have discovered many special places to share with you.


Dates are now being posted – Weekend dates go fast. Check Calendar for dates, locations and times.


This is a photographic tour, not our usual workshop, as such we will not be holding formal camera operations. Instead we are discussing and demonstrating techniques on location every session as needed or requested. Weather permitting, we will shoot as long as weather and light allow: photographing and learning in a relaxed fun atmosphere. I will be with you in the field at each location, instructing as needed in each situation. There will be plenty of one of one interaction with instructor in the field.
PLEASE BRING COLD WEATHER GEAR: HATS, JACKETS, GLOVES ETC…. ONCE THE SUN GOES DOWN IT WILL GET COOL VERY QUICKLY!
Please note: All Fall Trees Tours will be a total of 4 hrs with travel times, please plan accordingly. 

Items to Bring

Although it does not matter what equipment you have, you will get the most out of your camera if it has manual settings and the ability to use timers and/or clickers

  • Obviously, bring your wide-angle lenses. 
  • Bring telephotos as well if you have them; you’ll use them more than you think.
  • Best tripod you can muster w/ extra clamp plates. You’ll be very disappointed if you lose your one and only tripod clamp plate… (This has happened many times)
  • Polarizing Filter (not necessary, but helpful)
  • Extra memory cards and spare camera batteries and charger…(we can charge batteries on the road if needed)
  • Bring your camera’s owner manual; this will to help solve problems with settings.
  • Bring several lens cloths and cleaning liquid; I will have liquid, but bring your own cloths, if possible please.

 

  • ***Watch the weather as your scheduled day gets close – ITS VERY RARE we will cancel a workshop due to weather!- Be weather prepared. Rain and cold weather gear, both for your equipment and for you.  Winter shooting could involve standing out in the rain or snow. Water-proof hiking boots would be very useful.
