Education will be provided throughout the workshop and the instructor will spend one-on-one time with each participant (the workshop is limited to 8 people).

Northern Utah and the Wasatch Front quite possibly could be the crown jewel of the Rocky Mountains. The Wasatch Back features miles of undeveloped mountain canyons and valleys, towering granite and awe inspiring views. During this workshop, you will want to bring a variety of lenses, from wide-angle to super-telephoto.

The Wasatch Mountains

While the Wasatch Mountains offer outstanding photographic opportunities throughout the year, the arrival of fall brings a special magic to the area. Deep, rich golds, explosive reds and oranges, crisp blue skies, frosty mornings, and perhaps a dusting of snow transform these incredible locations into something truly spectacular.

Due to changes in weather and the amount of precipitation, the foliage colors and patterns in the Wasatch Mountains can drastically change year to year, giving truly unique photographic opportunities for those who like visiting Utah every fall.

All of our Workshops are small in size

Our workshops were designed for small groups, usually no more than 8 persons. With smaller groups there is much less pressure, more laid back, easier to ask questions and fun. Smaller groups allow for a more intimate setting and more one on one attention.

We work thru very separate exercises, ISO, Shutter, and Aperture settings. You're using your camera, you're pressing the buttons on your camera and your capturing photos with your camera. By using your camera you start to learn menus, what some of the buttons do and most important how ISO, Shutter and Aperture affect your photos. It's all about YOU!
