A photography experience is travel completely designed around photography. Unlike workshops, photo tours are organized considering the best locations and photography opportunities of each destination.
This customization means more flexibility in the schedule and the itinerary according to the light and photography conditions.
Photo experiences are usually conducted in small groups and are led by photography experts who have a broad photographic experience and knowledge about the destination.
The main goal of a photo experience is visiting the most interesting locations from a photographic point of view during the best possible moments of light, having the instruction of a professional photographer.
A photography experience is aimed at photographing the best locations during the best moments of light under the guidance of a knowledgeable photographer, who leads the group according to the best photography opportunities and provides with location assistance.
A photography workshop is more hands-on and learning. During the workshop we focus more on a learning experience in the field learning your camera and which settings are needed
Generally speaking, the main difference between a Photography Experience and a Photography Workshop is the instruction during the event, since the main objective of a Photo Experience is visiting the best locations during the best moments of light whereas in a workshop there is more in-depth instruction.
With all that being said, the line between a Photo Experience and a Photo Workshop is blurred most of the time.
We are more than happy to help in anyway during any Experience or Workshop.
At Photography Workshops of Utah we don’t classify our tours simply as Photo Experiences or Photo Workshops. All of our Experiences and Workshops, are aimed at providing the most enriching experience to our participants, both from a photography and a personal point of view:
- We prepare our experiences in destinations we know and have deeply researched and photographed before.
- We customize our itinerary according to the most interesting locations or subjects to photograph.
- We always do our best to plan the perfect timing for each location according to the best moments of light, but remain flexible to make the most of each place according to the conditions.
- Our participants and their photography are the most important thing for us. We don’t give a couple of guidelines and leave the group to take their own photos. We provide you with assistance according to your level and needs, sharing our vision and our advice with you, but also leaving your own time for exploration and practice.
- The size of our groups is small, so we can deliver instruction to each participant.
Not at all.
Our Photo experiences are attended from casual hobbyists to seasoned pros.
The learning curve of each person is different, but we make sure that everyone can take something from our experiences; From getting started with photography to a more in-depth guidance about how to improve your vision or how to hone your in-field skills to the next level.
Everyone brings their own experience and vision to the table and you won’t only benefit from the instructor-participant experience but also from the general group knowledge.
Our advice is to wear always light and comfortable clothes.
ALL of our Experiences and Workshops are outdoors and constantly exposed to the elements.
A good reference to be comfortable is to dress in layers, especially during the winter months
Layered clothing consists of using many thin and warm layers instead of a few thick layers. This has two advantages: 1) A better insulation and 2) more comfortability since you can always strip off layers if you are walking or the temperature rises.
It depends on which event you are attending.
