The exact itinerary will be kept flexible to account for the weather and road conditions. We will optimize our time for the best possible photography. The itinerary below is just an example of what you can expect. If we shoot the night skies, we will likely skip sunrise the following morning.
Our photography workshop schedul is arranged very tight. In addition to shooting sunrises and sunsets, there are often scenic spots to shoot in between if we do not have a long drive to our next destination. Due to the weather conditions, we cannot go out to shoot, and then we will have post-processing inspiration, instruction seminar or photo critique.
Day 1: We will pick you up at Las Vegas International Airport no later than 4pm and then check in our hotel. In the evening, we will have an orientation. We will cover many techniques you will be using during the workshop and discuss the itinerary in detail.
Day 2 - 5: After breakfast, we will drive into Death Valley National Park. In 3 days, we will shoot in Badwater Basin (salt flats), Zabriskie Point, Mesquite Dunes, Dante's View, Twenty Mule Team Canyon, Panamint Valley mud flats, and much more.
*all subject to change due to local conditions and timing.
Day 5: After sunset shooting in Death Valley National Park, we will drive back Las Vegas.
Day 6: After breakfast, We will have a session of photo critique. You may pick one of your photo for our inspiration of post-processing for you. afterwards, we will drive you to Las Vegas International Airport.
