Don't let the name Death Valley fool you! This is one of the most diverse landscapes I've ever explored. At 5,262 square miles, (almost the size of Connecticut) this park is sure to have something for everyone. You'll be exploring beautiful sand dunes with a mountainous backdrop, Badwater Basin which is the lowest point in the continental US, salt flats, dry lake beds, multicolored mountain ranges (hues of gold, purple, pink and black) and so much more!

We'll be kicking off the trip on Thursday, May 14th with a catered dinner and orientation of what to expect for the weekend. After the orientation there will be an optional upgrade for a doors off helicopter flight and aerial photography lessons above the Las Vegas Strip! The workshop will officially begin at sunrise on Friday the 15th in Las Vegas then we will hit the road for a quick 2.5 hour drive to Death Valley where the real fun begins!

* An understanding of the photographic triangle is required for this workshop (ISO, Shutter Speed and Aperture).

We'll be covering on location portrait shoots in every situation imaginable in a manner that's easy to recreate for your own business practices. We'll be working with professional models and makeup artists for the best portfolio building session in the most amazing landscapes the southwest has to offer. You'll learn how to take beautiful portraits with natural and artificial light, how to incorporate studio strobes and modifiers outside, composite images, long exposures, light painting, business development and social media fundamentals.

As mentioned before Death Valley is a breathtaking landscape and we want to make sure you get the most out of your visit. Not only will we be covering portraits, we'll also be exploring everything Death Valley has to offer. You'll learn tips and tricks to photograph these beautiful landscapes including; Salt Flats, Multicolored Mountain Ranges, Sand Dunes and many of my secret locations. Weather permitting we'll also cover astro photography and long exposures to capture those starry skies and the Milky Way.
