“No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit." – Keller

The landscapes of Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park offer something truly unique and worthy of great photography. Incredible rock formations, natural arches, and patterns in the land define these National Parks.

To go here is to step back in time and witness the fingerprints of creation. It is to open a new doorway to yourself and the world around you using your camera as your guide. And that’s just during the day. These parks literally begin to shine when the sun goes down. At night, these rocky desert landscapes transform into a living planetarium. Something for the eye and the camera to behold.

This travel photo workshop will bring you into these raw yet beautiful places to capture some of the best sunrise, sunset, and night landscape photography found in the American Southwest.
