• Drifting Through Death Valley (10/09/20-10/15/20)

    Venture with Jess & Ingrid on October 9th-15th, 2020 into the drifting sands, volcanic rock arches, and textured mud playas of Death Valley and Alabama Hills. Together we will take you on a backcountry journey through these desolate but vibrant landscapes. During this photography workshop we will chase the Milky Way through California's deserts. Using advanced astrophotography techniques you will learn to capture stunning images of the night sky.  Back at base camp we take you into the digital darkroom to learn the processing of your images from start to finish. Your experiences in the dark skies of this vast desert will inspire you to create imagery that tells a story. ๐ŸŒŒ
