Death Valley is the HOTTEST, the DRIEST and the LOWEST place in the National Park System.  But do not mistake that to mean that is isn't one of the most BEAUTIFUL of the national parks.  Death Valley is frequently referred to as The Land of Extremes, but don't let the name fool you. From snow covered peaks in the distance to around 300 feet BELOW sea level, this place is a photographer's paradise.

 
Death Valley is the largest national park outside of Alaska, and we are going to explore a significant portion of it with our cameras.  Low valley floors, towering peaks, expansive vistas, colorful canyons and rugged salt flats will be part of your photographic experience in Death Valley.  This place offers a beauty so different from most of the national parks that it should undoubtedly find a special place on your bucket list. 


This workshop starts on Saturday afternoon at 3pm and ends by noon on Wednesday. 

 

***A Note on Non-Shooting Spouses/Signficiant Others -- Death Valley National Park requires a permit for us to able to lead a photo group in the park.  The permit limits the group size to 10 participants MAXIMUM. On this particular workshop we cannot allow non-participating spouses to join us during our shoots.  If you bring a spouse, that is fine, just understand they will have to be on their own when we shoot (if they choose not to pay for a spot on the workshop), and honestly, there is nothing else to do in Death Valley but explore on their own - and we suggest they NOT do that for safety reasons. 

 

**Cancellation Policy - Understand that on our longer trips where most people have to make extensive travel plans in order to join us, our cancellation policy is slightly more strict.  On this workshop, the last day for you to cancel for a refund is December 1, 2017.  If you cancel before this date you will receive your payment back minus a $50 transaction fee.  After this date, there will be no refunds unless we can fill your position with someone from the wait list. For this reason WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO PURCHASE TRIP INSURANCE TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR INVESTMENT.

For this Workshop:

 

Weather - The weather in Death Valley is generally dry and sunny, but not always. Although the park has a reputation for really hot weather, you will find that it can be very chilly in the morning and then quite warm in the afternoon.  Be sure to bring warm clothing for sunrise shoots as windy summits can be very cold at this time of day.  


Conditions - We will be in salt and sand - the whole time. Sand can be very damaging to camera gear.  Be sure to bring a plastic bag or something similar so you can set your bag down and it not be in the sand or on the corrosive salt beds.  


Accessories - We do not require that you purchase any specific equipment for this workshop.  With that said, however,we do recommend that you bring a circular polarizer for this workshop.
