January 22-26, 2018 with Denise Ippolito ~ 5 Full Days $1699.00Limit 10 participants/ FULL WAIT
Join me for what will be 5 incredible days of photography at Death Valley National Park in California. The scenery can be almost unbelievable at first. As we will unfold the park’s inner beauty we will at the same time be in awe of it’s rugged exterior. So many great photographers have walked through this grand scape to develop their own artistic vision. Why not develop your own personal style a bit more as you explore this diverse land with me. Let me gently guide you as you compose these majestic vistas and intimate abstracts. This workshop is open to 10 participants. I will have a driver that will assist me with logistics so that I can focus on the group’s needs.
Death Valley has been referred to as the “land of extremes”. It has bragging rights for being the driest climate and also for having the lowest elevation in North America. It also holds the title for the hottest temperature ever recorded on earth – 134 degrees Fahrenheit. With all of these extremes comes some pretty cool looking landscapes like the sand dunes, playas, salt flats and mountains. Throw in some shadows, curves, angles, lines–what more could a photographer want! January is the perfect time to relax and stay cool during our journey.
Highlights include: 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.
