Photo Workshop offered Daily - You pick the date

Join us near Zion National Park for our custom Greater Zion Photo Workshop.  This 1-Day Photography Workshop is a perfect way to explore and shoot in one of Utah’s most amazing landscapes!  Greater Zion is the area outside of Zion National Park towards St. George and Hurricane.  There is SO MUCH else to see here besides Zion.  I live here and know this area well.  Let’s go explore and create images in one of the most stunning landscapes in Utah!

This workshop is more than a tour of photogenic locations outside of Zion.  This is a perfect opportunity to create amazing images while learning new photography skills in the process. All photography skill levels are welcome, from beginner to advanced.  

The Details

1-Day Greater Zion Photo Workshop

Our 1-Day Greater Zion Photo Workshop is offered daily for all skill levels of photography.  Learn as you explore Greater Zion and create images with professional instruction every step of the way.

Our 1-Day Workshop is always more than simply getting to the “right place at the right time”.  We like to think of it as the best place at the appropriate time.  Come join us and see what we mean and put it into practice.

  • Minimal hiking  is required for many great locations in Greater Zion.
  • Hiking is customized for your abilities.
  • You must be able to carry and transport all of your own photography gear.  We’re able to help within reason.  If you need assistance, please arrange this with us prior to booking.
  • Greater Zion ranges from 2500-7500 feet above sea level.  Spring through Fall are hot and dry.  Stay hydrated, rest and know hiking/walking will be a little slower here.
  • December – February: Snow and rain are possible but mostly sunny and mild.  Often great for hiking and beautiful light!
  • March – mid May Near perfect weather with so many nice days.  It can snow in March but be near 100ºF in May.  This is one of the best times of the year.
  • Mid May – September: HOT.  Also the busiest time of year.  Monsoon storms and weather begin in July.  
  • October – November:  The other best time of year with perfect weather.  Fall colors go for nearly 2 months here depending on elevation.  
  • Personal Favorite Time: March or Late October.  Perfect weather, possible storms, great hiking and great light:)

Why Photograph Greater Zion?

Greater Zion is a landscape of layers, hidden gems and amazing desert scenery.  Zion National Park is often on the distant skyline to enhance the beauty.  You’ll find hidden arches, deep canyons, rivers and waterfalls just to name a few qualities.  What you won’t find is crowds.  We’ll visit some of our favorite locations and ensure you create stunning images during your time here.
