Landscape Photography Paradise in Southwest Utah

Southwest Utah is a paradise for landscape photography with dynamic light and a wild contrast in the landscape.  10,000 ft plateaus, mountains and desert valleys fill this landscape where red rocks meet the mountains.  Every season brings a new beauty to this landscape and there’s never a dull moment for landscape photography here.

Our Southwest Utah Photo Tour will lead you through these stunning landscapes and escape the crowds of Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks.  You’ll discover so much hidden beauty beyond the Parks and see why I chose to call this place home.

Explore Utah in Every Season

Southern Utah is a landscape of contrasts and each season highlights this contrast.  Autumn brings colors to the red desert, Summer brings rain, Spring brings flowers and Winter can bring snow.  Each season also brings a new quality of light which only adds to the contrasts here.

During the 3 days, we’ll explore areas near 10,000 ft above sea level and areas to 2000 ft.  We’ll explore deep river canyons, slot canyons, waterfalls, forests, grand vistas and amazing light.  During each season we’ll also take advantage of the season’s highlight such as snow, flowers, storms or fall color.  The 3 days will be filled with so much variety as we explore one of the most beautiful areas of Utah.
