with award winning photographer Craig Varjabedian Go on the road with us to photograph the iconic landscapes of the American West . . . "You can say the real star of my Westerns has always been the land" - Popularly attributed to John Ford, movie director Aeons of erosion by wind and water have created intricate and sensuous rock formations and patterns in them. The ever changing patterns of light and shadow dance through twisted, secret places; the mesmerizing light provides opportunities to take exhilarating photographs of the American Southwest's iconic landscapes of Monument Valley, Canyon de Chelly and the Antelope Slot Canyons. We will be working with Navajo guides at these magnificent locations to explore areas of the canyons normally off-limits. Our guides will share their knowledge of the best times of day to capture magical, mythical images of these ancient landscapes and rock formations. This is a shooting intensive workshop and tour with award-winning photographer Craig Varjabedian and assistant Tye Hardison. They will provide hands-on one-on-one guidance in the field if requested. Subjects that participants will have the opportunity to photograph could include: the various spectacular red rock formations in and around the Slot Canyons, shafts of light coming through the rocks, the desert landscapes of Monument Valley and Canyon de Chelly, such as the Mittens, Canyon del Muerte, Teardrop, Mystery Valley, John Ford Point, ancient petroglyphs, Totem Pole and the overlook of the Colorado River, sunrises and sunsets. This workshop includes ground transportation during the workshop. Join us for a seven day adventure workshop as we explore iconic locations and show you how to capture them with your camera. You will have ample time to capture stunning images at each location!
