Winter in the Red Rocks Photography Workshop.

Winter Photography in Arches & Canyonlands National Parks
Guest Instructor, Tom Till
Dec 6-12, 2009

Treat yourself to an early Christmas present! Join world-renowned landscape photographer, Tom Till, and Moab Photo Tours owner, Jon Fuller, in this unique opportunity to learn to photograph the natural landscape of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and the surrounding area in winter.

Most people don’t realize that winter light is the best photographic light around Moab, and since it’s the ‘off-season’, you don’t have to fight the crowds for tripod space at iconic photo spots! While we can’t guarantee snow, the possibility of snow on the red rock formations in the parks can offer some beautiful and unique photographic opportunities. Even without snow, the winter light is excellent and can afford the opportunity to make some beautiful landscape images. And, the best thing about winter landscape photography is that the sun comes up after breakfast, and goes down before dinner! No more missing meals while waiting for that prime landscape light like in the summertime!

Both Tom Till and Jon Fuller are long-time Moab residents, and there are no photography guides who know the Moab area better. We’ll spend 5 days shooting the best landscapes Moab has to offer. In addition to the iconic photographic locations in the area, you’ll get to photograph some of Tom’s and Jon’s favorite landscape spots, unknown to most of the photo guides who bring workshops to Moab.

During the mid-day hours, we will have photo critiques and technical discussions to improve your landscape photography skills. We will also discuss digital work flow and post-processing techniques in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, and fine art printing. Tom and Jon are both very patient, friendly instructors, and everything will be done in a very non-critical environment. In addition to helping you learn to be a better photographer, we want you to have fun while doing it. If it isn’t fun, you aren’t doing it right!

Our base of operations for this workshop will be the Gonzo Inn, Moab’s premier lodging, conveniently located just off Main Street in downtown Moab. Workshop fees are based on single occupancy, since all rooms have a single king bed. Suites (some with fireplaces!) are available at additional cost. A discount is available for couples sharing a room.

Arrival day is Sunday, 6 December and we will have an orientation get-together that evening. We will shoot both sunrises and sunsets Monday through Friday. Friday night we will have a group dinner at one of Moab’s finest restaurants to end the workshop, included in the workshop fee. Lodging is included in the Workshop fee for Sunday through Friday nights, with departure on Saturday, 12 December.

Cost of this workshop is $1695.00 and includes 6 nights lodging (single occupancy), 5 days of photography, instruction, and the dinner at the end of the workshop. We will be carpooling for transportation to and from the shooting locations. Workshop fees do not include transportation to, and from, Moab from your home, meals (other than specified), alcohol, or incidentals.

To ensure personal attention to each workshop participant, workshop size is limited to 10 participants. To reserve your place in this unique photography workshop, email
