WHEN: Dates for MAY & JUNE
WHERE: Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument at Devil's Garden, Sunset Arch and Dance Hall Rock
WHO: Photographers of ALL skill levels welcome!

FITNESS LEVEL: The longest hike will be at Sunset Arch and that is a mostly flat 1-Mile hike. From the parking spot to the Arch we drop down 200 feet of elevation very gradually, but yes, we will climb that 200 feet on the way back. Still very easy for most!

Dance Hall Rock is little bit of a hike and a heck of a climb up sloped slickrock. Not dangerous but rolling an ankle can happen EASILY here if you are not careful.
In Escalante there are MANY great sites with just BRILLIANT Foreground options to frame the Milky Way over! We LOVE Escalante! 

The best part of Escalante is that you get an awesome variety of rock formations, natural arches and unique settings like a tree growing out of a hole in just a 40-mile stretch of road! 

This workshop is designed to give you an opportunity to do Milky Way Photography in three different locations with varied methods to the capture. 

We drive right up to the Devil's Garden location and walk mere yards to line up multiple options of foregrounds! Vertical rock formations, some a little distant like in the Night 4 image down below, some towering over us like in the Night 1 image above. Devil's Garden offers us great options to get as many as 4+ different compositions all in the same night! 

At Sunset Arch we hike the mile from the car down to the arch and make it in time for Sunset light on the arch to really look amazing and then wait for the Milky Way to show up after Astronomical Twilight is over. There is a nearby Moonrise Arch that we can try out too while at this location. 

Dance Hall Rock is little bit of a hike and a heck of a climb up sloped slickrock. Not dangerous but rolling an ankle can happen EASILY here if you are not careful. We arrive during the light and will set up at the rock all along the hole where the tree is coming out and capture a great single image shot.

At all of these locations you can do a panorama. The Milky Way is set up nicely for Panorama images during May so come with a great tripod for Panoramas! 

At night four we will choose as a group one of the locations we have been to try again or if weather and clouds ruined one of our spots we will return there that last night. 

If you have any questions, please get in touch by email at
