Have you ever wondered how to frame your photos to capture the true beauty of nature? Do you want to shoot the night stars in all their glory? Do you love chasing the light to create the perfect image? These happen to be some of our favorite aspects of photography. Teaching YOU is our passion!
We’ve found that smaller groups are much more effective for teaching these skills. Having two instructors allows us to give endless personal attention. This ensures you receive plenty of one-on-one guidance to learn, grow your craft, and take unique images you’re proud to share.
This workshop is a photography workshop and so much more. You’ll learn how to take advantage of any condition and return home with amazing memories and professional quality images. It is also about connecting with like-minded creatives and convening with nature. You’ll experience the magic of the Alabama Hills, desert night skies, colorful sunsets – all while expanding your passion for photography.

limited to extremely small group size of 6
Beginner - advanced
Our goal is to leave you feeling confident, motivated, and passionate about your photography as well as new ideas and a fresh perspective. We teach simple and actionable techniques to scout out incredible compositions and the process of how to approach and execute unique photos in any environment. The classroom portion will teach you a combination of Lightroom and Photoshop workflows and tips so you can create powerful images. We decided to keep the group small and intimate, thus allowing us to focus and give you much more access to the instructors and one-on-one attention. Both instructors will always be with the group providing thoughts and real time critique as the light changes from sunset to enchanting night skies.
