3rd Annual WWP Fall Photo Workshop (2017)




It’s that time of year again, Fall is right around the corner and the peaks and valley of the Wasatch Front in Utah are about to present their very best color. For anyone who enjoys nature photography, it is the best time of the year to get outside and create images and memories. For me, its about sharing what I know about my local shooting locations and photography.



One of the workshop locations. Join us!

Here’s the nitty gritty:



Meet-up will be at the Park-and-Ride at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon. We will shoot various locations on the East side of the Wasatch Mountains (Park City/Heber side). We’ll follow the light at some of the best locations beginning at sunrise and ending sometime in the early afternoon in American Fork Canyon. We’ll start near the top of BCC, work our way down through Midway, onto the Alpine Loop where we’ll shoot one a few locations depending on the light conditions.



Saturday, October 7. We’ll plan on meeting at the Park and Ride at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon around 6am. Plan on being back to vehicles sometime early afternoon.


Why? I have spent years shooting northern Utah during Autumn and along the way have gained knowledge of some beautiful places to be and the best times for the best light to be there. Autumn in Northern Utah is spectacular as the Aspen, Oak, and Maple present their brightest red and golden hues of the season. Allow me to share what I’ve learned about photography as I share these locations. You will get first hand instruction from me while we shoot sunrise, in addition, we will have a technical learning session as we eat lunch and enjoy the outdoors. During the lunch/classroom session I will teach on various nature photography related subject matter; including depth of field, composition, lighting, and technical camera details, with a Q&A session at the end.  We’ll then return to the vehicles, ideally w memory cards full of great images!



Anyone.  Most of the subject matter will be directed to beginner to intermediate photographer’s, however anyone with a passion for photography can benefit from my knowledge of the area and passion for outdoor photography! This is my first ever workshop I’ll be hosting, I can promise it will be a relaxed and fun atmosphere spent amongst like minded folks who love the outdoors and nature photography.


How much?

$199 per student. This will include transportation throughout the day, and lunch will be provided. Also, 1-1 instruction from myself during our sunrise session and all the Q&A you can handle. A $99 deposit (non-refundable) will be required to reserve a spot.


What do I need?

All attendees will need a basic DSLR camera (preferably with a wide angle lens). Tripods are mandatory. If you have questions at all here, please use the contact link below to ask, I’ll be happy to clarify!

We’ll be shooting at sunrise which will be chilly in early October at elevation, so warm clothes will be a must to stay comfortable. A few layers to work through the temperatures throughout the day will be helpful as the temperatures will likely vary greatly from the cold frosty morning above, to the warmer afternoon in the valleys.

A passion for photography and a good attitude. (<also mandatory ;-) )


Everything else?

I’m going to need a minimum attendance of 2 students to host the day, so the group size will be minimum of 2, maximum of 6.

A few closing thoughts from me here.  I’m confident I have valuable information in both technical knowledge, as well as local spots to best capture light and the Autumn experience. If you have any questions at all, please ask using the contact link below. I am energized and focused on providing a day of photography that will challenge and improve the skills of those who attend!


If you want to attend, please reserve your spot w an initial $99 deposit, w/ the remaining $100 to be paid on site day of workshop. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you there!
