SEE THE GRAND CANYON THRU THE LENS OF ADAM SCHALLAU
A private Grand Canyon photo workshop with Adam is all about you as it is custom tailored to your schedule, your photographic needs, and your skill level. It includes Adam sharing his photographic expertise as your photograph from some of his favorite locations in the park.
I am committed to sharing with you what motivates and inspires me with the aim of helping you realize your creative vision. ~ Adam Schallau
WHAT WE DO ON A WORKSHOP
We will visit and photograph from a variety of scenic locations along the rim of the Grand Canyon. Along the way Adam will cover the techniques he uses to get sharp and well-exposed images, how he manages focus and depth-of-field control, using filters, and planning a photo session to get the most out of your limited time.
In addition to technique, Adam will also share with you his approach to creating a variety of compositions including wide-angle grand scenics, working with foreground anchors, leading lines, s-curves, layered landscapes, and intimate scenes. If the weather permits, we will also photograph the dark night sky above the Grand Canyon. You will be able to take what you learn here with Adam and apply to any location or subject.
WHAT MAKES THESE WORKSHOPS SPECIAL?
This is simple, you make these workshops special! Because it’s about what you will experience at the canyon, what you will learn, and what you will create. Adam looks forward to working with you.
FRIENDS AND FAMILY
Let us know if you’re traveling with family or friends as we can create an experience that is just as fun and informative for them too! One friend or family member may tag along with each paid participant (‘participant’ is defined as someone who will potentially be using a tripod and has paid the workshop fee). The friend or family member is welcome and encouraged to bring a camera!
