WINTER PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP AT THE GRAND CANYON ~ JANUARY 18TH TO 21ST, 2019
With the change of seasons comes a more peaceful and quiet time at the Grand Canyon. Winter brings a chance of snow and low-hanging ragged clouds. The days are shorter, and the park is relatively calm and quite making for a much more serene experience. This a fantastic time to photograph the Grand Canyon and to capture the dramatic vistas that only the Grand Canyon can offer.
The size of this workshop is being kept very small to ensure that everyone gets one-on-one instruction, and so that you will have plenty of space to capture the canyon without feeling crowded or like you’re missing out on the best spots. As always, Adam’s goal is to help you realize your creative potential, to have a great experience, and for you to return home with great photos!
This workshop includes single-occupancy lodging for three nights in comfortable rooms at Red Feather Lodge on the South Rim.
MEALS AND TRANSPORTATION
Meals are not included, but the workshop groups often have a great time dining together. Transportation and National Park entrance fees are not provided. We will caravan and/or carpool to our destinations as much as possible. Due to limited parking, you are encouraged to share rides with your fellow workshop participants.
For this workshop, it’s recommended that you fly into and out of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) as it is the nearest major airport to Grand Canyon National Park. It is approximately a 4-hour drive from PHX to our lodge on the South Rim in the town of Tusayan, Arizona. An alternative is to fly into Flagstaff Pulliam Airport (FLG), conveniently located only 90 minutes from Grand Canyon National Park.
The rim of the canyon can be very cold during the winter months, and temperatures can go below freezing as early as September and as late as May. The high temperature can reach into the 60s (16-20°c) on warmer days. Winter also brings the chance of snow with the South Rim averaging about 60″ of snowfall annually. It’s best to come prepared for cold weather and to dress in layers. We will send an email a few days before the workshop with a weather forecast so you will have a better idea as to what the temperatures will be like.
ABOUT THE SCHEDULE
Specific details will be provided upon completion of your registration. The itinerary will be set just prior to the beginning of the workshop and will be fluid so that we can adapt to changes in weather conditions, thus allowing us to capture the best moments. Plan on early mornings and late evenings as we will be starting well before sunrise and shooting until after sunset. The schedule will allow for downtime during our mid-day rest periods.
