Moab is synonymous with images of Delicate Arch, Mesa Arch and Dead Horse Point but for photographers willing and able to invest a little sweat equity, there are dozens of equally spectacular but virtually unknown vistas. From awe-inspiring canyon views to slot canyon waterfalls to hidden arches, there are myriad opportunities for adventurous photographers.
Join Bret for a full weekend of photography in the wild and beautiful backcountry surrounding Moab. We'll hike through desert creeks to slot canyon waterfalls, traverse gnarly four-wheel drive roads to dramatic canyon views and discover hidden arches while scrambling over sandstone boulders. Bret will shoot alongside you the whole time, sharing tips to help you create the best images possible at each location.
This is a physically demanding tour. Participants must be experienced hikers in excellent physical condition capable of carrying a pack full of gear up to 9 miles round-trip over challenging terrain. Some locations may require us to drive off-road for two or more hours. Self-sufficiency is mandatory as we will likely eat most meals in the field.
The Undiscovered Moab Photography Tour is an an amazing opportunity to experience the wild side of Moab, unseen by the average tourist but offering scenery every bit as exciting as the iconic locations in the national parks.
We'll get together on Friday, May 15 to meet one another and enjoy a nice dinner at one of Bret's favorite local restaurants in Moab. We'll discuss the tour and Bret will answer any last minute questions. This will be an early night as the next two days will be long ones. Expect to spend almost all day on Saturday and Sunday (May 16 & 17) in the field. The tour comes to an end on Sunday after sunset when Bret will drop off worn out participants at their hotels in Moab.

Rising over 7,000' from the surrounding sagebrush flats, with no foothills to interrupt the dramatic elevation gain, the Tetons are one of America's most photogenic mountain ranges. Crystal clear lakes fed by rushing streams dot the landscape, often capturing reflections of the jagged peaks that tower overhead. Bison roam freely amongst scenic pioneer barns while other wildlife, including elk and grizzly bears, are frequently spotted moving about in the park. This is an opportunity to join Bret and Jason for three full days of photography, camaraderie and fun in a mountain landscape like no other.
Our workshop begins on Thursday afternoon with a short meet and greet, followed by a group dinner at a local restaurant and finally, a sunset shoot in Grand Teton National Park. Over the next three days we'll photograph three sunrises and two more sunsets, during which Jason and Bret will work with each participant one-on-one to help you develop the skills necessary to create dynamic landscape photographs. Mid-day on Friday and Saturday we'll retire to a comfortable meeting room at a local hotel where Jason and Bret will share their digital darkroom workflows using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, as well as Nik Software plug-ins. We'll also use some of our classroom time doing group image critiques, which our participants consistently rate as one of their favorite activities during the workshop. Our workshop will end after a sunrise shoot on Sunday morning.
LODGING: We are in the process of negotiating discounted rates for our workshop participants at a hotel in downtown Jackson, Wyoming.
