Winter in the desert is completely magical! The contrasting white snow with red rocks will make for some of your favorite images from this region. On this workshop we will be photographing Zion and Bryce National Parks as well as their surrounding areas. We have decided to host this workshop during this date range as this time period has delivered great snow events in the past couple of years, and we’re hoping for more of the same. Of course, in the natural world we never know what we’ll get weather-wise, but this is a decent bet. In the event that we do not receive snow in Southern Utah during this date range, we will chase the very best shooting opportunities in the area.
Bryce Canyon has a very high probability of having fresh snow. Due to it’s high elevation, any weather that comes through, comes in the form of snow. Down in Zion at lower elevations, these storms are often rain in the main canyon, and snow at the higher elevations of the park.
ITINERARY: We will shoot from pre-sunrise through sunset every day of this workshop, taking breaks for food and driving.
This workshop requires an extremely flexible itinerary. The priority is to help people capture the very best images possible with the conditions that we’re getting. Because it is not possible to predict what areas will or will not have snow, we need to be flexible at all stages of the workshop. Arranging lodging prior to your trip should not happen. We will make reservations each day as we chase conditions. Lodging opportunities are wide open in Zion and Bryce during this date range, so there is no need to worry about availability.
