Location: Joshua Tree National Park Photography Workshop Tour 

We will meet in the famous resort town of Palm Springs. There is great birding, verdant creeks and desert wildflowers to be had in this Mojave Desert city. I spent over a month there last year and shot many fantastic images. We will also visit nearby Anza Borrego State Park which hopefully is blooming with wildflowers and take in the stunning badlands vista at Fonts Point.

Next, we will drive over the small town of 29 Palms which sits right outside of wonderful Joshua Tree National Park. Hopefully, the wildflowers will be blooming. A great opportunity for us to capture unique night time images with joshua tree silhouettes. I will teach you my method for even light painting on the sandstone formations. Cool, stuff. Be prepared to hike at least 3 miles round trip, it will be worth it. 


EQUIPMENT SUGGESTIONS: A sturdy tripod is a necessity for good landscapes. Participants should have a working knowledge of their equipment (know which button does what!) before the workshop. I suggest a SLR camera with a wide-angle lens (24-105mm is great for landscapes. If birding or wildlife are more your interest then I would suggest bring a lens like in the 100-500mm range, or more. We have also had some point and shoot shooters attend so don’t feel you have buy that latest and greatest. There’s a lot to learn just by seeing.
