Zion and Bryce Fall Color Field Workshop

Once the calendar turns to November it doesn't mean it's time to yearn for next October to once again shoot some beautiful fall color...You just have to travel a bit! Fall color is so darn short-lived! Just about the time you're hitting your groove and have things figured out...it's over and done for another year. It seems I'm always wishing for that one more weekend of good autumn shooting...Well here's another chance: The leaves will all be long gone here in the midwest but the fall color spectacular will be at or near peak in southern Utah! This is one of my favorite times to visit Zion and Bryce National Parks. The weather has turned cool, the crowds are gone and the scenery is breathtaking! Zion and Bryce National Parks are simply amazing! There's just something special about red rock...Add some fall color, perhaps a dusting of snow...We'll have three full days to visually explore these national treasures. We will all leave with great photos! This is a Field Workshop. Obviously three days is nowhere near enough time to explore these two gems in the national park system thoroughly. But I have been to both of these parks numerous times and will guide you to some of the most photogenic spots in each. Throughout the three days we will discuss proper field photography techniques as well as composition and design considerations. We will have "classroom" sessions each day of the workshop. Prior to the workshop I will discuss with each attendee an equipment list and a shooting plan for the weekend...I will aim to stretch YOUR creative boundries on this trip! There will not be any lengthy or difficult hikes on this trip although one should be prepared to do some moderate walks of up to a mile or so. Dress in layers and plan to travel light. We will be based in Kanab, Utah for this workshop.

• Plan to fly into Las Vegas, Nevada on October 31st and fly out of Vegas on November 4th.

• We can carpool to and from Vegas as well as for the weekend.

• Lodging and Transportation Costs are NOT included in the MPA Event Price. Lodging details will be forwarded to all attendees. Lodging rates are approximately $80 / night.

The cost of this Photo Adventure is $299/MPA Members $449/All Others

    looks like that leaves myself, Paul, John, and Debbie to arrange a ride to Kanab. Can we connect about this and rent one car that will accommodate us all? [masked]

      Tom C & Debbie, let's take this conversation offline. I am also on the DL flight so it will be easy to meetup for the Meetup. My email is racefoto @ yahoo.com so we can make plans.

    I won't be able to make it to this Meetup, but wanted to wish you all a great time. I've been to both of these places and it ranks among the finest photographic experiences of my life. pictures of Bryce still adorn my family room.

    If you haven't signed up and are thinking about it, I strongly encourage you to go. It is pretty breathtaking!

    Michael and I are renting our own car. No carpool as we are extending our stay. Please do not count us in the car rental procedure. We probably will meet you all at the hotel on Thursday night.

  • Thomas N.

    So we have a couple a weeks before this meetup, Jack has the rooms reserved for us.
    Does everyone have there flights and rental cars arranged?
    Are you sharing rental cars and rooms?
    I will be posting updates as the date gets closer.
    Thanx

      Tom I'm a little confused by your wording here. I booked a room at the Days Inn on my own outside of the reservation list (got a better deal). As far as transportation I had an Email from Jack back in august, stating that the plan was to meet up at the airport before noon and carpool to lunch and then on to Kanab. Therefore I was assuming I would be riding in a van or other group vehical and did not plan to rent a car. When I talked to Jack about getting back on Monday to fly home he said there would be someone shuttling us back in the morning. I'm also wondering about actual connections in a large airport, i do have Jacks phone number but no one elses. my number is[masked]

      October 21, 2013

    • Thomas N.

      Tom,no problem on the hotel as far as transportation i think we are using rental cars though a 12 person van would be the best choice.Jack and I are leaving on the 30th and driving up.I dont know if we are driving back to meet everyone in vegas or staying in Kanab. Thats why im posting now so we have a set game plan and all on the same page..my number is[masked]

      I tried that out in Tetons last week Ev and while the barry-cade didn't get in my way, the Ranger was not as kind.

    see my confidence paid off..lol (maybe a bit of faith)

    Great news! Apparently Utah is opening their National Parks regardless of what Washington does, or doesn't do. http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/11/us/utah-parks-reopen/ The state made a deal to reopen Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Zion national parks. The other three locations that will be opened are Natural Bridges and Cedar Breaks national monuments, as well as Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.

    1 · October 11, 2013

    • Tom C.

      that's great news for our planned trip, however it is only scheduled for 10 days at present. At least we are moving in the right direction. This trip is very important to me as it has always been on my bucket list, and to think that we will spend extensive time exploring and not just a drive by - pull off - shoot photo - and move on. I'm geeked

      October 11, 2013

    • Mark P.

      That's great news John, I had heard that the state was going to attempt this as they attribute some 400K per day lost to businesses local to Bryce and Zion and fall is their peak season.

      October 11, 2013

  • Thomas N.

    options for photography if parks are closed

    October 10, 2013

  • Thomas N.

    I have confidence that the parks will be open by the time we leave. Also Jack and I are leaving a few days earlier to scout out locations, so I'm sure we will have some great images and instruction either way.

    1 · October 9, 2013

    • Mark P.

      Well I am glad to see you have confidence Thomas and I sure do hope that this mess is resolved earlier than later, I am sure there is plenty to shoot outside the parks as well, have a great time all I know you will.

      October 10, 2013

  • Mark P.

    Sure hope our idiot government is back to work and the parks are open, I heard this morning that there was a group of visitors to the grand canyon who went around the barricades and are now fined and must appear in court. Funny how Barrack and barricade are starting to look the same........ I heard last night that the Zion area is losing over $400K a day in lost tourist revenue and the state wants to take over control

    • Thomas N.

      Im one of the instructors on this meet up and I dont see a problem bringing your wife if she is good with the early morning and late nights..

      August 6, 2013

    • Tom C.

      thanks Paul and Thomas, I have talked it over with my wife and she feels it might be a little too much for her, so i'll just take her on a seperate trip in the future.

      August 6, 2013

  • Tom C.

    will the group be assisting us in flight arrangments, that is choosing the flight that brings us all together in Vegas at the same time?

    July 30, 2013

    • Tom C.

      Tom, i guess my question is still, should I be working on purchasing a flight or will there be one recommended that puts us all together?

      July 31, 2013

    • Thomas N.

      August 2, 2013
