The San Diego Photography Collective Message Board › "White Pocket" Professional Photography Workshop by Robert Fletcher
San Diego, CA
White Pocket Photo Workshop with Professional Photography Workshop leader Robert Fletcher
Vermillion Cliffs National Monument
I am leading a workshop April 24th - 26th and have room for 2 more people. I'm taking TWO trucks and can handle a total of 5 people. If you have ever thought of taking a photo workshop at White Pocket, here's your opportunity as this is not a place easily reached on your own. The following is a bit of information about the area:
Paria Canyon - White Pocket
The area of White Pocket on the Paria Plateau in Northern Arizona is very impressive indeed! While many are lured and wait their turn to visit the infamous "Wave" in the North Coyote Buttes, the "White Pocket" area to the east is seldom visited. Maybe because of its remoteness or the requirement of 4WD to access the area. The impressive White Pocket will fill the senses beyond imagination! The drive to the swirling, twisted, multicolored natural artwork is an adventure in its own right, and the exploration by foot is endless. Whether spending just a couple of hours or an entire weekend, "White Pocket" will surely become "top of the top" in the list of special places. This area has colors, shapes and textures that are hard to beat, but remember that it is an extremely fragile environment and the utmost care should be taken to preserve this place. Tread lightly and make it a point to see if you can leave the area without anyone ever having known that you were there. Stay on the slickrock when possible, but be careful not to snap off thin fins and don't trample the delicate vegetation between the small mounds of beautiful stone. This area should, and can be, saved for any and all that visit in the future.
I am driving my 4WD Dodge MegaCab to the workshop and one other 4WD. We are “cold camping” at White Pocket (which means tent, sleeping bag and ice chest) for two nights. The cost of the workshop is $300 and the cost of transportation to and from White Pocket from Corona is $175.
Please let me know if you’re interested. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org

www.synnatschke.de I offered to post this for Robert Fletcher since he lives in Riverside County (not San Diego area) and I am also going on the same workshop at an earlier date. I went on his Joshua Tree weekend event and it was wonderful.
