What we're about

https://photos3.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/6/1/6/4/event_192864932.jpeg Learn a unique style of starry-night-sky landscape photography from Royce Bair and his guest associates. Meet-ups vary from free lectures and photo walks to location workshops. Workshops vary from overnight location shoots within 100 miles from Salt Lake City, Utah — to 3-day workshops in Utah and Wyoming National Parks. (See more NightScape photos here (https://www.meetup.com/NightScape-Photography/about/).)

My focus is on your success: It's been great to have companies like General Motors & IBM, and magazines such as the Smithsonian & National Geographic use my photos; but right now, I want to help you experience your photo vision, whether you're a novice, intermediate, or a pro. With over two decades of national and international lecture/workshop experience, I know how to excite your creativity and to make techniques easy to understand and master.

Until we met: Here's a YouTube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovYqcXHnwmw) to get you excited about some of the images you'll learn how to take. You can also learn a lot from my Into the Night Photography blog (http://intothenightphoto.blogspot.com/).

More than just "NightScapes": Most of my location workshops also include daytime landscape photography (at sunrise, sunset, and at twilight) during the most photogenic periods of the day. You'll learn techniques that will also improve your overall skills as a photographer. Here is a gallery (http://www.flickr.com/photos/ironrodart/sets/72157620412882586/detail/) of my overall published work.

Sunrise Photo Walk At Silver Lake – Big Cottonwood Canyon – Brighton, Utah

Silver Lake is a beautiful alpine lake (8,700 feet elevation), surrounded by meadows, aspens, evergreen trees and a boardwalk (wheelchair accessible). This will be a sunrise nature and landscape photography walk. The scenery, flora and fauna around the lake are breathtaking. You are likely to see moose, deer, beaver and a wide variety of wild flowers. I’d advise bringing a wide variety of lens (normal, wide angle, telephoto and macro). This walk is for all skill levels — even those with a cell phone camera.

At this early hour, just after sunrise (which comes at about 6:30 am), there should not be a lot of competition for parking. However, if the Visitor’s Center parking lot is full, use the open parking space surrounding the Brighton Store and Cafe, just east of the Visitor’s Center parking lot.

The lake is only 30 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City. It is located near Brighton, Utah; and, is only 15 miles (25 minutes) from the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon (Highway 190).

This event is part of Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photo Walk. Check it out. Enter the photo contest. Get the T-shirt. Donate to the cause (Springs of Hope Orphanage).
