Sierra Club Fall Color Photography Workshop

  • Dec 1, 2012 · 7:00 AM

A fall color canyoneering experience not to be missed by the avid outdoors photographer.

This one day exclusive Fall Color Sierra Club Photography Workshop will take place in two of the most beautiful and seldom photographed canyons in south eastern Arizona. Saturday morning we will carpool, Sierra Club style, from Tucson and Phoenix to the eastern end of Aravaipa Canyon and meet professional photographer Michael Madsen and experienced Southwestern U.S. hike leader Mitch Stevens. After parking at the east end of Aravaipa Canyon we will hike two miles through colorful Aravaipa Creek to the confluence of Hell Hole Canyon, a long serpentine side canyon, for dramatic photos of spring fed waterfalls and seeps laced with Maiden Hair Ferns.
Workshop for adventurous wilderness photographers looking to add dramatic photos to their portfolio.


Grab your digital single lens reflex camera, water shoes and dry bag to keep your equipment dry as we shoot in the diverse lighting conditions of Aravaipa and Hells Hole Canyons. Be prepared to mount your camera on a tripod and switch your camera to manual and learn how to take charge of your camera. Our goal is to provide personal instruction and teach techniques for improving your photography skills in manual mode. This workshop is scheduled for the peak week of fall color so we will have the added bonus of expanding our fall foliage photography skills!Workshop for adventurous wilderness photographers looking to add dramatic photos to their portfolio.

Our journey involves off trail hiking. We will be canyoneering in Aravaipa Canyon Wilderness Area where we will hike in Aravaipa Creek and we will get wet up to our knees. Water shoes, food and tripod are strongly recommended, a desire for adventure is required! Please check our suggested pack list for ideas.
