There is nothing like the Great Southwest at its peak photographic season. The "Ultimate Chasing Monsoon Light In The Southwest Workshops" are full of adventure, living on the edge and sure to produce some of the most epic of images of your life!
These workshops will be centered around capitalizing on the highest precipitation time of the year. This means the highest potential for dramatic clouds, rainbows, lightning and infamous SW light! As is usual, our base location will be Page, Arizona to start the tour but we will be going to a wide array of locations matching great light with extraordinary and original desert landscape scenery!
Whether we get wild weather, thunderheads, rainbows, lightning or even simple blue sky days all situations are easily capitalized on in the SW. In-case we get a couple blue sky days, slot canyons are their very best at that time and these entire tours are built around the New Moon for Epic Night Photography! We may also go see one or two lesser seen gooseneck bends if the weather cooperates and the group is up for some real off-roading!
During "The Ultimate Chasing Monsoon Light In The Southwest Workshops" we go into unique territory, locations many have never seen nor will ever be able to get to because of their remoteness. Because I lived literally out in this beautiful desert for years, I've been able to scout the uncharted and have made connections with locals to enable us to capture its magnificent beauty with the respect and specific skills needed to make this workshop experience one you will never forget.

"I’ve had the opportunity to join Mark on both a group (Patagonia), 2 private (Southwest) workshops and The Ultimate Southwest Workshop. If your goal is to stretch beyond your comfort zone, to see (and photograph) locations that are a bit out of the ordinary or if you just want to become a better photographer – I can’t recommend Mark any higher! His passion and dedication to his “job” has no limit – and makes the entire experience thoroughly enjoyable. Mark has the ability to provide whatever level of assistance you need – without being overbearing or condescending. A truly great time which has me looking at the calendar to book another adventure!" - Todd Miller
