Utah Canyon Photography

The landscapes of southern Utah and northern Arizona are among the most photogenic places on the planet, and we've put together an amazing itinerary which includes some of the best and least known locations. Our trip starts and ends in Las Vegas, allowing convenient and economic international flights to be arranged. You'll be met at the airport and transferred to one of the major hotels on the world famous Las Vegas Strip where you'll spend your first night. For everyone arriving before 5pm we will meet for a welcome dinner to allow everyone to meet their fellow group members.

The first day starts with a dawn photo session in the Valley of Fire situated an hour north of the city. After breakfast in a traditional style American diner we head for a scenic drive through Zion National Park, stopping along the way to grab shots and stretch our legs on a couple of short hikes to viewpoints overlooking the Zion Canyon. We eventually head to Red Canyon for sunset before checking into our accommodation in Bryce Canyon (is that enough canyons for you??) ready for an astro and dawn photo session early in the morning.

Day 2 sees us driving into an otherworldly landscape which will have you questioning if you are still on planet Earth. We'll shoot sunset in one of our secret locations before checking into our accommodation ready for another alien landscape session the following morning.

Day 3 sees us head to the town of Moab which will be our base for the next couple of nights. From here we have access to some amazing canyon views. There will be some free time on one of the afternoons to wander around the boutique shops and galleries, or just sit in a coffee house and edit your images taken so far.

We then head south to Monument Valley for three days, during which we will shoot it from various angles at both dawn and dusk. We will have Navajo guides to take us to remote locations not open to the public and will even camp out under the stars at what must be one of the best views you are ever likely to witness.

We then move on to the town of Kenab for our final two nights, from where we will explore the world's longest slot canyon and a secret location we recently discovered.

Our final morning will be spent passing back through Zion canyon at dawn, before a tradtional style diner breakfast on our way back to Las Vegas for flights home. You can extend your stay in Las Vegas if you wish to do so.

  • The quality of the tuition was absolutely perfect. James alongside yourself pitched the course in a manner that catered for everyone's needs. The dynamic between the two of you immediately set a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere which developed on many occasions into amusing and, at times hilarious, banter.

  • "Staying in small villages and eating local home cooked food also added to the memories I now have of the real China."

  • I saw everything I had hoped to see and learnt a lot more about photography than I had expected.
