Southern Utah Spring Safari                        Friday, April 24-27   $1200  ($960)


Southern Utah is one of the premier photo destinations in all the world.  From St. George we shoot the Beaver Dam Mountains and Snow Canyon State Park.  A little farther east are the birds at Leeds Creek and Gooseberry Mesa, and just past those spots are Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks, and the amazing Tuweep Overlook at the extreme southwestern edge of Grand Canyon National Park - there is Sidestep Canyon in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, and a bit farther east is Monument Valley.  Each location offers something different, unique, and dramatic.  The days will be full of great photography. Not only is this area known for its dramatic landscapes, but also for the varied wildlife, birdlife, cactus, and wildflowers that are found here in the spring. There is some walking, but very little hiking.

I lived in St.George for five years, shooting regularly for St.George Magazine back in the late 1980's.  I've spent countless hours shooting these locations, driving the back roads and learning the greater southern Utah area intimately. 


We meet in Hurricane, Utah or travel together from California if you are riding with me.  Hotel costs are low and there are good restaurants throughout the area.  This country is known for its changing spring weather, so layered clothing, snacks, and extra drinks are always good to have on hand in your vehicle if you aren't riding with me. Hiking boots, a hat, light shooting gloves, knee pads - all make shooting a little bit easier.
