An Overview of the Workshop
Our journey begins on Thursday, April 25, with a meet-and-greet dinner and orientation at one of Sedona´s best Asian restaurants, followed by a sunset shoot of iconic Cathedral Rock reflecting in Oak Creek.
Friday, we travel from Sedona through the Painted Desert in two luxury SUVs to Page, AZ. Photograph the stunning sandstone narrows of Antelope Canyon, a slot canyon world-famous for its sensual light.
After a hearty barbeque lunch, frame the sunset at spectacular Horseshoe Bend, a breathtaking overlook of a deep bend in the Colorado River as it enters the Grand Canyon. Dinner and margaritas at Page´s best Mexican restaurant complete this first introduction to the beauty of the Southwest.
Saturday, we continue to sacred Monument Valley and enter the spiritually blessed Navajo lands and the backdrop of John Wayne Westerns. Photograph a traditional Navajo rug weaver before we set out on an exploration of the most magical spots of this Valley, led by a local Navajo photography guide. Complete the day with an iconic sunset shot of the towering Mittens.
Sunday, we make an early start on a four-wheel-drive over the sand dunes to capture sunrise at the gravity-defying Totem Pole and “spirits of the Yei Bi Chei”, another awe-inspiring formation. In the early afternoon, we leave for the highlight of the trip: A rough four-wheel-ascent to the top of Hunts Mesa with the most majestic view of Monument Valley. We photograph the fantastic panoramic sunset views from our perch, as our guides set up camp and cook a delicious campfire dinner under the stars.
Monday, we begin our final day by capturing the first rays of the sun caressing the sacred Monument Valley in the morning. Following a tasty lunch in Kayenta’s charming Amigo Café, we return to Sedona through the scenic lands of roaming wild horses, with vistas of enormous sandstone formations and the majestic San Francisco Peaks. A farewell dinner in Sedona with a review of our photographic and spiritual experiences concludes our journey together.
