2014 Photography Workshops in the Southwest USA

Join us in 2014 for a Chase the Light Photography Adventures.

We specialize in teaching you how to create beautiful photos in special places we love in the Southwest USA.  Monument Valley and Utah Canyonlands in the Spring, Colorado Waterfalls in early summer, prime Colorado Wildflower season in mid-summer, Glorious Aspens and Golden Cottonwoods of Utah and Colorado in the fall, and the amazing Canyons of Capitol Reef and Zion National Park in late October.

Private lessons in Durango

Schedule your private lessons with Kit Frost.  We meet at Chase the Light Studio in Durango, Colorado, and begin your lessons with a thorough understanding of how your camera works.
email Kit Frost to schedule your private lessons.

In 2014, our special tuition for a one-hour private digital camera lesson – $50.

You’ve seen the buttes and mesas of Monument Valley in films since John Wayne and John Ford. Join us for 4 days of exploring the beauty, capturing the red rock at the “right place, right time, with the right gear”.  Our accommodations are in Bluff, Utah, and at The Kayenta Inn. Or let us know and we will “hook you up” with a campsite the frist and last nights.  Up for sunrise and out till sunset, we “Chase the Light” and learn to be at the “right place, right time”, for amazing images of this most awesome grand land.

By getting down low, this composition includes a strong foreground, middle-ground and shows a sense of place in the distance too. A wide-angle lens helps to really show the full sweep of this composition.  Nikon D-5100 w/Nikon 16-85 lens©Kit Frost

Colorado is known for our wildflowers, our state flower is the Columbine. Summer in the San Juans  is like no other place in the USA.  Our wildflowers bloom at altitudes of 10,500 feet and above, and our mountain roads lead us to some of the most beautiful basins and wildflower displays.  Join us for a trip to some of our favorite locations for lessons in color photography.
