2016 Photography Workshops in the Southwest USA

2015-2016 Calendar of Photography Workshops

Let us be your photo guides to the Southwest USA. Our specialty is teaching you how to create beautiful photos in the special places we love in the Southwest USA.  Utah Canyonlands in the Spring, Monument Valley Photography Adventure, Grand Canyon, Grand Imagery, 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.  Two new workshops in 2015-2016, Grand Canyon, Grand Imagery and Ghost Ranch, O’Keeffe Country.  We share some of the best locations throughout the Southwest.  We teach you the right place and right time to press the shutter.

As a student of Kit Frost’s 2014 Monument Valley Workshop, I was very impressed with the entire experience. Having been an amateur photographer for over 40 years, I had never attended a photography workshop and had yet to explore the Utah Southwest. Kit was an extremely capable teacher / mentor and has a unique way of connecting with individual students to help instill their own unique way of seeing the world and capturing their vision within their own photographs. 

Aside from her technical knowledge and her ability to capture amazing images, Kit was able to help me “feel” the geography and connect with the natural world in which we were situated. Her personable style and excellent communication skills then helped me to capture imagery that was forming in my mind.

 In The Mountains of Colorado, Summer 2016

Wildflower Photography in the Mountains of Colorado, July and August 2016

Our late winter snowfall in the Mountains of Colorado has me drooling for this summer’s wildflower season.  We will explore and photograph at some of the most prolific locations for Colorado Columbine, Paintbrush, Marsh Marigold, Brook Cress and other high altitude flowers.  Chase the Light Photography will escort you to our favorite locations outside of Silverton, Durango and Mancos, Colorado.

Bring your digital camera gear, your assortment of lenses, a point and shoot or your iPhone for sketching and composition lessons.  Bring your tripod, it’s essential that we see what you are seduced by in the field so we can work with you to improve your wildflower images.  Bring your enthusiasm and dress in layers.
