MARCH 19 - 24, 2020

Dramatically diverse landscapes.

Simply Breathtaking


We are going to the Badlands for many reasons. The geologic rock formations are stunning, unique and breathtaking. The wildlife is prolific and easy to photograph. And, it is very dark at night! There will be a new moon during our Road Trip so we will certainly be hanging out, late, to photograph the Milky Way. Wooohooo!!


The colors and textures of the many outcroppings and rock formations change their colors with different light throughout the day. You truly have to see it and photograph this place.   




Keeping the Watch


We’ll capture sunsets and sunrises of these amazing landscapes. We'll even spend an evening on the strip photographing the bright lights of Vegas!! The ghost town of Nelson offers us old and decaying cars, trucks and buildings. And just because I can . . . I will be offering image critiques and Photoshop tips and tricks to show you how to enhance your newly acquired images into works of art!

La Quinta Red Rocks / Summerlin will be our host, 702-243-0356 and tell them you are with the SOUL ROAD TRIPS.

Bring your favorite camera gear, tripod, shutter release, filters and laptop with Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC (already installed and working)

All skill levels are encouraged to come and play in this atmosphere beyond words. After the workshop you will see why words can't explain this unusual and unique collection of  photographically  rich landscape. Seriously!

Here are some of the things I hope to encourage your photographic growth in:


  • Image pre-visualization

  • Composition

  • Exposure

  • Depth of field

  • Lens selection

  • Image prep in Lightroom

  • Image enhancement in Photoshop

  • and so much more . . .

If you'd like to see what you too can create, visit my fine art web site at

This workshop is limited to 10 attendees so that I can run around and get with each of you to help and instruct as much as you desire. It is open to all levels of skill & desire so don’t be shy . . . 
reserve your spot right now!
