Amazing landscape in an area known for many other things . . .
You've heard the expression "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas", right? Well, there are a lot more secrets about Vegas you need to know about!

Join me for a fast-paced, fun and exciting Soul Road Trip to Las Vegas where I’ll share with you some of those amazing secrets not known to many. Ever heard about Red Rock Canyon? How about The Valley of Fire? Or Nelson, a ghost town not far south of Vegas? Come on out for a great photographic experience in Las Vegas, Nevada!

April 6 - 9, 2018




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 photographic rich landscape. Really!

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 . . .
