Arches National Park is the latest Utah park to be certified as somewhere you can see a truly dark night sky.
According to IDA, an International Dark Sky Park is a land possessing an exceptional and renowned quality of starry nights that provide abundant opportunities for photographing the night sky.
Join us in June 2021 from sunset to sunrise under moonless skies in Arches National Park to capture some of the most stunning geologic formations that make this a monumental backdrop for epic night sky photography.

Each night our shooting will begin at sunset and continue for several hours of astrophotography to be able to maximize our time in the park. There will also be an optional opportunity for sunrise shooting on 2 of our mornings.
Astrophotography requires a professional level camera and lens in order to be successful and get the image results you are looking for.
If you do not have a professional level camera or lens, we would highly recommend purchasing or renting them.
If you need to purchase or rent ANY of the required equipment - please, feel free to contact me at 719.930.1301 and I can help you get set up.
We only teach in our workshops single exposure wide-field astrophotography, which can best be described as landscape photography in the dark, with an emphasis on capturing brilliant Milky Way images using wide-angle lenses.
Over the years a variety of techniques have been developed but our shooting time will be focused on getting the most out of your equipment with just a single exposure.
This is a great place for the beginning astrophotographer to start or the intermediate photographer to perfect before moving on to the more technical options.
We will also spend an afternoon on post-processing techniques that can help you create striking images using Lightroom Classic CC.
Bring your laptop to the class loaded with a couple of images you want to process. Make sure you have the latest version of Lightroom Classic CC loaded. If you don’t already own Lightroom Classic CC - you can download a free 7 day trial here.
Participants: Limit 6
Moderate : All age levels are welcomed. Light hiking is involved, but nothing too strenuous. We’ll drive to each location then hike to the best position.
