White Pocket Photography Workshop

This is an add-on workshop for participants to the Lake Powell Photography Workshop 2018. This workshop is only for three participants. By joining this adventure you will be able to photograph the famous White Pocket area. This secluded place is tucked away in the remoteness of the Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness. The access is difficult and challenging. To get there and out again safely requires the right gear, knowledge and experience to stay on the right track and get through the deep sand trails. I have been there over 20 times and lately I was increasingly engaged in helping people getting out of there again. The beauty and uniqueness of the place attracts people from all over the world who are not prepared and lured in by its amazing geologic formations and photographic opportunities.

We will start the tour in Page, once the Lake Powell Photographic Workshop is finished. All participants will have the opportunity to buy some new beverages and food in Page before we leave civilization and head into the Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness. The 2 ½ – 3 hours drive from Page to White Pocket will be in my highly customized Jeep Wrangler Unlimited + off road trailer. My off road trailer has a stove for you to fix your meals and I will provide you with chairs, table and utensils to make you feel quite comfortable in the wilderness. You will need camping gear (tent, mattress, sleeping bag, headlamp) as we will stay two nights out there.

You will have plenty of time and opportunity to explore photographically the White Pocket with 2 sunsets and 2 sunrises. I will guide you through the area and show you the best places to be at the right moment of the day. I am sure that you will return home with unforgettable memories and stunning images on your memory cards.

We will return to Page Monday, 11/5 right after our second sunrise shooting session.

Any trips I organize or organize with another photographer are private and non-business. I am a physician by trade and I take people along with me on my trips because I enjoy the company and the opportunity to help people get to know and photograph the Southwest. I do not make a business out of it. My goal is to have a pleasant, safe trip with artistic value photography as a result. We share expenses, gear, ideas, and experiences. We do nothing that would require me or a co-host to be a concessionaire or CUA holder in any federal or state lands we may visit or photograph. We will not be going anyplace on public lands that are not generally open to the public. No photographs you take on public lands may be used to promote the sale or use of a product or service. We will not do any “commercial filming” as defined in the Code of Federal Regulations nor will we do any “still photography” that would require a permit from any agency administering any public land which we photograph.

We will respect nature, leave only footprints where we are allowed to leave footprints, and take only our images, memories, and friendships home with us.
