DEATH VALLEY PHOTO TOUR ITINERARY
This Death Valley photo tour is a self-drive adventure that will allow us plenty of opportunities to shoot the incredible dunes and desert-like scenery in different situations and with different light.
Our itinerary is flexible, we will pick the best location depending on the conditions and make sure everyone receives the required amount of tuition on the field. Once back at the hotel, we will have time for post-processing lessons as well. This 7-days itinerary workshop will give us plenty of time to visit different locations and bring back home amazing shots.
Everyone is responsible to get to the meeting point and back as well as around the area with his/her own transportation, as this is a self-drive photo tour. Prior the trip, we can put all the participants in touch should you wish to share a car. The tour’s price doesn’t include lodging, participants will need to book hotels as per our instructions. We will help with the arrangements. We require a good level of fitness as walking on sand can be exhausting. You will need to be able to carry all your gear.
You can read below everything you need to know about what the tour’s price includes and excludes. If you wish to register and/or have some more questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
