Discuss this workshop
Moab attracts photography enthusiasts to the Four Corners Utah area. Located in southeastern Utah along the banks of the Colorado River between soaring red sandstone cliffs, Moab is the gateway to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, Dead Horse Point State Park, the Colorado River and the beautiful La Sal Mountains. There are more National Parks, State Parks and other major attractions within a 200-mile radius of Moab than any other location in Utah. And Nikonians Academy is going for a series of workshops and field shooting to both Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.
Below is a sample itinerary of our trip. Note that our exact itinerary probably will change due to local weather, conditions or other factors. We use our extensive local knowledge to maximize your photo opportunities each day.
