Workshop Description

Click on the tabs below to view each topic.

Join Erin Babnik for an immersive photography workshop in one of the most unique landscapes in the world. Using the Furnace Creek area of Death Valley National Park as our base, we will explore the wealth of photogenic options for landscape photography that are available within short drives and short hikes.

From rippled sand dunes to colorful badlands and otherworldly salt flats, we will have a variety of incredible opportunities for translating spectacular scenes of nature into compelling photographs. Erin will guide you through the entire process with dedicated instruction on all aspects of the art of landscape photography.

Erin will be assisted in the field by a support team from Canon, and each participant will go home with 1–2 free prints of their photos from the workshop from a Canon pro printer! All camera brands are welcome, and all will be included in the printing session!

No level of experience is necessary for participants of this workshop. Whether you are just beginning or are a seasoned pro, we are happy to help you move forward with your photography.

Airports

• The nearest airport is in Las Vegas. McCarran International Airport (LAS) is about two hours away from Furnace Creek.

• Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is about five hours away from Furnace Creek.

Rental Cars

Many options are available for renting a vehicle of any kind from either airport listed above. Any car will be sufficient for our outings, but a vehicle with higher clearance could make driving easier on some roads in the park.

Your Camera.  You can choose to use any camera you like, but a digital camera with full manual control and interchangeable lenses is highly recommended in order for you to have the best experience.

Lenses.   There are opportunities to use any and all focal lengths, so bring a good range of them.

Tripod.   A tripod is highly recommended!

Filters.   Polarizing or neutral density filters can be very useful, but it is possible to get great results without them.

Other gear. Several batteries, plenty of memory cards, a remote trigger, lens cleaning supplies.

(Optional) Laptop. If you would like to follow along or take notes during the two processing session, then you may want to have your laptop with you. The software applications that Erin will emphasize include Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.

Clothing & shoes.   Weather conditions can vary a lot this time of year. Bring insulating layers: good set of base layers, layers for warmth such as fleece and down. A shell jacket and hiking pants will help to protect against the elements as well. Hiking boots or shoes with good traction are advised, along with a warm hat and gloves.

Willingness to learn and discover.

Hiking on this workshop will be minimal. Some locations may require a hike of up to one mile, but most are not far from a parking area. The most strenuous outing will be on the sand dunes, where we will walk one mile out into the Mesquite Dune Field. Walking on sand and around dunes is more difficult than anything else that we will do, but we will go slowly to ensure the comfort of everyone in the group.
