Monument Valley
photography workshop
July 20-22 - Utah/Arizona Border

This region of the Colorado Plateau is characterized by a cluster of vast sandstone buttes, the tallest reaching 1,000 ft above the valley floor. It is located on the Arizona–Utah border, near the Four Corners area on the Navajo Nation Reservation and is accessible from U.S. Highway 163.

Monument Valley has been featured in many forms of media since the 1930s. Famous movies such as Stagecoach,  Thelma & Louise, Forrest Gump and Back to the Future Part III had scenes filmed in Monument Valley. Critic Keith Phipps put it best when he said, "its five square miles have defined what decades of moviegoers think of when they imagine the American West."

The first night will be an all night camping shoot. The subsequent days are based at The View Hotel in Monument Valley. It is suggested but not required that you book here. The cost of lodging and transportation are not included in the cost of the workshop.
