Utah-Arizona

Join this unmissable photo tour "on the road". In 4x4 without limits, covering the historic routes that cross the red sandstone of the federal states of Utah and Arizona. An infinity of photographic opportunities to be taken in 8 days of travel immersed in the deafening silence of the Southwest.

Few geographical areas of the planet have given humanity so many images, which later became very famous, like Southwest USA. This workshop, a privileged laboratory on the landscape and on some of its most vivid expressions, chooses Utah and Arizona as excellent stages of study, enchantment and pure pleasure. The selected shooting areas, well known from the tour leader of the trip and collected in a carefully studied 8-day journey, will give participants the chance to deepen without hurry or limit the essence of the "west" and the magnificence of shapes from the forms, dimensions and colors to live absolutely in person. The tour will move with large 4x4 vehicles, with which to move in comfort and without hindrance, and will follow an itinerary that from the Las Vegas strip will line Zion National Park and then stay in Bryce Canyon, from where it will move through Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument to reach Moab, from which to visit Canyonlands and Arches National Park. Below we will descend towards Monument Valley, which will be studied photographically both at sunset and at dawn. We will continue to Page, with a private tour for photographers (out of quota) in Upper Antelope Canyon, a tour around Lake Powell and a dutiful episode at Horseshoe bend. Then the Grand Canyon, staying in the park and exploiting privileged shooting points for the sunset and for the next sunrise; possibility of helicopter tours (out of quota). We will then move towards Las Vegas, passing through a historic section of Route 66. A photographic and life experience not to be missed!
