Timelapse photography is an absolute passion of mine.  I’m excited that I’ll be joining Ron Risman and Keith Kiska for a workshop in Nevada’s Valley of Fire (just a short drive from Las Vegas).

Intimate Dark-Sky Timelapse & Photography Workshop for All Skill Levels

October 19-21, 2014 & October 23-26, 2014

 The workshop helps folks of all skill levels to create great timelapse shots.  Here’s some examples of past student work.

Join me in the Valley of Fire (one of my favorite places to shoot).  This is an intimate 3 and 4-day dark sky time-lapse workshop taking place in Nevada this October. Timelapse: Valley of Fire is an exclusive timelapse photography workshop that focuses on teaching the skills needed to capture day and night timelapses – with a focus on the night sky.  The workshops are open to photographers and cinematographers of all skill levels.

Valley of Fire State Park is home to some of the most spectacular landscapes you have ever seen.  Over 20 miles of breathtaking rainbow vistas, natural arches, stone cabins, slot canyons, wave rocks, and red-rock cliffs make this one of the most amazing destinations to capture time lapses. Located just 60 miles from Las Vegas, Valley of Fire State Park is easy to access, but far enough away to allow the night sky to fill with stars.
