We leave for Italy in 1 week- we arrive several days early to scout our favorite locations and find some new ones… as well as get a little extra food and wine before the group arrives!
We spent the past weekend shooting some great images with our Desert Spring in the Canyons of the East Valley workshop. We light painted, we shot sunrises and sunset, and all of our participants got some amazing images! Although a little tired by the end, I think we all had a lot of fun.

We spent a few days camping in the Superstition Mountains east of Phoenix scouting our favorite locations for our upcoming workshop and even found some new ones! The weather was beautiful, around 80 most days and upper 40s at night… perfect! After getting up for sunrise several days in a row, it was nice to sleep in today. Though I admit, the sunrise was always beautiful!
Here are a couple desert images, the Superstition Mountains at sunrise and a backlit cholla cactus. We also visited a small “western-style” ghost town for tourists that had a lot of fun-to-shoot old mining equipment and cars. This image is part of an old rusted car.
Hope to see you in a workshop in the future! We also have room in our Digital Photo Basics March 19th! Contact us with questions…
In recent news, we completed a couple more workshops in January, Basics in Scottsdale, and another Adobe Lightroom class in Flagstaff. Lightroom is a great piece of software… and I don’t say that very often!
We only have a couple spots left on our Tuscany tour in May and it should be an amazing trip as always (see back posts on the blog if you’re interested in what we’ve done in the past). We’re working on a fun new location so there is a possibility we may not do it again next year! We will have more information on this in a few months… However, if you or someone you know is interested in Tuscany, take advantage of it this year. We’d love to have you!
This image is from 2010- that’s our village!

Last week, the weather was crazy for us here in Flagstaff! Several tornadoes hit west and north of Flagstaff. In the town of Belmont, there was quite a bit of damage, but miraculously, no one was hurt. Here’s what it looked like at our studio the morning the tornadoes hit… the rare fog was beautiful, little did we know what was happening elsewhere.
Thankfully, it stopped raining and warmed up a little for our workshop on the weekend! Here’s one of our workshop participants photographing the backlit grass in a meadow at the base of the San Francisco Peaks. Although a busy weekend- sunrise, sunset, light painting at night, another sunrise- we all had fun!
What we call “Monsoon Season” is officially here and the Arizona northland is green and beautiful! This sunflower next to our back patio is very happy to have some moisture! The sunflowers in Flagstaff are just starting- soon there will be fields of yellow all around town… I do love this time of year!
We have a few upcoming workshops-
There’s still room in our August 14-15 workshop, “Where are Those Photos? Managing your Digital Photo Life with Lightroom.” If you’d like to learn the best ways to store, find and use your photos, we can help! See the website for more details…

Joel’s NEW RELEASE is a shot we did while scouting for our June “Photographing the High Country” workshop… This is a small chapel near Flagstaff run by a group of volunteers. A beautiful spot by day or night!
