Magnificent colors, intriguing shapes and forms, complex textures--the red rock canyons of Southern Utah are well known for rewarding photographers who dare to venture into this rugged and spectacular territory. Some of the world’s most stunning landscape photographs have been taken here by photographers willing to go off the beaten trail and venture deep into this vast and remote wilderness. The evolution of subtle hues of color cast upon intricately sculpted sandstone cliffs during sunrise and sunset can be a particularly stunning sight to capture. Come join one of our unique photographic adventures and enjoy the beauty of Southern Utah in a way that few have experienced. We provide the scenic locations, delicious meals and the comforts of a backcountry camp so you can focus on the details of your photography.
Get In The Wild has partnered with Bill Church Photography for a 3-day photography workshop on May 5-7 at the Robber's Roost/Dirty Devil Wilderness. During this workshop, we will cover camera functions, depth of field, night photography, light painting, digital editing, and image composition. All experience levels are welcome.
Accommodations will be Basecamp-style. We will set-up camp in a remote, wilderness location and explore from there. It is the best of both worlds - you get to experience solitude at it's finest, but don't have to worry about fitting all of your camping and photography gear into a single backpack.
The course cost is $995 per person. We expect the course to fill quickly and reservations will be made on a first come basis. Once payment is received, we will forward additional information, (suggested packing, registration form, etc.) to you.
Please contact us (818) 381-WILD, or for more information.
This class is designed for beginners. It is suitable for people of all ages who enjoy an active, adventurous, and educational outdoor experience. No previous hiking experience is required.
We invite you to come with us and experience some of the very best backcountry cuisine imaginable. Backcountry meals are a quintessential part of your wilderness experience and we have taken great strides to ensure you will have an unforgettable dining experience. For more than a decade, the owners of North American Wilderness Leadership School have worked to perfect wilderness cuisine. Each adventure is made a dash more savory with delicious food recipes that we have perfected over many years on the trail. We take pride in serving healthy, flavorful, filling and nutritious gourmet wilderness cuisine rather than the usual camp fare and off-the-shelf backpacking food. Regardless of the adventure, rest assured that we are committed to serving you the tastiest backcountry meals imaginable. We trust your wilderness meal experience will be “time deliciously spent”.
All day outings include a healthy and delicious lunch and snacks. We provide great tasting smoked turkey or vegetarian sandwiches, chips and granola bars. Condiments and handi-wipes are also included.
Note: We are happy to accommodate vegetarian, vegan, kosher and non-gluten diets on request. Please feel free to contact us to for additional information.
Wear your “play” clothes. We recommend that you wear clothes that provide flexibility, comfort and won’t rip or tear easily. We will send you a recommended clothing list following receipt of your application and deposit.
Comfortable, medium weight hiking shoes or boots generally work the best. Shoes must enclose the entire foot and toes (no open-toe sandals, or water shoes). Whatever footwear you chose, make sure you have worn them in advance of your trip to ensure they fit well and are comfortable.
Travel light! Recommended items include two to three 1-liter water bottles, headlamp, sunglasses, sunscreen, lip balm and camera. Unnecessary gear is often a hindrance—let the guides do the work for you. Your guides will have all the necessary equipment to keep the group safe and comfortable.
