White Pocket Vermilion Cliffs

Unique Geology in the Heart of Red Rock Country

October 15–20, 2022

White Pocket is the underlying beauty of our planet laid bare. Part of a more extensive series of formations on the Pariah Plateau in America’s Southwest, substantial erosion has revealed incredible swirling layers of sandstone. This workshop is a backcountry experience of one of the most unusual and photogenic geologic formations in the region. Vermilion Cliffs National Monument has many other great subjects, and we will explore them, as well as the multi-colored Chinle formations near the movie town of Paria.

We’ll spend two nights in our fully-outfitted remote camp, where you’ll have plenty of time to explore the sandstone formations and the surrounding plains. We’ll also spend three nights in Page Arizona, where we’ll conduct our signature image reviews and provide instruction on post-processing in Adobe Lightroom. You’ll learn techniques for composing your images, focus stacking, using neutral density filters, and more.

Our camp complies with all the standards of a National Monument commercial use permit.
