Workshop Schedule- The tour will begin on Jan 28th and we will be meeting at "The Bryce Canyon Pines Hotel" by 3pm. From there we will be checking in to our rooms and then getting your camera gear ready so we can head out and shoot our first Bryce Canon sunset. However, before we take off for that first shoot, we will have a meeting downstairs in the lobby at 3:45pm to introduce ourselves to everyone and answer any questions.
We will be shooting sunrise and sunset every day and if the weather in the Canon is in our favor we can shoot later into each morning. Then after each morning depending on how everyone is feeling we can head back to the hotel to rest and grab some breakfast.
