Photograph amazing colorful landscapes in Colorado's beautiful San Juan Mountains, regarded as one of the most scenic locations in the world for fall foliage. Foliage in this area is never the same from year to year, and in some cases day to day. With the changing of the seasons occuring you may have incredibly colored aspens against the back drop of bare mountians one day to backdrops of snow covered mountains the next, to snow covered aspen trees the next. Come prepared for all types of weather because we will shoot in it!

Accommodations

Lodging and meals not provided (we have a list of recommendations)

We can provide transportation on location for at most 3 people.

When arranging for your transportation keep in mind that we will be traveling on some dirt and gravel roads. In the fall, if it rains or snows, driving can be tricky on these roads and at the higher elevations so we recommend you reserve a 4 x 4 or SUV as soon as you book your spot.You will not need a high clearance, off road vehicle. The preference would be for workshop members to pool together in their vehicles when going out on location. This will help you to get to know other members of the group and to making parking availability at locations easier for all.

There are airports in Grand Junction (1.5 hour drive), Denver (5 hour drive), Colorado Springs (5 hour drive), Montrose (30 minute drive, regional airport) and Telluride (1 hour drive, regional airport) for those who'd like to fly in from elsewhere.

Preferred airport destination is Montrose Regional Airport, for those who need to ride with us. If interested we will share your name and contact information with other participants should you want to coordinate your flights and share car rental fees.


Booking

You can sign up securely using your credit card via the PayPal link on this page or by calling Jonathan Steele Photography at 860-984-3810 (please leave a message).

There is a $300.00 deposit due at time of signup and the remaining balance is due in full by August 15th.

This workshop will go rain, shine or snow, as this time of year can be very dynamic with rapidly changing weather systems. No two years are quite the same.

We must have 4 signups by the cutoff date of August 1st or the workshop may be cancelled and refunds issued to those who signed up.

Once we've confirmed the workshop is on, final payment is due by no later then August 15th

No refunds will be issued after the cutoff date of August 1st unless it is a result of Jonathan Steele Photography cancelling the workshop.

Physical Difficulty

Attendees should be in good health and capable of working outdoors in bad weather and at high altitude. We will be traveling in cars and there will be minimal walking and hiking. It is important to know that we will be working in elevations above 7000 feet and therefore recommend that you consult your doctor beforehand to make sure you do not have high altitude sickness or problems. Because of the higher elevations we will provide water during the workshop and will ask that you drink a lot of it to prevent dehydration, headaches and other symptons known to occur in some at high elevations.

You will be asked to sign a waiver to participate.


What to Bring

Digital SLR Camera
Wide-angle to telephoto lenses. I usually cover from 17mm-500mm with my lenses but 17-300mm will work also. Note that for star photography you will need a wide angle lense that opens up to f4 or better.

Polarizing filter
Memory cards
Headlamp
Extra camera batteries, make sure your headlamp has fresh batteries also.
Laptop (not required but useful for image editing and storage)
