July 18th and 19th
Join Adriana Michima and Kenny Midkiff of Beneath the Sky Photography for a naturally beautiful experience through your lens. We will be providing instruction for basic landscape and wildlife photography during the day and long exposure techniques at night. We hope this variety of instruction will have you reinspired for Earth's natural wonders!
Dates and locations subject to change based on weather. Dates are set for September 18-20th.
I will send a list of things you should have for this shoot prior to the date as well as a detailed itinerary at least two weeks before the class. Food and transportation from Laramie will be provided. We will also provide lodging for this shoot.
Please send deposits to reserve your spot! Info at the bottom of this page.

We will be providing food and transportation from the meeting location in Laramie WY. A few seats are available if you would like to carpool from Denver. Limited availability based on time of registration.
$200 is due at the time of registration to hold your spot. The remaining balance of the workshop must be paid no later than 30 days prior to the first day of the workshop. If you fail to do so, your spot in the workshop may be lost, and you will not receive a refund.
Should you need to cancel your attendance to the workshop, the down payment can be refunded within 120 days of the start of the workshop. After 120 days before the workshop, the down payment is non-refundable.
This workshop will involve some hiking at night, as well as walking over rocks and moving over uneven mountain terrain. We will be visiting one slot canyon that is so narrow that you will be required to carry your pack over your head for a short distance. If you are physically fit and capable of walking 3-4 miles a day, you will have no problem in this workshop.
If you have any concerns about your fitness level for this workshop, please contact me.
