During the photo tour, we will take advantage of the best light during daylight hours to take advantage of our time in the park. We will be shooting sunrises and sunsets as well as scenes during the day.
On day 1, the group will meet in Bryce Canyon village for a welcome briefing at 7:00 p.m.
Our first photo excursion will be the sunrise shoot on day 2. After that, we’ll head back to the hotel for breakfast, and after that, we’ll head back to the park for some moderate hiking mixed with photography. We’ll call it a day with a sunset shoot in the park.
Day 3 will have the same structure as day 2.
On Day 4, we’ll wrap up the photo tour after the sunrise shoot.
All scheduled photoshoots are subject to change. We will do our best to utilize given weather conditions to maximize shooting opportunities for each day. We will provide a tentative itinerary and meeting times at our initial meeting. The itinerary will remain flexible according to conditions on any given day.
The closest airports to Bryce Canyon National Park are the Bryce Canyon Airport (BCE), located just outside the park’s boundaries, and the St. George Regional Airport (SGU), located approximately 130 miles south of the park.
However, both of these airports offer limited flight options and may not be the most convenient or cost-effective choices for travelers. The nearest major airports with more flight options are the Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (LAS) and Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC), both of which are approximately 270 miles from Bryce Canyon National Park.

Participants in the Bryce Canyon National Park photography tour should be prepared for a variety of weather conditions in November. While the days can be sunny and mild, temperatures can drop rapidly at night, and snow or other wintry precipitation is possible. It’s essential to check the weather forecast before your trip and pack accordingly to ensure you have the appropriate clothing for any conditions you may encounter.
During the daytime hikes, participants should dress in layers to allow for easy adjustments as the temperature changes throughout the day. A base layer of moisture-wicking fabric is ideal to keep you dry and comfortable, followed by a warm mid-layer such as a fleece or down jacket. A waterproof and wind-resistant outer layer is also essential to protect against rain, snow, or wind.
For the sunrise shoot at Agua Canyon Overlook, temperatures can be particularly chilly, especially in the early morning hours. It’s essential to bring warm layers such as a hat, gloves, and a warm down jacket to keep you comfortable during the shoot. A sturdy pair of boots with good traction is also recommended, as the ground may be slick or icy in places.
In the evenings, temperatures can drop rapidly, so it’s essential to have warm clothing such as a down jacket, hat, and gloves to stay comfortable during the sunset shoot. It’s also a good idea to bring hand warmers or other accessories to keep your fingers and toes warm during the colder parts of the day.
Overall, participants should be prepared for a range of temperatures and weather conditions during the Bryce Canyon National Park Photography Tour in November. By packing appropriate clothing and accessories, you can ensure that you stay comfortable and enjoy the stunning landscapes and photo opportunities the park has to offer.
