Zion Photo Tour Overview

On this tour, we will explore Zion by shuttle, car, and by foot. Get to know the lesser-known nooks and grow to love the famous ones. With the colors of fall in full swing, capture Zion in pictures as you’d never imagined. And if we’re lucky, we’ll catch a dusting of winter snow.

This tour will focus on flowing water and swaying colors as the Cottonwood trees lining the Virgin River dance to the autumn breezes.

The views of Zion are breathtaking any time of the year—however, fall elevates this visual and visceral experience to another level. The fall colors peak in early November and add new tones to the color palette—contrasting vividly against the red sandstone rock.

Zion Photo Tour Itinerary

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. We make one afternoon free of shooting—for resting and learning how to improve post-processing skills in Adobe Lightroom.

Our first photo excursion will be afternoon/sunset.

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 photo tour will end after the sunrise shoot.

Extra activities

On one dedicated afternoon, we’ll help you improve your post-processing skills in Adobe Lightroom and streamline your photography management.

If so desired, we will also hold portfolio reviews on a one-by-one basis providing honest and constructive feedback.
