About the Event

This workshop has been CANCELLED.  Please check out our other workshops!

In March, the desert is in bloom, turning the browns and grays into an explosion of color.  It's a fantastic time of year to visit the southwest for landscape photography

We will also visit the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. (Don't think old paintings -- think birds, both captive and wild.) We will see a wide variety of birds of prey up close and get to photograph them both perched and in flight.  

This workshop will not enter Saguaro National Park this year.  We will be photographing on public land that does not require a permit.
