Photography Tour Overview:
Valley of Fire is Nevada’s oldest and largest state park covering 42,059 acres. It derives its name from the many and varied red Aztec sandstone formations, and photographically speaking you'll enjoy the potpourri of arches, shapes, and colors, plus petrified wood and petroglyphs et cetera. We'll also explore the Moapa Valley including the Lost City museum with its' replica' pueblos and more. As with all of our photography tours, early and late shooting is scheduled for each day.


Our itinerary . . .
But first things first! We suggest that you set your camera's clock to the local time, as your images will then synchronize with the times in our included photo tour field notes.

Day 1  |  To the Valley of Fire State Park
Our group will meet in the lobby of our gateway hotel near the Las Vegas airport at 11 am, and then follow interstate 15 until we reach the turn-off for our accommodations. We'll enjoy the included lunch together, and following a short break we'll head to the Valley of Fire State Park to shoot until the sun sets. The light will be at its warmest, and the shadows cast will enhance everything you photograph. After the sun has set we'll take dinner near our accommodations.
Moapa Valley, 2 nights

Day 2  |  Valley of Fire State Park
First light photography in the park for those willing, and following breakfast we'll explore the best spots in the Moapa Valley including the 'Lost City'. We'll take a short break following lunch, then on back to Valley of Fire State Park for the last few hours of light. Locations in the park on days one and two will include Fire Canyon Arch, Elephant Rock, and Windstone Arch, plus several balanced rocks, petroglyphs, petrified trees . . . and perhaps the quite rare Desert Tortoise et cetera. The included dinner on the last night of our photography tour will feature an 'It's You!' presentation of clients in action on this tour by John.

Day 3  |  Departure day
Early on day three we'll venture back into the park, take breakfast, then make sure that you're at the Las Vegas airport in good time for your afternoon flight. If at all possible, please arrange your departing flight for 1 pm onwards. Our Grand Canyon extension commences the following day in Las Vegas.
