If you like to photograph wonderful landscapes, this program is a winner! Great leaders who know the best time to take the shot and from which vantage point. Two photo reviews are scheduled during the program - this is time well spent with the leaders and new friends! Arches and Canyonlands National Parks are awesome. You will also visit Dead Horse Point State Park which has a great view of the canyon. And most importantly, meeting new like minded friends is a win in this small group setting.

Arches and Canyonlands Road Scholar program was just what I wanted in exploring the Moab region photographically with little effort in the logistics of planning. The expert leadership personnel were fun, friendly and immensely helpful and knowledgeable. The participants were congenial and helpful. The food and lodging accommodations were great. The various sites visited were managed beautifully by our two leaders who worked extremely well together. I would go again next year --- except there area so many places yet to see!!

Another fabulous program! We had the opportunity to photograph incredibly beautiful scenery while also learning about composition and technique. Our leaders/instructors, Ryan and Drew, answered countless questions and provided us with plenty of information and feedback. They also made the entire week fun and entertaining, while creating a warm and friendly atmosphere for all the participants. Speaking of the participants - what a great group of people! From beginning to end, this was an outstanding experience.

If you love to photograph in the west, if you want a program that is well-organized, educational and entertaining, if you would like to spend 5-6 days with interesting people who share your passion for photography, if you love beautiful sunrises over red rock canyons and glorious sunsets captured through geological formations, than this is the program for you! Had a wonderful time and a great experience.

This program combines photography with the beautiful and varied settings in Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. The photography instruction is tailored to individual needs, with two knowledgeable and enthusiastic instructors who both have firsthand experience with the Moab area. Shooting time is designed to take advantage of sunrise and sunset, to give participants the best light of the day. The image reviews built into the program provide feedback, as well as give participants a chance to learn from others' images. It was an unforgettable trip!

you should be in good physical health as there is some hikes that can be hard on older individuals as the hike to Delicate Arch. The view are spectacular, the meals are excellent and the instructors are very helpful.

This program provides participants with the opportunity to visit the most iconic sites in the Moab area, at the best times of day and to take excellent nature photographs. There is a tremendous opportunity to learn from both the instructors and the other participants since everyone who attends this course seems to be very interested in taking high quality nature photographs.

Theo from Murrysville, PA (second program with Road Scholar) Date attended: 04/06/14 - 04/11/14 This was a great program. The shooting locations were fantastic and we always were there at the right time. The participants were enjoyable and friendly and our leader/instructors Ryan and Drew were the best I have ever had on a guided program. I learned a lot and am already looking forward to a future photoshoot with these guys!

I thoroughly enjoyed this program. The instructors were open, friendly and made for a warm and inviting environment for the entire group. The accommodations and meals were great. Best of all was the wonderful locations we visited in Arches and Canyonlands National Parks as well as Dead Horse Point State Park. The instructors were always willing to assist when asked. This is great program for the armature or advanced photographer.
