Rick's List: Death Valley Photo Gear

rick sammon death valley.jpg

I'm planning for my Death Valley Workshop  (Feb 22 -24) with pros Randy Van Duinen and Jeff Leimbach, the dudes who run the digital photo workshops. How cool . . . and how hot! We still have a few spots open on the workshop. Hope to see you there.

We will be getting up early and staying out late to catch the light. We'll also have plenty of time or downloading and working/playing in Photoshop/Lightroom - and group slide show.

Fun dinners and happy hours? You bet!

Here's my gear list – Rick's List - for the workshop. You can also use this gear list for most landscape photography.

If you have any questions about the workshops, shoot me an email.
