PhotoPillers in the USA...

Are you in?

Around the New Moon…

From March 27th to April 6th 2022, David Swindler (local PhotoPills Master) and Rafael Pons (the Bard, PhotoPills team) will jump into 4x4 vehicles and travel across the Southwest USA to photograph the Milky Way and the golden light along with the marvels of this red-rock wonderland created by wind, water and time.

Truth is that the National Parks of Zion, Glen Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef and the Grand Staircase-Escalante hide scenery unlike any other on the planet!

And of course…

We’ll be taking photos all day long... and all night long!

But...

Can you imagine it?

To photograph the Milky Way and the golden light with vast red landscapes, deep canyons, strange rock formations, Native American petroglyphs, epic arches, natural bridges, ancient alcoves and iconic hoodoos (thin spires of rock).

We’re dreaming about it!

To achieve it, we’ll use the planning power of PhotoPills and the expert knowledge of David Swindler to always be at the right place at the right time.

Top secret: we have quite a few legendary photos planned already ;)

It can be done!

We did it in Iceland...

We did it in Namibia...

We’ll do it again in the USA!

The Adventure

10 PhotoPillers | David Swidler | Rafael Pons | Southwest USA | Endless legendary photos

Warning! This is not a honeymoon…

We’re recruiting 10 brave PhotoPillers (PhotoPills and photography nerds) to join us on a 11-day expedition to photograph the Milky Way and the golden light along with the hidden treasures of the Southwest USA.

It’s a non-stop adventure to chase legendary photos and you are a key asset!

We have planned tons of photos, and we’ll travel many kilometers (and hike a few more) to capture them...

But we also want to maximize our flexibility in terms of itinerary and schedule in order to take advantage of all the opportunities that the changing weather will surely put in our way.

If we see something interesting happening in the sky, we’ll pick the best location possible, stop and take advantage of the occasion.

When we are hungry, we’ll stop and eat. When we are tired, we’ll stop and rest...

You are about to embark on a PhotoPills’ style journey. And it’s not going to be a honeymoon precisely... :P

This adventure is going to require a lot of physical effort…

But it's going to be so much fun!

Are you in?

Day 1. Sunday, March 27th - Welcome to the Southwest

It’s Sunday morning…

You arrive at Kanab (Utah), our strategic basecamp, situated 7 miles north of the Arizona border, in the “Grand Circle” area, among some of the most stunning national parks in the US, including: Zion, Glen Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef and the Grand Staircase-Escalante.

As a curiosity, Kanab is known as “Little Hollywood” due to the great number of epic western movies that were filmed in the area. Films like El Dorado (1966) or The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976)...

(But we’re not here for the films of course…)

If you’re flying from abroad, the best way to get to Kanab is by flying into Las Vegas McCarran International Airport. And then rent a car or take a shuttle to Kanab (3hr 30min drive).

If you’re flying from inside the US, then the closest airport is the St George regional airport. It’s located at 1hr 30min drive from Kanab.

In either case, we’re happy to help you with the logistics.

11:00 am

We’ll meet at the Best Western Red Hills Hotel Meeting room for a kick-off session.

It’s time to cover trip logistics, go over gear, and discuss the plans for the days ahead.

Also we’ll talk about the different shooting techniques and go over how we’ll be using the PhotoPills app during our time together.

2:30 pm

After a delicious lunch at the always chill Rocking V Café, we’ll jump onto our 4x4 vehicles and drive along a deep sand road to White Pocket, a true hidden gem... one of the most inaccessible locations in the Southwest.

Located north of Arizona, within the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument, White Pocket is the perfect playground for photographers.

We’ll explore the famous white and coral colored cauliflower rock (that looks like a brain), the swirling layers of contrasting color and the strange erosive features.

5:00 pm

Open PhotoPills and check this out:

Golden hour begins at 6:11 pm, Sunset is at 6:46 pm, golden hour ends at 7:02 pm, and blue hour ends at 7:12 pm...

So there is plenty of time to explore the area!

Use the PhotoPills Augmented Reality tool (and the Planner) to find your composition. And get ready for the light to come (or for the Sun to be at the right spot in the frame).

We’ll also use the Night Augmented reality to plan a few cool Milky Way shots for the night.

7:30 pm

After photographing the Sunset, the golden hour and the blue hour, we’ll get back to our camp where dinner awaits.

Outfitted camping is included and we’ll provide your meals, tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, pillow, and more.

Today we’ll sleep under the stars.

Photographic pills:

  • Sunset, golden hour and blue hour at White Pocket.
  • The white rock.
  • Swirling layers of contrasting color.
  • Erosive features.

Day 2. Monday, March 28th - White Wonders and Toadstool Hoodoos

1:00 am

Siesta time!

5:30 pm

After an energetic dinner at Big Al’s Burger, we’ll jump into our 4x4 vehicles and off to explore the south area of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and its Toadstool Hoodoos trail.

What’s a toadstool?

Well, it’s a spire-like feature with a boulder perched atop a pedestal rock, like a mushroom, or “toadstool”.

It forms when softer rock erodes away, leaving a column sheltered from wind and water.

And they are amazing subjects to photograph.

Golden hour begins at 7:12 pm, Sunset is at 7:47 pm, golden hour ends at 8:03 pm, and blue hour ends at 8:13 pm...

9:00 pm

We’ll drive back to Kanab and off to bed!

On the road again…

We’re heading towards Alstrom Point, arguably one of the most scenic views in the entire state!

Located in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Alstrom point is a 4,685-foot (1,428m) elevation landmark that offers the best views over Lake Powell.

And it’s also an excellent camping spot. Tonight we’ll be camping right at the viewpoint.

Lake Powell is a fantastic landmark, but not the only one. There are lots and lots of colorful rock formations in the area.

6:30 pm

After a quick snack, we’ll be standing right at the Alstrom Point Overlook, enjoying the stunning views and pastel colors that spread in front of us.

Day 6. Friday, April 1st - The Secret

I’ve been giving you lots of details of this amazing expedition to the Southwest USA.

Maybe far too many...

But on April 31st we’ll do something completely different…

What will that be?

Well, you'll have to be there, with us, to figure it out :P

Day 7. Saturday, April 2nd - Colors, Arches and the Devil

1:00 am

Stop the alarm clock and get ready to join the expedition to Bryce Canyon, in Bryce Canyon National Park.

Believe it or not, despite its name, Bryce Canyon is not a canyon. It’s a natural collection of amphitheaters along the eastern side of the Paunsaugunt Plateau.

The rock formations, the hoodoos and their red, orange and white colors will make our day!

The plan is to spend the first hours photographing the Milky Way with the stunning rock formations that spread until infinity.

We’ll photograph several different spots and experiment with both natural and low-level lighting.

The Galactic Center will be visible from 2:09 am to 5:43 am.

6:00 am

Snack time.

After breakfast, we’ll get back to our hotel (Ruby’s Inn) for a little rest.

12:00 pm

After checking out of the hotel, we hit the road towards the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.

Escalante boasts a mixture of colorful sandstone cliffs soaring above narrow slot canyons; picturesque washes and seemingly endless slickrock; prehistoric village sites and abandoned old Western movie sets, among many other treasures.

This is going to be fun!

1:00 pm

Once in Escalante, we’ll have lunch at Circle-D. And then we’ll check in at the Canyon Country Lodge.

2:30 pm

Siesta time!

6:30 pm

Golden hour begins at 7:15 pm, Sunset is at 7:50 pm, golden hour ends at 8:06 pm, and blue hour ends at 8:15 pm.

Down time!

12:00 pm

Check out of the hotel. Drive to Torrey, a little town (with a population just over 300) that was established by Mormon settlers in the 1880s.

We’ll have lunch here.

2:30 pm

Back to the cars! We’re driving in direction to the upper part of Capitol Reef National Park, for another camping adventure.

Cathedral Valley was so named in 1945 by Charles Kelly, the first caretaker and superintendent of Capitol Reef National Monument, and Frank A. Beckwith. The fantastically eroded cliffs, sandstone monoliths and panoramic views reminded them of Gothic cathedrals.

4:00 pm

The huge towers and spires of this magical place are sure to impress. We’ll capture many different images as we make our way through the valley.

One of the highlights will be the Temple's of the Sun and Moon, a group of monoliths (large, freestanding rock formations) composed of the earthy, buff-pink Entrada Sandstone.

We’ll stop somewhere to have dinner and we’ll continue photographing the area until dusk.

Golden hour begins at 7:17 pm, Sunset is at 7:52 pm, golden hour ends at 8:08 pm, and blue hour ends at 8:18 pm.

Day 10. Tuesday, April 5th - Stars and Monoliths

2:00 am

After a nice sleep under the stars, we’ll wake up to capture what will be our last Milky Way shots.

And we’re in one of the best places to photograph the Milky Way on the planet.

The huge monoliths stand still in front of us, saying “here we are”.

So we’ll take advantage of these unique models and photograph them like crazy under the stars.

This is a glimpse to what happened in the PhotoPills Expedition to Iceland... But we had so many adventures and so much fun... We can’t wait for Southwest USA!

But you don’t have to take our word for granted. Here’s what some PhotoPillers say about the PhotoPills adventures:

“I went to Iceland expecting to have the opportunity to photograph the marvelous landscape and master nightscapes. What I encountered was so much more – 14 kindred souls from across the globe who share a passion for photography. Together we expanded our creative boundaries, learned from one another and had an insane amount of fun in the process. I am confident that everyone came away from the experience a better photographer.” - Warren Hatch, USA

“From the very moment the guys from PhotoPills announced the expedition to Iceland... I didn’t think it twice! I was using PhotoPills but not at its full capacity, so I had no better chance to learn from the creators of this amazing app. The experience was even more amazing than anything I could have imagined. In Iceland, I discovered a bunch of folks as crazy about photography as I am. I had a blast!

Photography is a continuous learning process, you always find something new that motivates you to improve. And this adventure made me improve more than I could imagine.” - Leonardo Villa, Colombia

"The PhotoPills guys know how to create a fantastic experience. They bring an infectiously fun energy and are always willing to drop some handy photography knowledge on you that you will take with you. You take their trip and you'll for sure have a good time, get some amazing pics and leave a better photographer." - Patrick Rory , Canada

“During my experience in Iceland I lived wonderful moments and had surprises that were beyond the expected. It completely exceeded my initial expectations! Sharing knowledge, experiences and ways of working and living photography with such a great group has been one of the most enriching life experiences I have ever had.

Who he said that learning and knowledge sharing can not be wonderfully fun?” - Carlos F. Vásquez, Colombia

“I can't say enough about what a fantastic time I had during the PhotoPills Iceland photo tour! The guys from PhotoPills and Donal Boyd were so knowledgeable, accommodating, and especially lots of fun. Never a dull moment – nonstop action and shooting of amazing landscapes for 10 days. I came away with enough images and memories to last a lifetime!” Jana Kalous, Canada
