By Rafael Pons

PhotoPillers in USA...

Are you in?

Around 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!

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!

Who is in?

Applications will open very (very) soon. For now, please sign up for priority access with the attached application form telling us about yourself and what you’d like to learn in this exciting photography experience!

You’ll be the first to be notified when the bookings for the 2022 PhotoPills Expedition to the Southwest US are officially open. Promised!

Do you want an example of how huge this will be?

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 the Southwest US!

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.”

“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.”

"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."

“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?”

“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!”
