Photography Tours and Workshops in the American Southwest
with Branson Reynolds
No matter how advanced your equipment or how well you know how to use it, the most important element in creating outstanding images is being in the right locations at the right time. In areas that are unfamliar to you, this usually depends on a guide with in-depth knowledge of the areas as well as of locations beyond the obviouds were different and stunning compositions can be found.
For over 35 years Branson Reynolds has studied, explored and photographed throughout the west (see bio), and his backgrounds in biology, archaeology, and photography led to a career as a photographer, writer, teacher and guide. He lives in Durango, Colorado, near the Four-Corners, the only location in the U.S. where four states--- Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah meet. Here are found the highest mountains, deepest canyons and most mysterious deserts within the continental US. And it is here, where Branson is most familiar, that he conducts his tours and workshops.
Whether it is the “Americana” along Historic Rt 66, the Canyon/Desert Country of Utah and Arizona or the Mountains of Colorado, his trips will have you in the right locations at the right time to enable you to capture the images you have imagined. And his knowledge of the cultural and natural history of the areas visited will give you a connection to and understanding of these magical lands that will in ways be as meaningful as the images you take home.
"Thank you for your unending help and attention on our recent trip. I will use your tips about filters, backlit shots, flash fill, wide-angle lenses and photography in general for years to come. And the breadth of your knowledge about the area was awesome—always having us at the right places at the right time.” Dick Rowen, San Diego, CA
“Not only did I learn a lot about photography and see some incredible places, I was astounded by your knowledge of the land. I returned home with lot more than beautiful pictures. It changed the way I see things.” Rob White, Sacramento, CA

Any of the workshops and tours can be "personalized"
Any trip can be designed for groups or individuals who, either want more in-depth instruction, or who are looking for locations and want to concentrate on the best areas. Trips are suited for anyone from those who want to work with the basics while surrounded by incredible scenery to the more advanced photographer who is looking for locations.
Trips can be as short as a half or single day to multiple days including a variety of locations. I'll help you design a trip that meets your specific interests and time and offers you opportunities to create the images you envision.
