Workshop Leader: Andy Biggs

Please see our Safaris and Workshops section for more workshop and safari dates.


I will be leading a rigorous 4.5 day photography workshop in Moab, Utah in February 2013. Moab is the epicenter of red rock country with its famous arches, balanced rocks and spires in Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. If you have never photographed in the Moab area, you owe it to yourself to witness some of the most famous geological formations in the American West. The area is also famous for mountain biking, motorcycling, and offroading. February is an excellent time to photograph the winter landscape, which often includes passing snowstorms. I prefer to photograph areas that are less photographed, so come along with me to see some of the behind the scenes hotspots in the area.

This workshop is primarily a field workshop, however we will have opportunities to discuss and work on post processing tips and techniques with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom as well as some of the Nik Software plugins. We will be in the field early in the morning and early in the evening to catch the dawn and dusk light with a little bit of down time in between. We will have discussion and assistance while out in the field each day. Advanced techniques will be constantly discussed, demonstrated and put into practice. We will all work closely together, sharing our knowledge and experience.

The workshop will begin on the afternoon of Wednesday, February 20 at 2pm, and will finish after sunset on Sunday, February 24th.



The price for the workshop is $995. Transportation, lodging and meals are not included. Use the button below to reserve your space for the workshop. The deposit for the workshop is $400, with the remaining balance to be due by January 15, 2013. If you need to cancel, your deposit will be refunded if I am able to fill your spot on the workshop. Please email me at for registration / deposit instructions.


The workshop will be based in Moab's nicest hotel - the Gonzo Inn (800-791-4044). We are arranging for a group discount, and please inquire for the group code upon registration. The Gonzo is in the center of Moab and right around the corner from several places to eat and drink. Workshop participants are encouraged to stay at the Gonzo Inn but there are several alternate options nearby.

Getting there

There are several ways of getting to the Moab area. Those flying into the are should consider flying into Grand Junction (GJT) if possible, or Salt Lake City (SLC) if GJT is not an option. Here are route recommendations for those driving from Grand Junction, Salt Lake, the Bay area and Denver.

I am extremely excited to offer this workshop again. My previous workshops to the area quickly sold out and brought participants in from around North America and Europe, and it’s easy to see why this area appeals to poeple from such far away places. If you have any questions or thoughts about this workshop or about traveling to this location, please contact us at Hope to see you there!

To be placed on a waiting list or to be notified of alternative dates if there is enough demand, please email me at so I can register your interest.
