Moab, Glamour, Beauty and the Nude Photography Adventure
May 2, 2019 - May 6, 2019$2499
Moab Photography Adventure Overview
Ever want to get away, like to really get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and photograph beautiful models in the Moab desert and canyon lands? We’ve got an exclusive adventure deal just for you that allows you to shoot & learn. Fly into either Salt Lake City, Utah, or Grand Junction or Denver, Colorado, rent a car, preferably an SUV, and take the scenic drive down to Moab. That alone is worth the drive, and while Moab has a small regional airport, we recommend the drive.
Once in Moab, stay at our recommended hotel, or a hotel of your choice, then be prepared to shoot for two and a half solid days in the Moab environment plus a half day of photo critiques of your work. This semi-private hands-on adventure is very limited in size and provides a more intimate learning atmosphere than you’d find in a large photography workshop.
You pay for your own lodging, meals and travel, and we’ll provide suggestions of our recommended hotel of choice. We already have rooms blocked should you consider our recommendation.
You must be physically fit to walk a city block and lift 25 lbs. We will provide some lighting equipment, but don’t hesitate to bring your on camera flash if you’d like, though not required. There is light hiking, climbing is optional and not required.
You must have the passion to photograph up to four beautiful models. This type of landscape photography is fashion, glamour, beauty, and nude. The days are long, thus late dinners along with early mornings — you will get tired by the time you have to leave, but you will treasure every moment and leave with amazing photos. A landscape photographer’s dream, natural canyons, rock formations, and human nature.
Every past Moab photography adventure has included at least two photographers who have attended our previous Moab events, some more than once. Every Moab photography adventure sells-out due to its limited size.
Camera requirements are any type of camera, preferably 35mm DSLR or mirrorless, medium or large format photography is optional. Lens focal range, from 24mm to 300mm, though a typical 70-200mm lens is all you need. A back-up drive to download your images every evening and/or a laptop computer is highly recommended. Professionalism is required, we’re there to capture beautiful images of beautiful models in a remote, but beautiful location. Safety is number one.

Our number one concern is your safety, the models safety, and the group as a whole, safety. When you sign up for the Moab Photography Adventure, you do so with the understanding that your safety is your responsibility, in layman’s terms, you are doing this photography adventure at your own risk and fully understand we are on natural land surrounded by nature, canyons, cliffs, rocks, etc. We do not control nature or Mother Nature and even though we provide a safety briefing on location, you accept and assume all responsibility for your safety and indemnify Americano Dream and its employees, and/or Rolando Gomez from all liability when it comes to your safety and well-being. If you use common sense, you will not experience any safety issues, but understand, it’s your responsibility to stay and act safe.
You must bring your own camera equipment and we recommend any mirrorless or DSLR digital camera, but bring what you are comfortable with. Your lens range should be from at least 24mm to 200mm. As a minimum, our favorite is an f/2.8, 70-200mm zoom lens. Another lens favorite is a 24mm to 80mm zoom. Prime lenses like an 85mm are nice too, but not required. Bring a spare battery and plenty of digital storage cards and either a laptop or some type of drive to back up your photos each day.
Photography Knowledge Requirement Level
This workshop is open to all levels, but places an emphasis that you seriously want to capture some great photos and take your photography up to the next level. Our only knowledge requirement is that you know how to turn the camera on, we’ll help you with the rest, from white balance to aperture settings and the best ISO and shutter speed settings too. Plus we’ll show you what to look for to get it right in the camera.
You are free to bring a guest at no additional charge from us, with the understanding they will not interfere with the group while conducting photography. They are welcome to walk with us as we see the beautiful Moab landscapes, though you are responsible for all their expenses, safety, and well being. They are also welcome at all breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
Meals and Drinks
You are responsible for all your meals and drinks. The idea of not making this an “all-inclusive” event is this allows you to choose what you like, not what we like to eat or drink. This concept saves everyone money and allows everyone to order, eat and drink what they want. We also allow any photographer to purchase a meal for our models.
Model releases for this event is $100 per model at the end of the event ($400 total for the entire event). These are mandatory releases, not optional like other workshops, paid on the last day of the event. These releases are provided and allow you to use the images for commercial use and the only restriction is prohibitions for adult related material — nudes are artistic and glamour nude only.
Weather and Clothing
You must be physically fit enough to walk at least one mile per day, so bring comfortable hiking shoes. Casual wear is appropriate, long pants recommended. The morning are a little cool in October, but on average the highs don’t exceed 75-degress Fahrenheit. . Some days can be warmer or colder, so it’s recommended you bring a comfortable coat .Sunrise will be around 7:16 a.m. and sunset around 7 p.m.
