Epic landscape, a great location, stunning models and Canon—it can’t get any better! Join us for this unique workshop experience at the Ghost Town in Nelson, Nevada.

The Ghost Town:

Located 50 minutes south of Las Vegas, this historic town has a wide variety of photographic opportunities. Vintage cars, eclectic antiques, rustic barns and even a plane wreck movie prop—all with an epic desert landscape. And while the town itself is an inspiring subject for landscape and macro photography, you will also have the opportunity to work with professional models to capture unique portraits and fashion images. Whether you enjoy landscape, macro, portrait/fashion photography or all three—this workshop is for you!
