West Texas Photo Excursion

April 12, 2018 - April 15, 2018


The geography and culture of West Texas is beautiful and unique. Filled with rocky peaks, wild cactus, and desert grasslands, this region is a wonder to capture with the photographic eye.

Precision Camera is teaming up with photographer Mandy Lea to offer an adventurous workshop capturing the beautiful landscape of West Texas. Mandy will guide you to locations throughout Big Bend National Park including the Chisos Basin, Santa Elena Canyon and the Rio Grande River. In addition to exploring the National Park, you will also have the opportunity to see the surrounding areas of the Terlingua Ghost Town and the Big Bend Ranch State Park.

In addition to helping you understand camera settings, composition and lighting tips, we will end the workshop with brief tips for editing and a photo critique. The fee includes the workshop only. Transportation, lodging and food are not included.

Recommended Lodging

We recommend staying at the Big Bend Resort & Adventures in Terlingua. The group will explore both the National and State parks and Terlingua is very central. This location also offers both the option of a motel or camping for those who prefer.
