WHAT IS THE ACTIVITY LEVEL LIKE?

Our Big Bend UNIQUE / Workshops do not require a great deal of hiking / walking.  Usually, our shooting locations only require us to travel less than 1/4 mile from our vehicles.  However, there are some considerations for our students regarding the physical requirements of our workshops and in-field shooting sessions.  Students should be able to:

  • Walk unassisted over uneven terrain while carrying their camera equipment

  • Traverse and manage terrain that includes uneven rocks, loose sand/gravel, and level changes

  • Stand or be on their feet several hours (don't worry, you can bring chairs!)

  • Successfully maneuver and negotiate walking at night by flashlight in a rocky, desert environment

If you have specific questions about the physical aspects of our workshops, contact Tony via email at tony@319photography.com
