Death Valley:

Land of Extremes

Trip Overview
Death Valley National Park is the largest national park in the contiguous United States. Its vast wilderness encompasses mountains, dunes, salt flats, playas, and badlands. It is a land of extremes; it is the hottest place on Earth (the hottest temperature ever recorded was at Furnace Creek in the park), the driest in the North America, and is home to the lowest point in North America (Badwater Basin sits at 282 feet below sea level).

The park is one of the premier landscape photography destinations in the world. Its incredible geology and diverse landscapes offer photographers many perspectives.

This photography excursion focuses on desert landscapes with the oft chance for some night photography as well. We will experience all that Death Valley has to offer on this trip, from towering sand dunes to groves of Joshua Trees. We will visit iconic locations, such as Badwater Basin, the Mesquite Sand Dunes, Artist’s Palette, and Zabriskie Point. We also photograph hidden gems that our guides have discovered after years of visiting the park – this includes vast playas with mud cracks, unique salt basins, mountain overlooks, and more!

The workshop dates are well planned and aligned with the phenology of the park. If there is a wildflower bloom event we will be there to capture it and the winter timing allows us to photograph Death Valley in comfortable weather conditions.

This workshop starts and ends in Las Vegas, NV. Las Vegas provides the closest major and/or regional airport (Death Valley is remote!) and is a short 2-hour drive from the park.

Lodging includes a hotel inside the national park for the week, which is central to many photo locations, as well as nearby dining options.

You’ll get ample one on one time with your instructor and improve your photography in one of the world’s most beautiful and iconic national parks. Aside from the fun you’ll experience with your fellow photographers you’ll leave this trip with a highly expanded portfolio of excellent images and a wealth of memories. Join us today for the trip of a lifetime to photograph iconic Death Valley!

  • A Great Experience!

    What a great experience! The trip was well-organized from start to finish. Great photography locations from deep jungle to beach to river boat to night hikes. The schedule kept us busy but never hectic, and the accommodations were super comfortable. Shout out to our guide Ben - we saw so much wildlife! I'd highly recommend a trip with them.


  • In October I traveled with BCJ to Joshua Tree Natl Park for their night sky photography trip. This was my third trip with BCJ and I just reserved another trip. I keep coming back to this company because of the great experiences I'm having. I love the small groups and excellent guides. 


  • This was my first trip with Backcountry Journeys. It was excellent, and I have since booked two more trips. The itinerary, and the guides were excellent.
