Winding mountain roads, aspen filled valleys, towering mountains, crystal clear lakes and stunning artists light overwhelm the senses in the Ridgway/Telluride area in the fall. This beautiful mountain setting is the one of the best places in the country to shoot fall colors and we will take full advantage of it. Last Dollar Road and Dallas Divide are just a few of the amazing locations we will be visiting during this three day instructional workshop.
Dan is a very passionate and creative teacher and he will spend a large amount of the workshop instructing. He will give several group lectures as well as one-on-one instruction to each student catering to everyone's personal photographic level. Along with capturing stunning images of the changing aspens, the main focus of this workshop will be teaching ideas on creating strong powerful images from conception to print.

Lodging is up to each individual participant. Dan will be staying at The Ridgway Lodge & Suites and encourages participants to stay here so that it is easier for us to all convene and conclude the days activities with a minimum of travel. However, you are welcome to stay anywhere you would like. When making your reservation at The Ridgway Lodge you will need to call the local number 800-368-5444 & tell them you are part of the Dan Ballard Photography Workshop. A block of rooms has been reserved with 2 queen beds each for 98.10 & taxes a night. If you would like to share a room Dan can help with that.
Transportation to & from the Ouray-Ridgway area is up to each individual participant. There is an airport in Grand Junction & one in Telluride as well. Driving conditions will consist mainly of paved roads, so a standard car should be sufficient. When possible we prefer that participants car pool with each other.
