March 7 - 14, 2020
Along Route 66 – Ghost Towns of the Mojave
Ghost towns give a glimpse into the history, stark beauty, and shattered dreams of bygone days. Between the cacti, sand dunes, and rocky wastelands, we’ll explore forgotten mining towns, abandoned gas stations, forsaken homesteads and abandoned trailers. As in our previous ghost town photo tours, we’ll also have time to explore and photograph during the best light possible.
Join renowned landscape photographers David Cobb and Christian Heeb to create stunning images of these historic towns; with time to explore and practice shooting details, landscapes and night photography of these remote communities of yesteryear. The tour kicks off the evening of March 7, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
