Joshua Tree Night Sky Photography Workshop

Shoot the stars in the uniquely Californian landscape of Joshua Tree! Join us for this weekend of hands-on learning.

Joshua Tree National Park is a unique area that combines two deserts: the high Mojave Desert and the low Colorado Desert. With a rich backdrop of hills, rock structures, and its native Joshua trees, this ancient desert is a fascinating area for learning night sky photography.
