Route 66 – The Mother Road - March 2017

Route 66 – The Mother Road

Keith Skelton Photo


Get ready for the iconic road trip on the Mother Road. Route 66!

Come with me on my third annual workshop touring the sites along the old Mother Road – Route 66! We won’t be touring from Chicago to LA but we will be touring from Victorville CA. to Holbrook AZ… more than 450 miles!

Last years trip was a total success and I have thoroughly scouted and photographed our route. We will make many iconic photographs of structures that are classic and quaint and others represent desolation and memory. See my 2016 Route 66 photo gallery. 2015 Workshop photos HERE

We will shoot photos from sunrise to sunset and also do some night photography of the road and signage. There will be moonless nights. The route includes driving on the interstate where the old route ceases to exist. This is truly a road trip. We will drive to at least 30 different locations. There will also be a few Route 66 museums and classic cafes we will stop at.
This schedule will be casual and fluid depending on weather, how fast we move as a group and what we find. Many of the structures along the highway are in flux and deteriorating. So its best to see Route 66 now!

The Winter Landscape – Eastern Sierra

The Winter Landscape – Eastern Sierra

Keith Skelton Photo


Photographing winter landscapes can be one of the most difficult, yet rewarding types of photography. Whether you are shooting a wide landscape or a single snowflake, the less than ideal conditions can challenge even the most experienced photographer. We will strive to make a great photographs in what ever is presented to us… snow, fog, sun, or clouds. Adverse conditions can almost always lead to great photos.

SEE 2016 PHOTOS HERE

The workshop will be based in Lee Vining, California. The day will begin by discussing the topics above before heading out to shoot photos. We will be looking for winter scenery and shoot various scenes under varying lighting conditions. Exact locations will be determined by the weather and light.
In the evenings we can process and share photographs with our laptops and discuss color and BW Lightroom techniques.

Urban Abstractions – One Day in Los Angeles




Urban Abstractions – One Day in Los Angeles


Join Keith Skelton for a one day walk about in downtown Los Angeles discovering photo abstractions and new way of seeing. This is not “street photography” per se, but a journey of discovery to find hidden jewels that lie in front of our eyes. We will be looking for art in structures and in light. We will try to break some of our habitual ways of seeing and free some of our locked-in camera techniques.

Open to all levels of photographers.

Wide, close up and long lenses are recommended.

This class will be limited to 8 people.

We will meet at Los Angeles Union Station.

The class will be about 6-7 hours long and may run into the evening hours and we will have a mid day break for lunch.

Exact meeting times will be emailed to you. Contact me with any questions.

2017 Photo Workshop Update!





Hello again!

There are three openings for my North Rim Grand Canyon Workshop October 1-5, 2017. A couple of larger cabins are available. This is a perfect time to witness the canyon beauty and golden aspens. Also, there are four openings for my Death Valley Workshop November 12-15, 2016. We will be photographing the full moon rise over the landscape! Rooms are included in the price.

The beginning of 2017 will be busy with workshops scheduled every month!

ROUTE 66 - THE MOTHER ROAD - MARCH 23-26, 2017

MONUMENT VALLEY - FULL MOON RISING - APRIL 8-12, 2017

I've lost count how many times Ive been to Monument Valley and it still is one of my favorite places to photograph. We will photograph the full moon rise over the Mittens, Valley of the Gods, Muley Point, Anasazi Ruins “House on Fire” and much more.

NEVADA GHOST TOWNS - MAY 18-21, 2017

There are numerous other ghost towns and abandoned mines throughout the area of Esmeralda and Nye counties including Aurora, Belleville, Belmont, Berlin, Blair, Candelaria, Gold Point, Klondike, Manhattan, Metallic City, Rays, Silver Peak, Stateline, Weepah, and more. Some these towns are still populated and others barely exist. Goldfield itself has many photo attractions including the cemetery, the Goldfield Hotel, the active historic County Courthouse and numerous old buildings and houses. There is also The International Car Forest of the Last Church which is a hoot to photograph. Our home base will be in Tonopah which also has many attractions including the Historic Mining Park, the Mizpah Hotel and the WW2 wooden aircraft hangers at the airport. This class will sell out quickly.

Ive just scouted White Sands National Monument and will be scouting the Palouse next month. As soon as permits are secured I will be announcing the itineraries for both locations!
