What's Your Experience?
On a Motorcycle? Expert experience is not necessary as long as you are comfortable riding on the motorcycle you bring. You are responsible for your riding skills. If you are not use to riding on high mountain passes, it can be breathtaking and a little scary for some so just take your time and ride at your comfortable speed. We will be stopping from time to time for photographs. All the roads are paved and we will not be riding at high speeds so relax and ENJOY.

With Photography? That's my job , is to teach photography no matter what your level of knowledge is . You will walk away a better photographer. I do suggest a digital camera that can be set to manual exposure so you can learn something other than point and shoot. I will go over cameras, lighting, composition and exposure. In the evenings and maybe mornings we will be going over uploading images to your computer and editing for the best quality.
Pre-Day 1 - Meet in Colorado Springs for a couple of hours in the evening to get to know each other and discuss lessons and the trip.
Day 1 - Meet for breakfast at 8am then head out for Aspen with a few stops on the way for photographs and lessons. Download images and a few lessons on Photoshop in the evening.
Day 2 - Up at 5 am for sunrise shots,...breakfast,...ride to Gunnison over McClure Pass and over the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Then it's time for dinner and more Photoshop.
Day 3 - A few lessons in the morning, then back to Colorado Springs over Monarch Pass and through the canyon along the Arkansas River. We should arrive back by 6pm on day 3.

What to bring
Because your in Colorado with varying temperatures between peaks an valleys, be prepared for both hot and cold... light and heavy coat, warm shoes or boots, warm gloves, layered clothes, rain suit, helmet for warmth and safety.
By all means don't forget your camera! You will also need a laptop to upload your images and editing software. I strongly suggest Photoshop but if you have a different software you like, please be familiar with that software. Make sure your software is on your laptop and running properly prior to the trip. A good zoom lens is your best option for your camera (convenience and space) but extra lenses are nice if you have room. Don't forget your charging cords and card readers if your laptop doesn't have one.
