Getting BACK to Travel, Nature, and Photography in the Great Outdoors! 

Join MPA on the awesome new tour! 

David and Ally just returned from a personal trip to Moab as they couldn’t wait to get back there and show family members the amazing wonders of the area. While there, and being awestruck, they knew it was time to share this place once again with others! 

Moab, UT is truly full of wonder.  From over 2000 arches in the area to some of the deepest canyons in the world, Moab is extraordinary! Join us as we return after a long break from leading a tour in one of our favorite areas in the United States! 

We will be exploring and photographing both iconic Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, as well as Dead Horse State Park. In the past, we have been limited on time to one day in each park. With this new tour, we will have plenty of time to really see and photograph MUCH MORE! 

As part of our new RV Photography Tribe series, you have options to join us at the RV park we will be staying at, rent a cabinet in the same location, or if you prefer, many hotels are located within walking distance!  

For those of you that sign up early, get a BONUS FREE two days of photography in Monument Valley! 

April 27th – May 2nd, 2021

Monument Valley 3rd-4th

For those that LOVE to RV and Camp, this is for you!  If you do not own an RV, there are several options. But the easiest is to rent one of the wonderful cabins at the location we stay! 

Please note that due to the COVID crisis, we are limiting the size of these groups even more!

 This is a FIRST COME FIRST SERVE on reservations by clicking the registration link below. 


Optional AMAZING Animals of Montana Sessions! April 25th and 26th! 

MPA has worked with Animals of Montana for many years.  The last time we were able to work with them on location in Moab was over 4 years ago!  This is a VERY LIMITED opportunity to do this and may not happen again!  The coordination and permit efforts are huge, but we have worked very hard to make this happen! 

We love Troy and Meghan and all they do for us as well as their wonderful treatment of these beautiful animals. Those that have had the experience of working with them and us, come away with an incredible sense of the beauty of animals, and an understanding and appreciation for animals and nature. 

This is YOUR opportunity to be up close and photograph animals such as a Mountain Lion jumping cliffs on the rocks of Moab! 


A Photographic excursion for ALL LEVELS including
Beginner through Advanced!

VERY LIMITED SPACE is available on this tour! ONLY ONE TIME for 2021!
As always, we expect this tour to sell out! Don’t miss it!
