As the details and bookings are being finalised for the 2017 epic road trip adventure it gives me a great excuse to share with you my passion for what has to be one of the finest locations for photography on the planet; The Wild West of the USA. The high desert of Arizona, the Canyons of Utah and the rock formations of Nevada deliver a spectacular backdrop while Route 66 and small town America provide us with a texture and cultural heritage to be cherished.

01. I first visited Kingman in Arizona in 2012 and I took the top shot here with my Fuji X-Pro1 and the 60mm f/2.8 prime lens. The school bus is such an American icon that I couldn’t resist this shot in 2016 taken on a prototype Fujifilm X-T2. Strong use of vivid colour is the American way.

I’ll be making my third visit to this spectacular part of the world in June this year as co tour leader for an 8 day trip with a group of 12 photographers. I’ll be joined by my fellow Tutor Martin Hill. Martin is an expert with flash and we will be upping the ante this year with the wonderful Godox Witsro AD600BM, AD360ii and AD200 flash heads.  Julie my wife and expert photographer will be touring with us to provide vital admin support and to capture the remarkable scenery no doubt. That will leave Martin and I to concentrate on the photography guidance. We are both very giving people and freely share our skills
