A Passion for Wilderness, Education, and Travel

Photography Workshops

Our night photography workshops offer you an unparalleled level of personal attention by a world-class expert because our class sizes are small and Brad never brings his own cameras to a class. Every aspect of your experience has been carefully planned out because we have meticulously plotted a course to give you the most unique compositions, best times, and favorite spots only the most committed instructor would share. Goldpaint Photography, LLC has built a long-standing relationship with the National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, and other governing agencies to secure mandated Commercial Use Authorization permits. He always carries insurance, certifications, as well as being First Aid and CPR qualified.

“I just did my fourth workshop with Brad, so I’m certainly a satisfied student. This workshop focused on photographing the night sky while working with moon light, which was a new experience. It definitely expanded my horizons for when conditions are right to shoot the night sky. Brad is a great teacher who is continually expanding his knowledge and approach to night sky photography. Although many of the fundamentals I learned from Brad in my first workshop in 2013 still apply, I continue to learn more from Brad with every workshop. The amount of preparation that goes into Brad’s workshops is amazing.”

I combine my passions with photography by teaching night sky workshops to people just like you.
