Private Workshops w/ Joseph Rossbach

If you would like to benefit from a highly individualized level of instruction and location guidance, consider the option of booking a private workshop with me at the location of your choice worldwide. I will tailor the experience to accommodate the specific interests, goals, experience, and physical capabilities of an individual or small group. I am able to offer only a few private workshop sessions each year, so booking well in advance is the best way to ensure that you will be able to reserve the trip of your choice. The cost of a private booking is $800 per day for the first person and an additional $150 per person thereafter, with a limit of five participants. Travel expenses, if applicable, are calculated in advance at a per diem rate. Please use the Contact page of this website to inquire about private workshop opportunities and details:

Client Testimonials

“Want to save time AND money AND get those amazing shots you’ve always dreamed of? Then instead of trying to do it on your own and wasting time scrambling around, fighting for space with a bunch of tourists etc, sign up here and let Joe get you to all the best spots at the best times with the best light. There is one problem though... I just returned from this 2015 workshop and I don’t know when I’m gonna get time to work on all these epic shots I/we got. I guess that’s a good problem, right?

One more thing for those that have never been to Zion or these amazing slot canyons... There isn’t a photo out there that can do justice to the sheer size and beauty that you’ll experience. This is seriously one epic “trip”, and I am so stoked I went with Joe and brought home the goods!!! ”


“I have been out with Joe three times. Once on a tour to Zion national park, once to West Virginia in fall, and 3 days of private touring in Glacier National Park. Working with Joe has done two things. First, I have improved my composition immensely. I find myself spending a lot of time with Joe focused on how he visualizes images in the scene. Second, it has increased my knowledge of an area. Joe freely shares all he thinks about an area, and especially on private tours, expect to hike and see things you don’t normally see photographed. I recommend him without reservation. ”


“I have had the privilege of experiencing two workshops with Adventures in Light; Zion & Page and The Best of the Pacific Northwest. Each was a great learning experience and also tremendous fun! Through his guidance in the field and post processing instruction he has taken my photography to a new level. Joe does his homework to ensure that everyone experiences the best possible light in the best locations. He has a great way of bringing the group together to ensure a truly memorable workshop. I suggest you sign up and see for yourself! ”


“Joe is a remarkable photographer…his images are just breathtaking. When you attend one of Joe’s workshops you get this full attention and you walk away a better photographer. His engaging personality makes the experience all that much better!”


“I attended the West Virginia Waterfalls weekend in May, and it was a superb experience. Joe is hardly satisfied with snapping photographs from overlooks, so I truly enjoyed climbing and hiking along with him to reach more unique locations. You can be sure to return with original photographs on one of his workshops. I plan to return for more.”


“Thanks again for all the good things you taught me. The possibilities are endless.”


“I highly recommend Joseph Rossbach’s workshops. His knowledge of photography and artistic talent are outstanding and he is an attentive and personable teacher. His workshops provide an excellent mixture of training and experience so that participants gain fully from Joe’s knowledge.”


“I went last year. It was fantastic and Joe was awesome. GO!”
