  A Sheography™ Women's Photography Workshop

Arches National Park



2 spots open!

DATES: March 4-8, 2023
COST: $1695/person
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately strenuous. Best suited for active, sure-footed participants who are capable of hiking up to two-miles roundtrip on uneven, rocky, or sandy uphill terrain while carrying their gear.


Calling all the ladies! Since 2011, Colleen's all-women's workshops have helped inspire photographic growth, personal development, wanderlust, and life-long friendships. And Sheography™ aims to continue that, to help women of all ages, backgrounds, and photographic skill become "the woman you were meant to be through the art of photography and adventure."

Join Colleen and other Sheographers™ for an exciting women’s-only photography adventure based out of Moab, where we'll explore photography, creativity, and life in not one, but two of Utah's most beautiful national parks: Arches and Canyonlands. Awe-inspiring arches, soaring spires, and breathtaking vistas await!

The workshop will start with introductions and a casual welcome dinner on Saturday night. On Sunday morning through Wednesday morning, we'll put our photography skills and workshop learnings in inspiring field locations like Broken Arch, Courthouse Towers, the Windows section, Green River Overlook, and other lesser-known locations.

Attendees will have ample opportunity to ask questions, experiment, and get immediate feedback through a blend of field-based, classroom, and image review sessions. In an learning-intensive, supportive, and all-women's group, where pushing ourselves to try new things will be encouraged, attendees will learn how to:

And you’ll have a blast doing so!

**NOTE: Due to overcrowding at Delicate Arch at sunset and Mesa Arch at sunrise, our group will not be visiting either of these locations during the workshop. If photographing these iconic spots is important to you, please plan on adding additional time before or after the workshop to do so on your own.**

“Colleen Miniuk’s skillful knowledge of photography seamlessly translates to her wisdom of the human spirit and the quest for creative expression. It was a delight to get to experience her process and get to know her during a Moab Sheography workshop. Don’t walk, run to register for one of her workshops.”
~Lucia C., 2022 Moab Sheographer

“Colleen's passion and enthusiasm inspires you to find and express your creativity in your photography. You feel small in the vast beauty of Canyonlands and the Arches but your images will be grand!”
~Pam D., 2022 Moab Sheographer

“The number one criteria I look for in a photography workshop is the leaders ability to teach. I had experienced a couple of webinars with Colleen where she illustrated visual creativity. She has a beautiful gift to teach and to stretch a person’s ability to think out of their box. I also like that Colleen chooses shooting locations that are non-typical, offering a fresh perspective to create one’s own vision.” ~Kaylyn F., 2022 Death Valley Sheographer

"I really appreciated Colleen's interest in and support of my personal photographic goals. Her photographic knowledge and ability to communicate that to her students is outstanding, but what made the workshop stand out for me was her unending enthusiasm, her obvious joy in seeing her students blossom, and her encouragement to experience a well-rounded creative life." - Jeanie S., 2019 Moab Sheographer

"Take the beauty of 2 Utah National Parks. Add one very enthusiastic and knowledgeable photographer instructor, ten strangers, some challenges and even a geology lesson. Simmer and share for five days. Results in stronger photograph composition, personal confidence and new friends. You gotta try it! IT ROCKS!" - Pat S., 2019 Moab Sheographer

"The recent Moab trip was my second workshop with Colleen and I can't wait to attend more. The learning experience is so positive and I leave with "nuggets" every time. Colleen finds new and fun ways to help us tap into our creative side which can help us take our photos to the next level." - Cathy P., 2019 Moab Sheographer

"This was my first Sheography workshop and found the female companionship and friendliness of the group very comfortable and helpful." - Ella S., 2019 Moab Sheographer
