About
We will visit at least two world class locations for photography in Utah's Canyonlands in the morning (sunrise), as well as several great spots in iconic Arches National Park in the afternoon (sunset). I have traveled extensively in search of amazing photographic locations, and it is hard to beat Arches, Dead Horse Point and the Islands in the Sky district of Canyonlands National Park. I will show you great locations, and make suggestions on composition and subject matter. I can even help you with your camera settings if you are a beginner. We will take a break for lunch (not included) during the middle of the day when the light is not as good.

Right place. Right time!
May 2021
It was such a pleasure to spend a few days with Colin in Moab. He knew all the best places to go and the right time to be there. I also appreciated that he was very flexible with the shooting locations. At the last minute we had to bring our dog with us so Collin arranged for photo shoots at some areas outside of the national parks where we could bring the dog. I would highly recommend this trip. If you are wanting to up your photography skills, Collin is definitely the one to help.

Moab - Sunset to Sunrise
Apr 2021
I had not visited Moab in over 15 years and wanted to photograph the Milky Way. I had an approximate date (new moon) and contacted Colin. I told him what I was looking for and my expertise level and he took it from there. All I had to do was show up. He was very engaging, gave great history and talking points about Arches NP and provided training opportunities along the way. I will definitely book with him again - perhaps in Estes NP.

Colin was awesome! We had three generations and he was great with the grandkids and grandparents. Routes were picked with attention to ability and great photography tips. Can’t wait to do again in Estes Park this summer.

Great Tour with a Great Photographer
Sep 2020
Colin Young is a great photographer and teacher who is very familiar with the area. He took us to some wonderful places and showed us some different spots to shoot photos from that most people don't know about. He was good about offering advice and even helped me out when my camera failed on me! I highly recommend his tour and will definitely be seeing him again.

Great Photography Guide!
Oct 2019 • Couples
My husband and I hired Rock Light Photography for a guided photography tour of Dead Horse Point and Canyonlands National Park in October 2019. Colin was great at taking us to interesting locations, recommending compositions, and providing insight on the area. I got some great photos, and my husband (a non-photographer) also enjoyed the tour. I would highly recommend Rock Light Photography if you're looking for a personalized photography experience in the Moab area. Colin also offers photo workshops, and opportunities in Colorado.

Sep 2019 • Friends
Colin was a terrific guide, knowledgeable and extremely helpful since we are amateur photographers. The only downside to the trip was that all 4 of us could not be in the same car with Colin and benefit from insight together. It would have been better if Colin ‘s vehicle could accommodate at least a party of 4.
