Expedition + Workshop: Star Photography

  • Salt Flats, Utah

Join photographer and Unsplash Ambassador Greg Rakozy, for a sunset BBQ followed by a mini hands-on workshop on night photography and capturing stars in the night sky.

Ever wanted to take photos of the milky way or starscapes? We will be photographing one of the most unique places in the world, the salt flats. We'll catch golden hour & sunset, grill up some burgers and hot dogs, and host a workshop on how to take star photos. Then after the sun has set and the stars come out, we'll go take some photos!


The Bonneville Salt Flats are found west of the Great Salt Lake, in western Utah. They cover a large area and have a very unique environment. The flats can easily be seen as you drive I-80 between Salt Lake City and Wendover, NV.

The famous Bonneville Speedway is located in the western portion of the flats, near Wendover. It is perfectly flat and has a thick crust of salty soil. It looks like a frozen lake bed covered with snow. No vegetation grows in that area.

In other places, low mountains and hills break up the flat landscape. Sparse vegetation grows on hillsides and is pushing into the flat areas. On hot days, heat waves rise from the salty soil and create mirages that look amazingly real. If you believe your eyes, the dry desert looks like it is covered by water.

Golden Hour Bar-B-Que
6 PM - 8 PM

We'll meet at the Bonneville Speedway (rest stop off I-80) at 6 PM. From 6:30-8 PM we will enjoy golden hour. Meanwhile, we'll grill up some burgers & hotdogs and socialize. You're welcome to stay for our workshop.

Star Photography Basics Workshop
8 PM - 12 AM

As the sun sets and the stars rise, we'll talk about the basics of taking star photos. We'll talk about camera settings, lens choices & settings, techniques, and post editing basics. After our workshop we'll go out, take some photos and get one-on-one mentorship.

Things you'll need to bring

  • Camera gear - bring a dslr, mirrorless, film, iPhone, gopro, etc. They will all do!
  • Bring your own drinks - we'll provide the food.
  • Clothes for the location - It's salt, things can get messy. Also Spring
  • Chair or blanket - something hang out on during our workshop
  • Tripod - for those super steady shots or groupies!
  • Headlamp/flashlight - it'll be dark and you need to see
  • Friends - the more, the merrier!

Things to keep in mind

To get the best shots, we will be leaving the rest stop and going onto the salt flats. Vehicles are allowed but 4-wheel drive/AWD vehicles are best. We'll carpool to reduce the amount of environmental impact.

There is about a 2 hour wait period from sunset to star rise. While the best time to capture stars is 2-4 AM, we'll be shooting from 10 PM - Midnight. You're welcome to stay later.
