The Racetrack Playa / Death Valley

Physical Requirements

  • Walking is required. Some locations require walking in (or up) to the vantage point (noted below).

  • Shooting is done at night, in the early morning and at sunset. 

  • Mid-day we are indoors - sleeping, eating or training on Lightroom. 

  • November has relatively mild temperatures (< 100F). 

Requirements for Specific Locations

Racetrack Playa is 3,700 ft elevation - all other locations are near sea level.

  • RACETRACK PLAYA - 30 mile drive in a BUMPY 4x4 vehicle - then we park next to the Racetrack. We walk about 1/2 mile on the racetrack. There is no restroom at the racetrack.

  • BADWATER - 1 mile walk in - and back

  • ARTISTS DRIVE/PALETTE - 1/4 mile walk

  • MESQUITE FLAT SAND DUNES - We have a good vantage point 1/2 mile walk in. You do not need to walk in the entire distance to shoot the dunes. We walk in to where we can find the dunes with no foot prints.

  • ZABRISKIE POINT - 1/4 walk up to the look out point

  • TWENTY MULE TEAM CANYON - Mostly shooting near the car - but we hike 20-30 yards up some of the cliffs - multiple times.

  • UBEHEBE CRATER - Drive to location
