Why don't i see red rock or calico basin on the list?

Unfortunately, over the past few years, the BLM has changed the way they enforce some of their park regulations. While it seems to depend on who you speak to in the office, the safest way to shoot at these locations is to pay for a $250+ permit. I would hate for your session to be cut short or interrupted if we didn't have the proper permits. If these locations appeal to you, this permit fee will be added to your session cost.

 

Are you willing to try new locations?

Always! If you see or hear of a location that you don't see on this list, let me know! I will research the location to find out if there are any permits required and go scout out the location to see if it will be a good fit for your session. Sometimes you'll help me find a new favorite spot! Some other options include Mt Charleston & Lake Las Vegas — these locations need permits; please ask to see examples of these locations.
