Bonneville Salt Flats Photoshoot

How to Participate in the Bonneville Salt Flats Photoshoot

On Saturday, September 7th, from 2:30 p.m. to after sunset, the Wasatch Camera Club will be on the Bonneville flats to capture this unusual setting as well as use it as a backdrop for special subjects.

Our lighting plans will vary as the sunlight fades.  We plan to begin with full natural lighting, and then gradually switch to using LEDs or strobes for fill light when natural light is no longer sufficient.


Member Registration

To preserve the optimum photo experience we will limit the number of photographers using a lottery selection system. Registration will close Monday, August19. You will be notified by email of your status. Also, your email will be used for last-minute instructions and other pertinent information. 

Talent Registration

The club will welcome a certain number of models, dancers, performers and other talented individuals who participate in the Bonneville Salt Flats Photoshoot. In return for your time, we’ll provide some extraordinary images for you, or your group’s portfolio at no charge.

Talent Registration Here. Registration is required so we can provide you with instructions, last minute details and directions. We can only select a limited number of participants because we want to make sure everyone is photographed in sufficient numbers. We may not be able to take everyone, but we will try our best.

You will be asked to sign a standard photo release. If you’re under 18, we’ll need you to have a parent or guardian sign the release as well.

You are welcome to bring props, changes of clothes and other items to that you’d like to have included in your photographs.

A makeup artist will be on hand at no charge, if you choose to use her/his services.

There are no services on this location. Bring plenty of liquids and snacks if you like. We will have an outdoor toilet with limited privacy.

Additional Notes – For Everyone

We haven’t had any difficulties in the past, but please no drugs, alcoholic beverages, working firearms or nudity.
