About This Class

Stocksy Photographer Kevin Russ (@kevinruss) is known for his immersive, experiential approach to photography. He's able to capture some of the most authentic and beautiful images of people he encounters and places he goes.

In this 30-minute class, you'll join Kevin in Salton Sea, California where he experiences a day in the desert with his friend Cuervo, a desert cowboy and his two mules. Kevin shares stories of his experiences taking photos on the road, sharing inspiring and insightful tips on how photography reflects your immersion in a place, and why experience is the cornerstone to your work.

Inspired by Kevin's passion for meaningful adventure and photography, you'll leave this class excited to get out and take photos of a subject and the place you experience. Share them with the class, share them on Instagram and most importantly, approach your experience with a sense of wonder.


Stocksy United is home to a curated collection of royalty-free stock photography that's beautiful, distinctive and highly usable.

Because every photo is vetted, every shot has earned a place. So, no filler, no cheesy poses...and no more hours of searching for the right image.

Thank you so much for an awesome course Kevin, I really enjoyed your videos; I feel inspired to get out there and shoot my experience. I usually look for the perfect moment to take a photo with either no people in the frame or the perfect light however I am inspired by your class to be more fluid and go with the flow. Photograph what is happening rather than waiting for the perfect moment which may never come. Thank you once again, your work is awesome!
