Just a 2 hour drive from Phoenix, Arizona is majestic Sedona, known for its iconic vistas, red rocks, canyons, sunrises, sunsets and it's unstoppable beauty. Summer in the desert is an amazing time of year because it is monsoon season which brings the chance to photograph epic storms, rainbows, and amazing sunsets. Sedona sits at 4500 feet in elevation which makes for cooler temperatures in the summer. The desert has attracted landscape photographers for decades, you truly have to see this place to believe it.

Come and spend 3 days in the desert with like-minded photography enthusiasts who enjoy photography as much as you do. We’ll spend our mornings and evenings chasing some of the best light and vibrant landscapes, working on composition, developing your personal style and helping you to come away with some great new images for print and your portfolio. 

We will shoot sunrise and sunset at different locations throughout the area. Mid afternoons will be spent working in a group as well as working one on one developing post processing and editing techniques, critiques and printing. 

Susan and Michael will scout shooting locations prior to the workshop to ensure the best possible photography experience. To learn more about Susan & Michael click here.

With two instructors on hand, the teacher to participant ratio is reduced, everyone will receive instruction that focuses on his/her specific learning objectives.
