Sedona Photo Adventure

Overview

This a half day tour designed for those with a passion for photography who want to discover some special locations in Sedona, as well as those interested in having their photos taken in beautiful natural settings -- much better than a selfie.

 

I'll take you to the right place at the right time so you can enjoy the sights more and drive around less. In a few days after completing the tour, you will receive the best photos of your visit and be able to use them at full resolution; picture yourself among the red rocks of Sedona in a big print hanging on your wall!

You should be in good physical condition since our hikes involve walking on nature trails which, at times, may require some scrambling or dealing with loose rocks, but nothing dangerous or very strenuous. We will have a break between the hikes when you get a chance to recharge, have a snack and discuss any technical details related to photography and your experience.

Should you need photography tips, I'm very happy to help with photo techniques, composition and making the most of your time here.

Itinerary

  • We meet in Sedona at a location that will be communicated after booking your tour

  • We start with a hike along a trail in Sedona that will take us to superb views of the surroundings, as well as a little-known and hidden natural arch -- both locations are excellent for taking portraits.

  • Next stop is a spectacular cave with great views of the red rock mountains around

  • In late afternoon, we'll drive to a couple of locations to watch the sunset over Cathedral Rock, one of the tallest and most photogenic rock formations in Sedona.

Who is this tour for?

  • Photo enthusiasts and photographers of any level

  • For best results, a DSLR or mirrorless camera plus wide and telephoto lenses are highly recommended. Even the best smartphone today will not do justice to the variety of situations we'll meet on the tour

  • You only have a smartphone? No problem! Come for the ride and we'll take pro-level photos of the sites we visit and email you full resolution copies so you can go home with the best of both worlds!

A few notes (please read)

  • Very important: this tour requires moderate physical activity so anyone in good shape should be able to attend. However, this tour is not suitable for those using a wheelchair or having difficulty walking on uneven terrain

  • We recommend wearing hiking shoes or, even better, hiking boots and be able to carry enough water during our hikes (we will provide the water).

  • Please make sure to wear sunscreen and a sun hat, preferably a wide brim hat to protect yourself from sunburn

  • Children must be accompanied by an adult

  • The tour is subject to cancellation due to inclement weather conditions, but that's a remote possibility given Sedona's more than 270 days of full sunshine every year

  • One of the locations we visit is near the Oak Creek and the best views are just across -- you don't have to do it, but I highly recommend it. It's about 6-7 feet of walking in ankle deep water, but it's a bit slippery so it's best to use shoes for better grip. If you have some shoes that you don't mind getting wet it would be ideal. Alternatively, you can bring a pair of water shoes
