We’ll pick you up at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix and you’ll begin your trip in Sedona, voted the most beautiful place in America by the USA Today travel editors. From this magnificent region we go north into the backcountry of Northern Arizona and Southern Utah. Whether you are a beginner with a new digital camera, or a seasoned pro, the scenery will take your breath away and the photographs will last a lifetime! All accommodations and lunches are included and your guide will be a photography instructor, so that you can learn as much as you’d like in surroundings that will develop lifelong skills. Some guests leave their cameras at home, and just enjoy the beautiful southwest scenery.

Lunches, transportation and hotel/motel rooms are customized to your specific needs and budget. We can also provide care and travel to those with special physical requirements.
